You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet around here. The blog has continued at a bit of a reduced pace and I just haven’t had the time to be as active on social media. The main reason for that is that I’ve a taken a leap of faith, leaving my rather comfy job to take on a management role at Tea Drunk. Change is scary, especially for a worry wart such as myself, but it is also exciting and challenging. I work long hours but it has been amazing to have the chance to do something that I love.
My boss is currently on a buying trip to China and I’ve been holding down the fort at the tea house seven days a week. My poor boyfriend hardly sees me anymore but he’s been incredibly supportive and understanding. It’s hard work but I feel happier and more fulfilled than I have in a very long time. Some folks were worried that I might have to stop Tea for Me Please but I’m still as committed to this blog as ever.
Now that you know where I’ve been, I’m excited to tell you where I am going. World Tea Expo! I’ve been wanting to go to this event for years and came close last year but in the end, I wasn’t able to afford the airline tickets. I’m beyond excited to meet tea folks that I have been talking to online for years like Geoffrey Norman, Jen Piccotti and Ricardo Caicedo. I’ll technically be going there as press but I’ll also be using the opportunity to scout teaware distributors for Tea Drunk. The Tea Bloggers Roundtable is something that I am particularly looking forward to. Check out this nifty flyer for more info on that!
Tea has opened so many wonderful doors for me. I can’t help but feel grateful that I have so much to look forward to. Do you have any exciting plans coming up? I’d love to hear about them, especially if they involve tea 🙂
