Yes, Professional Tea Drinkers Do Exist, And Yes You Can Be One
Oh, the possibili-teas…
There’s nothing like a hot cuppa to calm the soul and reinvigorate the mind during a long work day. Or any type of day for that matter. From a fancy herbal blend to old favourite English Breakfast (milk and no sugar, thanks), we’re all about a fresh brew here at ten daily. Which is why this news made us stop and put down our cups.
Whimsically-named Canberra-based tea company Serendibitea has put the call out for professional tea drinkers. Yes, you read that right -- people who will sup a cup for a living. Or as the tea company specifies, those with a “professional approach to the drinking, enjoying and evaluating of tea.” If you know your Oolong from your Darjeeling and think you’re up for the job, read on.
Serendibitea has some rather specific prerequisites for the role. The ideal candidate will not only have a “demonstrated experience of mindful relaxation in outdoor settings,” but also an “exhaustive appreciation of designer hot beverages.” So you see, a lukewarm love of a simple cuppa simply won’t do.
If you reckon you’ll fit the role to a tea (oh yes, we went there) then head on over to their Facebook page to apply. Now that we’ve hopefully helped a tea-lover find their perfect job it’s time to pop the kettle on. Bliss.
