100
drank Caramel Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
504 tasting notes

So, aside from this tea being sweet and perfect to drink (aka I will be bringing it to work tomorrow), I wanted to bake with it!

Well – I wanted to bake with matcha, I was working on a cinnamon bread recipe and remember the caramel! Oh perfect match! I really wish I had some cinnamon matcha to use as well, but the caramel worked just fine for my gooey pull apart cinnamon bread. Happiness! It wasn’t as GREENTEA tasting as it was in my matcha cookies – I think because I got the robust flavour.

Well either way I will be bringing this tea to work tomorrow. It was my first day today and I am completely overwhelmed. How do I be the receptionist in a building of 450 people? I have to know all of their names or they snarl at me. God forbid I transfer a call to someone you’re not supposed to transfer to (hint: there is no way to know who doesn’t like calls transferred to them! No list! You just have to know!). So yeah I’m super stressed but it took 2 months to find a job so I think I just have to suck it up.

Blah! Well, recipe for the matcha bread is on my website. Somehow I’m still finding time for it. ha! http://www.daisychubb.com/recipe-caramel-matcha-pull-apart-cinna-bread/

Will Work For Tea

You’ll do fine, it just takes time and learning the ropes. :)

Your recipe looks amazing!

DaisyChubb

Thank you! And thank you again – You’re right, it was only the first day and every job is new and crazy! I hope it gets better :)

You’ll be fine once you figure out how things work. :) Soon you’ll be managing those phones like nobody’s business. Also, I agree this matcha is great for baking! I like it better in baked goods than drinking it.

Snarl back!

Kick them in the knee!

Don’t forget, it make take some time to learn the ropes there; but once you do—and you know all of the precious little in’s and out’s that very few others know—I doubt they’ll be snarling at you. Why? Because, “I’VE GOT THE POWER!”

Wow, I thought it was hard enough covering reception and switchboard for our office of 150. What I found the most helpful when I started was the list of hints, tips and tricks from the previous receptionist – see if s/he has notes of who doesn’t take calls, who works for whom, etc. It’s harder if the person has already left the job but there’s gotta be SOMEONE who knows, even if it’s just the relief people like me! Trust me, you WILL know all the names, connections and numbers a lot more quickly than you’d expect!

Practice makes perfect. And if there’s no list, make your own!

DaisyChubb

Thank you so much everyone!!!
I also just got a call from LUSH, they might want me for a management position! Ah all the job offers at once – I KNEW this would happen haha!

Because my new job right now is just a temp job (aka little pay and there are rumours that they’re getting rid of the position and giving it to a commissionaire – aka one days notice when they fire me) I might go for that one.

Decisions! Finally! haha ;)

Love you all to bits!

I saw that DT’s Micmac Mall location needs a manager too – just a thought! : )
ps – Lush is AWESOME!

Indigobloom

omg then you can always smell amazing AND have great tea :P

DaisyChubb

Excellent!
Thank you!! Yes – the great thing is that both Lush locations have DTs near them. So. Yeah. Heaven?
I applied at DT as well, so hopefully everything will work out! At least I have a job until then, even if I’m going crazy. Yay temp jobs!

no. Yay tea friends! yes!

In this economy, go for the permanent job.

Profile

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
