Which tea can be better to sum up my day ? Like Marie-Antoinette, I feel like someone just cut my head ! And this is my boss (my N+1 as we have to say when we want to be taken seriously at work)

The company supposed to absorbe the one I am working for, has now some serious accounting difficulties meaning they probably will give up the activity represented by my company…fantastic…I’ve been told that they may, pershaps, manage to integrate my contract in the new company but not sure and “if I was considering to find another job they won’t hold a grudge towards me”…
My collegue won’t be reconducted and another one will probably be fired.

So even if I am trying not to repeat myself since almost 2 years that I made the worst mistake of my profesionnal life when I resigned from my previous job…I think I really have repeated this to myself 588 times since this afternoon.
But I am thinking too I probably won’t have to have 3 to 4 hours per day of train, subway, bus anymore…and won’t suffer anymore of the lack of ressources to do properly my job as I won’t have a job :)

Marie-Antoinette is a really pleasant tea with apples and roses, 2 flavours I appreciate a lot. I like the little astringency I get on the aftertaste and the strong tea base here.
This is loose leaf I get from my mom.
I really like it even if I am not very good tonight at expressing this.
I’ll do a better note soon.
At the moment I feel like a crazy Marie-Antoinette who somehow decapited herself by making a bad choice at a bad moment 2 years ago.

Wow! I hope things work out for you! And yes, at least you may be able to find a job with a better commute! That’s a good way of looking at things! :-)

I’m glad you got to try this tea! Sorry to hear about the work issues, but a bet there is something even better in store for you! Hang in there, and don’t lose your head! (sorry…I just had to say that…lol)

Hopefully things happen for a reason and you’ll find something much better for you if the worst you anticipate does happen. Hang in there.

I feel a little guilty about clicking ‘Like this’ – not really appropriate – there should be a ‘Sympathise with this’ button. My sympathies, Ysaurella.

thank you all :)

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
