white earl grey (thanks darby!) and an herbal citrusy lavender from a company I will not name but am PEACING OUT ON so whatever. if you want to know more I have a massively long tl;dr but it’s worthwhile I think and I’ll msg you it.

I just have no idea how to quit, but I am sure not going in there Friday. I also do not give a single cookie about burning a bridge, because in my future profession a reference from a company a step above a shady used car dealership won’t help me :)

so yeah never buying their teas again but I’ll drink what I have because I only have ones that aren’t terrible. A customer actually came up with this and I was so excited by it I wanted to make it for her but of course that wasn’t allowed, god that entire model is STUPID. But thankfully I was doing nothing important as she was leaving with her cup so I was able to ask her how it was, and so I had to try it myself since she gave it a thumbs up.

It is good though. I just don’t like how the herbal is so moist all these pieces stick together. Not too fond though of white tea for an EG, it’s kind of bland. It really needs a black tea.

I would just write a simple letter stating that you formally resign as of insert date here. Life is too short to suffer through a crappy job, especially when there are other options.
In addition I have my own history with the-company-that-will-not-be-named and have never regretted quitting. ;)

Oh good job! You don’t need those lameos.

Blegh, that sucks :(

I am sad because you were so excited about it. I’m sorry that it didn’t end up being all that it could have been, but hey, upward and onward, eh? =)

Aw mandamo, I would love to hear your msg! Definitely onwards and upwards – you are a gem!

So I have been on Steepster very regularly for the last few months and the last thing I remembered was you interviewing, waiting and possibly getting the job and I thought she’s going to be very disappointed one day. Then I saw on a thread earlier today you mentioning you’re very brief stint, so I went looking through your tasting notes, hundreds of them, to find this. Cheers to you! Sorry you have to go through this first hand to realize how bad they actually are. I wasn’t nearly as into tea as you were when I started working there, so am glad for the intro to loose leaf. But ummm message please? I’m way too curious.
