I’ve been pretty busy the past few weeks, worrying and working, preparing to leave for my summer job; I will be moving up north to a small mining town in order to work for one of the many metallurgical coal mines in the area. I’m not going to say much more on where. Northern Canada, very exciting. Everyone’s excited. I’m excited.

Sadly this little town doesn’t have any tea shops (to be expected), and thus one of the most difficult decisions I will have to make is what tea I would like to bring with me. This decision is only rivaled by the choice of what books I will bring with me. I have a large collection of unread books, and I would like to bring them all, as well as a few of my geology textbooks (and a few other interesting ones; Cosmos, The Universe in a Nutshell, A Brief History of Time–I’ve never gotten around to reading these because class has always been in the way). It all comes down to mass, and how much I can cram into a carry-on.

So in short, I may be pretty busy, and although I am not a huge poster as it is, I may be posting even less. Not so much because I will be surrounded by less tea (as I don’t review individual teas anyhow), but simply because I don’t know quite how busy I will be. This is to be a full-time job. I would just like to warn at the possibility that the next few posts may be nothing but photos of my tea thermos used as scale against various rock outcrops. Who knows.
