Gaiwan at work.

To round out our rather spontaneous series about how we enjoy tea at work, I’m casting my vote for the porcelain gaiwan. gaiwanatwork.jpg I decant the tea into a small stoneware cup to drink, and use the leaves in the gaiwan multiple times.

I usually have a tea towel in my desk for quick cleanup of drips and spills, but it’s currently at home in the laundry basket.

I’m still a sucker for a good lavender Earl Grey, so I also keep an English-style cup and saucer at my desk for black tea days. My full-size teapot has an insulated hood to keep tea warm until lunchtime. englishatwork.jpg It has a tall mesh basket included, so I don’t have to fuss with strainers and teaballs, and it gives the leaves room to expand.

For hot water, I have a white plastic Rival water kettle that sells for around $15. It has a range of temperature from barely simmering to a rolling boil. A few minutes with a thermometer would allow you to mark the settings that give you the temperatures you use most.

What do you use?

Andrea Bang

Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.

THE SECRET SALCE BEHIND FUND SELECTION

Two Types of Major College scholarships

Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).

The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
