The Tea Council of the USA, Inc. is doing its share to help struggling college grads navigate the brutal job market. Its “Sip of Success” contest offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a recent grad to prepare for a great career and experience a unique and thrilling adventure on tea plantations in India, Sri Lanka, Kenya and the USA. College grads can create a two-minute video showing their passion for tea and knowledge of its many health benefits, for a chance to win this exciting prize.
“We’re launching this contest during National Iced Tea Month to continue educating the public, including young people, on the emerging science supporting the health-related benefits of drinking tea, as well as its delicious taste,” explains Joe Simrany, President of the Tea Council of the USA. “In the process, if we can help a worthy young professional enhance their resume and get a jumpstart on an exciting and fulfilling career, all the better.”
During the internship the winner will learn about all aspects of tea cultivation, processing and appreciation (cupping). He or she will live in Tea Estate Bungalows, which are actually beautiful homes built for the original British managers. To top off the experience, in early January, 2011, the winner will participate in the US portion of the Dream Job internship at SalonTea, under the tutelage of nationally known tea entrepreneur Tracy Stern.
Tracy Stern SalonTea is a lifestyle brand that fuses fashion, style, art and tea, with several locations, including New York City, Dubai and Paris. Stern is the national spokesperson for the Tea Council of USA “Sip of Success” contest.
