Welcome to Tea!

If you are preparing tea, you will get a reminder e-mail a few days beforehand.


Tea preparers are strongly advised to use a departmental purchasing card; these can be borrowed from Rose or Julie. The tea budget is $45 for Thursday and $30 every other day; anything past this you have to cover yourself.


You're responsible for cleaning the lounge and kitchen after your tea. This includes rinsing out the coffee pots and the coffee/hot water containers. Here are some important tea clean-up reminders:
  1. All dishes, knives, utensils and other items used for tea must be cleaned. Not only must you wash these items, you must put them away after they dry — probably the next morning.
  2. The coffee/hot water containers must be properly cleaned — wash each container and then put clean water inside. Leave the lid of the container open so that it may air out; this prevents disagreeable odours.
  3. If there is a shortage of cups, straws, sugar or other supplies necessary to prepare tea, you can most likely find them in the first floor kitchen. If you can't find these items yourself, ask a staff member.

Tea Schedule

Tea's held Monday to Thursday at 3:30 and Friday at 4:15.
If you're trading times with somebody, please let me know and I'll update the schedule.
