Calling all tea lovers from around the World!

For this swap, send each of your three partners two wrapped teabags from your country. May be one flavor or two different flavors.

Include a little note to your partner for them to read while enjoying their tea.

I encourage reading profiles for tea preferences, but it is not required. SENDERS CHOICE, so please no downrating based on taste.

I will try to host this swap regularly. I love trying new things!

PARTICIPATION: The minimum rating is 4.8 to participate in this swap. I will ban anyone with unexplained recent 1's or 3's, and newbies without well-filled profiles.

I will not tolerate flakers and late senders. Late senders in my swaps are banned from the next series swap of any of my swaps unless they contact me and their partner(s) and I deem the reason to be excusable. I will angel flakers if necessary. I will ban questionable swappers at my own discretion the day of assigning partners.

The best Irish teas are not factory wrapped but come in individual pyramid bags.. would love to share them but I'm afraid others don't like this.

Hi Mara, you could always wrap them in a bit of plastic, or put them in a small envelope like this: www.alenkasprintables.com/teabags.shtml Hope this helps x. Aankee

I love some of the pyramid teas, unfortunately they are not alloewed in most tea swaps ans you mentioned, because they are not individually wrapped. I bought some when they first came out and did not like the flavor too much, so for years I avoided them, the other day, I got a box and they are delicious, that flavor that is.

@Aankee I hope the host will OK the wrapping idea from that site. I have found some loose teas are some of the best, like the strawberry tea I got the other day from the tea store.

Host can we make our own tea envelopes and use those for either loose tea or the pyramid bags? I clicked on the site and could not find one liked then googlesd tea envelopes templates?

Can we send more then two types of teas?

As long as it's good tea I dont care how it's wrapped (piramids sound really nice!), so I'm joining ;-)

As long as you check with your partner, individually-wrapped teas are not necessarily required for this swap. I myself do not have a preference as long as it is labeled so I know what I'm drinking. :) However, I want you to check with your partners before assuming. Not everyone has a reusable steeper for loose teas, and some people have allergies and will require individual packages so they won't get into trouble there, so make sure you have an alternative in mind in case your partner is one of these people!

@Rapunzel you can send as many types of tea as you would like.

Because of the popularity of this swap, I plan to start hosting this as a regular series. :) :)

Also, just because of the large number of swappers in this round, I will be going through profiles tomorrow and at the very latest, you will have your partner by 4/24...just in case going through profiles takes me longer than expected. <3

I prefer pre-wrapped teas. I just feel more comfortable exchanging sealed food products.

jessi1221 04/23/2013 #

I have my swap already to be sent out all I need is an address.

Rapunzel 04/23/2013 #

This is my first swap and I am very excited, and to keep in mind I do have a loose tea steaper and I am up to try anything and have no alergies :)
