Cup of tea for you and me International 3

This is a tea swap that is fairly easy and first class postage to send.

Send two tea bags to your partner.

These should be pre wrapped by the manufacturer. You can send a little note with the bags if you wish, or a letter or just a few words that say the swap name and your ID.

You can look at your partners profile and see their preferences and try to make them the happiest tea drinkers that day, or send your choice by just putting your hand in your tea bin and grabbing two bags and sending those to your partner. Or you can look in your tea bin and send the flavors you like the most or like the least or you can have your mom choose the flavors or you can have the cat….

Well this is sender’s choice; however we all know hearts come from looking at the profile and seeing the favorites.

If you wish, you can make a statement in the comments section to save your partner a trip to your profile of what you like and dislike, but remember it is sender’s choice.

I know I rattle on and on, so to sum it up. Two tea bags wrapped by the manufacturer. At least write your ID and the swap name, if you wish to send even a letter or note card you can. And it is sender’s choice. I will make this a pretty swift swap, because you could even have it ready before the partners are assigned if you wish. One week from sign up to send by deadlines.

Since so little is required, of this swap, I will make this newbie friendly and rating semi- friendly. I will angel any that needs me to, if you rate the partner a one for not sending. Rating can be 4.7, yes this is low, but it may give some that are wanting to raise a rating a chance and like I mentioned, I will angel. (If the sender has that many ones and does not send, this may be the swap that gets them the boot. )

Hello, this is one of my first swap. If it's no precised on the profile of my partner, is infusions allowed ?

fawnscrafts 08/ 6/2013 #

You must send tea bags that have been protectively wrapped by the manufacturer.

If they infusions are teas, and pre-wrapped, they can be fine. Unless your partners says not to send those. If this is your first swap, my advice would be to stick to tea bags and perhaps start a infusion swap of your own.

If I am HIGHLY allergic to peppermint and it is senders choice..I use an EPI Pen if I just SMELL peppermint so a peppermint tea tea even in the bag would send me to the ER. Should I not join this swap as it is senders choice, or would they see my comment and I could message them after partners were chosen?

kgeslab 08/12/2013 #

Transplanted - just my advice - join and make sure your profile says allergic to mint. Then, if you get mint just throw it away or re-swap it. Usually people read the profile. I'm the same way with chamomile and it does sometimes come even though I clearly marked it on my profile. I just put it in another swap or give it to a friend.

My tea preferences: I really like green teas, especially any green Japanese or Chinese. I don't really care for "black" teas (e.g. oolong, lipton-style). Herbal teas are OK.

fawnscrafts 08/12/2013 #

As the host, I would hope all participants would read the comments.

However I cannot promise that.

@transplanted I would feel better if you do not join. Only for your health, not cause of you.

If you wish to start a swap similar, but with the note that the sender must abide of do not sends go for it.

I would much rather you start a copy of this swap with the protections in place, than you have an allergic reaction to any teas someone sends you.

i am new here,when i get to know that where i will send my teas?

rsilvers 08/13/2013 #

@henjomaani On or after the swap sign-up ends on Aug 23, the host will assign partners. Come back to this page then, and on the top right there will be an option to see who you'll be sending to.

edgetorn 08/13/2013 #

I would like teas popular in your country or US black or green tea or herbal tea. No Earl Grey, Rooibos please.

henjomaani 08/13/2013 #

thank you for teaching me how this works.. i feel like i started a new school :D

henjomaani 08/14/2013 #

i cant wait to be in that point when i can start my own swaps :) i have couple ideas for them.

Ancalime 08/15/2013 #

I like herbal tea, but I enjoy new eperience, so surprise me :)

fawnscrafts 08/15/2013 #

I am doing a happy dance. I signed in and this in number one on the swap list! Thank you for making it the number one swap for at least a few days!

I can say for a fact, this is the first time my swap number one

bluerose3 08/16/2013 #

I am open to most teas as I'm trying to expand my tastes (I do have a mini list on profile only because I haven't found any others that jump out at me). However, PLEASE NONE with raspberry, hazlenut, or pomegrante.

CajunLady 08/16/2013 #

hopefully no one on this swap gets stuck with a flaker as the hostess does not check for them. Also, good luck getting a rating from her as she is very slow to rate.

Mandileigh 08/18/2013 #

I like mint teas, chai, fruit ...really I'm not picky :)

OGIMAQTpie 08/18/2013 #

I like all teas except: NO plain black tea or lemon tea. NO kiwi fruit or pineapple as I'm highly allergic to them

fawnscrafts 08/18/2013 #

@casjunLady is 100% wrong, I closely look at the profiles and bad swappers on my swaps. And I will ban with no regrets.

However she is 100% correct, I am a very slow rater. I do rate. My profile states this, I do not hide that I am a slow rater.

I am proud she can attack me, it leaves someone else alone from her wretchedness.

CajunLady 08/18/2013 #

Glad you labeled me as one of your queens.

fawnscrafts 08/23/2013 #

You would never be my queen, I labeled 'queen, because of the way you and your errr, other queens try like to run this site. I use the nice word, not wanting to use the one that most swappers you have tried to belittle and put down and run off, call you and the rest of the queens.... . Stitch is a rhyming word, so 'queen', it is not a pat on your back.
