Cup of tea for you and me USA 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. )

Woohoo 2 top tens swaps!

Thank you for signing up partners.

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.

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.

MissAppleseed 08/18/2013 #

I'm new and I see that we've been assigned partners, but how do I see who mine is? Oh,and what I'd number should I include in the package with my username, it was referred to in the f.a.q. Thanks!

MissAppleseed 08/18/2013 #

Oh! Hold the phone! I found my partner.

I posted this in the other swap comments.

@cajunlady is 100% wrong about flakers in my swaps. Out of all I Hosted, I have to make up for three flakers. I will ban swappers I do not fell comfortable with in a heartbeat and not regret it.

However she is 100% correct about me being slow on rating. I have never denied I am a slow rater. My profile clearly states I am a slow rater.

And like I mentioned in the other comment section of my other swaps, thank goodness she is attacking me, she is leaving another victim alone from her unkindness.

@fawnscrafts Cajunlady can be very rude. She banned me from one of her swaps because she was claiming that I wasn't 18 when she clearly didn't look at my profile and see my age, she also said non-rated newbies were allowed in her swap, but that was a lie too.

I love Chai Spicy Teas and Organtic Chai Teas. Loose tea is fine too (chai).

CajunLady 08/18/2013 #

I'm sorry teacup kitten, but banning you from my swap was not rude. And if you think it is, then you are definitely in for a rude awakening from this site.

TeaCupKitteh 08/18/2013 #

@Cajunlady It was the way you did it. You accused me of faking my age, and you lied about who was welcome in your swap. I'm not sorry for thinking you are rude, because I'm just being truthful.

CajunLady 08/18/2013 #

This disclaimer is in my swap: "Newbies and unrated swappers are welcome, but I reserve the right to ban swappers that appear questionable." And to me you were a questionable swapper at the time. There were several reasons I saw this 1 you hadn't joined any other swaps. 2 you didn't have a full profile at the time. 3 your information vs what I found elsewhere didn't match up. 4. Your information was also that of someone else's, so you could have been a double profiler. But the fact that at the time you didn't have a full profile nor were you signed up for any other swaps played a huge role in me banning you. Oh and by the way, it's my swap so I can ban who ever I want to.

TeaCupKitteh 08/19/2013 #

1) I was in 2 other swaps at the same time I joined yours. 2) I had a full profile the exact day I joined. 3) What?? 4) I have the same address as my mother, Rachel herself helped me sign up. So I'm not some double profile, thank you. I think you have me mixed up with someone else. Thanks for an unfair swapping experience anyways, I'm done arguing over this.

Daneen 08/19/2013 #

Whoever has me for partner, my address didn't stick when I changed it. If you sent to Empire Ave in Spokane, I probably won't get it. I haven't lived there in 5 years. I just noticed that it didn't reflect my correct address. :(

danichris84 08/19/2013 #

I'm very excited for this ! It's my first swap ! I like all flavors except licorice or cinnamon

fawnscrafts 08/23/2013 #

@teacupkitteh since Rachel says you are part of swap bot, and you met the requirements, I have no problem.

In fact, I ignore anyone @cajunlady would recommend or demean. I can read and have read profiles of the swappers in my swaps.

If some of the ones that think they can run the site better than Rachel would just start their own site and leave Rachel and the rest of us swappers alone, it would be so refreshing and peaceful, for the rest of us.

@daneen perhaps you may need to go through an address change and re-post the same address on your profile info.

I haven't rec'd mine yet :(
