Tea swap # 12

Launch gallery slideshow

Swap Coordinator:Taina (contact)
Swap categories: Food 
Number of people in swap:62
Last day to signup/drop:August 10, 2007
Date items must be sent by:August 20, 2007
Number of swap partners:3

*This swap is international and for swapping teabags. We did this first time in September 2006 and now it´s already time for signing up in August swap :)

*Everyone sends at least 6 different teabags (not teaboxes) to 3 different partners and receives the same amount of teabags. This shouldn´t be too expensive for people like me, who just can´t afford sending tea mugs abroad, but would like to try new tea flavours :)

*Try to find some LOCAL teas if possible, so the partners receive something they haven´t tried before!!

*Teabags are recommended but loose tea is also OK, if it´s packed well.

*I will ban people, who have ratings under 4.5, sorry! There has been some participants, who didn´t send their teas at all and this is so unfair for the others and I´m getting a bit tired of cleaning up the mess they make. Please DO NOT sign up if you are not going to send anything!! And remember that it´s NOT possible to cancel your participation after this swap has already started on 10th day.

*If you have any problems, feel free to contact me :)

*Anyway, happy swapping to everyone :)

*NOTE -> If you´re sending teabags to Australia, they should be in sealed teabags and the list of ingredients must be mentioned in the bag!

I was having my holidays and travelled around Finland for couple of weeks, but now I´m finally back home! Previous tea swap went so well, so of course I decided to organise a new one :)

Hugs, Taina

I am looking to possibly do a private tea swap on the side with someone who has access to Milford tea. I think this came from Germany in another swap. It is the strawberry & vanilla tea or Erdbeere & Vanille. I just had this tea and LOVE IT! I have many other nice teas I can swap in exchange. Please contact me if anyone who can get this tea wants to do this. Thanks!

There are some people without ratings in this swap and I want to remind you about my "newbie-rule" :)

People without ratings can also join my tea swap, but ONLY if they haven´t participated in more than 5 swaps. I´ll check this when this swap starts and remove newbies, who have joined in 6 or more swaps.

Hugs, Taina

I'm confused. Maybe I'm missing something, but is your criteria a rating of 4.5 AND at least 6 swaps? I don't see the 6 swaps in your criteria, but did notice it in a comment. I understand if that is your criteria, it is your swap, after all. I just would like some clarification. I won't join until I know if I meet the criteria. If not, then I will see you in a future swap, I think, because I love the idea. Thanks

Hi Amy :)

If you have ratings, they should be over 4.5 and if you don´t have any ratings (you´re a newbie), then you shouldn´t take part in more than 5 swaps if you want to join my swap. I hope this helped you!

Sunshine, Taina

Hii I'm Hana I am a newbie and this is my first swap! I first loved the idea of tea swap! I love tea, trying new kinds and tea tasting. I'll be on the hunt for some local and exotic teas near me!

Mrrranda 08/11/2007 #

My favorite teas are greens, lapsang souchong and sweet-flavored ones like vanilla and maple, but my only real request to partners is no licorice/anise teas - thanks!
