About Me

Hiya! My name's Itti, I'm dipping my toes in the Swapbot waters again after a long absence (7 years it would seem!)

I'm from the UK, I live in Edinburgh. My hobbies include drawing, painting, photography, bouldering, puzzles, board games, walking by the river and making lists. My boyfriend is Portuguese and lives with me most of the time, but still partly lives in Portugal. I also keep two leopard geckos.

🦎 Please check out my reptile/amphibian group on Swap-bot if that's something you're interested in too :) 🦎

Other things I like

A short list to give you inspiration

  • I like bright colours (think bright rainbow or deep jewel tones). I also like blacks and greys. I am not keen on pastels or washed out colours. I really don't like pink.
  • I keep leopard geckos and I like seeing things with any kind of gecko on
  • I like trees, plants and nature. I like things made of wood and things with leaves on.
  • Anything 'zen' or 'soothing' or 'hygge'. I need more calm in my life :)


The idea of getting back into tea swaps is partly what made me come back to Swapbot, so here's a bit about my tastes:

  • I like black tea and white tea best. Black tea flavoured with a fruit is one of my favourite things - Bigelow and Twinings both do some great options.
  • I also just discovered the Dilmah exceptional range through swapping. The "rose with French vanilla" is lovely, would love some more of that if you've got any to hand!
  • I don't mind green and fruit teas as well but I don't drink them so often so I have a bit of a backlog, so that's why I'd prefer white or black tea.
  • If you do send me fruit tea, I like "orange/yellow" flavours (orange, mango, peach, lemon) more than "red/purple" ones. I don't like raspberry or cranberry much in fruit tea ("black tea with raspberry" is nice though!), but I do like strawberry. There are lots of others that I like too though and I would love to try new ones so a bunch of new flavours to try is very welcome! Oh yes, and if it's a bigger swap I don't mind getting a couple of the same flavour - then I can try one and keep one for later!
  • The only black tea I can think of that I don't like is Pu-er tea as it has a very strong smoky flavour. Lapsang souchong as well for the same reason.
  • No cinnamon, cherry, banana, fennel, ginger or liquorice please.


I like most things really so if there's something you personally think is really awesome or would love to get yourself, feel free to surprise me!

However, there are just a few things I can think of that I wouldn't like to get:

  • I am not Christian so please don't send me anything religious. Secular Christmas cards are fine! Just not religious ones.
  • I don't like coffee; cherry and licorice flavours make me feel ill.
  • Please don't send me postcards as a profile surprise unless the postcards specifically fit my profile. Especially don't send me blank tourist postcards from somewhere I don't live - I would never use them.

Swapping stuff!


I have angeled...

Comment: Thank you so much for these beautiful ATCs. I loved your take on the theme so different but it worked so well. Thank you for agreeing to and hosting this swap. ☺️

Hi, I haven't received the tea advent calendar swaps from you yet. There's been a long strike in finnish postal service, so no letters have been delivered in the last few weeks. The strike finally ended last Tuesday, so I'm hoping to receive your letter in the near future. I will rate as soon as I get it :)

Reptiles with fruit on their heads!

after searching for a couple hours, I could not find a photo that would copy to here, so here's some Lizards eating food. hope it'll still work

Hi there! Hope you are fairing well! I am doing a clean out of Tea is Love group and when you want to get back into swapping please PM me for an invite back to our group!

Hi Itti, you've been removed from FOPS due to your lengthy absence from SB. If you become active here again and want to rejoin the group, just send me a PM. Hope all is well with you. :)
