About Me

When I was three I climbed over a balcony railing, fell three stories onto a hedge, and walked away unscathed.

Tea Swap

Want to do a tea swap? PM with your picks from What I'm Drinking. What I’d love in return are flowering teas, loose teas or tea bags with whole leaves. I dislike chai and rooibos/red bush.

Wish List

Ever-growing, ever-changing wish list of things that I'd be thankful to receive in swaps are:

English toffee
Gummy candies
Barbecue dry rub seasoning
Mail art
Hand-drawn postcards
Gocco prints
Prints made using old school printmaking techniques
Music (please see wish list below)
Free/ad cards
Letterpress stationery
Rubber stamps
1-inch button pin/badge
Chess pieces
Blind box toys
Urban vinyl figure/toy
Coin pouches
Tote bags
Everything and anything tea related

I am easy-going and open-minded but I dislike generic mass-produced things made by companies who treat their employees like shit. It’s hard but I do my best to avoid them.
