Send your partner 12 sealed, fresh teabags in assorted flavors. (Please, no more than two of each kind.)

ALSO, send your partner one hand-made tea-themed item (eg; an atc, a matchbox, jewelry, etc.) and at least one store-bought tea-themed item (eg; a few note-cards, some fabric, a teacup, stickers, etc.)

Please check your partners' profiles to see what types of things they like... or ask them. :)

This swap is open to anyone worldwide with a rating of at least 4.8 and no recent no-sends.

Drink up! :)

I do reserve the right to ban anyone that I think is joining just to flake or cause trouble!

Not a lot of the teabags in my area are sealed =(

On my watchlist! :)

I have the same problem, teabags here come in paper wrapping :'(

BeautifulMess & ViolaOdorata ~

That is a shame. :(

I know many people have the same problem, but unfortunately, many people also will not accept anything that isn't sealed. Perhaps you could set up a private swap with each other, if neither of you mind teas that aren't sealed? (Just trying to offer up a solution!) :)

hydro75 ~ Hope you'll decide to join! :)

I'm doing many teaswaps and we all always send our teas in a paper wrapping and it always goes right. And if there is a tea without a wrapper then swappers seal it y themself. If paper wrappers were also allowed I really would love to join. It is a very nice swap idea.... :-((

I wrap everything I send in plastic before sending so it's clean and fresh to receive. I've done teas waps before and it never was a problem.
I really hope you change your mind about the wrapping so we can join this nice swap.

you cannot mail tea to sdome countries!check with post!

rachwms 07/ 4/2009 #

what do you mean by sealed anyway?

If this will help some USA swappers, I get my individually wrapped single serving size tea bags in many of the "bulk" foods sections of grocery stores. Also check gift and specialty stores. Hope that helps!

I think the hostess just wrapped tea not any loose tea.

I think the hostess wants just wrapped tea not any loose tea.

Can I ask: with sealed teabags you mean this: http://collection.teabags.cz/detail.php?produkt_id=1848

Reesie271 07/12/2009 #

I consider that sealed. Its wrapped individually and glued shut. Thats different from just grabbing a teabag out of your box at home and tossing it in an envie. I figure if thats how the stores sell it, thats how I can send it.

Reesie271 07/13/2009 #

oh and not to sound cranky or anything, just want this swap to go well because I love tea swaps. If your country doesn't allow us to send you tea I would suggest either letting us know so we could send something else or not signing up. (sorry Australia!) I personally would be ok with just sending tea related items rather than actual tea to those countries so they could still participate.

Im technically a newbie here but have done LOTS of mail swaps over the years from yahoo groups

SwedishMum 07/19/2009 #

I am sorry, I joined the group but I a newbie. That is I have no rating at all... I loved the idea since I drink cans of tea every day, but feel free to throw me out if it isn't ok for me to join.

Hello, everyone... sorry for the delay in getting back to you all... the reason I say sealed bags is because a lot of people will not drink anything sent loosed or withour wrappers... mostly for sanitary purposes. I really think it is best to leave it as a swap for individually wraped/sealed bags,
