Choose 7 tea bags. Each tea bag must be wrapped (no loose leaf) and all 7 must be different (no doubles).

Place each tea bag in it's own envelope or wrap it in some paper so your partner can't see what kind of tea it is.

Label each of the 7 with a different day of the week, monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday, sunday.

Now when you receive your package you have a different tea to try each day of the week. On Monday morning you can open the one labelled monday.

This swap is senders choice. The point is to have the opportunity to try different types of tea.

Great swap! I prefer black teas, please no plain green or fruity herbals. Thanks!

I'm willing to try new teas, but not everything in a "tea bag" is actually tea! Watch out for pure herbals, tisanes, mate, and rooibos, none of which are acutally teas. When in doubt, check the ingredients!

Okay this is my swap so I'm going to say as long as it's a wrapped tea bag sold in the tea section you can send it, even if it's labelled rooibos. It's a senders choice swap so I'm not going to limit peoples choices. I want to be lots of choice so more surprises.

I'll leave these comments up so the sending partners can 'choose' if they can fullfill their receiving partners requests but if you can not (you do not need to go purchase 7 new packages so you can send a tea bag from each) they still have to rate you a 5 (if you send unwrapped tea they can rate 3) it is their choose if they rate you a heart though so keep that in mind.

No worries! You're right! It's your swap, so you're the boss! :-) Thanks for the clarification!

If you have allergies or sensitives be sure to clarify them to your partner! Preferences too should be taken into account.

Senders choice means you can not down rate your partner if their taste does not match your taste, that is contrary to a senders choice swap. If you receive 7 different teas, wrapped and labelled monday to sunday, it has followed swap rules and is to be given a 5 rating regardless if you like the tea or not. Hearts on the other hand are completely up to you.

It is advisable that if you are particular about what you do and don't receive, it may be best to avoid senders choice swaps.

For future version of this swap (or any senders choice swap) I state that any comment stating likes and dislikes shall be delete because it puts unfair pressure on the sending partner and it goes against the point of it being a senders choice swap.

You may however host your own more specific version of this swap, "Black tea of the week" "Green tea of the week" etc just make sure to credit me in the swap description and let them know I'm hosting a "any kind" version of the swap as well.
