Tea from your country
Swap Coordinator:FrancescaP (contact)
Swap categories: Food 
Number of people in swap:34
Type:Type 2: Flat mail
Last day to signup/drop:January 26, 2013
Date items must be sent by:February 8, 2013
Number of swap partners:2

For this swap, you'll send your partners 5 different and individually wrapped teabags. Two partners, so 10 tea bags in total.

The twist is, only brands from your country are allowed! So, if you're from the U.S.A., you can send Republic of Tea, Bigelow or any American brand; if you're from Finland, you can only send Finnish teas and so on...

I think it's a nice opportunity to try new and typical teas!

Sender's choice, but please check your partner's profile for allergies and dislikes.

No unexplained 1 or 3 ratings in the last 6 months. Newbies allowed but you need to have a well filled out profile, I'll check profiles before assigning partners and remove anyone who looks suspicious and/or hasn't respected the deadlines in my previous swaps. I'll angel if needed.

Happy swapping!

I'm sending to a person in my own country...any ideas?

Same for me. I contacted my partner and asked if she'd rather have something from my collection from abroad. Maybe you could do the same with yours?

Thanks, that's what I did too. I'm sending her some other teas/goodies ;-)

I don't know what happened, but my partners are both from the same country. Coincidence?

Amberly 01/28/2013 #

One of mine is from the same state as me!

Both my partners are from my own country!

Sorry about that, guys, it was not a 1 person 1 country swap, and partners are randomly assigned by swap-bot, so I couldn't avoid this potential issue. If you have 2 partners from the same country (i.e. you're from Norway and both partners are from the USA) then there should be no problem. If one of your partners (or both) is from your country (so, you're from Norway and your partner is from Norway), please feel free to contact them and arrange things as you please. Any issues, just PM me and I can send you some Italian teas as a bonus, so you'll surely receive something from a different country :-)

@FrancescaP My comment wasn't criticism meant for you, because you can't help what swap-bot does when assigning partners. I solved it by sending both my partners 5 bags of tea from our country and 5 bags of tea from abroad. I hope they like that solution.

@Cesaria thanks for your comment, I know you didn't mean to criticise :-) And I'm glad you found a great solution with your partners. Still, if someone wants some tea from Italy, just PM me :-)

It was my first swap. And it turn out a bit funny. I did send teabags to Chile and Finland. I received both packages from the Netherlands, my own country... A bit dissapointing at first. But when the post arrived, it was clear: It's about the package, not the teabags alone. Both packages made me smile! One so creative and the other with the most iteresting tea-taste I could imagine. It was a positive experience, hope there will be more of those swaps!

Francesca, will you swap with me? I Love to try some Italian tea. I will send you some Dutch tea too. It's not you who gave me two Dutch partners :-)
