High tea (or afternoon tea if you're British), always conjures up images of girlfriends sipping tea in pretty porcelain floral tea cups, surrounded by an assortment of sweet & savoury pastries, and indulging in girly gossip ;)

My budget take on high tea sessions started in an attempt to relax & unwind after a crazy work week.. Now a Saturday ritual that I eagerly look forward to, I've found immense joy in sipping on a hot beverage (most likely a recently discovered variety), munching on teeny tiny pastries (I love feeling like a giant), and catching up on the week's celebrity gossip on E! or (if the sun's out) lazing in the sun with a good book.. :)


  • Help your partner create their own home-made high tea by sending them 2 beverages and 1 finger-food item
  • Suggestions for the beverage include-- tea bags/sachets, coffee beans/sachets/cups, hot chocolate sachets, etc.. Please comment below if you have a preference for hot or cold beverage, and beverage type (e.g. I would prefer hot beverages and no fruity teas pls)
  • Suggestions for the food item include-- scones, jams & jellies, biscuits, nut butters, honey, shortbread, cookies, macarons, tarts, cupcake mix, etc..

* The spending limit is US$5 or £4 or €4 (before shipping)
* For health & customs reason, please only send commercially sealed and non-expired food items
* You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are!
* Ziplock baggies are your best friend! Don't forget that seals on jars can pop in flight, & powders/crumbs have a way of escaping their sachets.
* This is a profile-based swap, so please check your partner's profiles for their likes/dislikes, and for any other information you might need like allergies or diet restrictions


* Everyone must have over a 4.96 rating to participate
* No unexplained or unresolved 1s or 3s
* Please have a well filled profile, and include any diet restrictions &/or allergies :)
* I will be checking all profiles before assigning partners, and reserve the right to block anyone that doesn't meet the swap requirements and/or looks suspicious
* If you get delayed sending out the swap, please be responsible and communicate with your partner & me, and inform us ahead of time

I will willingly accept any beverage (hot/cold) as long as they don't contain artificial sweeteners/ sugar substitutes (stevia is fine).. :)

great swap im in is it 2 sachets of either hot or cold drinks?

sugaraddict 05/31/2013 #

@reauk > yup! 2 sachets of either hot/cold depending on your partner's preference.. and if they're ok with either, you could even mix it up n send 1 hot + 1 cold :D

I'm ssoooooo disappointed that I have to bow out of this swap I was so looking forward to it! What a cute idea for a theme but I just wont be able to get the things and put them together how I want with my work schedule next week (I always send profile specific).

If anyone would want to do a private swap with this theme in July or August PM me :)

@littlebluestar > aww.. not to worries though, I'll definitely be organising more swaps like this in the coming months :)
