*Inspired from previous similar swap with the permission of the original creator @Nekozet

Too busy to swap? Too frazzled to worry about choosing just the right things for your partners? Worried you've already sent your most special tea to most of us, and trying hard not to repeat? Open to trying something new? Then this super easy swap is for you!

Go right NOW to your tea stash, and:

  1. pull out 4 teas (individually wrapped);
  2. put 2 different flavored teabags in 2 envelopes;
  3. include a note stating your name and the swap name and number (since it’s a series);
  4. seal the envie... Then wait.

When partners are assigned, address the envelopes and mail them. That's it. Nothing more. No extras required. No profile surfing for preferences. Since postage has dramatically increased in Canada, it now costs me over a ridiculous 4$ to send 2 teabags international... booo. I'm sorry for my international friends, but this swap now has to be Canada & US only.

If you have allergies, consider if you are willing to possibly receive teas you can't drink, before signing up. There is no telling what you might receive! You can keep them to re-gift or future swaps. If you feel the need to "cushion" your teas you may use a notecard or sheet of paper to sandwich your teas. Send off your teabags to their anonymous homes and don’t forget to include the swap name and you Swap-Bot ID to be rated.

« Sign up » and « send by » dates are really close since the envies should already be prepared in advance to be mailed out. If you’re not sure you will be able to send on time, DON’T JOIN !!! Since it’s not profile related, it can be prepared in advance, so there is no reason for being late sending.

Now the fun part…


Requirements:
• You must have a rating of 4.98+ with no recent no sends;
• No unexplained or recent 1's or 3's or you will be banned (just PM me to discuss as I will not chase anyone before banning);
• You must have at least 10 type 2 (or higher) completed and rated swaps;
• NO newbies (sorry I was burnt to often and there is lately too many swap lifters).

Ratings:
• Please rate your partner as soon as envelope is received;
• 5s should be given out based on whether the package meets the swap requirements, NOT whether you like it or not.


I will check profiles before assigning partners and I will ban anyone who seems fishy or that I’m uncomfortable with (even late senders in my previous swaps). I might sound harsh but I’m trying to avoid unpleasant experience for good swappers. If any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to PM me (as communication is the key).

This swap is meant to be fun, so PLEASE no flakers. Should there be any, I will Angel (or find an angel) if necessary.

Anyone unhappy with the swap description or swap requirements is more than welcome to start his or her own similar swap.
