After organizing my first simple Candy swap, that went way better than expected, i decided to stick to simple swaps that most of us would want to join, that are simple to follow, understand and send.

So, for this swap, all we need to do is fill up an envelope with 6 different types of tea (teabags only!) that we would like for someone else to try. As simple as that!! The more unique flavor, the better! The tea selection is a 100% senders choice, but for everything else, please consult your partner!

Some people prefer to receive tea that is in its separate paper packages, and some dont care about it, so please resolve those preferences with your partner before you send your swap out.

This swap will be really quick on the sending date, because you can send the tea you already have in your household (no need for extra shopping), and therefore your envelope is ready within a couple of minutes.

Newbies are welcome in this swap, but please do email me when you apply and assure me of your honest intentions in this swap. I will personally check out all the people who apply and see if they are honest about swapping, and not flaking.

Have fun swapping!!

Do the teas have to be packaged or are loose teabags okay? (as long as they are packaged well enough not to explode in transit!)

charmpam 02/13/2011 #

well, if the teabags do not have their own bags, you should maybe put them in the zip lock bags, so that they do not touch the paper of the envelope.. But preferably, try and send tea that is alredy in its own little package.

kacka 02/13/2011 #

i really prefer the tea to be in original package, it doesnt have to be any special kind, but the one in zip lock bag has no use with me.

charmpam 02/13/2011 #

@kacka when the partners are assigned, simply point that out to your partner and there shouldnt be any problem about it.. The flavours of the tea are 100% senders choice, but the packaging or no packaging should be resolved with partners personally..

I prefer sealed teabags in their own paper envelope if at all possible. I prefer original packaging please. No loose tea or unsealed teabags for me. Thanks.

Dear charmpam, I want to attend your tea swap. Participate for the first time and I'm here to write email, but I can not open a contact to you. I hope I can attend. Thanks KatieCigi

This is my first swap and I am so excited! I LOVE tea! I am not sure how to send you an email, but my intentions are 100% honorable. I'll even volunteer to be an angel for this swap if needed. =]

I am okay with loose tea. I just can't stand chai. I am up for everything else, though!

I'm not sure how to email you either, but I'd love to participate in this swap! I'm new, but I assure you, my intentions are honorable!

As for everyone having trouble messaging me.. You just click on my username and my profile will open. You can send me a message by clicking onto the "Send message" box, next to my name. Either that, or right here in this swap, next to my username, there is a link that says (contact). If you click on it, it will take you straight to the message form.

This will be my first swap and i love tea

ninjapirate 02/16/2011 #

This will be my first swap, too. I'm unreasonably excited about this! It sounds like tons of fun; who doesn't like getting a cute little package in the mail from an interesting person? So, now what do I do?

thunderstruck 02/16/2011 #

Jester777 02/18/2011 #

I love all kinds of tea and enjoy both bagged and loose (lots more variety in here, exotic flavors!) and love dessert type teas. Please don't send plain green tea of herbal tea. I like to add milk to mine, and herbal make it curdle! Thankies! :D

charmpam 02/18/2011 #

@lchigoshorthcake - you should really contact your partner about that.. with both message and email.. ( coz you get both of those options, when you are assigned).. Because not everybody looks under this swap to read comments.

Caliliesforever 02/18/2011 #

This is my first swap and I am super excited! I love trying different teas and I am hoping that this will be a brand new experiance and expose me to more exotic and fun flavors!!!

Sillyna511 02/18/2011 #

At first I was hesitant to do an international swap, but tea bags are so light, that it will be very cheap postage. Yay!

Babytreese 02/19/2011 #

When will we get our swap partners?

charmpam 02/19/2011 #

Partners are assigned!

daarhon 02/19/2011 #

Please do not send unsealed teabags to me.

Caliliesforever 02/19/2011 #

I know in some swaps you send to one person and someone different sends to you. Is that how this one is?
