♥ A cup of tea each day keeps the sorrow away ♥

I love all the tea swaps going on here but I was missing something so here it is:

This is the change to decide what teas you will get! After signing up please list at least 10 different teas (wrapped! teabags) you can offer to your partner. Please don't just write f.e. I can offer "Morning Glow" because nobody will know what the ingredients are. Better write "Morning Glow: Strawberry with Raspberry" add at least one or two of the main ingredients. Thank you!

After partners are assigned you will take a look at the comments, see what your partner offers and pick 7 teas (= 7 teabags) you'd love to receive. Send your partner an eMail or write a comment below @yourpartner and tell him/her what teas you picked and your partner will send them to you. We'll give this swap a try with one partner this first time.

★ DO NOT list teas you'd like to receive but only teas you can offer! ★

  • After signing up, list at least 10 different teas in the comment section below
  • Please don't offer common teas everyone has at home anyway (like camomile, peppermint, etc.)
  • After partners are assigned come back to this page and pick 7 (SEVEN) teas you'd love to receive
  • Send your partner an eMail or write a comment below @yourpartner and tell what teas you picked.
  • Please don't let too much time lapse away before you inform your partner, keep in mind that he/she has to send this swap in time!
  • for wrapped teabags (7 teabags to send) only!


  • international
  • 1 partner
  • open for Newbies with a filled out profile (we all have to start somewhere and most of the time it happend I got flaked by an oldie with perfect ratings)
  • no minimum rating but despite that I will check all profiles and reserve the right to ban if someone looks fishy
  • I'm very sorry about it, but due to the customs regulations no swappers from Australia

Do you think you'll be hosting this swap again soon? I don't think I can participate in this one because I don't have any unique teas at the moment but I'd love to be in one of these in the future. :c

Republic of Tea Cranberry Blood Orange

I'll make sure to package these in clean, individual tiny ziploc baggies and label them. Anyway, this is totally up to my partner I just thought I'll throw it out here. please feel free to pm if you'd like some of these extra teas. I'll be happy to share them with you. Thanks.

Oh, this is embarrassing. Maybe I haven't had enough tea this morning :) Does the partner I've been assigned look at my teas or do I look at hers?

monchichigurl79 02/21/2011 #

We get our partners in our message box right? I haven't received mine but it says they have been assigned. Help?

Obstminkerl 02/22/2011 #


YOU look at the one's you receive from and the one you send to looks at yours.

@monchichigurl79 Next to the swap is a box with a link "rate your partner and coordinator" there you can see who the one is you can request the teas from!

monchichigurl79 02/22/2011 #
