About Me

My name is Sanna, I was born in 1980 and I live in Finland. My hobbies are pen palling, reading books, movies, Sex and the City, watching vlogs, walking, gymnastic, listening to music, relaxing, drinking tea and coffee with my friends, thinking everything possible and impossible ;) and so on.

I took a long break from swapping and now I'm looking for new pen pals around the world and I'd like to swap some tea in private swaps. Telling the truth I can't afford big swaps and I would be interested in swaps where we both send about 20 teabags. In private swaps often are sent lots of extra but as I said, I can't afford lots of extras and I don't expect lots of extras from you either :) Please read my profile and send me tea that I like and can drink. Please send private message if you would like to be my pen pal or/and swap some tea :)

If you don’t receive anything, or I have accidentally sent you a swap worth of rating 3, please send me private message before giving a rating. I will resend then. But please notice that it may take several weeks the package to arrive, especially to USA.

I think swapping is about making someone happy, sending something that makes one's day. I appreciate it when my profile is read. I always read my partner's profile, even when it's a sender's choice swap.

Tea

Tea is my way to relax and make tea trips :)

I can send you for example Twinings, Lipton and Nordqvist (also the Moomin tea) If possible, please don't send me those brands.

My Favorite Tea

  • plain and flavored green tea

  • plain and flavored white tea

  • fruit and berry flavors

  • fruit and berry infusions

  • I'd love to receive chocolate, marzipan, fudge, caramel, vanilla, coconut, almond, nut and cream flavored tea - I love them but don't receive them often and can't find them where I live.

  • I love brands Stash and Bigelow. I can't buy them here.

  • Numi's Chocolate Pu-Erh and other Numis

  • Pu-erh

  • lemon

  • chamomile

  • Bigelow's black tea with vanilla and caramel. I love it even tho I don't often drink black tea.

  • factory sealed teabags only. Please tell me the ingredients of the teabag if they aren't mentioned in English or in Finnish. I don't like receiving tea that I have no idea what it contains.

  • loose tea only if the package is factory sealed. Only green or white tea.Please give me all possible information (brand, name, ingredients, expire date, steeping instructions)

Dislikes:

  • Rosehip (allergy)

  • Mint/peppermint/spearmint (allergy)

  • Rooibos

  • Lipton brand

  • Pickwick brand

  • Yogi brand

  • alcohol flavor

  • Lord Nelson brand

A wishlist

  • a letter from you

  • rubber stamps (themes like snail mail, music, birds, books, flowers etc.). Used are fine.

  • postcards in these themes: tea, coffee, rain forests, birds, chocolate, retro, snail mail etc.

  • retro, vintage

  • nuts

  • dark chocolate, raw chocolate

  • salty/savory/spiced snacks

  • marzipan

  • good quality ink pens (I especially love blue ink but any color is fine)

  • letter pads, letter sets, random sheets

I don't like to receive

  • Cat and dog themed stuff . I don't like cute puppy/kitten stuff

  • Diddl

  • Cigarette smoke

  • dirty stuff

  • Real leather

  • make-up

  • I hate colors peach and salmon and neon colors

  • Anything religious

  • anything seasonal

  • decorating items

  • ornaments, in other words decorative items (they only gather dust and I have no space for them and I have enough things)

  • palm tree theme

  • baby theme

  • key chains

  • souvenir stuff

Comment: A NOTE TO SWAP HOSTS CHECKING PEOPLE'S RATINGS: This 3 is given in mutual understanding with the swapper in question. Due to her private reasons she could not fulfill this swap she organised until it was a month late. She asked me to rate her a 3 to remind her not to engage herself in demanding swaps unless she can be certain she can follow through. For the contents of the swap received she would deserve a 5 and a heart :)
Response: Kiitos, thank you, Saija! I'm happy you liked everything and thank you for your wonderful words <3 I'll be back (in private messages)! :D

Comment: Hei, kiitos kirjeestä ja helmistä! Helmet ovat kivan värisiä, noista voisi tehdä vaikka jotain kesäkoruja tai hiuspompuloita. Kortti on oikein hauska, liekö kissan omat syntymäpäivät :D Terveisiä kissoillesi, toivottavasti heillä pysyy vointi hyvänä!

Comment: Thank you SO much, it's so nice to hear from you, I've been missing our swaps! Here lots of things have happened, and not good at all, but I'm slowly starting to feel better and we also have a new cat: Penny! She was a stray cat Marco's father started to feed some months ago and now he has passed away, Marco wanted to bring her to our home, so now we have 4 cute furballs :-))) Back to your swap, thanks a million, the cards are lovely and they're now on the wall next to my PC! And the eucalyptus candies are fantastic, thanks again!

Comment: It's always a pleasure to receive your swaps. I love the Basilur tea. I did not know this brand but I like it very much. Thx for the extra sleepy time tea from Celestial. My hubby is very thankful because our local store has no continuity in providing this tea anymore. And I loved your letter and card as well. Till soon xxx

Thank you for the second package for "Chocomania, milk edition"! I love everything you sent. It looks like this one was posted october 3rd via economy shipping, so it took a little more than two months. Many thanks.
