This swap is pretty easy... you send 3 factory sealed bags of tea to 1 partner... the catch is the tea you mail must be unusual, weird, or not an average flavor... meaning no run of the mill teas... the teas you send must be flavors that are not available in every grocery store all the time... specialty teas or even seasonal... stuff like Lavender lime, minty hazelnut, chocolate raspberry... etc

Please note that some tea may be rare in one place and not so rare in another... however please remember not to send just regular grocery store flavors...

No picky swappers for this swap.... you get what you get and if you dont like it you can re-swap...


No super new newbies... at least 5 ratings for type 2 or 3 swaps and they must be different swaps...

I am wondering what could be usual where one person lives but not where others live.

I would be worried that one tea is common in another area. I guess if I got to a tea store a local tea house and buy a tea, and then my partner just bought it a month ago, she could rate a three correct, even though what I think of a rare tea is not after all.

I have one bag I never heard of before the swapper sent it to me. Could there be a clause in the swap for those of us that really do send a 'rare' tea for our area yet is not at the senders area please.?

@Fawnscrafts - You can solve this problem yourself by simply adding a note along with your tea. Tell your partner where you got your tea, or why you think that it's odd or just that you've never seen this flavor before.

Can it be loose tea? I picked up some awesome, unique loose tea in London that someone might like.

Thank you,

I only buy loose tea, but this sounds like it would have been neat! Have fun, all! :)
