Hello, fellow tea lovers!

Today I was thinking how much I love to receive teas from foreign countries, teas I could never find where I live, and so I thought, what about a local tea swap? Would you like to join me in this journey through European teas?

The rules are super simple:

  • 1 partner
  • You'll send 12 different teabags - individually sealed, no naked bags, no loose teas
  • There can't be two identical teabags, they need to be all different (same flavor from different brands is OK - same brand with different flavor is OK, too)
  • Please check your partner's profile and don't send teas they totally hate or they can't drink because of allergies: let's remember, the purpose of swaps is to make people happy, not sick! :-)
  • And the last but most important rule is: all the teabags must be from your country! No reswapped teas. No global brands like Twinings or Lipton. No foreign brands (i.e., if you're from Germany, you are not allowed to send Pickwick teas). It's a swap for local teas only :-)

Please remember to add a card with your name and the swap's name. If you want to aim for a heart rating, of course please feel free to add anything you want: more teas, a letter, some stickers, a postcard, whatever you want. This is optional though!

Let's have fun! Happy Tea Summer!

Local tea from France, in tea-bags... not sure I can get any...we have only well known brands but made FOR French customers as it is the same with all the international brands around the world! I jnow that from as a Marketing girl!

Karina, I tried some teas from "Les Jardins de Gaia", which is a French brand, and I found them delicious! I'm not sure if you can find them easily though. And I think there are many supermarket teas that are quite good, too (like Carrefour) :-)

HI, Francesca...Casino, Carrefour (you can find it nearly everywhere!) and so on...but 12 different, it is going to be hard...and other good teas are loose tea or nake bags... Then you have Lipton, but Lipton some flavors are only for France...

As usual I would love to join but I do not want to disappoint my partner...

I'm sorry about that, Karina, but we'll soon have a loose tea swap, and I'm sure you'll be happy with that :-)))
