Tea Swap!

I will be starting a tea swap for anyone who is interested. Sign-up is limited to the first fifty or so people. Just say which kind of tea is your favorite and I will assign you a partner. Then, go and find a tea that your partner likes and send it on! :)

Updated: I forgot to say that the sign-ups will close 1/5/2013 and partners will be assigned no later than 1/9!

Updated:

1/1: If everyone could send me a private message with your addresses….that would be wonderful so I can give them to your partner. I will go follow all of you so you can do that. It would also be great if yall could follow me so I can message all of you!

1/8: I have sent out your partners to those of you who have sent your address. If you haven’t sent your address, please do so. As soon as I receive it, I will assign a partner.

okay. I love oolongs, good cinnamon teas, and flavored rooibos. I also like flavored green teas. So basically, straight oolongs and full flavored teas. (I can only send one ounce things or less, is this okay? Also, I would love a partner who likes Davids Tea, because it’s around the corner from my house)

Isaila, that is totally fine. Thanks for joining!

I am interested in mostly unflavored tea and florals(jasmine, rosemary, cherry blossom etc), whites, greens, oolongs primarily. an exception being Lupicia flavored teas(I am currently exploring), with a few other brands offering teas I am curious about.

I’d love to join! Would the tea swap be a tea sample (a couple of bags?) or an entire tin? Or something in between?

I love a good flavored black tea, chais are nice, and would like to try white teas.

It is up to you how much you want to send to your partner. I was thinking just a few bags but if you are feeling more generous you are welcome to give whatever… :) Thanks for joining!

I really like dessert teas and anything sweet!

Crystal said

Me too! I have some Cookie tea from Lupicia which is really sweet & delicious. Lupicia has a lot of really sweet-flavored teas. We have one about half an hour away from our place, so if you’d like I can pick up some for samples.

@Crystal – which tea is that one called? I’m always looking for new ones to try from Lupicia but don’t want cherry.

Crystal said

@darby – it’s just called Cookie. It’s supposed to taste like a caramel cookie, and it really does. Best had with some milk and a bit of sugar, though, so if that’s not your thing I wouldn’t recommend.

I love Lupicia’s Momo . It’s a peach tea that smells wonderful and is good plain or sweetened, with or without milk. Definitely one of my favorite Lupicia teas. I love their Strawberry tea, too, and the Muscat.

I’m not into cherry-flavored things in general, so don’t have cherry tea at all…

darby select said

THANKS! I’ll go check it out.

darky said

might be astupid question but what’s falling under the ‘dessert tea’ category?

Crystal said

@darky: Just anything that smells/tastes sweet, and usually goes good with milk and sugar. For example, there’s a cantaloupe & cream tea from Butiki Teas that I’m eying, that will probably taste like dessert 8D

darky said

oh, i tought it would be a whole independent category of tea :)
