Old Swap Thread!

2812 Replies

I advise that anyone still following here checks out the new category!

I went ahead and started multiple threads that are specific to where swaps are happening. More specifically – US only, US/Canada (North America!), European, and completely International!

If anyone thinks there should be other threads, throw a bracket [test] in front of it and get it going!

Eventually, if those threads get going, I think a positive review or positive swapper thread would be a good idea. Then people can check it out to see who has swapped before and take the guess work out of bad experiences knowing that someone has credibility!

I think a swapper thread would be great, so long as it only includes positive reviews. Getting into the negative can be a sticky and hurtful situation.

Maybe the person who created this topic can update it with the new category?

Yes, please! That way we can find it easily. With all the new and specific swap threads, this one could get lost.

I actually have a few teas I’m looking to swap out:

Butiki Peach Oolong (8g, ~3 cups)
DavidsTea Cranberry Pear (13g, ~4 cups)
52Teas S’mores Genmaicha (6g, ~2 cups)

I’d really like to try out some more Red Leaf Matchas or some different Butiki or Della Terra blends, but I’m open to other things as well if anyone is interested. Let me know :)

Good Morning:)
I would love to try a couple of nice oolongs through swapping. I just received my first oolong purchase from 52 Teas, VIT Cranberry Oolong. I’m not sure what I think of it! If anyone has a special oolong that they would be willing to swap a cup of, that would be awesome. I can def. send you a cup or two of the cranberry and whatever else I have in my cupboard that you’d like to try….THANK YOU!

I’m actually looking to swap out my Peach Oolong from Butiki if you’re interested :) I could also send a cups worth of DavidsTea Tung Ting Vietnam oolong.

Hi Courtney,
I am now following you. That sounds awesome! If you’d like to look through my cupboard and let me know what you’re interested in, I’m happy to swap.
Thanks!

I’ve updated the first post and added links to the new swap threads. I suppose that we can consider this one “CLOSED” now. :)

I was wondering!!! I thought this was the main one…

i think we are free to post wherever, it is just that here there is an extra step of specifying if you are swapping within US only or such.

oh yeah, you might wanna change the category of this thread, Queen! so that it shows up with all the other swap threads :)
