Sounds like fun. Will check your list with more detail soon and let you know what I am interested. Check out my cupboard and let me know if anything strikes your fancy. Oh and btw I am in the Chicagoland area too. So “Hi neighbor!”. :-)

Mel said

Hello fellow Illinoisian! Have you ever been to Todd and Holland? I used to live in Chicago for 6 years, but moved out to Rockford for my mom. I hope to have a cupboard like yours in the future!

I have not and have never heard of it. What is it? BTW you only live about 30 to 45mins west of me. :-)

I’d love to trade you for the jasmine pearls and maybe the white tea Elderflower

What kinds of teas do you prefer – I can look over what I’ve got and suggest some things you might like out of my collection.

Mel said

That almond cookie one sounds insanely good. I like about anything. I am pretty new in tasting new teas.

wombatgirl said

I’ll go home, look at my collection, and send you a PM with some ideas, ok?

I’d like Guayalo Mate Chocolatte 4 teabags

Looks like this thread is turning into an open swap, so I’ll finally throw mine up for the taking.

Adagio Yunnan Jig – full (1oz?) sample
Adagio Keemun Concerto – full (1oz?) sample
A&D Caravan – full 2oz tin (will likely be sent in two clean Adagio sample tins)

All are too smoky for me. I pinched just enough off the top to try a small cup, but I would still consider them full.

I’d especially like to try mate, if anyone has some for trade.

Meghann M said

Not sure if you still have these but I would love to try the Adagio Keemun Concerto and/or A&D Caravan. I have a full 1oz sample of Adagio’s Mocha Nut Mate and a 1oz sample of Adagio’s Yerba Mate if you would like to swap. Also, anything in my cupboard I could send samples/swap with too.

I have a few teas up for trade as well, all from Adagio…
- Lapsang Souchong (4 oz.)
- Mambo (4 oz.)
- Snowbud (half the sample tin)

Jillian said

I’ll take the Mambo…uh though I’ve never tried it before, so I’m not sure if I want that much – can I maybe have half? If you’d rather not split it, that’s fine.

Tabby said

Sure! I’ll PM you.

I have a unique tea that I am looking to swap. I have consumed some myself, and I have already swapped some with other friends. I am looking to swap some more “samples” out. I have swapped as low as 25 grams, and as much as 100 grams. Here is a link to the product page,
http://www.chicagoteagarden.com/buy/china/you-zi-cha-pomelo-pu-erh .
If you are interested in the unique tea, let me know.
I generally like unflavoured teas. I would be interested in Oolongs, Chinese Greens, Chinese Blacks, or possibly other teas. Let me know if you are interested, and what you would like to swap. Hope to hear from ya soon.
