I am taking a break from swapping right now, I may have ordered a lot of tea on Black Friday.
I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to two a month so I don’t break the bank.
My favorite tea companies to order from are Butiki, Della Terra, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Verdant, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.
Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, honeybush and peppermint
Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.
Ingredients I’m on the fence about:
I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.
Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.
89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.
79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.
69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.
39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.
19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.
