Tea Tag-pay it forward type-swap
I’ve got an ounce (minus 2 tsps) of Immortal Nectar Puerh from Art of Tea.
Edited to add: Also throwing in a tin of http://steepster.com/teas/khai-sinn-tea/14718-japanese-green-tea (it’s okay, but I’m not a big fan of plain green tea, so someone else would probably like it more).
Oh I’ve seen that on their site- purple!:) Vintage ‘97, good stuff. Is it a sheng or shu? Based on the appearance and description I’m guessing shu, but I hope I’m wrong.
I honestly don’t know the difference between sheng and shu, so I can’t tell you that. But it ain’t purple, either.
Sheng is raw pu erh, shu is cooked. Pu Erh is neither but in flavor shu could be more compared to a black tea while sheng could be more compared to a white, green, or green oolong. I’m massively disappointed it isn’t purple. :(
If I had to bet, it’s shu, then. I didn’t know it was supposed to be purple. I know the pic of the Orchid Oolong is purple, and the tea itself isn’t, either.
SEVERAL Bags (up to 40 of them) of The Tea Nation’s JASMINE Green Tea.
Who wants it!?
I also have a non-descript, thumb pressed pu-erh ball, wrapped in very cheap paper, that came from by a chanting buddhist kayaker in Buthan. It tastes old, not necessarily well-processed and like what real pu-erh tea served to commonfolk probably tastes like. Anyone think this sounds ever-so appetizing?
Let’s start this up again…
I’m in the process of getting rid of some of my stash…
thought I would start with this one…I enjoy it but also think it would ship in a smaller envelop well and thought I would pass it along to the first interested party!
I don’t have an exact measurement but I am thinking it’s about 2-ounces or more. It’s American Tea Room’s ChocoLate*
I’m also interested in smaller swaps at this time if anyone is interested…let me know…
Oooh, yes please. Interested in David’s Tea Cinnmaon Heart (really cinnamon-y pu-erh) or about 40 grams (3 oz) of Britannia Bakeapple, a fruit-flavoured black tea from my local teashop? (A bakeapple, also called a cloudberry, is a bog-berry, difficult to pick, at once peachy and musky.)
Ooh can I claim the cinnamon heart? I’ve been drooling over that one but haven’t placed my David’s order yet.
I have 2oz minus 3teaspoons of Teavana’s new JavaVana Mate upfor grabs. It’s a mocha flavored roasted mate.
Michelle…it’s YOURS!!!! I’d love to try the Britannia Bakeapple if it’s still available! Drop me a PM with your snail mail info!
I’m up for some smaller swaps as well, just look in my cupboard and I’ll tell you if I have any available (I really need to clean it sometime lol)
I’d love to try the JavaVana. I’ll go through my tea stash and see what I have to pass on.
Meghann, you’ve got the Cinnamon Hearts, and I’ld lov to try that mate. PM coming your way.
TeaEqualsBliss, I really hope you’ll like the Bakeaple.
I have some bags of Red Velvet chocolate rooibos by Republic of teas up for grabs. PM me and I can divide it up if a few people want to try it. (domestic shipping to US only)
I would love to try a couple bags. Feel free to look in my cupboard if there is anything you would like to try.
I’ll offer up 52teas kitchen sink green. A nearly full pouch.
Tea Equals Bliss and Meghann I will send you some! Can you PM me your address and I will get it on its way soon.
Oh man, do you have any more of this you want to give away?
You can also look in my cupboard to see if there is anything you want to try!
Kristin- I still have some bags, pm me your address and I will send it out with the others… most likely will send it out on Monday.
I have some Davidson’s Morrocan Mint, Harney and Sons Hunan Mao Jian, and some 2008 Yi Wu Mtn. Roasted Bamboo Pu-Erh from Norbu Teas if anyone wants some! (domestic shipping to US only)
I will take any of the stuff that is not the mint! unless of course the other guy took it all and I will offer up some goodness from my cupboard when I get back to my apartment
I have almost 1 oz of the Strawberry Cream Rooibos from Fava Tea for the first person who wants it.
Borrowing this from my swap posting:
- Ciao Amaretto small bag
- Adagio Rooibos 3 oz
I’d love to try the Rishi tea and I love Adagio spearmint. I could offer you:
-Cinnamon Roll Honeybush from 52Teas
-50 grams from ESP Emporium in either Feng Shui, Cool Mint, or Wellness
-or samples of my Adagio signature blends, and my Pink Pearls blend
PM me if interested. :)
This isn’t really a swap from what I gather. One person offers something. The next person claims it and then offers something to be sent to someone else. (A offers, B claims and puts up a new offer, C claims and puts up another offer…..) It is a Pay It Forward…… I know this type of swap goes very well on another board I frequent. If you two want to go ahead and swap, I will think of something to offer get the PIF going…. I really don’t want anything in return, so I could easily come up with something. Let me know.
I know it’s not supposed to be a swap, I was offering for PIF, but I’m also willing to swap with you KeenTeaThyme. PM me and we’ll set it up. I’ll edit my post and still offer those for PIF.
