Letting go of tea I don't love
I have just started buying and learning about loose leaf tea over this past year. It has been such a joy! I’ve found so many teas I love. But I realized a few weeks ago that I am forcing myself to drink the teas I don’t love, too. I’m considering trading for teas I might like better, or just giving them away for shipping. Do I have to fill out my cupboard, or can I just list them here? What works best? Thanks!
I would just list what you want to trade or give away.
You might also want to mention what types of teas you would want to trade for, i.e.. exchange for.
im open to trades. please check out my cupboard
Thanks folks, here we go! I did not take the tea out of the pouches, so weight is approximate. You can see l am not a fan of most black teas. I do love me some Jabberwocky!

Would you sell them? If so, I could take them all off your hands.
What I love is wuyi oolong, tieguanyin that is not heavily roasted, Taiwanese oolongs that are not heavily roasted, and green teas. Like I mentioned, I love Jabberwocky by Whispering Pines. What other blacks might I like? I also like some jin jun meis with backbone.
I can’t drink shu due to a health condition that keeps me from consuming fermented foods. But I adore sheng.
Hello my tea friends, I have three packages of Ruby 18 black teas that I’m just not enjoying. They are all good teas, I just don’t enjoy the tomato-mint thing that this varietal had going on. At least that’s how it tastes to me!
Let me know if you’re interested and we can work out a swap.
Song Tea Twenty-One, about 40g
Dachi Sun Moon Lake, about 110g from two packs
And a random sheng
2010 YS Pasha mountain, 25g
I’m interested. What are you looking for? If you’re still interested in greens, I think I have quite a bit.
I don’t think I do, off the top of my head. But, I will double check. It might take me an hour or so. TWD is on. Lol
I don’t have any of those. :(
I mostly have small samples left or David’s Teas and such. :/
Bummer. It doesn’t have to be exactly what’s on my wishlist, but I’d be looking to swap for close to an equivalent value, which is around $70-75.
