Hi all! Hope everybody is doing well!

I have three teas up for swaping/trading if anybody is interested. I rec’d them on Friday and tried them today. I only tried a few teaspoons out of each pkg. Let me know if anybody is interested. All are 52teas. Thanks!

Vanilla Mint
Fruit Cocktail

Thanks!! :)

Batrachoid said

I think I’d be interested in them. What kind of tea would you be looking for ?(you don’t have any ratings to go off of and your shopping list is the just the Grasshopper. I figure you put it on the wrong list? I do that sometimes(^_^; ))
Although I’m a little confused. The only vanilla mint 52 did is Grasshopper. Is it Adagio’s? I ask because everything in your cupboard is

It is 52teas. Below I listed a link. I’m really not too picky about my teas so I’m up for any kind you might have. I just hate throwing away tea that I think someone else might enjoy :) And my bad sorry! Its called Shamrock tea. For some reason I was thinking Vanilla Mint was its name b/c its listed on the pkg. Sorry about that!

Batrachoid said

Oh, I see. I forgot about that one. =) I’m the same way about waste. How long has it been open? (I’ll trade for any/all, I’d just like to know what needs to go first. I’m craving vanilla/mint like crazy lately. No idea why…)
How about some Rose or Green Tuocha, Tao Royal Phoenix Ooolong and one or two Imperial Garden Lychee Jasmine tea flowers? PM me. =)

Can you follow me so I can Pm you? Thanks!! :)

I have not tried any Adagio, 52, or specialteas. If you still have the Touchas would love to try those. I could do a sampler of what I have or an all out swap.

Sure, I’ll send you a PM. Thanks!

Chiz said

I know that you have at least sampled Almond Biscotti already, but l can swap an entire 2oz (minus 2-4 tsps) of Samurai Chai Mate and Almond Biscotti from Teavana just for any samples of whatever you have lying around. :)

Jude said

A Teavana’s going to open soon a couple of miles from me so I’ll look for sample sizes for you if they have any when they open. LMK if there’s anything in particular you’d like to try.

Meanwhile, I’ve got .3 oz of Dragonwell that I’d be up for trading for Tiramisu Rooibos or JaveVana.

Ooohh Chiz, that sounds good. I’ll PM you.
Jude, I’ll PM you too. Thanks!!

Green Rooibos Citron (full sample)
I am most interested in non-flavored greens, black, and oolongs.

I’ll take the green rooibos – I don’t have anything in particular that I need to get rid of, but poke around in my Cupboard and see what catches your eye.

kaybee said

If you don’t mind receiving an already opened bag, I’ve got some adagio lapsang to trade. I can also make samples of Peet’s Russian Caravan and a strong Russian-style earl grey.

I don’t mind at all. I think that’s what the swap is all about. I would love to try the Russian Caravan. What would you like from what I have?

kaybee said

A bit of the maeda-en genmaicha sounds good.

Sure! PM me you address and I’ll send you mine!

I purchased a tin of Chicago Tea Garden Keemun Hao Ya, brewed a pot of it, and discovered I do not care for it. I would be willing to swap the open tin, and the rest of the tea (I don’t have a scale, but I am guessing there is about 40 grams left in the tin), for something interesting. Right now I’d be most interested in swapping for gyokuro, genmaicha extra green, malty/robust or flavored blacks or any type of oolongs (I’d love to try Chicago Tea Garden Aromatic Zealong, if anyone has that, or American Tea Room Milk Oolong). I don’t care for jasmine tea. Feel free to hit me up!

Here is the tea I have for swap: http://www.chicagoteagarden.com/buy/china/keemun-hao-ya-grade-chinese-breakfast-tea

Batrachoid said

I’d be willing to swap. I have some dong ding and Ti kuan Yin or the genmaicha extra green. Also some Jasmine black.

Batrachoid, thanks! What brands of Ti Kuan Yin and genmaicha extra green do you have?

Batrachoid said

I have Ti Kuan Yin from A Better Choice and Oteao and matcha iri genmicha from Rhee Bros.

Jude said

Not sure if you have any left but I’d be happy to swap some for some SpecialTeas Tie Kuan Yin Oolong, EnjoyingTea Green Oolong (bags) or Specialteas Keemun Special Grade.

I have a tin of Harney’s Birthday Tea. It’s just not my thing. Maybe it’s just me because everyone else (reviews here and on their site) gave it high ratings).


I have 19/20 tea sachets remaining. I can either trade the whole thing or I can break it up into several trades. Let me know how many sachets you want.

I am looking to trade for flavored black or white teas or flavored rooibos teas. I am esp interested in anything from Davids Tea since it is hard to get here. I’d also be interested in plain black teas.

I cannot trade for green tea because it gives me migraines. Oh, and I am vegan, so I cannot trade for teas containing dairy such as chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or those little square pieces of caramel.

Update – all the birthday tea has been claimed.

Kristen said

I would love to try some of this… I do have some buttered rum from David’s tea and Pumpkin chai from David’s Tea if you are interested in either of those? Let me know! Oh I also have some Read my lips from Davids Tea.

Kristen said

Wait I think the Read my lips has small chocolate chips in it. Sorry bout that. You can also check my cupboard

Kristin said

I PM’d you. I just looked and the pumpkin chai has dairy. Fooey! Definitely will want to try the buttered rum! And actually the read my lips is ok (I looked on their list of teas that contain dairy and it just says that it may have come in contact with dairy, but they doesn’t specifically contain dairy).

I have an almost full sampler tin of Adagio’s Yunnan Golden Pu-erh to swap, preferably loose leaf. Check out my cupboard. PM me.

I’d be willing to swap with you. Let me know I also have some teas not on my list.
