Tea Shop Swap

Had this idea for a while. A dedicated thread where people who aren’t close to a local tea shop can make a request that someone else who is make a purchase in their behalf and mail it. Probably makes sense for the requester to offer something in exchange (ie swap).

You can post a request for a specific shop or an offer to buy for a specific shop close to you.

So I have a bunch of teas that I don’t want/need. Mostly because I issues with tannins in normal tea, and so can’t really drink these.

I’m looking for someone to buy herbal/rooibos/mate blends from DavidsTea – preferably in the US – and mail to me. Am open to other options as well.

I think I’m only going to swap as an entire lot. Too much hassle any other way.

Sil select said

Might be worth putting in to the swap section of the site for those people that look there for swaps, versus the general discussion area
