Anyone still read this community and would be up for a swap? I have SOOO much tea and would love to get some new flavors.

I have in my possession a sample of rooibos with chocolate and mint, purchased at a local tea-shop where I live. The blend is called After 7, presumably because it's supposed to resemble After 8 chocolates.

I've got 10 grams. It should be enough for about two pots, I'd say.

I didn't care much for it, but as I really hate throwing tea out I'm offering it up for trade. (I hate throwing tea out so much that I'm actually willing to pay for postage to get rid of it!)

Normally I'd say whoever came first got it, but this time I think I'll say that I'll keep the offer up for a couple of days and whoever offers a sample of the most interesting tea gets it. I don't want a big amount, I just want enough for making two pots or so. An equal amount of what I've got to send out.

This is what I've already got (as well as an absolutely wonderful lapsang souchong that haven't been added to the table yet) If there are any of these that others that you'd like to trade samples of, just let me know. I've only got small amounts of many of many, so I might not have enough to trade. Just ask me.

(Due to customs regulation, I'm not sending anything to Australia. Sorry)

I'm crossposting this all over the place, so if you're interested, have at it. :)

Hello all :)
I just came across this community and I think it is a wonderful idea, but I notice it has been rather quiet for quite a while. Do you still do tea swaps? I would love to trade with anyone interested!

Since people are starting to message me about the traveling tea boxes, and somehow the community invitations seem to have evaded a large amount of people. The updates on the traveling tea boxes are here:


Please sign up to community to follow the boxes, watch for the lists and keep apprised of all updates. There are lists for each four boxes, rules and the first set of confirmation notes on it already.
feeling: accomplished

Today is the last day to sign-up for the traveling tea box. During the weekend I will be making the lists for the box(es) and distributing e-mails. The tea boxes will hopefully be released to start their journey's on Monday.

If you still want in, sign up HERE.

In less than twenty-four hours almost twenty people have already piped up that they'd like to be part of a traveling tea box, thus we shall have a Traveling Tea Box. (And you may add chocolate drinks, ciders, and other things of that assortment, if those to your heart compels, as well.) The rules will be simple, to keep this fun and fast and lacking in red tape.


1. You may take as little or much as you want. The only requirement is to put back at least the amount of what you take.

2. Please try to keep the box only one week, and contact me if it will take longer. (Envision that this is already twenty weeks = 5ish months, before others join in and shipping time is added in!)

3. Everytime the box is sent out there will be delivery confirmation purchased with it. I leave to your discretion on whether you want to ship by parcel post or priority, but delivery confirmation is only about seventy-five cents and a must.

(4. Not a must, or a rule. Sort of a 'please'. Take pictures as you can so we can document the growth of our love here.)

Hello everybody, I've got a question from a friend. I haven't been able to find anything on Google so far, so I thought I'd ask around.

kazfeist wrote,
When we were in England last (about two years ago), I bought a box of tea from the museum attached to Buckingham Palace. It was on sale, and the monies went for palace upkeep or some similar goal. Anyway, the tea was called Scottish Afternoon Tea and had a picture of Queen Mary on it, I think (you know, the Catholic one). Is that blend (Scottish Afternoon) a blend that is easily obtainable? It had a bit of bergamot in it, not as strong as Earl Grey or Lady Grey, and not as citrus-y as Prince of Wales. But it was subtle and nice, and I am almost through the box and wondered about being able to replace it. The individual bags don't have a tea blender/seller's name on them.

In an additional comment kazfeist mentioned that she thinks the tea's original venue was St. James Palace.

Have anybody heard of this before? I seem to recall having heard of it before and I also seem to recall having heard of a Queen Mary blend, but haven't been able to find any place where it's on sale. kazfeist is american, so I expect she'll be looking for some place where she could buy it online.

just a heads up that i'll be switching over to girldust at the beginning of september (or whenever it is this paid time runs out). i've been trying to step down out of a couple of my other communities, because i really just have no time or motivation for them, anymore; next semester is going to be crazy. this community will be unaffected by the change.

and i'd like to apologize for the lack of monthly swaps. i decided to wait until the holiday swap got back to me, so i could finish taking care of that. i actually thought i had made a post about it, but apparently not. yea, i'm totally on top of things. :\
lame, i know.
