2nd annual tea trade

can you believe that is almost autumn already? where has the time gone?

the good news is that it's almost time for the 2nd annual tea trade!! last years was a blast and again, my thanks to all who participated.

this years trade is going to be just a little different than before. i am opening up this tea trade to loose tea as well as bagged tea. to participate you must be willing to ship your package internationally.

how it works: tea traders will send a sampling of 3 - 4 ounces (85 - 113 grams) to another participating tea trader. (most boxes of pre-bagged tea is usually between 1.8 -2 oz or 51 - 57 grams)

details: please send an email to melitamollohan@gmail.com with the subject line "tea trade." in the body of the email please share your address . i will then match up people round robin style and give you a name and address of where to send your teas packages. all of your personal information will be kept strictly confidential. if you feel more comfortable providing your work address rather than personal that is totally fine. also, if you do not wish to provide your name please make sure you let me know in the email and who ever will be sending your tea package will label the envelope "tea trade" and your address.

special prize: i will award a special prize to one lucky tea trader. special prize will be announced soon (i'm still working on gathering a few goodies for the lucky winner).

due date: please email me your information by september 15th so that we can start tea trading at the end of september!

I read about your tea trade from kaileenelise's blog. I joined a tea exchange last year and enjoyed trying a new tea that I would not normally go out and purchase.

I will be sending you an email with my details shortly.
