Tea Swap is back! I’m so excited. I hope you are too!
Brooklyn Farm Girl has hosted a few tea swaps in the past, from tea + chocolate, to tea + Halloween, to tea + snowmen to lots of other fun themes. The last swap was in December and I totally apologize for not setting up a new one since then. The swaps are something I have lots of fun with and I believe you guys do too so I’m going to really try hard to get these back on a monthly schedule.
Nothing can keep me away from a hot cup of tea, not even the middle of Summer. Sure, it’s 90 degrees out but I’m still going to start and end my day with a cup of tea! There’s something calming about a cup of tea. Maybe it’s the process of making it and waiting for the leaves to steep, maybe it’s that it is always part of get togethers with friends, maybe it’s just the comfort of a favorite flavor. I’m not sure what it is but tea is something special to me.
So let’s get swapping already – ok?
The theme for August is: Let’s Relax with Tea and a Snack.
Let’s indulge in a few lazy mornings or afternoons in August. We’re so busy and we rush so much so let’s remember to take a few minutes to just calm down and give ourselves some time. Maybe during this time you write a letter. Maybe during this time you read a book. Maybe during this time you just sit on a comfy couch and do nothing. Whatever it is, make sure you do this curled up with a cup of tea plus a snack.
You will send your partner:
A variety (At least 7 bags of tea) of tea. You can send more if you want but that’s up to you.
Something to snack on with tea. Ideas are cookies, biscuits, chocolate, scones, brownies, muffins. Can be store bought or homemade, but talk with your partner first about allergies!
Something written saying Hello!
How it works:
You sign up here. Sign ups end August 10.
I will send out a email with swap partners by August 12. You and your partner contact one another and exchange mailing addresses over email.
You send each other the swap contents.
You become friends for life.
Anyone can sign up – but you will only be paired with someone in your own country to lower shipping costs. US to US, Canada to Canada, Australia to Australia, UK to UK, etc. If no one signs up from your country, then you don’t have to swap.
Your swap must be sent out by August 20.
Please touch base with your partner by email prior to sending the tea by asking them any preferences or allergies.
Brooklyn Farm Girl is not held responsible for swaps not sent or received.
