Facebook Tea Swap

I recently took part in a tea swap in one of my Facebook groups. We were divided into groups of four and sent 10 bags of tea to each other. I love tea and thought this was a great way to try new flavors, as well as pass on some of the teas we purchased but didn't really care for.

  1. What a wonderful idea. I've done the cookie swap at Xmas but nothing like this. You are a lucky woman. :-)
