It has been too long since we last exchanged. Perhaps we can organize a new one. :) They are fun!

We did the exchange April '08. I don't know it they did one before then, and no one mentioned whether or not they'll do it again.

My tea exchange buddy and I have stayed in touch, which I think was the purpose of the exchange - to provide a lasting connection between people.

I fall down, then I get up. I'd like to get up more often and stay up longer.

Hi, I'm fairly new to the team. I'm wondering how this works. Is there a new exchange that goes for a certain time period (e.g. over a month or two)and then you start a new exchange? I'm a little overextended right now, but I'd love to get in on something like this around mid-May or so. Just wondering. -thanks

I didn't realize that loose tea lasted so much longer than boxes of bag tea. Loose tea may cost a little more outright, but a year later, you still have a stash instead of running out to buy more each month.

Since people are still asking about the tea buddy trades, maybe there should be a thread just for people still wanting to trade. Then whoever and pair themselves up after discussing things over spark mail.

The trade introduced me to new flavors, one of which is now a favorite.

JossieMae and PICHIKEEN why don't the two of you lost at the first post to this thread, then email each other and then make the exchange.

You can let each other know what you have, and what you don't like.

Good luck on whatever you attempt. I hope your small efforts reap big rewards.

Sometimes, that does happen. If it's too big, I have to go at it. At the end of the day, I find that I'd accomplished more than I realized. (I just have to push myself to continue the next day so I won't lose the benefits.)

I did buy one of the standing plastic storage "closets" for my basement and we have most of our winter clothes down there. That helps. Soon DDs will also be taking their winter clothes back with them. I still need to weed out a lot of my own stuff. I just don't wear it all and it is silly to hang on to what I don't use. Next time I have the snacking urge, SHE4BOOK, I will take your advice and sort through my clothes instead.

Misterz-

If your basement isn't damp, you could consider having clothing racks there for each of your daughters' clothes.

Frolic-

If you separate your clothes, it may be easier to take out the ones you no longer need or use.

Dedicate the smallest closet to clothes you probably won't use as much, then see if you ever pull out any of those clothes. If you pull out something and actually wear it, put that in with the clothes you use.

Look at your clothes by color - possibly for duplicates.

Look at the sets, the dresses, seasonal wear.

I lived in a place that had a pole across the top of the closet. I took a mop handle and added a hook so I could reach those clothes. I no longer have that type of closet, but I still need that mop handle to reach things.

Sort or try on clothes when you have an urge to snack. Or give yourself points for each piece you either relocate or get rid of (highest points).

I read that it may make it easier to get rid of things by 'loaning' them out.

FROLIC - I know what you mean about having too many clothes. I finally did donate a lot of them to the Career Closet and had lots more room. Then both my DDs moved and had less space in their new places and both brought home out-of-season clothes to store at our house. Guess what? The closets are even more crowded than before. emoticon

LOL! Right now I'd settle for figuring out how to get my wardrobe in available space. I didn't realize how many clothes I had until I really looked the other day. It's a good thing I'm single. I've taken over all the closets in my house & they're overflowing. Yikes! I'm really going to have to get serious about weeding out the things I don't like the fit, color, or style of so that I only keep the few thousand I wear rather than the plethora I currently have bumping around my closets.

The boutique idea is a really good one.

I have see-thru closets for my shoes, a two-tier dish rack for my make-up (in see-thru Mary Kay pouches with all related colors together). But my clothes, I'm working on that.

I'm hoping that when I can dress like I envision, I'll keep my weight down.

I'll sip tea while I think on implementing something workable.

Love that thought. At a women's expo a few years ago one of the speakers said something that really struck home. If you want to use something, think like a boutique. Display your jewelry. Put your clothes on shelves where you can see them in nice piles. Store shoes on a rack where you can see them. Same goes for tea. I find that when I keep a bit of my favorite tea out all the time I drink more. :) Y'all have some great ideas for making it even better. (Boy would I love to have a little tea nook. Someday ...)

I like having a special place for my teas. I wanted to put a bistro table nearby but couldn't work that out. Tea is like an aspect of my life, it needs its own place.

I keep mine out or I'd never have tea at home. I drink it all day at work 'cause it's better than the coffee offered by the office, but at home I often forget. I have a couple of airtight canisters I keep mine in. I separate out the spicy ones from the florals so that the latter don't get drowned out.

Think we are all really enjoying our tea. Last night I had the Stash Lemon Blossom that SHEBOOK4 sent me. I'm adding it to my list of favorites and buying a whole box.

Good idea about having all your tea things out on your counter on the little shelves. My kitchen is small so not a lot of counter space but I might try doing that. Right now my tea is in a basket in a cupboard and it's hard to get to it all. emoticon

I'm getting ready to enjoy the Desert Sun tea you sent, Mary.

I have a little 3-shelf bathroom cart, that I took the wheels off and placed on a counter. That's where I keep all my tea and tea related items. Now I want to set up an area at my (very) part time job for tea drinkers. I was to also dress it up a little but I don't quite know how yet. It's in a warehouse with hay, boxes and plants but I love oasis type places.

Found a nice package of tea in my mailbox today from SHEBOOK4. Thanks so much, Sheila. Great assortment of tea...even some of the pods I have been wanting to try. I am about to brew myself a cup of the Tazo Chai, put my feet up after a wild morning at work, and read a good book on the deck in the sun. Will need a sweater, as we are barely into the 60s here, but the sun will feel good. You are so right about tea being comforting and soothing. A toast to all of us tea drinkers!! This exchange is really fun. Have a great afternoon, everyone. emoticon

Tea is sooo comforting and soothing. A glowing candle and the prayers of many people were my lifeline. I have much to be grateful for.

I toast all the good we have in life, with a cup of Mary's Cranberry Pomegranate. And Thank God

I've had rose hips before, I never thought to blend it.

My loose teas are:

Current
Red Current (tastes better)*
Blueberry
White Blueberry
White Tangerine
White Tropics
Caramel
Cream
Darjeeling #1, #2 #22 * but which one
Plum
Pineapple
White Darjeeling
Orange Spice
Passion Fruit *
White Peony *
Christmas *
Sour Apple
Lemon Mango Punch (Rooibus)
Cranberry
Sunshine Lemon (Rooibus)
Lemon Green *****
Peach Apricot
Ice Wine ***
Brandied Apple
Berry Blast
Cherry
Chocolate
Raspberry Patch
Wild Strawberry

This tea explosion started when I had breast cancer and was going through Chemo. It destroys your taste buds. So I was looking for something to fix that, and calm my stomach so I could eat. (I only lost 19 pounds and gained it back.) That was 2 years ago and most of these teas will expired January 2008. Ten of these are 2 ounce samplers, 7 are 1/2 pounds and the rest are one pounds. A few are nearly gone.

I like your collection. I will make mines a little more sensible after I pick out my favorites. Maybe I can put a star sticker on the canisters so I'll remember.

Thanks, Mary.

Barbark - what flavors of loose teas do you have? I asked Mary if she had a strainer and she said she did so I didn't have to worry about that. I have disposable tea bag filters, also.

Part of the delay also was that I have a lot of loose teas and don't feel comfortable sending them in the mail. My sister has a lot of teas also, all bags and she allows me to help myself to her stash. So I sent Mary a combined collection.

I really like my tea buddy. I received her tea today. But wasn't able to mail mine until this morning. I thought I lost her address and was too ashamed to admit it and ask for it again. I searched my canvas carry bag (where I keep my read-and-handle-soon mail) twice and didn't find it. Then last night, I said I'll check it one more time. As soon as I opened the bag, there was my pink diary (where I kept the information). I feel a little silly, but I still have to laugh at myself.

Mary has an awesome collection of fruit herbal teas. I think I've learned something from her - that I can shop locally and still find something tasty and interesting.

Just got back from a trip to see my BF & e-mailed my buddy! Yeah! I need to check my stash, but would certainly be glad to exchange again. It's so much fun!

Thanks :) Just a crazy week - I had Jury Duty Monday, Wed, Thur just for the selection - yea I got chosen for a 2-4 week trail "sigh" so work is crazy trying to get ready and my in-laws are here next week so we are trying to get the house in order. Good thing is the courthouse is right across the street from the post office so I can walk over there one day on my lunch break :) Guess my workouts will have to wait again...I am falling off and need a push to get back

I'm in the process of checking in on those who haven't contacted their buddy, and I will pair their partners up with one of you ladies who haven't heard yet, up with someone else. There are at least 5 of you waiting to hear so if nothing else, Vicki and I are willing to take another buddy :) Guess I took too long to pair everyone up and they lost interest. I'll keep in touch!

I am not getting notification of this thread! Sometimes I guess we need to resubscribe to them. I'm checking off who has exchanged or been in contact and then will be redoing the pairing with those that are new in joining (thanks for that) :) ..or some will be willing to do exchange with more than one person, I will do that too, thanks Vicki! There are still a lot of people that seem to have disappeared since signup :( But we'll get there! Have a good day!

I would love a tea exchange buddy. I used to own a shop with my DIL. She did lunch specials and I had crafts, collectibles. We carried a full line of herbs, spices and teas. We closed in January and I still have alot of the teas left. Dedicated tea lover here. Hugs. Barb emoticon

Hi Mary,

Enjoyed reading your email, you sound like a very pleasant person. Your aunt probably loves your company and support (praying for her recovery).

I'm getting a little excited now also. I like sharing my tea, that's why I have so much. And I like serving it, with settings.

I fall down, then I get up. I'd like to get up more often and stay up longer.

I'm very excited about this exchange. I've been given the perfect tea exchange partner! We both enjoy the same teas but it sounds like we have different teas to share, and we both dislike the same teas so no worries about receiving something we won't drink. Thanks!

I think that depends on what you work out with your buddy. The last time I did it, we sent our "don't likes" and the ultimate package contents were a surprise. If you wanted to, you could let your buddy know what you are sending. That's part of the joy of the system. It's between the two of you!

Are we suppose to surprise each other with the types of tea? I mean is it suppose to be a secret until you receive your package?

I looked, but I can't find Honeybea. I see Honeybeez but she has a different exchange partner. Did I miss something/someone??? I'll go see if I missed another post......I need my cup of morning tea to wake me up emoticon

Please refresh my memory. How many servings of tea are we suppose to send?

Please disregard. I found the original thread and it says 6-8 tea bags.

Hi Tea Lovers!
Shelley is starting to feel better so we worked together last night via the internet and got the list done, yay!
Here are the buddies. If I forgot anyone, I'm so sorry, or if anyone on the list can no longer do the exchange, please let me know.
Now, what we all need to do is contact our buddies via sparkmail and keep in touch with each other, letting each other know tea preferences/dislikes etc and exchange names and addresses. Please let them know when you are sending and have received your tea, then please make a post on this thread to let us know when you get your teas! :) This will be fun, like always :) Any questions, please sparkmail me, thanks ladies!
