Just when I was bemoaning the fact that I had drunk up all the delicious tea from the #LitsyTeaSwap, look what arrived in my mailbox! A torn and battered envelope from England, in a plastic bag stamped with a letter from the USPS, apologizing for mangling my mail! Luckily, the yummy vanilla herbal tea bag inside survived unscathed, and I am happily sipping it now. Many thanks, @jenniferw88 , for this delightful surprise! You made my day!

I‘m melting, @KateReadsYA And @julieclair this card is a cu-tea 😬 and your handwriting is AhhMAzing! With some perfect tea options!! Thank you both for showing me how it‘s done!! 🥰🥰🤣🥰🥰

Nutmegnc Also, @CrowCAH @KateReadsYA @julieclair Apparently I‘ve been living under a rock because I had no idea that Taylor‘s of Harrogate was THE tea! It‘s SOOO good!! 4mo
KateReadsYA Hahah you are so welcome! I love to get crafty and shop especially for tea and all things cutesy. Enjoy, it is such a good tea to have hot or over Ice :D 4mo
sarahbellum Agreed- that rose lemonade tea is awesome! @KateReadsYA 4mo

julieclair Yay! So glad you were pleased! I love Taylor's of Harrogate. But... have never heard of the Rose Lemonade flavor. I'll have to try that for sure! This tea swap is so much fun! 4mo
Nutmegnc @julieclair I just went down the rabbit hole of tea!! So. Many. Options!! And Harrowgate consistently ranks among the highest!! 4mo
Nutmegnc Also @julieclair @KateReadsYA @CrowCAH @sarahbellum I‘m already planning on what tea to send for the next swap 🤣🤣🤣. Y‘all raised the stakes!! 4mo
Nutmegnc @Bklover You should join us next time! 4mo
Bklover I would love to! I love tea, especially new kinds I haven‘t tried! Thank you 🫖 4mo
julieclair Ooohhhh…. The rabbit hole of tea! I‘m fond of rabbit holes in general, and one based on tea sounds especially enticing! 😂😀🫖☕️ 4mo
Nutmegnc @Bklover I‘ll tag you for the next swap! 4mo
Nutmegnc @julieclair can‘t say it‘s the first time… 🤣🤣🤣 I went nuts over green tea a few years ago. I ordered green tea from all over the world!! 4mo
julieclair @Nutmegnc I can totally see myself doing something like that! 😂 4mo
Nutmegnc @julieclair and now I can say my favorite is a Chinese green tea called Chun-Mee 4mo
julieclair @Nutmegnc Which only goes to show how rewarding and educational rabbit holes can be! 🤣 I have never heard of Chun Mee. I‘ll have to look for it! 4mo

My first #litsyteaswap teas are starting to arrive! @Nutmegnc , your selection is well timed: I know white teas are often recommended for when you‘re sick and I‘m still trying to shake this lingering cough. Thank you! 🤗

StolenBookmobile How do I get added to Litsy swaps in the future? 3mo
StolenBookmobile Ok, figured it out haha. How often are swaps done? I didn‘t see this. I‘ll make sure I keep up with Litsy Events too. 3mo
Nutmegnc @StolenBookmobile I will tag you for the next one. I‘m aiming for two more tea swaps this year. Next one will be in a couple months. Other swaps are done in a similar way, with sign up period and then more Info on who and what to swap. Each swap is hosted by different Littens. Litsy events is a good place to start!! 3mo
StolenBookmobile @Nutmegnc thanks!!!!! 3mo

Do you love tea?? Would you like to join the inaugural Litsy tea swap (inspired by @KateReadsYA )? If that sounds fun to you, click here to share your information… https://forms.gle/jxipns67JBJeQSZP6 and we‘ll put the kettle on! @chasjjlee #alittlebitobsessedabouttea #spillthelitsytea #litsyteaswap

wanderinglynn Are there more details about what this swap involves? Because the form was sparse on details. Like what‘s all to be included? Only tea? Or other things like bookish items, a book, tea accessories? What about tea preferences (bags vs loose, types of tea, etc.)? Is it open internationally? What are the dates? It says the end of December, which is a little vague, but is there an opening date or is it to be opened when received? 8mo
wanderinglynn Sorry for all the questions, but I want to make sure I understand the expectations before I commit. 8mo
Nutmegnc @wanderinglynn those are excellent questions!! Swap Newby here so I need that feedback!! And thank you!!! only tea should be included. I‘ll add a question about tea preference in terms of bagged or loose. I‘ll add a question for folks to add if they would like to swap international or local. I, for one would do bagged tea either local or international. I would think it‘s okay to open whenever unless you all want to have a United day of tea on Jan1 8mo

Nutmegnc @wanderinglynn I appreciate your comments and questions so much! I‘ve adjusted the form. Let me know if you think I need to add or change anything else. 8mo
Nutmegnc @BkClubCare are you interested? 8mo
BkClubCare @Nutmegnc - aw, thanks for thinking 💭 of me but no, not at this time. Wishing you much fun with this ☕️🫖🎉 8mo
Nutmegnc @chasjjlee thanks for that!! 8mo
maich I didn't receive my match but I sign in 7mo
Nutmegnc @maich Hi there! Your match is on the way via snail mail. It‘s coming from the US so i have no idea how long that usually takes. It‘s out there somewhere trying to make it to you. Wait about a week and let me know if you haven‘t gotten it and I‘ll make sure you get it. 7mo
maich @Nutmegnc I haven't received email with my match adress. I need to send package back to someone. Understand that package ships long I'm ok with that. But I can't find adress or I didn't received it who to send. Hope you understand me. 7mo
Nutmegnc @maich Look for address in mail envelope not email. It‘s coming. 🥰 7mo
maich @Nutmegnc If I understand correct we will received our match adress in envelope to our adress not email? 7mo
Nutmegnc @maich correct 7mo

@KateReadsYA I loved the card but I was so tickled by the tea!! I‘m a HUGE tea fan. Want to start a tea swap??!! And yes to pen pals!! (Special appearance by my favorite 50‘s table). #litsycardswap @LibrarianRyan

Nutmegnc I‘m serious about the tea! If anyone knows of this happening or might be interested in participating! Reply below or tag me! (edited) 8mo
LibrarianRyan I think my mom still has that table. 8mo

It‘s been two years since my sock swap and I‘m still thinking about that bomb tea I got from @mgiroir so I ordered some 😂 and a Taylors sampler lol

Jess_Read_This Oh wow. This looks absolutely amazing. The perfect summer tea! Off to try to find a box for myself now! 2y
blithebuoyant @Jess_Read_This It‘s amazing! My niece drank half of mine when I got it and then my mother lost the rest of it 😂 2y
Jess_Read_This @blithebuoyant Order placed. I saw a smaller box then thought “Nah, I‘m going to need that 100 count box!” I saw the other ingredients in the blend and it looks like everything I love in a fruity tea! I‘m so glad you shared this. Thank you! 2y
See All 9 Comments
blithebuoyant @Jess_Read_This of course! I LOVE fruity teas too! Let me know how you like it! I prefer it iced 2y
Jess_Read_This @blithebuoyant Oh yes! I‘m already looking forward to sitting outside with this as iced tea and a good book. 2y
blithebuoyant @Jess_Read_This if you haven‘t already checked out DAVIDsTEA, they have some AMAZING chunky loose leaf fruity teas! 2y
Jess_Read_This @blithebuoyant oh gosh... 💸💸😂I haven‘t heard of David‘s Teas before. Thanks for the tip! I have a citrus and lavender chunky fruit tea that I‘m almost out of. I think David‘s sounds like the place to go for a replacement blend! 2y
blithebuoyant @Jess_Read_This it was sent to me in my very first swap ever, I think it was #MugLove? I was skeptical because I HATE beets and there were little chunks of beet in it for color but it ended up being lovely lmao 2y
Jess_Read_This @blithebuoyant Now I‘m super curious about the brand. I‘d have the same reaction to seeing chunks of beets in a tea blend (and I like beets lol) Though I bet it makes the tea healthier for us? 2y

“Which tea describes your reading personality?”

Me: (three seconds after meeting someone) “Omg I know the perfect book for you. Have you read...”

post image

this was difficult, because this mug might actually be the size of my head! @dariazeoli my #mondaymorningbeverage is just black tea, but I‘ll probably get a mocha when I get to campus to do work!

dariazeoli I think a mug should be as close to head size as possible 😁 3y
cleoh @dariazeoli I agree 😁😁 3y
