It’s that time of year we love to love!
The air is cooler, and CRISPER, just like the beautiful apples being plucked from tree branches.
Leaves are calling attention to their seemingly-constant changing colors, and flip flops and sandals are finding their way to the back of the closet for the annual hibernation.
Picnics and grilling out are exchanged for campfires and oven roasting, and our iced coffee habit is turning into a hunt for favorite warm beverages.
Which brings us to this happy announcement: the #HLBTea Swap is BACK!
If by chance you’re not familiar, our tea swap is a super simple way to celebrate the HLB community while sharing your love of tea!
The steps are oh-so-simple:
Fill out the form before October 13.
Receive an email with your match.
Send two bags* of tea to a community member.
Receive two bags of tea from another community member.
*We love the 2 bags-o-tea idea because 1 forever stamp usually does the trick [as long as you keep the total weight of the envelope one ounce or less] of getting it across the USA. [though we do offer matches for our international friends, too!]
We know many of you love tea and want to share your love with others. We designed the tea exchange so that those of us who love tea can share our favorites and try new-to-us teas, too.
When you sign up for the exchange, you will be paired with another tea lover whom you will send two of your favorite tea bags. A different swapper will have your name and send you two tea bags as well; connecting you with TWO fellow community members through the exchange.
How do you sign up?
Fill out this participation form to get started! Even if you signed up for the last exchange, you need to sign up again for this one if you want to participate. You will have until Friday October 13th to sign up.
You will get your match in your email before October 16. Then, find two bags of tea – either two of the same, or two different flavors – and mail them to your match. [as we mentioned above, we’ve sent two tea bags in a normal business sized envelope and one forever stamp was enough!] You will have until November 1 to send out your tea.
Plain and simple. Send tea. Get tea. It might be fun to include your newly discovered teas in a blog post, but it is not required. If you are on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, you can post about the exchange using hashtag #HLBtea. We love to see photos of how you are enjoying the experience!
Once you sign up, you can also grab yourself this badge [the code for the image is under the image below] and encourage others to sign up, too! Our swaps and other events are made awesome by the COMMUNITY and we’d love if you helped spread the word and invite your blogging friends and followers to join us. To show our appreciation, for every person who signs up for the swap mentioning you referred them in the “How did you learn about #HLBTea swap?” question, you’ll receive a bonus tea gift from Team HLB. Thanks for sharing!
