Tea in my mail

PostCrossing isn't only about postcards (unless you stick to the official site), at least for me it isn't. As soon as I found Postcrossing (PC), I also found the forum. Through the forum I have gotten to know many people and even met several of them at different PC-meetings (around Finland, I haven't made it to any outside Finland yet). I've also traded, swapped and hosted (and won) lotteries with more than just postcards.

My most recent find at the forum is the Tea RR (round robin). Just yesterday I received my first teas. Two envelopes in one day! 

The first, from Netherlands, was for an RR in which each of us in the group sent out 5 different tea bags to each person. (I sent 20 teas bags and will receive 20.)
So far, I've tasted the Canadian Vanilla Maple (left side in baggie) and it is wonderful!! More please!

The 2nd package, from Turkey, was a private swap between me and the other person. We each sent 10 tea bags to the other. From this assortment, I've tasted the echinacea (wrinkled package, lower right) and it was surprisingly good.
