The company has an interesting history starting in Russia then fleeing to Paris. I'm also a sucker for packaging, so I of course love the sweet little tea tins. Kusmi teas are sold in a few cafes and shops in my area, and the American flagship is here. I will have to make a journey in the near future.
I can't wait to try the other teas in my sampler, and hopefully share a pot with my friend that gave them to me. I am so thankful to her for the gift! It has opened my mind to the possibility of trying other flavored teas, and to delve further into the many varieties offered by Kusmi.
