Do you know a tea lover? If they are anything like me, they would love to receive tea as a gift. I enjoy trying out new teas and often wish people would gift me tea variety packs so I could try even more! The latest tea that I’m in love with is Kusmi Tea.
For more than 140 years, Kusmi Tea has been perfecting their perfect blend of tea leaves from China, India and Ceylon to create a variety of flavorful and delicious teas. Offering up teas that every tea drinker will want to sample, Kusmi has a blend that’s just right for you.
Specialty teas include Green, Russian, Black, Decaf & Red, Herbal, and Wellness blends. I was very excited to receive a Kusmi Wellness teas gift set.
From the beautiful packaging to the lovely little muslin tea satchels filled with different fragrant teas, Kusmi has paid attention to every detail.
Wellness teas gift set includes:
- Detox – regenerates the body
- Boost – stimulates the body
- Be Cool – calms and relaxes
- Euphoria – mood booster
- Sweet Love – awaken the senses
- Algotea – replenish minerals in the body
There are six packets of each tea variety for a total of 24 tea bags in this gift set. Each blend has a distinct taste that I have enjoyed. I tried to choose a favorite but I’m not sure I can, they are all delicious in their own way.
Sweet Love is high on the list, it has a spicy bite that lingers on the tongue –so good! Euphoria is another that could be a favorite. There is a something to be said for the luscious blend of chocolate and orange in this tea blend. And with zero calories, it’s a great way to satisfy a chocolate craving!
Usually, when I drink a mug of hot tea, a heaping teaspoon of honey gets added. Mmmm, honey! But I found with Kusmi teas, I didn’t need any honey. The flavor of the tea is so nice that I don’t want the honey to interfere with the taste. Any tea lover would be thilled to receive Kusmi Wellness Teas, or any of the other beautiful gift sets available this holiday season.
About Kusmi Tea
Kusmi respects the traditions that went into first discovering the perfect Russian Blend, but with a new flair on their exclusive specialty teas, this makes Kusmi the top premium tea establishment in the world.
The original master blender of this legendary tea, Pavel Kousmichoff, was the son of a Russian peasant family. He earned his way into the tea business as a delivery man for a small tea boutique. His obvious knack for herbal combinations caught the attention of the store owner, who then taught him the art of tea combinations. By 1917, the Kousmichoff family had opened a total of 51 stores in Russia and Europe. The headquarters moved to France, but after the upset of World War II, the brand was in dire need to be strengthened and renewed.
From Kousmichoff Tea’s Russian roots to its French elegance, Mr. Orebi saw the promising potential in the brand and bought it in 2004. Mr. Orebi promptly went to work on the brand, re-naming it Kusmi Tea, an abbreviation of Kousmichoff, an appealing name to consumers, while respecting the family and all of their efforts. Since then, Kusmi Tea has successfully continued to carry on the important tradition of artisan tea blending while expanding the company’s range of products to meet global market trends.
