Kusmi Tea: Paris (1867)
Kusmi tea originated in Russia in 1867 and opened in Paris in 1917. They advertise it as a Parisian tea despite it’s beginnings in Russia. About a year ago Kusmi opened its first boutique store in NYC. For about a year I would pass by the window in a rush and think, I have to go in there next time… Despite the tea enthusiast I am, it’s taken me until today to stop in and purchase some of their tea. I can assure you after just tasting their Jasmine tea, I’ll be back visiting the boutique in no time. If you can’t stop by their store there is an option to order online (which I didn’t realize until today).
