Kusmi Tea

Kusmi Tea was founded in Paris more than 140 years ago, but it's new to me.  I picked up a sampler box at the St. Lawrence Market awhile back and now I'm a fan.

Great quality. 

For starters, the beautiful little muslin pouches are a nice touch and handy to reuse. 

There's a great selection in the sampler box of green tea, black tea, and darjeeling.

It feels quite indulgent to steal a few minutes to sit back and enjoy the colour and aromas.  An exotic escape right at my desk.

There's no way to pick a favourite, they're all so unique, and its fun to pick something out to match my mood or the weather:

Anastasia:  Bergamot, lemon and orange blossom
Bouquet of Flowers No. 108:  Bergamot, citris fruits, and flowers
Darjeeling No. 37:  subtle tea from India
Green Darjeeling :  from the Arya garden
Sweet Love:  Black tea, guarana, spices and pink pepper
Prince Vladimir:  Citrus fruits, vanilla and spices
Detox:  Mate, green tea and lemon grass
Kashmir Tchai:  Black tea and spices
St. Petersburg:  Citrus fruits, red fruits and caramel
Be Cool:  Liquorice and peppermint (caffeine free)
Russian Morning No. 24:  Breakfast black tea
Spearmint green tea:  with nanah mint leaves
