Kusmi Tea Loose Leaf Tea Tin

Just about the chicest tea you can buy. Pavel Michailovitch Kousmichoff got his start at the tender age of 14 (hey, it was a different time,) when he left his rural family farm to apprentice with a tea salesman in St. Petersburg. After years spent blending, infusing, and learning the craft, he received a tiny teahouse as a wedding present... which grew into a veritable Russian institution over the next fifty years. After the revolution in 1917, Kousmichoff shortened its DBA to Kusmi and relocated the business to Paris, where they've been headquartered ever since. History aside, this tea is special. The flavors are delicate, the packaging is beautiful, and it's still quite hard to find... all the makings of a great gift. This is an antioxidant-rich blend of green tea and maté with both lemon and lemongrass. Fun fact: Lady Gaga quit smoking with the Detox blend.
