Kusmi Tea Storms New York City

Kusmi Tea has opened a tea shop at 3rd Avenue and 61st Street in Manhattan. Russian by origin, transported through Paris (about 100 years ago), and now in New York.

The shop is stocked with Kusmi’s traditional bergamot and orange-scented Russian-style black teas, other flavored teas (both green and black), traditional unflavored teas, herbals and other infusions. Tea come loose in tins and as full leaf in muslin sachets.

I hope the store makes it. Tea shops come and go. The brand is relatively unknown here in the states.
