I gave my private stash of this to one of my friends.
Mostly to keep the 1 kg tea law about taking tea into Greenland. Yeah there is a law.
If I take to much tea and get discovered – I get a ticket, the pay-you-stupid-criminal-kind, a warning and people thinking that I smuggle things across the border. And since I travel quite a bit, I don’t ever cross the 1 kg tea law. The security itself is quite tiring!

So, my friend got this.
but I love it, and I have to buy it sometime… It’s one of the better Kusmi-blend.
Green tea and mint. Fresh.

Two lbs of tea doesn’t seem that much… but I suppose when you’re traveling and buying tins it’s not enough. That’s less than 8 kusmi tins.

I agree this is one of Kusmi’s better blends. Then again from the few I’ve had they were pretty good.

If only the bar was at 2 kg!
That would be nearly reasonable =)

Yes, some of the kusmi teas are quite good.
If not, then at least pretty as decoration.

Ricky

16 kusmi tins…. ummm at $20 USD a tin…. $320…. yeah I’d say that would be enough. I didn’t realize Kusmi had such a large selection of tea. At first I thought they only had a dozen or two dozen.

Rijje

They have a lot of teas, also the clean ones like assam.
But I normaly buy my kusmi tea here in town… The spearmint just sell out quickly at the store.

Ricky

Can’t find anywhere except Dean & Deluca in NYC to buy Kusmi. They don’t have a wide selection either =( Luckily they ship within the US =]

Bio

Many things can be said about me, but I rather not go into details… Other than the facts that: Yes, I am from Greenland (Yeah, it’s totaly awesome!) and I love my books, cats and tea.

I love all kinds of tea, but must confess a greater love towards the Da Hong Pao and a deep hatred for Ceylon and Pickwick. (Yes, I am aware that Ceylon is area). Sorry, It’s not them, it’s me.
Other than that I love the greens, the whites and the blacks (and all of the things in the middle) evenly.

Rating system – I love the smileyrate here on steepster, so I’ll just follow that. That’s 1 point for the worst tea in the history of man, and 100 point for some of the best tea… note that I usually rate high because I am a optimist and love all things tea.
