drank Petrushka by Kusmi Tea
1946 tasting notes

I picked up a big tin of this tea at the Kusmi shop in NYC before I left. Yes, I have officially moved away from New York, and all of its lovely tea shops. It’s definitely a bit sad but I am moving on.

I bought a whole large tin of this tea because it was not included in their Russian sampler collection but I very much wanted to try it, since it included almonds and rose as two main flavors. I do not have optimal brewing conditions here at my parents’ house, but I can tell I will definitely enjoy this tea a lot when brewed properly. I definitely get light almond and rose, with a bit of orange. A very pleasant blend.

How many tea shops are there in NYC?!
I’m thinking about the dozen or so in Toronto… I can only imagine what the big apple is like! SIGHS

I understand how you feel Dinosara as I am moving from Paris in one week.
Curiously we don’t have this tea available in France whereas Kusmi is a French brand

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
