Kusmi is having free shipping until Mother’s Day and I’m thinking of buying something…is it worth it? Or is it just tea in a fancy looking tin? Any kinds you’d recommend?

I have not tried it but my best advice until others chime in is to refer you to this:

I agree that you should look at some of the teas on here at the link that Azzrian posted, but in general the Kusmi teas I have tried have been very, very well done. The Caramel is particularly a favorite among many Steepsterites, and I’ve enjoyed that one as well as the Red Fruits blend and St. Petersburg.

Caramel and Four Red Fruits are very, very good. I have a whole bunch of the Cinnamon and it is also a very amazing tea.

I am not crazy for them. they are ubiquitous round my parts, and the tins are very pretty indeed but none of their teas (and I keep trying) has ever really wowed me. Maybe unfairly, dunno, but I file them on the gimmicky tea-meant-for-presents category. ( a bit like fauchon as well. name and image)

My favorite Kusmi tea is St. Petersburg. If you like flavored blacks such as Harney’s Paris, you would probably like St. Petersburg. The tins hold more than 4 oz. of tea, which can last a long time.

I’ve tried Caramel as well; I think it’s OK but doesn’t quite live up to the hype.
