This tea is a staple of my daily life. I have many teas that I consider better, but for an easy to drink, caffeinated punch in the mornings – this is what I turn to. The tea is fruity, smells great, and is easy to drink.

Flavors: Berries

Here’s one Nicole sent a while back! thank you so much! I think I’ve tried a couple teas from Kusmi to know I’m not really a fan of their black tea base flavor. Just not to my tastes! This one should be my favorite though, since it has a subtle bergamot and subtle raspberry. I could have used more flavor though… it would have distracted from the base. But I like the flavor that is there. Everything is so mild in this cup, even at just boiled and steeped for four minutes. I can’t love every tea I guess! But this is the best of the few Kusmi I’ve tried.

Tastes like a warm candied (caramel) apple, minus the sugar. I quite enjoy it, though it doesn’t feel like I’m drinking tea.

A couple of friends from NYC came down to visit and brought the Kusmi Russian Samplers down with them, along with DTs Mint Chocolate.

This one definitely tastes like a caramel black tea, mildly fruity (berries) and just a tad of floral taste.

I did not expect to like this one. For one — caramel? In tea? Come on now. But you know what? It totally works. This is a wonderful blend. There is a slight hint of fruit (which usually I don’t care for) and it completely works with the flavors. I was so pleasantly surprised! Resteeping made it lose it’s flavor, understandably. This is another winner from my Kusmi Essentials box! I recommend picking one of those up, fellow tea drinkers. I’m a new Kusmi convert.

A very distinctive Kusmi tea. It tastes a little like candy shop, but not in a nasty synthetic way! Sweet and fruity, but full-flavoured. Not an everyday tea, but a very good one.

Nice bright fruit flavor mellowed by sweet caramel. Reminds me of the Tower of London blend by Harney and Sons.
