I LOVE this tea!!!! It’s definitely my favorite from Kusmi, so I was sad to learn that it has been discontinued! Apparently it was not well-liked by customers (which now I can see based on the reviews from this site), but I’m devastated. The mix of black teas was so interesting and took some getting used to, but it ended up being perfect for cold, snowy evenings. I would prepare it using my samovar, which just made the whole experience wonderful. Too bad I can’t get it anywhere, now.
This blend can do very no wrong. Incredibly fragrant hot, refreshing iced. (Ideal hot, to be honest.) Smells amazing; tastes exactly like it smells. It’s easy to brew without messing up.
The chocolate actually does come through. I will say that some might find it bitter or a little overwhelming.
Flavors: Chocolate, Orange
Out of their Earl Grey influenced teas, I liked this one the best. Easy everyday, early morning wake up tea! Just perfect for the spring that’s coming soon (it’s less than a month away!!) It’s just a hint of floral, kind of creamy tasting. Might try to have it iced. On the fence of ordering again. Glad I tried it!!!
I grew up on Good Earth Sweet & Spicy. My parents probably helped bring it outside of California when it first came from the Good Earth restaurant chain back in the 80’s This tea didn’t stand out for me since it reminds me of a dulled out orange spiced tea a la Good Earth Sweet & Spciy. It’s just ok to me, maybe since I get spice overload when I make my own chai, too.
I kind of like Earl Grey. I got this included in the Russian sampler set. For being a Kusmi tea, I honestly didn’t think it tasted much different from any other Earl Grey I’ve had. Their other selection which are Earl Greyish stood out. Had no problem drinking it, but won’t rebuy.
Hmmm. I thought I liked this over the BB Detox, but it’s the other way around. For sure. Perhaps I haven’t had a mate’ before. The smell made me immediately think I walked into a wood shop—-when I went to buy cedar planks for my garden. Or just like the candles that I love with cedar fragrance. Am I drinking wood?? The taste was smooth at least—-cedar and lemongrass….it was a very genuine wood smell/taste. Just not my thing. It will be difficult to finish my tin—I will have others try it when they come over….maybe find a taker. My only disappointment from Kusmi. This is for mate lovers only
Flavors: Cedar, Green, Lemongrass
I had this in the sachet—-I only added a little honey. It is nice. Not really strong grapefruit comes through. I try to compare this to their Detox, which should have more lemon notes and I thought I liked better. I like this tea, but would not be first choice for enjoyment. I don’t seem to like lemongrassy things as I think I would. Too dry and grassy (duh) , I like my fruit juicy and acidic apparently….
Flavors: Grapefruit, Green, Lemongrass
When I drink this tea, I want baklava. One of the baklava recipes I made strictly used orange blossom. This tea would of been perfection with it. This tea was meant to enjoy with a sweet. It’s good on its own, a nice balance of flavoring, good black tea base. Seriously, make and purchase baklava, and brew a pot of this tea, and enjoy.
I have a thing for strawberry teas. I am sure I have a bunch of past reviews on teas with this flavoring.
This tea seemed promising for me, green tea + summery berry sweetness. I got this to strictly make iced tea with. The green tea base was just ok. It’s Chinese green, and it’s very mellow. The green tea base with the strawberry flavoring was strange to me. Maybe since I am more used to berries with black tea, that’s why? I will have no problem drinking this down, but I don’t think I would buy again.
Flavors: Citrus, Spices
I received this box of Kusmi Russian Morning teabags from my parents. The first two times I tried it, I didn’t like it — it was too smoky and not smooth enough for me. The smell of the tea before brewing is also pretty offputting because of how dark and bitter it seems. I’m surprised I gave it a third try, but I’m glad I did — this time it turned out much smoother and I can see why others like it. I don’t think I’ll buy more of this tea because there are others I prefer, but I would have this if I were in a restaurant or at a friend’s house.
I just received this tea today and i have been craving it for quite some time. I must say it’s quite nice to see those silver needles scattered among the black tea leaves. As you open the tin, the smoky aroma hits you and if you pay a little attention you’ll immediately feel a citrus-spice vibe going on. Like some lemons with cinnamon and a bit of cloves. I love that this aroma keeps up as the leaves are steeped unlike most blends that have nothing to do with the aromas before steeping. It’s not too smoky nor is it too tangy. Just a perfect combination with earthy and woody undertones and a subtle spicy kick to it as you drink it. If you can still find it, as i did…i truly recommend getting it because it’s an awesome blend.
Flavors: Bergamot, Cinnamon, Citrus Fruits, Cloves, Dark Wood, Earth, Lemon Zest, Smoke
