A blend of green tea, mint, and seaweed that restores as it replenishes minerals within the body. The combination of green tea, well-known for its antioxidants, mint, an aid to digestion that also boasts restorative properties, and the goodness of seaweed make this the ideal drink to go with a spa session.
We suggest to enjoy this tea during the afternoon.
Main flavor: Oceanic and mint notes

Another sample from the lovely High Adventure
I turned over the little packet and it read these simple words “Seaweed and teas”
Alrighty than.
I don’t mind seaweed, in fact I like it, because usually when I smell it or taste it in the air it means I am by the sea and the sea is where my heart will always be (truly not trying to be a poet, I promise)
Today, with another hot day in store as well as being socked in with smoke, by the cool sea where salty breezes blow sounds just heavenly.
The website said that this is a restorative tea that is great to sip during a spa session.
Well, not sure if watching Spongebob Squarepants is qualified as a spa session but its as close to a spa session or the ocean as I am gonna get today.
I like the smell of this tea a lot.
It is refreshing or"restorative".
I can smell the salty seaweed and the bright mint.
I can also smell the green tea.
On the first sip, all I can taste is mint, which saddened me some, since I was looking forward to the “Seaweed and Teas”
However, as I let it cool more, I could taste the salty-ness of the seaweed.
This tea is unique, but I like that.
I wonder how it would taste cold-brewed?
Thanks again, High Adventure, for the sample!

This is a queued tasting note.

So, when I placed my Kusmi order I really wasn’t sure what I was looking for. I just knew I wanted new tea from a company I’d yet to order from, and I vaguely was looking for a combination of white, green or mate tea since I don’t have much new on hand for any of those categories. Something in the moment spoke to me about this tea and I impulse bought it. In hind sight, I think it was the fascination of the seaweed?

My first tasting was a cold brew – and honestly? This is a pretty safe, simple flavour profile. It reminds me strongly of Moroccan Mint tea in a lot of ways – same intense spearmint notes and strong vegetal component. Though, while still being VERY vegetal there certainly are more oceanic undertones to this than a typical Moroccan Mint would have. Only negative thing I can really say for this one is that the finish/aftertaste was perhaps a little musty? And even that’s not quite the right word though it’s pretty close to what I’m thinking of.

So yeah, for an impulse purchase I think this was a pretty decent tea. I mean, it’s certainly not mind blowing or overly unique, but I imagine it’ll be safe and consistent and as someone who doesn’t like green tea much anyway those are both good qualities for a blend to have.

This tea has a very strong mint scent. Its taste reflects its scent, being refreshing and minty. However, Algothe is different from any other mint tea I’ve tasted, most probably due to the combination of green tea and seaweed. This combination makes the tea unique and especially rich in flavour. Overall, I find this a delicious, full bodied mint tea.

From the scent of the tea in the sachet, I assumed that Kusmi Algothé was going to be primarily a mint infusion. Not so! The liquor is light peach veering brown, and the taste is much more about the green tea base than about mint. The scent of the spent sachet was a bit fishy (is fish seaweedy? or is seaweedy fish?), so I worried that the taste of the brew would be fishy, too. It is not.

I really like Kusmi’s green tea base (still not sure what it is…) and this is a nice and original blend, which I am happy to have sampled and may acquire a supply of in the future. If I decide to buy Algothé, I’ll probably order a tin, since the Kusmi sachets are rather small—at least compared to the others I’ve seen.

I hate Kusmi sachets. they are small and tea tastes different from loose version. i tried Anastasia in both forms and sachets just ruin the taste


Ah ha! Good to know, boychik—thank you. I was very surprised when I saw the small dimensions of their sachets. Really they are about half the size of those from Harney & Sons, or Adagio, or Wissotsky…! I’ll definitely stick with the tins in the future…

I liked it though the Mint part is quite strong and the algae part tends to add a salty note, better with a pinch of sugar or sweetener of choice in my opinion.

I have varied both the temperature and brewing time i tend to prefer longer times and cooler temperatures for green and white flavored teas.
