From Kusmi Tea

Once upon a time…
The tsarevnas, daughters of the tsars, used to journey to the heart of the Imperial Russia for Christmas celebrations. They would go to the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg – the birthplace of Kusmi Tea – where an immense tree would be hung with Christmas decorations. Tsarevna is a Russian blend that takes its inspiration from that time.

Today Kusmi Tea celebrates that 19th century tradition by presenting its limited edition Christmas Tea inspired by that era, a Russian blend of black tea, spices and orange.

Inspired by the magic of the holidays, gold glitter adorns the tin.

Another tea from exchange meeting – and exchanged this one. So, I do not know how old it could be. Hopefully, not so much, but when it is wrapped in foil, I hope it would not be bad.

When brewed, it smells nice. Mostly orange zest and bit of spices. In taste t is similar, but I expected much more pronounced spices. It was like earl grey, but with quite weak base black tea and little bit of spices. Nothing very distinctive. I expected much more stronger tastes. But overall it was nice, mellow tea..

Flavors: Clove, Orange Zest

First thought: Smells nice. Second thought: There are a lot of tiny crumbly bits in this, couldn’t Kusmi have used something a little closer to whole leaf tea? … Okay, I managed not to get any of those in my teacup, that’s a good thing(I made a whole pot of it). Now, the taste. Orange is there, also licorice and anise, but where are the ginger and cinnamon? … Ah, there they are. Just barely. It seems like Kusmi made a chai that needs some extra spices ??

Spicy, very aromatic. Owerpowering. Spicy chai and orange. Cardemmom, cloves, less cinamon. Black tea. Very smooth blend, very cozy. Milk and sugars are a must – Treat it like a chai.

If a Russian Earl Grey and a Chai tea had a baby, this is what they would birth. A smooth tea with spicy notes, an aroma that fills the room like a spiced candle, emitting a rich complex scent. Notes of cinnamon and cardamom are clear, with a back note of orange. This particular product is a regular winter tea for Kusmi. In 2016, to celebrate 150th year of kusmi, it donned a beautiful black and gold caddy, inspired by the tiaras worn by Tsar princesses. In 2017, the caddy is full golden. It’s beautiful, but disappointingly the price has increased from £24.80 in 2016, an the content has decreased from 250g. Bad move Kusmi.

I have a special relationship with Kusmi Tea’s Prince Vlad. It is heaven. It is joy. It is love. The company that makes it is also very generous, and always sends samples of other teas to try. Gift with purchase? Everybody loves that!

This was among the three teas they sent along with my dear Prince Vlad.

The description on the single serving bag (black tea, spices, orange) made me think that this would be close to an Earl Grey. Oh, the error of my thinking.

First sip: No. But maybe I didn’t give this a proper try.

Second sip, followed by a few more consecutive sips: My taste buds are no longer on speaking terms with me.

This reminds me of a rooibos, only more unsettling since I thought I was going to send my mouth on an earl grey journey. Website shows it has licorice. That explains things.
