Kumsi specialist teas from Russia to buy online
Does that seem a little fanciful? Maybe but that’s the way I see these delicious teas. The company that produces these teas started their business in 1867 – exactly fifty years before the Russian Revolution – in St. Petersburg, Russia. As a designer,I have to admit that I have bought these teas simply because of the gorgeous packaging only to discover on delivery just how special they are as a beverage. And then there’s this history and romance…
You see, the company was founded by Pavel Kousmichoff who represented a true rags to riches story. As a poor peasant boy he was apprenticed to a tea blender and succeeded so well that he ran his own tea houses and was able to start the Kumsi empire. All the aristocracy, including the ill-fated Royal Family were his clients. As well as being a businessman he was also something of a visionary as he moved his business to Paris and his family out of the country just before the Russian Revolution.
This story alone makes these teas ideal for the tea drinker of discernment but consider the beverages themselves – carefully blended and flavored with bergamot, orange blossom, spices, flowers, fruits and other ingredients which make the mouth water just thinking about them.
These teas are shipped worldwide and a great advantage is that you can, if you wish, set up regular deliveries. This makes a wonderful treat for you and the family or a perfect, ongoing gift with a wonderful backstory.
