Though Tolstoy doesn’t say what tea Anna Karenina sipped, we like to think it was Kusmi. Founded in 1867 in St. Petersburg, the company’s teas were a favorite of the Russian aristocracy, including the Czar and his family. Now based in Paris, Kusmi continues to produce its century-old blends, such as Prince Vladimir, created in 1888 for Russia’s 900th anniversary, which is accompanied by Troika and Anastasia in this limited edition three-flavor Russian Blends collection. All are packaged in Kusmi’s signature tins, which look as good as their contents taste. It’s almost enough to convince us to give up coffee.
