Tea of the Week : Kusmi Tea Anastasia

Kusmi Tea was established in St Petersburg in 1867. In 1917, the tea company moved from London to Paris where it’s headquarters remain even today.

The Kusmi Tea Anastasia Blend is my current favourite tea:

Anastasia is a black tea blend of Ceylon and China teas with essences of bergamot, lemon and orange flowers.

This is a wonderfully fragrant tea in which all the ingredients come alive in my cup. I can actually single out the scent of each note.

This is a sunny tea for me. It’s like being sat on a veranda surrounded gorgeous aromas. It is not the smoothest tea blend that I have gulped down but the breezy astringency works well to rouse me on gloomy mornings.

I hope that you like my tea cup?

It is from the Wedgwood Polka Dot Tea Story collection and is made of fine bone china.
