Kusmi Tea Sweet Love

Kusmi Tea sent a press release offering to let me try their Sweet Love blend, and naturally I said yes, I'd love to try it! With Valentine's Day not too far away, I thought I'd better go ahead and review this tea now so those interested would have plenty of time to order.

Opening the box I expected great things, because I have had a good experience with the few Kusmi Tea blends I have tried in the past. A friend gave me a tin of their Spicy Chocolate Tea a year or so ago, and I rediscovered it recently and it is still terrific.

The bright pink box was packed with their nice muslin tea bags.

Cute graphic on the side, too, but the best thing of all was the wonderful peppery/spicy taste of this tea! Spice notes are what greet you when you open the box, and the blend contains black tea, liquorice root, guarana seed (which is a stimulant, and I'm definitely open to the boost in energy!), pink peppercorn and spices. Best of all, this tea is incredibly sweet tasting, and I observed that it really did keep me from wanting anything else sweet the night I first tried it. It is a wonderful dessert tea. If you're looking for a new blend to try ahead of the month of love, I can highly recommend this one! Go here to find out more about this tea and see Kusmi's other offerings.

OOOOHH! I love sweet teas. I think I'll have to go out and try it too! Love the cute matching pink teacup you used to drink it with, too!

The Sweet Love tea sounds great and your Lady Carlyle teacup is the perfect choice of a romantic cup to serve it in.

I've never tried their tea bags, but I love their Petrushka loose blend.

Sweet Love sounds so enticing, Angela. Thank you for sharing your tasting notes on this special Valentine tea and showing us such a pretty cup. This company has some amazing blends.I had the pleasure of meeting the Kusmi representatives at the Fancy Food Show and sampled several of their teas. Their booth was the most beautiful and colorful display of all. My favorite teas from Kusmi are Troika, Anastasia, and Darjeeling Makaibairi.

Sounds interesting! I love that box, too. (And your teacup!) I'll have to check out the website to see if they've got any decaf tea. Heidi T.

Sounds good and I do love a peppery tea.

Their tea tag would be worth keeping and crafting with.
