Kusmi Tea is one of my favorite tea brands—I’m particularly passionate about their Chocolat Epices and St. Petersburg blends. And now Kusmi is collaborating with designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, who has created limited-edition packaging for the company’s tea tins to coincide with an exhibition of his work at the Grand Palais in Paris.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, “The tins for Kusmi’s Anastasia and Prince Wladimir tea varieties will be the first to get their Gaultier stripes, with three others slated for a makeover during the year. Products will be sold in Kusmi Tea stores as well as at the boutique in the Grand Palais.”
I always enjoy seeing Gaultier’s limited-edition designs for his Gaultier Classique perfume, and this new collaboration features his signature tattoo motifs and sailor-shirt stripes.

I’ve always wondered if these teas were any good. I’m going to have to give them a try now.
T, yes, they are really good! My favorite tea brands are Palais des Thes, Harneys, and Kusmi. Kusmi has a cute shop in Manhattan but isn’t hard to find online, either.
