There are three Kusmi Tea locations in New York, and I visited this one on 61st Street and 3rd Ave. There’s one in the Plaza Food Hall and in Bloomingdales.
Every day there’s a sampling of a different tea.
Unlike some other tea shops, all teas are pre-packaged and there isn’t an option to buy loose leaf by the ounce. The smallest metal tins have 4.4 ounces of tea so I opt for the sachets (in muslin bags) if I want to give a new tea a try.
There are tea canisters the sales associate can take off the shelves so you can take a whiff and look at the loose leaf teas they sell.
