Tea is in The Bag, Celebrating Kusmi Tea First US Store Opening with This Week's Contest

We love books and you love cookbooks as we all know from our now weekly contests.

Life gets boring if you don't mix it up once in a while.

After offering a Still Week-End in Armagnac a couple weeks ago, our new contest celebrates Kusmi Tea First US Store Opening with Tea Is In The Bag Contest.

Kusmi Tea was started some 140 years ago in St Petersburg (Russia not Florida) and purchased by the Orebi brothers of Paris in 2003. They had the flair to rejuvenate the brand just in time to ride the health wave associated with green tea.

They opened their first US store in New York on July 1st, 2010.

I asked them to share a little of the Kusmi Tea magic with this week's contest.

What will your teapot get if you win?

Two prizes are on the table.

Top Prize (1er prix):

A Kusmi Cabas Bag and a Box of Kusmi Tea Essentials (24 enveloped tea bags of 12 different teas)


Consolation Prize (for Runner Up):

A Box of Prince Vladimir Tea (4,4 Oz)

(A blend of Chinese black tea flavored with citrus, vanilla, and spices; created in 1888)


Now for the questions:

What other name do the Chinese use for Black Tea?

Why is it that Green Tea offers health benefits that other teas don't?

Send your answers to info [at] njconcierges [dot] com

We must receive all entries by 12 Noon (US Eastern Time) on Monday, July 19, 2010.

Please note that this contest is limited to the US.
