Kusmi Sailor Box by Jean Paul Gaultier

Kusmi Sailor Box by Jean Paul Gaultier

Love this!! Kusmi’s collaborative efforts just keep getting better and better. This is zooming to the top of my holiday covet list (test, test, test to see if my mother does in fact read everything I write like she claims…). The above box, which houses 42 assorted tea bags, is a Jean Paul Gaultier-designed ode to sailors with its stripes and red pompom. I just can’t get over how adorable it is! And the best part is even without the cute box, as a total Tea Snob, I can tell you that Kusmi products speak for themselves. It’s kind of an oddball collaboration, but it works. Kusmi, despite being such a well-established traditional tea brand, has embraced JPG’s signature humor and it has made for a slew of great finds. Among the tea bags in this set are two of my favorites: BB Detox and Detox, both from Kusmi’s wellness line. They also have more traditional teas in the mix. I can’t think of a more perfect hostess or holiday gift, or even for something like a bridal shower, this is great. Ditto as a present for anyone on a diet (most of the time when we think we’re hungry, we’re actually just thirsty, which is why I like to always have tea near my computer) or someone trying to cut out coffee. Kusmi Sailor Box available at Kusmi Tea for $59.
