Kusmi Tea Will Open First New York Store

Kusmi Tea Will Open First New York Store

The brand of tea that Lady Gaga turned to when she wanted to kick ciggies has signed a lease at 1037 Third Avenue near 62nd Street, according to brokers Faith Hope Consolo and Joseph Aquino of Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Retail Group. Despite having grossed $11 million in revenue last year, Kusmi (which grew out of a Russian company founded in 1867 and is now based in Paris) didn’t have a New York flagship till now (though its Russian, Chinese, and Japanese blends have been available at Zabar’s and Dean & Deluca). Time to dust off the samovar.
