[Personal & Etc.] Kusmi Tea Designs

So, if you know me, you would know that I am pretty damn knowledgeable about lots of stuff. Like, knowledgeable to the point that I should probably try to earn some money out of it, because I “wasting” fuckloads of time learning and reading about them… my obsessions.

One of my obsessions is tea.

Some advertisement for luxury products pop out and I see a bag design like this:

I am a bit sorry that I didn’t screenshot the actual AD. But believe me, I saw it.

Oh, and the retailer is called “LUISAVIAROMA” or something like that.

Well, hmm. I’ve seen that design somewhere. Not because it says Detox and Tea (which is a pretty common word, I suppose)… but because I window shop way too often that I recognize certain blends and designs of several tea companies.

And I’ve seen that design. It’s Kusmi.

From Kusmi, a French tea company whose founder was from Russia (thus the Russian inspired blends and designs). I’ve personally tried their Russian samplers.

It’s the same colourway. Goddamnit it’s the same logo too!

In curiosity I’ve checked for more.

More Kusmi-inspired designs. And yes, “Euphoria” also exists… but not in that colourway.

I can only hope this “Leo Studio” paid Kusmi for the design. Or is it supposed to be a “creative license” thing? Oh dunno. But hey, shit I notice because I have lots of obsessions. Yay.
