On Wednesday evening I was invited along by Birchbox to an event full of beautifying and detox tea in Marylebone High Street. One of Birchbox’s lifestyle brands Kusmi Tea had opened up their shop for us all to enjoy a lovely evening of manicures, mini massages, detox teas and delicious cakes!
Kusmi Tea is a well-known brand in Paris and they have just opened their first shop in the UK a short while ago. The prestigious tea brand creates blends of black teas, green teas infusions all presented in colourful tins. As soon as we walked in the store I was surrounded funnily enough by tea! I was amazed by all the varieties and concoctions they have created. I am a big fan of fruit teas rather than normal tea so this was my heaven.
First stop was sampling the latest Detox tea, it’s called BB Detox and just like BB cream, its an all-in-one beauty beverage. Taking after the craze for BB creams the tea is full of detox ingredients; green tea, mate and a hint of grapefruit to help keep you looking beautiful on the inside and out. It gets rid of toxins and protects and moisturises the skin, not to mention it tasted great. I tried it as an iced tea, so lovely. It can also be made hot which I sampled later.
Now if you’re wondering what is Birchbox? Well its a box packed with beauty and lifestyle goodies! You can sign up to receive the box each month for £10 plus £2.95 p&p and it will arrive to your door full of samples for you to test out and discover new products to love. If you simply have to have something head to their online shop to buy it full size!
We enjoyed cakes by Patisserie Belle Epoque and I had my nails done by the Pamper Puff Girls, I opted for a coral shade.
One of the Kusmi teas that caught my eye was the Chocolate & Orange mix, Euphoria, it smelt absolutely amazing and gives you a great energy boost. The store in Marylebone also has a cafe at the back so you can pop by and enjoy your favourite tea and a lovely cake.
We came away with a fab goodie bag full of Kusmi and Birchbox treats, what a great evening, thanks Birchbox!
