The legacy of 150 years is not built overnight. Rather it takes hard work, perseverance and determination of many people with consistent efforts for the growth of the company. A small child of 14 years who left home to find employment and served tea at the teahouse became the owner of his first teahouse after his marriage to Alexandra. This is how in 1867, first P.M. Kousmichoff teahouse started and soon with consistent efforts and hard work, he owned 11 teahouses by 1901 and became the third largest company in Russia. After the death of P.M Kousmichoff, his son took over the business and opened around 51 teahouses in major cities of Russia. But, the revolution broke out in Russia which led Viatcheslav to flee away to Paris and he started his business opening many offices in New York, Hamburg, and Constantin, but finally he settled in Berlin. The company suffered tremendously in war zones and Viatcheslav died soon after Second World War in 1946. His son Constantin took over the business. However, he did not have the flair with numbers like his ancestors and the company became bankrupt in 1972. The company kept selling tea, but profits were uneven until 2003 when Orebi brothers took over the company and took up the opportunity to make it big and international all over again.
