Looking for something to keep you warm this season? Look no further than Plum Deluxe, a line of organic loose-leaf tea. The tea company was founded by Andy Hayes as a tribute to his mother; she lost a six-year battle with breast cancer but never failed to enjoy the little things in life–like a cup of tea.
Plum Deluxe mixes have been hand-blended in small batches in Portland; they are organic, non-gmo and free of chemicals and sulfites, and both caffeinated and caffeine-free options are available. And the attention to detail and fine ingredients is apparent in the taste of each taste blend. Plum Deluxe’s Earl Grey is the perfect way to start the morning while the Peaches N Dreams oolong tea is fruity and a lovely way to kick up the late afternoon. The Cuddletime Sleepy tea is super-calming for a pre-bedtime sip. Plum Deluxe also dishes up decadent dessert teas like coconut macaroon and creme caramel that you can linger over at the close of a dinner party.
Plum Deluxe’s most popular offering is the tea of the month club. For $10 per month, subscribers receive one ounce of a custom seasonally-perfect artisan tea made just for the club, as well as a second tea sample. (Subscribers also enjoy access to a robust and supportive private tea lover’s community, tea-inspired recipes, discounts on extra teas and supplies, along with surprise gifts and treats throughout the year.)
