“I just wanted to take a minute to tell you that even though I’ve only gotten my second tea today, it meant so much to me. Not only is the tea outstandingly delicious, it’s just so much fun when I go to the mailbox. It’s one of the nicest things that I think I’ve ever had – I look forward to each month.” – Pat, Birmingham Alabama

We purchase all of our ingredients from organic & fair trade vendors.

Using organic ingredients ensures you get fresh flavors, not lingering pesticides, in your tea blends. Buying from fair trade vendors ensures the workers on the farms we buy our tea from are fairly compensated for their hard work.

Plum Deluxe teas have no sulfites, no artificial chemicals, and are non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan..
Every batch of tea is hand-blended and infused with love from Portland, Oregon.

We’re committed to providing you
with only the best.

These are exclusive teas made with premium organic ingredients. The process from testing to final selection of a blend for our monthly tea box is intense. It takes a lot of time and love but it’s worth it. We are committed to bringing you only the highest quality, handcrafted tea blends.

Because of this, our membership is renewed quarterly instead of monthly. This allows us to create just enough of each limited-edition tea for our club members.

Risk free, cancel at any time. You can cancel or change your quarterly membership at any time before the next renewal date. Whether you want to upgrade to two blends a month or need to cancel your subscription for any reason, we’re always here to make sure you’re 100% happy. No questions asked.

“Plum Deluxe is isn’t just a bag of tea in the mail every month. They have created a community surrounding their products. A community that does secret gift exchanges, has honest and thoughtful conversations, shares their latest teaware purchases and a great love, understanding and passion for tea. The positivity surrounding this company is something I’ve always admired and I’m glad I’m a part of it.

“My Sunday morning couldn’t be any better – this tea has got to be the absolute best blend I’ve EVER had! I can’t get over the flavors and how well they work together. All I can say to this is WOW, great stuff, excellent flavors all working together. It’s wonderful!”

Anna Greenway

 

“The smell is AMAZING in these teas! I left them in my room just to scent up the place before I brewed them up. It smells yummy and so sweet! These aren’t ordinary loose tea you can buy from the grocery market, so it’s worth giving Plum Deluxe try!”

“These teas taste really fresh and clean. Nice to wake up to — like a comforting hug first thing in the morning. And the smell is amazing! Seriously, my whole office/bedroom smelled absolutely fabulous. ”

Meet Your Tea Blender

tea sommelier

I’m Andy Hayes, founder of Plum Deluxe and chief tea maker. Please allow me to walk you through the process I use to create the unique tea blends you’ll discover being a member of the Plum Deluxe organic tea of the month club.

While you may be envisioning lab coats and a giant factory with stacks of ingredients and curious equipment, the Plum Deluxe studio in Portland, Oregon is decidedly more low-key.

I start with an intention in mind – a great tea to sip while reading a book, the perfect tea for cheering on a holiday celebration, an ideal tea for serving after a big meal. I draw upon my intuition and years of experience to blend up 2 or 3 different “test teas.”

Using ingredients from around the world, our flavors are often informed by our love for the Pacific Northwest. Examples of this can be seen in our limited-edition Portland Rose City Chai and the best-selling Oregon Breakfast Black Tea.

Next I steep, sip, review, adjust, repeat. Teas that pass muster often go out to a small group of “tea testers” for further evaluation. Only the best teas are hand-blended in larger batches for our monthly tea subscription box members.

We are a small, specialized, family owned-and-operated business. You have my promise that everything we make is blended with love, positive intentions, and so much gratitude for you, our Plum Deluxe customer.

FAQS

What’s inside each monthly shipment?

Depending on your plan, each organic tea of the month club shipment contains approximately 1-2 oz of tea as well as sprinkles of gratitude and affection for being a Plum Deluxe customer. We also include our “surprise scoop” of another sample tea, as well as gifts and surprises. Links to access online information on brewing instructions and recommended uses for the tea and recipes are also provided.

I’m totally new to tea but curious about the creative aspects of your blends. Is this for me?

Yes, we’d love to introduce you to the world of high quality, loose leaf tea. Our tea community is friendly and inviting, and we aim to answer all questions posted in the private Facebook group promptly – consider our tea experience a big hug welcoming you into tea enjoyment.

Why do I have to signup for 3 months of tea? Can I order a sample or just a small one-off order of tea?

We understand your commitment issues. That’s why we’ve kept our monthly subscription prices low to help make it easy for you to take a leap of faith. If you just want to try our teas first, head on over to our online tea shop and pick out something. Treat yourself!

Cute packaging! Can we use the muslin bags as tea bags?

Thanks, you’re cute too! While yes, technically you could safely use the muslin bags for steeping, we do not recommend it because these bags are designed for packaging and transport. Instead we recommend using a mesh strainer/infuser, French press, or paper tea bags. Additional guides & recommendations are available in our community area – you don’t need to be a tea expert to enjoy our teas.

What does it mean for tea to be organic and fair trade?

We take our tea ingredients seriously – it really is a life or death matter! Our organic teas are better for you as they are free of pesticide and GMO products. Organic teas are also better for the environment as they are not harvested with harsh chemicals or fertilizers. Fair Trade means that we only work with vendors who honor a fair price for products, fair wages and safe working conditions to the workers who harvest our ingredients. Fair Trade sustains the world’s ecology and supports the communities in small villages where tea provides a vital economy. It’s a good thing.

Are most of your teas caffeinated or caffeine-free?

You can choose for caffeine or no caffeine in your subscription signup – we don’t judge. And if later on in the year, you change your mind and want to change your plan, no problem. And don’t forget, in our private Facebook group, you can suggest and vote to influence what tea blends are included in the next shipment.

I have an allergy to a particular herb – can I get it excluded from my shipment?

Yes, once you have subscribed please email us and let us know more about your allergy – we can mark it down on your profile so you can enjoy your tea subscription without health threats. However, we use a single processing facility for all teas so we cannot guarantee prevention of cross-contamination; if your allergy is severe or life-threatening, please check in with us before you purchase. If we offer you an alternative tea to avoid an allergy, it will be from our signature selections, which in time could mean you receive a duplicate tea.

Speaking of which, will I get shipped duplicate teas?

If you have an allergy or other tea preference in your profile, it is possible to get a duplicate tea throughout the year. We try to keep this to a minimum, although some customers have a specific tea on profile with us that they prefer, so be sure to be in touch with us so we can make sure you have the best tea experience.

When will I get my teas? How are the teas shipped?

We know that feeling of rushing out in your robe each morning to meet the mail delivery, waiting on pins and needles anxiously for your delicious teas to arrive. We currently ship via USPS First Class Mail. Teas are usually mailed by the 10th of each month.

How do I get more of a tea blend that I really loved?

Yes, our tea is pretty awesome, thank you. Most of our teas are limited-edition, as we hand-blend each batch and at times use ingredients we can’t get large quantities of. We offer subscribers the opportunity to purchase additional tea depending on interest from the community – check in the private Facebook group for details. On occasions, a limited-edition blend “graduates” to become one of our regularly-available signature blends, which we usually announce with trumpets, fanfare, and a big tea party.

When do I get billed?

Recurring subscriptions are billed in regular 3 month increments from your initial purchase date. Nobody likes money surprises – unless they’re a winning lottery ticket so if you ever have questions about your renewal, please just email us.

Do you ship internationally?

Unfortunately due to our current production capacity, we are only able to ship to the United States and Canada. For Canadian purchases, please use this Canadian shipping order form – we offer the 1 tea/month plan for US$17/month. If you’d like to be notified when we begin to ship to your country, click here to add yourself to our international waitlist. Until then, please come to Portland, Oregon for a visit and we’ll hand deliver with a smile!

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

Plum Deluxe teas are blended by hand and we only make enough of each batch to fulfill current demand, which is why we work on pre-order basis. Due to the exacting and very personal nature of our specialty blends, we cannot offer refunds or exchanges on the tea that we sell nor can we offer refunds on organic tea of the month club subscription payments. If you find that you get a monthly tea box shipment that isn’t well, your cup of tea, we ask that you pass it along to a friend who will enjoy it. Then share your feedback with us so we can continue to improve our product.

Do you do custom tea blends for parties, weddings, events, restaurants, hotels, etc.?

Yes, we’d love to – custom blends are our specialty and often the life of the party. Depending on your needs, we can also arrange for private label or custom packaging. Consulting fees & minimum order amounts apply for custom blends – learn more here.
