“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 G

Because every day is a special occasion.

We believe life is all about meaningful connections and creating moments that matter. Treat yourself to the simple
luxuries that remind you that today (and every day) is worth savoring.
 

“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 and making moments that matter. The positivity surrounding this company is something I’ve always admired and I’m glad I’m a part of it.

We are addicted to the marvelous tea blends at Plum Deluxe. He finds just the right blends for the season. Not only do we get marvelous teas he has a wonderful newsletter with all sorts of inspirational and motivational messages, recipes, tea party ideas, etc. Plus it comes in a beautiful purple pacakage. What more could we ask for. :)

- Paulina T

“My purple package arrived and the beautiful warm smell pretty much brought tears to my eyes. So much love for this.
I thought I was getting tea and I’m getting so much more.
Thank you.”

Meet Your Tea Blender

andy

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?

In order to keep our monthly subscription price low, our memberships are quarterly. 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.

Where do you get your teas from?

We take our tea ingredients seriously. Unlike most companies, we source all of our individual ingredients and then put together the recipes and blends all in house. This ensures the highest quality and the most creative, flavorful combinations. Almost all of the ingredients purchased for our teas are backed by USDA-compliant organic certifications. In cases where we work with a non-certified vendor, we are purchasing ingredients that are carefully wildcrafted, ingredients that are from a region of the world that does not have an organic certification program (such as parts of Japan or Taiwan), or from small family farms that cannot yet afford their certification or have not yet completed their certification. In all cases, we very carefully vet our products to ensure their are full of flavor, without any unwanted chemicals, artificial flavors, or genetically modified organisms. Thank you for trusting us to find the freshest, most delicious ingredients that are grown on sustainable, fair trade farms by companies we know, like, and trust.

Are most of your teas caffeinated or caffeine-free?

The bulk of our featured club teas have caffeine, but sometimes we send all subscribers an herbal tea. We are one of the few companies to off a caffeine-free / herbal tea subscription – you can choose no caffeine on the $10/month plan. And if later on in the year, you change your mind and want to change your plan, no problem. You can always email us if you have specific preferences – we always try to accommodate.

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 8th of each month and arrive 2-5 days later.

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 larger quantities of. We offer subscribers the opportunity to purchase additional tea depending on interest from the community and availability of ingredients – check the private member’s website for blends available. On occasions, a limited-edition blend “graduates” to become one of our regularly-available signature blends, which we usually announce with trumpets, fanfare, and of course a big tea party. And don’t forget, in and on the private member’s website, you can rate and review each blend. We use your feedback to determine future blends.

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. If you ever have questions about your renewal, please just email us.

Are your loose leaf teas good on ice?

Wheter you just like iced tea for the hot summer months, or if you drink iced tea year-round, our teas work just fine on ice. Of course, in the summer we take extra care in making the best iced loose leaf blends, but we have many iced tea lovers keeping their cool in our community.

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.

“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 G

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

“We do not remember days, we remember moments.”
– Cesare Pavese
