Plum Deluxe is not just a blog, not just an online tea shop… it’s a community.

Our popular and growing tea of the month club community is full of wonderful, thoughtful, creative individuals. We’re forever grateful for them, and we’re taking time each month to feature them. Take a look at their favorite moments (see previous members here).

And if you’re not in our club, please, join us!


Name: Kari Norman

Where do you live? Vancouver, WA

What’s your favorite Plum Deluxe blend, and why?

Oregon Breakfast Tea…because it has such a smooth, nutty flavor and is awesome with cream! (But what isn’t, right?!) I’m also a fan of the Fresh Perspectives Green Tea (a previous tea club tea)!

Do you have a tea-time recipe you can share with us?

I don’t, but I’m anxious to try some of the ones shared by other members and PD! I REALLY want to try the cookie butter cake – cuz I LOVE cookie butter.

We’d love to see photos of your favorite tea ware!

Here are my favorite mugs. The Starbucks Guangzhou is a prized possession, because I got it when I adopted my daughter.


Share a special tea memory or moment you’ve had.

Sharing Cuddletime Tea with my daughter Sophia, as well as sitting, looking outside my big picture window, while sipping tea and watching either the sunrise, sunset or rain. I also have a great view of Mt St Helens on a clear day!


Thanks Kari, we’re grateful for having you in our tea community! Looking out the window with a nice cup of tea is a moment that matters, indeed.
