You’ve probably heard tea described as a ‘hug in a mug’ – but you won’t find tea that feels more like a hug than our cinnamon apple spice tea. Hints of spice with fresh apple and cinnamon with a fresh black tea will help you feel warmed, supported, and present in the moment. Think of it like apple cinnamon tea that tastes like a warm slice of mom’s coffee cake in a cup!

About the Tea Maker
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 Plum Deluxe tea drinker. 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 Plum Deluxe customers.
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.

An Amazing Tea!
This was the first PD tea I tried, and it got me hooked! It’s exactly what an autumn tea should be, and I look forward to a nice cup (or two…or three) each morning. Definitely high enough quality for a second seep.
A great tea for pairing
I purchased a tea flight of this blend. When I first opened the bag and took in the aroma, I thought of apple strudel, apple pie, pie a la mode and was sure this would be a winner. I steeped my first cup and took a sip. The flavor was so soft it left me bit disappointed. Decided I would add some creamer to see if that would bring out the flavors some but it didn't help. When I eat an apple I love to have sliced cheese with it. So I decided to have another cup with my lunch of a grilled cheese sandwich. Wow, that pairing was the ticket. For the autumn and winter months I love grilled cheese sandwiches so I will be purchasing a bag of this tea to be ready for the next cheese dish!
My favorite apple tea!
Such rich, sweet apple flavor! Such warm, gentle spice!! THIS is my ultimate fall tea, but you KNOW I'm drinking this all year round - it really is a hug in a hug!
I found the flavors to be a little too subtle for what I was hoping for. Perhaps I'm a little too excited for Fall and was expecting more spice. It was actually more flavorful to me iced. Still a nice warming tea though.
Delicious! Great for cool fall mornings or evenings. Like a hug in a mug.
