Originally featured in our 2018 holiday calendar, this tea was such a hit that we decided to keep it in our permanent lineup.  It’s a chocolate chestnut blend with a splash of something unexpected…banana.  Ever notice how the addition of banana can really add something lovely (think banana bread, banana splits…).

This blend is not just a great herbal tea but a wonderful conversation starter and the perfect relaxation accompaniment.

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.

Tea Maker's Notes

You might be as surprised as I was to see banana in a tea - but it's just one of those flavor things that works really, really well! It reminds me more of creamy chocolate chestnuts than banana, actually.

Bread bread in a tea cup!

This is one of my favorite evening teas. It is just like having banana bread in tea form. I love it!

A great banana tea, but nothing really like 'banana bread'.

I really wanted to try this - I heard great things about it. Featuring a honeybush base with chocolate, cinnamon, apple with banana and chestnut flavors. The base seems more to me like rooibos here. The flavor isn't what I expect! I'm mainly tasting hints of banana and cocoa - but the cocoa could really be chestnut... I can't say I really know what chestnut tastes like. I'm glad the apple isn't more noticeable... that would be odd in a "banana bread" tea anyway. Overall, this just isn't as special as I wished. The flavor is too light and thin and the apple might be contributing a lightness to it... if I hear "bread" I think starchy, strong, heavy. This tea is not that. The banana seems almost like a candy. As a banana tea, it's good enough! Maybe a name change would make this tea more understandable to me. Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 14 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // just boiled // 6 minute steep
