One of our favorite herbal teas is honeybush, a naturally sweet and somewhat earthy ingredient that is perfect for a calming cuppa. After extensive recipe testing we’ve come up with a caffeine free cuppa that has that somewhat buttery feel and a sweet creamy taste, just like shortbread (but without any sugar or butter, of course). We take fresh honeybush tea paired with cocoa peel and blackberry leaf to give that wonderful richness. It’s a simple tea blend with intriguing depth and flavor – it’s our new staff favorite.

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 blend
This is a delightful tea blend. I confess, I'm all about strong, black teas. My favorites are Earl Greys and Chais. But, I bought this one for family members that can't have caffeine. They kept saying how delicious it was, so I tried it. Wow! Oh, so good. Had to order more to have on hand. It tastes sweet, but it's not. So much like your favorite shortbread cookie. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
Complete satisfaction in my mug!
I was hesitant to try this blend. I was expecting it to be just another sweet dessert tea. Boy was I shocked! The aroma of the tea in the pouch is intoxicating and rich. Brewed and sipping in the cup was when the surprise hit. This is not a sweet flavor tea but a rich, satisfying and filling flavor. Too often I will make a cup of tea when I have a craving for a treat and find myself still wanting more. This tea is the one that curbs that desire. All that are trying to get through the day without the extra munching should give this one a try.
