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.

I love this tea! The sample led me straight to order 3 (thanks for the discount on multiple, PD), and after serving to my aunt and cousin, I'm down to just my one because they beat me out of the other two. My aunt, who just had to give up caffeine, especially delighted in this decaf yumfest.
For a rooibos blend, this is a tasty and warming cuppa. The aroma is lovely. It lacks the backbone that I prefer (I like black tea best) but for folks avoiding caffeine this is a very pleasant choice. Nice toasty buttery notes.
I haven't yet tried this tea, but given the ingredients and the quality I've come to expect from Plum Deluxe, I know I'm going to love it. God bless...
I bought this tea because I was craving butter and can’t have dairy anymore. What I got was a new tea favorite! This is a splendid tea with rich flavor. Sweet yet not overly sweet. Very well balanced. My favorite for afternoon tea.
This tea tastes exactly like it sounds! Like freshly baked buttery shortbread that my mom used to make me. Love it so much!
