When thinking about a great apple flavored herbal tea, we decided to give it a twist by adding a custard apple (cherimoya). This is an Asian fruit (pronounced share-moy-ya) that is more commonly known as a custard because of its taste. Think of a creamy green apple with a simple, clean, not overly sweet finish. It’s the perfect herbal tea for after dinner or a calming pick-me-up.

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.
- apple pieces
- mango nectars
Cherimoya is a creamy tropical fruit reminiscent of flavors like pineapple and banana. This essence could turn out badly to be like perfume, but the base of apple pieces keep it natural-tasting. This tea is wonderful iced and mixed with pineapple and mango nectars. As always, the green rooibos is packed with caffeine-free antioxidants which makes this enjoyable all day long.
