If you haven’t had a smoky tea then you’re missing out on a unique experience!  We’ve combined a smoked black tea with hints of walnut, chocolate, and vanilla.  Sometimes smoked teas can be quite forward – we’ve taken a more balanced approach (but this tea is still smoky!).  Consider quality time by the fire sharing good stories as the perfect activity or mindset when sipping this tea.

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

Smoky teas generally aren't my favorite, but our team worked together to craft this gently smoked blend with delicious hints of chocolate and nut. It's very comforting.

"smokey" is not an exaggeration- be warned.

I'm giving this tea a high mark even though I did not enjoy this flavor one bit. Reasons: 1) it is exactly as described. There is no punch-pulling with the smokiness- it's very pronounced. Usually if a blend is labeled "smoky" I can get around it because it's not THAT smoky in reality. Plum Deluxe, you mean what you say and I give you credit for that! 2) It's a well-balanced combination of ingredients with a good mouth-feel- this would be a very satisfying cup if you enjoyed this flavor. It makes me wish I was less sensitive to the smokey taste because even though I'm going to try something else next time, I can recognize a well-made tea when taste it, and this is one for sure.

Campfire flavor

It tasted like a vacation up north in the best way.

Memories in a cup of tea.

I LOVE this tea. I’m a fan of smoky teas, chocolate, and ginger. This tea reminds me of sitting by our campfire in the crisp night air, watching the stars. Conversations around the fire pit, music nearby, the laughter of children playing tag as darkness descends. Memories in a cup of tea.

A Smokey Surprise!

This is an awesome food-pairing tea. Reminiscent of the best campfire-filled summer nights—they’re not kidding when they say “smoked” black tea!

Very smoky

This tea makes me feel like it’s fall outside and I’m smelling campfire smells about to roast s’mores on the fire. Seriously this tea gives me so many comfort feels. Absolutely love it.
