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.
Just received this blend yesterday and it smelled so amazing I disregarded the “Has Caffeine” and had up cup as soon as I got home from work. It was so delightful it made me cuss a little. Now to convert all of my coworkers!
Fireside Chat Black Tea
I did not like this tea it was to smoky for me.
My favorite tea so far!! Can't seem to get enough of it!
Smoky without overpowering
I adore this tea. It tastes like sitting next to a bonfire and relaxing in the warmth. I usually take my tea black, but I really like this one with some frothed vanilla cream in it (it kind of tastes like a smore to me, then!). It is nicely complex without being overpowering as smoke flavors can be. So thankful this was added, and will absolutely be a year round favorite of mine!
Deliciously cheery and warming
Fireside Chat reminds me of the aroma of a good pipe with a plummy, rich English cut tobacco in front of a toasty warm fireplace with my slippers on. Hints of smoke without being overpoweringly smoky, rich but subtle flavors of vanilla and toasted nuts make for a very delicious cuppa. Definitely do recommend.
