Scottish Breakfast tea is traditionally a powerful caffeine pick-me-up, comprised with a blend of teas from around the world. We found the perfect black teas from India, Africa, and Sri Lanka paired with a drop of our real Vermont maple syrup extract to create the perfectly balanced maple black tea power combo. We call it the Heritage Blend because this tea reminds us of the people that came before us, and infused in this blend are the roots of tea from around the world.

This blend uses “CTC” cuts of each tea — crush, tear, curl. It’s a method in which the leaves are processed to allow them to infuse a lot of flavor, very quickly (since those Scots long ago were in a hurry for their cuppa). That’s why the leaves in this tea are smaller in size and more uniform — but full of fresh flavor, and paired with the authentic syrup makes this the best tasting maple tea out there!

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

Ahh, I love this so much. Real maple plus a malty, bold breakfast tea. It's not really that sweet - it's just flavorful.

Deep, flavorful, and rich

I ordered several teas from Plum Deluxe in the hopes of discovering a black tea of strong yet not overpowering flavors—a tea that I would drink daily and never tire of its flavor. Heritage Blend vastly exceeded my expectations. Rich and powerful, yet with flavors that persist without growing tiresome; not as flashy as some blends perhaps, but one that serves as the foundation of my day. I do not exaggerate when I say that after a particularly trying day at work I crave coming home to a hot mug of Heritage Blend. Its flavor is strong and deep, the hint of maple delightfully subtle yet gratefully present. It is my daily blend and as such was my first bulk order. If I could choose only one blend of tea and no others to drink for the rest of my life, Heritage Blend would be the one. I adore it, obviously. Cheers!

Wow maple!

I like maple flavor and I like Irish Breakfast tea. The maple flavor was very obvious but not overpowering, however I could taste leaves in the tea (hot). I know that's so weird to say because obviously it IS leaves, but I don't like to taste plant in my tea. Probably won't reorder this but don't mind using up what I have.

Wonderful experience! I adored the Blender's Choice. Never would have tried it on my own, but really loved it! Thank you!

Heritage Blend Black Tea (Maple Scottish Breakfast)

It is very flavorful, very fresh. I love the mild maple taste. But for a breakfast tea the 1 teaspoon suggested was not nearly strong enough. I prefer my breakfast teas to be very bold. For the flavor to ‘wake me up’. It is probably just a matter of adjustment. I will try 2 teaspoons the next time.
