For us this a classic vanilla black tea is the most comforting tea blend, which is why we call it our “house blend” — inspired by a typical British “builder’s tea,” it is strong yet restorative. The black vanilla tea base is a balanced mix of bold, malty Assam and citrusy sweet Ceylon black teas (in traditional English Breakfast or Irish Breakfast style), with a sprinkle of creamy vanilla as well as malva flowers and safflowers to add a pop of Plum Deluxe signature color that reflects the thoughtful attention that goes into every cup.

This tea blends up so nicely, whether you like it with honey, sugar, milk, a side of shortbread & biscuits, on ice… or just like it is, piping hot!

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

A creamy, delicious twist on a classic vanilla tea. I like it with a splash of creamer.

Perfect ‘day off’ breakfast tea!

Best on a day when I don’t have to go to work & can sip slowly while relaxing!

Almost...

Bit more Vanilla would help. I had to add some sweet cream.

Not my favorite

I guess I'm just used to all the other wonderful blends at PD with different, stand-out flavors, because this tea just tasted very bland to me? I really wanted to like it because I'm a fan of normal English Breakfast, but this was just a very plain tea. And I really love vanilla-flavored things too! But I think I'm definitely in the minority - lots of other folks love it!
