For us this 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 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!

All Plum Deluxe teas are hand-blended and infused with love in Portland, Oregon. Each 1 oz tea packet makes 15-20 cups. All organic ingredients — no sulfites, no artificial chemicals, non-GMO.

House Blend Black Tea

Anything with vanilla, I am there ! Plum Deluxe’s “Creamy Vanilla English Breakfast” does not disappoint. Upon opening the bag, the aroma can be savored.

Might be my favorite

I know many of my Plum Deluxe reviews say "this one might be my favorite" but THIS one is always on my "To Order" list and is the one I consistantly reach for. There isn't much of a vanilla flavor but just enough to make it creamy and rich tasting. It's a very comforting tea that I enjoy in the morning instead of coffee
