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.

A nice black tea

Black tea is my go to tea. I really like this blend with its hints of vanilla.

Great Staple

One of my go-to everyday teas. Subtle flavor but so good!

Nice strong black tea

While I don't get much creaminess from this blend, its one of my favorite "base teas" to combine with other flavors- coconut, elderberry, or ginger.

House blend black tea

I love English breakfast tea so this one is delightful with a hint of vanilla. I enjoy mine with warm frothed milk so yummy!!

Go to Morning Tea

I am obsessed with this tea. I am a big vanilla lover and this tea is so smooth and not bitter. It reminds me a lot of a very expensive vanilla black tea that I like but cant make myself spend the money on, so when I found this one, I was in love!
