Sometimes you need a bold black tea to help you clear through the emotional and mental clutter and help you focus on what you need to do to reach your goals and dreams.

That’s the intention with our “Fog Cutter” Irish breakfast blend with a hint of lemon.  It’s got all of our favorite black teas — Darjeeling, African, Ceylon, and Assam — along with a hint of lemon peel to provide brightness.  Expertly blended, you’ll love it hot or iced, steeped strong or weak, with or without your favorite extras.  Sail ahead, brave one, and clear skies are ahead!

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.

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

I don't generally put lemon in my tea, but this really is lovely - it's a nice way to soften the edge of the fully caffeinated breakfast blend.

Favorite Tea

This tea made me a loose tea lover, from the first time I ordered it Plum Deluxe became my go to place to purchase tea and Fog Cutter has become my absolute all time favorite tea. For me it’s in anytime of the day or night tea.

Best tea EVER!!!

I have been a fan of hot tea since I was a tiny girl. My husband, however, has NOT. All that changed with Fog Cutter Black Tea. It is perfectly strong enough to replace his morning espresso. I love the little hint of lemon, and the lovely malty flavor. This is our current favourite! I will be ordering this by the pound soon. As always, thank you Plum Deluxe for a fabulous tea!!

Packs a punch!

This tea packs a punch with caffeine. If you're looking for a coffee replacement this may very well be it! It says Irish Breakfast flavor but when I tasted it I thought more English Breakfast. It's so smooth and great on its own (without milk/sugar/creamer). I will definitely reorder this when I use up my current package.

Great for Waking Up

This is my go to tea when I need maximum wake up value. I can't drink coffee anymore and this is a great alternative . I love all the flavored teas but when I've had a rough night Fog Cutter is my choice to get me moving.

My must-have tea!

Fog Cutter is the one tea I want to be sure to have on hand at all times. It's a great alternative to coffee to get me started in the morning. I'm not a fan of honeybush tea and I like that this doesn't have it. Fog Cutter is a great way to wake up!
