Our founder, Andy Hayes, loves curating gifts for tea lovers, and we share these in our quarterly “Plum Box” – a thoughtful, themed collection of surprises for tea lovers. The boxes are unique in that they feature products made by Plum Deluxe not yet available, as well as handmade creations from other thoughtful artisan businesses.
Each box has a theme, but is completely different. Generally boxes include:
– 2 x 1oz loose leaf tea blends made special for the box
– 1 tea-related item, related to the theme (infusers, tea mug, tea towel, honey/sugar/etc.)
– Several other items theme-related. These could include, but not limited to: paper/stationery/art, bath/body/apothecary, mindfulness items, self care supports, kitchen items.
We don’t generally do many edibles in this boxes due to allergies; if we do include something it is usually sugar/honey or the occasional chocolate, but it is rare.
All items are hand-made or hand-altered by us or a thoughtfully chosen artisan business partner.

Quarterly Plum Box (Up Next - Crafty Box)Andy Hayes
I received my British themed box of delights yesterday and this may be my favorite quartely box so far. It’s so much fun to order in advance and anticiipate a box of surprises. It’s like Christmas! The teas that are made exclusively for the box are delicious too! I’m glad that I’ve already ordered the summer box! More delights to look forward to!
I loved my first box! I love both tea and the Victorian era. I loved everything I got in this box, and was pleasantly surprised to find items that I had already planned on buying in the future as well as something that my fiance and I immediately started playfully fighting for. I received my first box as a gift for Christmas, but I am sold on purchasing as many future boxes as I can afford!
I totally forgot I ordered a quarterly plum box and today I had the most magnificent surprise! I love this lunar theme!!! <3 <3 I get my parcels delivered to work and I was jumping up and down at my desk in excitement. as my coworkers passed by they were all entranced with the various fragrance
GOOD TO KNOW:
- This item is made to order and will ship near the displayed approx ship date. We do our best to ship on time but since we are dependent on a variety of other artisan businesses, ship dates are not guaranteed.
- No refunds will be accepted on pre-orders. You may choose a one-time transfer a pre-order to another person.
- The retail value of the items in each box is over $50. By purchasing them wholesale and sharing them with you, we are able to bring the cost down.
- Supplies limited, when we sell out, that's it until the next quarterly plum box.
Ordering Information: Once you complete your purchase, your tea will be hand-blended then packed into 1 oz re-sealable poly bags. We will carefully package it into our signature purple envelopes, and then your tea will relax and read a magazine while traveling to you via USPS First Class Mail from Portland, Oregon. Teas generally leave our studio within 2-4 business days of ordering - we will contact you if we expect any delays.
Due to the exacting and very personal nature of our specialty blends, we cannot offer refunds or exchanges on the tea that we sell. If you find that you get a shipment that is not, well, your cup of tea, we ask that you pass it along to a friend who will enjoy it. Then share your feedback with us so we can continue to improve our product.
Allergy Information: Plum Deluxe teas are hand-blended in a single facility that also processes tree nuts.
Our Policy on Organic Sourcing: Almost all of the ingredients purchased by Plum Deluxe for our teas are backed by USDA-compliant organic certifications. In cases where we work with a non-certified vendor, we are purchasing ingredients that are carefully wildcrafted, ingredients that are from a region of the world that does not have an organic certification program (such as parts of Japan or Taiwan), or from small family farms that cannot yet afford their certification or have not yet completed their certification. In all cases, we very carefully vet our products to ensure their are full of flavor, without any unwanted chemicals, artificial flavors, or genetically modified organisms. Thank you for trusting us to find the freshest, most delicious ingredients that are grown on sustainable, fair trade farms by companies we know, like, and trust.
