Whether it’s literally a rainy day or just some emotional dark clouds, our sweet-n-spicy puerh blend is just what you need for a comfort kick.
We use a rich, earthy puerh as the base, add in the cinnamon bark, ginger, and other spices, then pair them with a sweet cinnamon oil reminiscent of brown sugar. It brings sweetness while keeping it balanced — just what a rainy day calls for!
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.
For me this tea is Elegance in a cup. When I drink it I feel like some Exotic Queen. it is not crazy spicy, the spice is very subtle but it is super smooth with that hint of sweetness and the depth of flavor of the Puerh ugh. So good! I like this tea plain but I I feel like adding just a touch of sweetener really rounds out all the flavors.
I find that this blend is more on the sweet side than the spicy. It's still a great blend but if I am craving something a bit spicier I'll add one or two peppercorns to the steep. It's a great cup first thing in the morning to get your day started.
Intoxicating gingerbread notes... and pumpkin. Definitely pumpkin. I wish I could define it differently because 1) I don't want to seem a cliche'd part of the pumpkin wave & 2) this is totally my subjective interpretation, there's no pumpkin ingredients. But there's no avoiding it. Warm, comforting, and full bodied. Earthy Puerh taste- which I love, but it's not for fainthearted- is here in full force, as well
