The reading nook blend is our signature tea created for enjoying while perfecting some of our dearest passions: reading, writing, and enjoying conversation with friends.  We basically combine 3 different tea concepts into one: rose black tea, lavender black tea, and black chamomile tea.

One needs a touch of caffeine to keep the conversation flowing, the pages turning, or the pen on the move, so we start this blend with a wonderful cream black tea. We then added rosebuds for creativity and sustenance, lavender for flavor and aroma, and top it off with a bit of chamomile which adds a calming balance to it all. Customers often tell us this is our prettiest tea and it certainly has the top reviews!

Preparation Instructions: Steep 1 tsp in 8 oz boiling water for 3-5 min.


Caffeine Scale is 1-4.

Some customers prefer a pinch of honey (we do, too) or a splash of milk with this blend; you might want to try some rock sugar instead. This tea can also be iced and/or blended with lemonade for an Arnold Palmer -- and a bit of vodka, if you prefer your beverage to be of the adult variety.

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

This was the first tea blend I ever made - the blend of caffeine and calming flowers has become famous!

This is one of my

This is one of my favorite teas, and one I have gifted to friends. It is a perfect tea for reading and relaxing, and smells as good as it tastes.

Love Plum Deluxe

I love Reading Nook, A bit surprised since it has rose which I’m not usually a fan of but it’s not overwhelming. Just so happy with all the teas I tried. I have many more that I’ll be buying.

Love it

Really enjoyed this tea, wish it was less caffeinated as I usually read later in the day.

Another lovely tea

I think this is another hit for me! I am your typical picky tea person - not an expert, just picky - so I like some and dislike others. I liked this one, and am taking it to work to have there. I really enjoy having your monthly surprise land in my mail box! Widens my horizons.

I'll preface this by saying that I don't like floral teas. The perfume smell puts me off. But, I received this one as a sample and decided to give it a try. There was no strong floral or perfume smell. The flavor was very mild, comforting, and relaxing (reading nook is a perfect name). definitely a surprise and worth a try even if you don't enjoy floral teas.
