Mate tea is a cultural icon in South America — it’s known as the beverage of friendship and that’s what inspired us to carry our own blend of yerba mate chai tea, sourced thoughtfully from Brazil.

Many tea drinkers like mate because the caffeine is very smooth as compared to black teas. If you’ve had trouble with caffeine before, you might enjoy mate.

The tea itself is toasted and has a slightly smoky flavor; we pair it with fresh orange peel and a variety of spices to enhance the flavor, as well as a splash of caramel, making it a caramel chai tea. This makes an amazing tea latte, especially with a hint of sugar or honey for balance. Or prepare it like traditional masala chai — we think you’ll love it.

We call this our Stargazer blend because when making it, we were inspired by the tribal rituals of South American cultures, and we think about the beautiful sights and gorgeous night skies (with different stars than in the Northern Hemisphere!) when sipping it. Allow the cool, calm, collected caffeination to open your mind and connect you to the best version of yourself and your most creative ideas.

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

The sweet caramel notes and the touch of smoke from the mate creates a out-of-this-world flavor profile. I love making this into a tea latte.

Stargazer Caramel Chai

This is so good with steamed milk and a little brown sugar. My daughter, who says tea is just weak flavored water, also really liked this (with a bit more that a little brown sugar, though). I ran out while she was home for winter break and she was very sad. I like to drink this in the late afternoon when I'm half falling asleep, I usually don't get much of a boost from caffeine but this really perks me right up. Plus, SO GOOD!

One of My VERY Favorite Chai Teas!

This chai tea is delicious and great with a little cream! I can really taste the orange and cloves, but I think the caramel is kind of subtle. It smells so wonderful when it’s steeping, I can hardly wait to drink it!!

Amazing Chai

This is one of the best Chai teas I’ve ever tasted. I also Like that it is Mate tea.

Earthy and Spicey and Good, Oh My!

This is definitely my cup of tea: earthy and spicey. I like it strong without milk or sweetener. The flavors that seem strongest to me are the cardamom and cloves. I think the caramel acts as a smoother ingredient to counteract the spiceness for a just-right blend. Again.

I love this tea—it has a great, balanced flavor between the sweetness and the spice, and I like drinking mate in the afternoon if I need a caffeine kick because it's a bit smoother. I also gifted this to my friend for the holidays, and she is hooked!
