We knew from day one that the Plum Deluxe lineup needed a gratitude and appreciation blend. But what would it be? We just couldn’t decide, until one day we accidentally brewed up a cup of strawberry Earl Grey tea. It was love from first sip. This strawberry black tea blend just feels very happy to us — which, combined with the classic Earl Grey note, makes it the perfect dance partner for a gratitude tea.
The fresh fruitiness of the strawberry is balanced by the astringent, toothsome bergamont of the Earl Grey. We use a Ceylon tea base that has a somewhat gentle vanilla to it to help provide body. Despite the two predominant flavors, we wouldn’t call this tea sweet — but it does sip well with a touch of honey or sugar.
