Looking for a conversation starter? We’ve got one right here with this great blend – widely considered the best black currant tea, with vanilla. It’s elegance in a cup, a wonderful balance of woodsy vanilla and tart fruit.

This blend relies on its simplicity. The base is a fresh, earthy, and grounding Formosa oolong tea from Taiwan. Our favorite vanilla extract helps bring out the layers of floral notes in the oolong, while rose hips and black currant add wonderful highlights of sweet-tart fruitiness. It’s invigorating and calming at the same time. We can’t decide if we like it more hot or iced, so you’ll have to try both.

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

I was watching the Great British Baking Show and kept seeing these two flavors pop up - I had to head into my workshop and make this recipe right away. (It is great with baked goods, obviously.)

Dark fruit delicious

I love this tea! The oolong and the currant compliment each other nicely, and it's great to have a fruity tea that isn't berry flavored. Highly recommend!

Newbie to Oolong

I have very little experience who oolong teas but this was super good. my mom made me wait for her to try it cuz she was excited to try it too. And we were not disappointed. The currents gave it a lot of natural sweetness and the flavor was very well-rounded and bold and flavorful, its a very deep flavored tea.
