Dark tea is a Chinese tea similar to pu’erh. Aged and fermented, dark tea has a wonderfully rich and complex flavor (and steeps multiple times, with varying layers of flavor appearing from each level).  We combine the dark tea with rose petals and vanilla for an inviting, aromatic brew.  If you haven’t had much experience with pu’erh before, we believe dark tea is an excellent introduction.  This particular blend we feel is also excellent to share with friends plus good foods and good conversation.

Our dark tea is pressed into heart shapes before aging – the tea was originally pressed into cakes by tea merchants to help the tea survive long journeys.   These heart shapes are just the right size for a cup – just pop one into your infuser and brew as normal.

Each pouch contains approximately 10 hearts (1.5 oz). Each heart is approximately 5 grams of tea.

Dark Tea (Pu’erh), Rose Petals, Vanilla Essence.

Preparation Instructions: Use 1 heart per 8oz water. Steep with boiling water for 3-6 minutes. A longer brew will result in a stronger flavor profile. Dark tea can produce multiple steeps - you'll find less vanilla/rose with multiple steepings but also other interesting notes - we strongly consider it!


Caffeine Scale is 1-4.

Great by itself, though you may consider a dash of honey to highlight the various flavor nuances.

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

Such a fun tea to enjoy with friends or on date night - the re-steeps make for great conversation.

Magically Delicious!

Ok, so it's not Lucky Charms BUT it is magically delicious! These little hearts travel well and provide a nice well rounded cuppa!

This tea is by far my favorite of all of them from Plum Deluxe. I don't know what it is, but there's something just wonderfully soothing about the deep taste of the pu'er mixed with the rose.

A very lovely tea with flavors that blend into a well balanced and delightful flavor. The flavors complement and don't overpower to make a very enjoyable experience. Watching the heart break apart is also very fun.

Great Valentine tea

Love Love Love this tea, its the best of Rose and Puerh tea, just a wonderful depth of flavor together, the vanilla is the perfect addition to the flavor profile.

Strong and floral

This has a n assertive rose flavor. You definitely can taste the aged nature of the tea. I really like this one. Also a nice bonus is that this type is made for multiple steeps.
