If you’re looking for the cutest, calmest mug out there – you just found it.  Two bears cuddling under translucent stars – which is why we call this our Wish Upon a Star mug.  The design is adorable, but what’s even more magical is the stars of the sky – which are translucent.

You might think that this starry sky treatment is cute and whimsical, but the technique of using translucent glazing is called “hotarude” – a historical skill of ceramics.  It was pioneered by the Persians back in the 12th century! The name of “hotarude” comes from the gentle light. In Japanese, “hotaru” is a firefly; people likened the light of openwork to the light of a firefly. We like it because it helps you see the tea!

This mug comes with the option of getting a $5 Stargazer Mate Chai – a perfect pairing!

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.
