"I've never been as delighted with a 'surprise me' subscription - every tea is exceptional and wonderful and I've never gotten a single one that I consider 'throw away' as always happened with other subscriptions."

Meet Your Tea Blender
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 member of the Plum Deluxe organic tea of the month club.
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 monthly tea subscription box members.
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.
"My Sunday morning couldn’t be any better – this tea has got to be the absolute best blend I’ve EVER had! I can’t get over the flavors and how well they work together. All I can say to this is WOW, great stuff, excellent flavors all working together. It’s wonderful!”
– Anna G (tea club member for 3+ years) Verified Buyer
"The smell is AMAZING in these teas! I left them in my room just to scent up the place before I brewed them up. These aren’t ordinary loose tea you can buy from the grocery market, so it’s worth giving Plum Deluxe try!”
– Hanalei H Verified Buyer
"My purple package arrived and the beautiful warm smell pretty much brought tears to my eyes. So much love for this. I thought I was getting tea and I’m getting so much more. Thank you.”
