Plum Deluxe Tea Review

Plum Deluxe Tea

Hello my lovelies! I hope you are having a wonderful evening! I know that I am! I am healing quite nicely from my surgery last week! Yay! It has been aided by the amazing teas from Plum Deluxe Tea. They reached out to me a little while ago and asked if I would love to try some tea! How could I say no?!?! That fact is, I didn’t! Let’s dive into some of these amazing teas that they sent to me!

Porch Sippin’ Pecan Black Tea
Retail: $7

This tea is EXACTLY what the name of it invokes! I CANNOT get enough of the black tea with cinnamon chips, pecan pieces, pecan essence, and safflower. The smell is intoxicating!

Not only was the smell intoxicating but the taste was to die for. This is a type of tea that you can have with or without sweetener. As you all know, I am a huge believer in getting honey from your local beekeepers. This was a perfect mixture! It will be even more amazing come autumn!

Blackberry Mojito Black Tea
Retail: $7

This tea has a mixture of black tea, spearmint, blackberries, hazelnut pieces, blackberry leaves, lime essence, maple extract, and love! This one does have caffeine in it. This is the perfect “WAKE ME UP” tea. If you like coffee and the kick it gives you in the morning, I would try this one out.

I loved what they said on the website, it fit this tea perfectly! “Inspired by the cocktail of the same name, our blackberry mojito tea will add some pizzazz to your tea time.  The hallmarks of a refreshing mojito are lime and spearmint, which we added a few blackberries and also a splash of maple (mojitos generally have powdered sugar – we thought this was a lovely substitute).   It’s sweet and refreshing without being overly so.  Great iced and great shared with friends.”

Spice of Life Hot Cinnamon Black Tea
Retail: $7

I’m not going to lie, this has to be my favorite tea that they sent me. I have a weakness for cinnamon tea. This one is perfect! It is the PERFECT tea to help clear your sinuses and wake you up in the morning. It does have caffeine. I love that it has black tea, cinnamon chips, cloves, and orange peel. Anything with citrus is wonderful!

IMG_2843

The Simple Loose Leaf Tea Company is one of my absolute favorite tea subscription boxes ever! They normally send you 4 different teas, 2 with caffeine, and 2 without. This is perfect for those colder nights that you want tea but you’re close to your bedtime and you are wanting something that wont keep you up too long. Another aspect of this Classic Tea Box is the fact that they send you 4 reusable linen tea bags every month!

From Simple Loose Leaf Company:

“Each month you’ll get a box filled with teas ranging from classically savory to enjoyably trendy, you’ll get terrific, members’ only discounts for our tea shop, and you’ll get everything you need to make that perfect cup of tea.”

What You’ll Get:

  • Four hand packaged loose leaf teas
  • 40g of tea in resealable pouches
  • A black tea, a green tea, an herbal tea and more
  • Reusable organic linen tea filters

For only $9 a month! That is a steal!

So without further ado, let’s get into October’s Tea Box!

Mao Zhen Hair Needle
Retail: $7.00

This is an every day green tea. This is a bold cup of tea that will give you a little bit of a herbaceous flavor. What is fantastic about this tea is that as your cup steeps the flavors evolve and become different. It is suggested that you steep it for one minute, taste it. Steep it for another 30 seconds and taste it again. You will be able to really appreciate all of the flavors that develop as the tea steeps.

“OM” Herbal
Retail: $8.00

“OM” Herbal is just what you picture. I love the fact that just the name brought me a sense of peace and tranquility. It doesn’t stop there however. The ingredients in this flavorful tea are something else. Filled with cardamon, saffron, licorice root, fennel, ginger root, cinnamon and more, this tea is sure to awaken your inner self and help calm

you as well. It has amazing earthy notes. You wont regret this cuppa.

Rusty Roots
Retail: $8.00

If you are a lover of Chai tea this might be perfect for you. It has subtle hints of chai but with a low caffeine count. This would be a perfect cuppa right after dinner but before you are ready to settle down for the night. The notes include green rooibos, whole clove, lemon mrytle, whole pepper, and turmeric. I love the color, scent, and flavor of this tea.

IMG_2848

Rose Grey
Retail: $6.00

I have a real weakness for Earl Grey tea. This is the lighter more fun twist on the Ear Grey tea with rose petals, lavender flowers, and rosemary. I love the subtle flavors that pair nicely with the Earl Grey notes. This is a great tea for breakfast with a scone or muffin.

This has been another lovely tea box! I love the new design to the box as well. It made me smile the moment I retrieved it from my mailbox. You really couldn’t get a better tea box for the price of $9.00 a month. I high recommend you try it out!

 

Happy drinking!

Karakundah Black Tea

Rhis tea is perfect when it comes to a cooler night. I always sweeten my tea with a little big of natural honey from Oklahoma to help with allergies and whatnot. This tea is found in the Nilgiri region of India. The ingredients are Organic Korakundah Black Orange Pekeo Tea.

IMG_2832

Northern Garden

This is one of the most beautiful teas I have seen! I love how the pearls open up when the tea is steeping. It is extremely relaxing to watch! This tea has a base of Ti Kwan Yin oolong tea. To jazz it up they have added a mouth watering amount of berries. You all know how much I LOVE berry tea! It is my weakness.

This tea can be sipped cold or hot. I would recommend using a little bit of honey or natural sugar to liven up the sweetness of the berries.

Pan Fried Green

Sometimes you just need a tea that doesn’t have any overwhelming flavors. You need something that is Simply Tea. This is the perfect green tea for those days. It is traditional and soothing to sip on the back porch while reading an amazing book!

IMG_2834

Evening Herbal

This tea smelled like heaven to me. The subtle scents of peppermint, ginger, and lemon brought a sense of calm to a hectic day. These are three of my most favorite scents ever. The peppermint will open up your senses while the ginger will relax your tense body, and the lemon will awaken your mind and make the day feel brand new!

This tea is best brewed hot to get the full effects of the three main ingredients. I love it so much! It is my favorite tea in the whole box!

I hope you all enjoyed reading about the September’s Simple Loose Leaf Tea box! I highly recommend that you pick this up! They have so many different types of subscriptions that you can do! Monthly, Quarterly.

XOXO
