From Plum Deluxe

Sometimes you just want to sit a spell and relax with a cup of tea. Whether that’s on the front porch, back porch – or heck, anywhere, even if you don’t have a porch – our fragrant, delicious pecan tea black tea blend is a brew you’ll want to sink into.

With a base of bold, vibrant, malty Orange Pekoe black tea from India pairs with rich cinnamon chips and actual pecans! The result is a strong tea that brews well whether you like it black, with milk/sugar, iced, or even whipped into a tea latte.

1 tsp for 8 oz, 3-5 minutes

Samurai Travelling Tea Box – Tea #15

I was excited to see a pecan tea in the box – that’s a flavour that I really enjoy but that I think is really hard to capture in a tea blend and I’ve never really found the “perfect” pecan tea. I guess my closest thing right now is DT’s Sweet Potato Pie? But that’s not really a dedicated pecan blend…

This is really nice – it has all those sweet and nutty pecan and caramelized sugar notes that I want and expect from Pecan Pie and it’s also not too sweet/cloying which I really appreciate! There’s even a tiny bit of astringency that adds some depth to the flavour as well. Could it be more pecan-y? Yes, probably – but I still think it’s hitting the mark in terms of delivering a clear and defined pecan note.

The one thing that I really don’t like? The chocolate note.

I am personally just not super into chocolate tea blends in general, but I have a particular frustration with teas that use chocolate as a crutch to either add more sweetness, richness, or overall depth to the blend. As good example is DT’s English Toffee – I want a toffee tea and I feel adding the chocolate to the tea robs me of the satisfaction of tasting that one particular flavour note. The chocolate flavour here is nice – it’s decadent and kind of “truffle-y” tasting, but I feel robbed of the satisfaction of having a really good pecan tea.

I probably will not keep this one for myself, but I was tempted to for a moment. It’s overall one of the better pecan flavours I’ve ever found in a tea.

Quarantine life isn’t much different from everyday life as far as my schedule goes, but I do enjoy working from home. A silver lining in all of this uncertainty. Today is a beautiful day so I have windows and doors open to the back porch, and there are lizards on the sill and bees buzzing around our blueberry bushes. We are truly fortunate to be safe and well at home.

Much like Shanie O Maniac, I find myself lacking the motivation to drink tea lately, though I’m surrounded by it and am working right near the kitchen. I felt determined today to have at least one cup so I pulled this, my final tea from Plum Deluxe, from the bin under our tea cabinet. Yes, we are in overflow.

I’m so grateful to companies like Plum Deluxe who make such an effort to share and introduce us to their teas. They could have done many other things, or nothing at all, but they sent three full-size pouches of tea plus a sample for me to try. This is my last of the bunch.

I’m not sure if this is a chocolate tea, but I taste chocolate. It reminds me of one of those hazelnut-flavored coffees, though I don’t actually taste hazelnut. That’s just the most common nutty flavor I think of when I think flavored coffee. And it is nutty, especially as it cools, but it’s not specifically pecan. I really think coffee drinkers would love this. It’s deep and dark and quite flavorful.

Replaying FF7 on my Switch in gleeful anticipation of the PS4 remake. Gamer girl’s gotta game. Anyway. I enjoy nutty teas, but I’ve never had a pecan one. Hazelnut, almond, chestnut, and walnut yes, but never pecan. And so, I figured I’d give this a try.

I’m glad I did. I could drink this every day, and in fact I pretty much have since I got it. Both dry and brewed, it smells amazingly good. There’s big chunks of pecan in the tea, and pecan’s the dominant flavor. The cinnamon plays nice in the background and doesn’t overpower it. My only problem is that I’m going through it a little too quickly since I like it so much.

I was thinking of FF7 the other day… but I’ve never played it. :D

It’s one of my favorites, and I’ve replayed it a lot. I might actually be going through it too quickly because I don’t have enough money to properly equip my party, haha.

TTB. I tried this one before, but didn’t remember much about it. I reduced my rating a bit. It’s perfectly okay, just very boring. A bit of a pecan flavor, with some cinnamon as well.

I was looking into tea subscription services, asking around on my main Facebook group I frequent. It was a pass up between Plum Deluxe and Sipsby, and was going to try Sipsby, based on the fact you can create a flavor profile, but I decided I needed to be a little adventurous. Ok, well, kind of. I decided to try out some sample based on flavors I liked, before I bought a box of surprises. Makes me a little nervous, considering I hate rose and lavender flavors.

anyway, a lot of what I like is in the black tea area (hate green, mostly) and I like flavors of nuts, vanilla, maple, apples, cinnamon, blueberry, but I’m willing to try almost anything that isn’t lavender or roses. I haven’t tried any kind of chocolate tea yet, but that’s next on my sample list.

I got a bunch of samples and some bigger bags, and I had a feeling I’d love Porch Sippin’ Pecan. Cinnamon, pecan, can’t really go wrong for me.
I feel like this needs to be brewed stronger than the instructions though, so I suggest 2 teaspoons instead of 1, but that might be because my mug is a little over 10 oz vs. 8 oz.
It’s very good with milk and/or sugar. I use lactose free milk and sugar in the raw with almost all my teas, unless it’s something that needs honey.

It’s a very subtle nutty tea that I imagine would go very well with scones, or shortbreads. Probably would be good with pancakes, and I may even try a dash of maple syrup in it next time. I enjoyed it with my knitting today.
