I’m not regularly reviewing tea here because I’ve narrowed down my daily teas to two, and I haven’t been trying new ones. So, when I find a tea that is “teagasm” to the max, I have to share.
I’ve changed my eating habits over the past few months and have become a vegan who intermittently fasts (i.e. I eat twice-a-day). So tea has become very important to me during the fasting times. I realized that I wanted a nice caffeine free tea to treat myself with once I get home from my job. I also knew I wanted to try and find a blend with honeybush.
Enter google! I hadn’t heard of Plum Deluxe before, and after looking at their offerings, I ordered two honeybush blends (I’ll try the Vistas blend tonight). After I’d placed my order, I received a nice email from the owner which was a really unexpectedly sweet touch.
When the teas arrived yesterday, I opened the package and was like “WHOA THAT’S FRUITY LISCIOUS!” The two teas’ fragrances combined smelled like a really fruity bubblegum.
I steeped up a whole set of water bottles (I now steep bigger quantities to fill BPA-free water bottles and store them in the fridge for iced tea throughout the day), and tried one bottle before bed. I didn’t mean to drink the whole thing (getting up to use the bathroom at night sucks), but I did AND I’D DO IT AGAIN.
The apricot is the star in this blend, and I never thought I cared for apricot that much. But this blend is freaking deliciously Foo-Foo. Like, it’s a dream Foo-Foo-Fruity tea that I’d want to drink while riding a sparkly unicorn. It’s more forgiving in terms of steeping temperature/time than my previous “Queen of the Foo-Foo Teas” Rosy Earl Grey from Teas Etc.
All this is to say that I’ll be drinking this tea every freaking night that I can as it will have a permanent place in my cupboard. TG
