Portland Rose City Chai, isn't it gorgeous?
Side by side tasting. How fun to taste these special blends
There were 4 different teas in my mailbox when I returned
from a recent adventure.
Each was so beautiful with flowers and tea together
in the filter and then to enjoy the scent and flavors so artfully put together.
Portland Rose City Chai
"Sip a bit of Oregon in your cuppa"
The fragrance was a delight, very smooth flavor.
It was good, but a surprise chai with rose petals, almond rooibos,
cardamon, ginger, cinnamon, lemongrass, blackberry essence,
Oregon Breakfast Black Tea
"Like a beautiful sunrise, celebrate today
with this rich, bright cup of love."
Of the four teas I sampled, this was my favorite.
It was a yummy, nutty blend of black tea, honeybush tea, orange peel,
hazelnut essence, Love, Gratitude.
A nice wake me up blend, smooth, not overbearing, but the combination
of nutty and black tea was just perfect.
Deluxe Pumpkin Spice Tea
"It's a pumpkin party! Pairs well with pies and cookies,
sweaters and blankets."
A light spicy scent and flavor, which I appreciated in a fall blend
with just a touch of pumpkin.
Sunshine in a Cup Herbal Tea
"Sometimes you need a tea that perks up poor moods
or cures a case of the blues"
The calendula flowers and hibiscus flowers made such a lovely
combination for a herbal tea. You would need to like hibiscus
to really enjoy this tea. Bright red when steeped.
It was good with sparkling water for a lovely
iced treat in the afternoon.
Plum Deluxe teas are blended with Love and each would be wonderful
with an English Afternoon Tea experience.
I must say Andy Hayes, the owner of Plum Deluxe, chose the right person
to taste his Oregon blends, as I live in the heart of Oregon.
He has a tea of the month club worth checking out
