I have to admit, I am a loose tea lover. There is just something relaxing and luxurious about sipping on a cup of freshly steeped tea. I think of enjoying a cup of tea as taking a moment to take care of myself and feel the flavors and aroma of loose tea really stand out.
I have written a few times about how much I enjoy a wide variety of loose teas and trying new ones. So when Plum Deluxe offered to send me some of their teas to review, I was thrilled at the opportunity. Please know, I will always provide my honest views and opinions.
Even before I received my samples to try, I was impressed with Plum Deluxe and what their company stands for.

Peach Bellini Herbal Tea
Peach Bellini Herbal Loose Tea will surely not disappoint. This is another tea blend that you can actually see the pieces of fruit in the blend, and you can tell this difference in the taste too. This fruity and flavorful caffeine free treat would be perfect for after dinner or even an afternoon treat.
Preparation Instructions: Steep 1 tsp in 8oz boiling water 4-6 min.
Easy to Be Green Tea (Blueberry / Hibiscus)
Easy to Be Green Loose Tea is a delightful loose green tea with a hint of blueberries. I loved the fragrance, as well as the flavor. You can actually see the dried blueberries (not just a flavoring as in some other teas).
Preparation Instructions: Use 1 1/2 tsp per 16oz cup. Steep with under-boiling water (175F) for 3 minutes.
Lavender Daydream White Tea (Mango / Peach / Floral)
Lavender Daydream White Loose Tea is a light and refreshing blend. There is just enough apricot fragrance and flavor to enhance, while not overpowering the delicate white tea.
Preparation Instructions: Steep 1 tsp in 8 oz below-boiling water (175F) 3-5 min.
I highly recommend Plum Deluxe Loose Teas for their aroma, flavor and company beliefs. If you’d like to give Plum Deluxe Loose Teas a try, you may want to consider their Tea of the Month Club (a new tea will be sent to you each month) or their Monthly Tea Specials (this month there is a special is on all Earl Grey Teas).
