Plum Deluxe Subscription Box Review – October 2014
Plum Deluxe is a monthly tea subscription. Every month, they send you hand-blended teas made from ingredients that are from USDA Organic and Fair Trade certified vendors. They offer two subscription plans: the Casual Sipper (one monthly blend of tea, enough for ~15 cups) and the Daily Cuppa (two monthly blends of tea, enough for ~30 cups). Plum Deluxe also creates custom blends for weddings and special occasions.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription: Plum Deluxe
The Cost: the Casual Sipper costs $10/month, and you pay for 3 months up front. The Daily Cuppa costs $18/month, and you pay for 3 months up front.

Ships to: US
Each delivery includes an informational card describing their monthly blend and providing brewing instructions. This month, they detail their Harvest Chai tea. Apparently, chai tea usually includes black tea (which has caffeine), but they made their blend with rooibos tea, so it’s caffeine-free.
Harvest Chai tea – ingredients: ginger root, cinnamon bark, red rooibos tea, cardamom, clove, nutmeg, vanilla beans
Autumn Glow tea – ingredients: apples, cinnamon, raspberries, rose hips, hibiscus flowers, licorice
Both of these teas are delicious! I love the Harvest Chai especially – the spices and ginger and vanilla all come together so nicely. I also really like the floral aspects of the Autumn glow – I can definitely smell the rose hips, hibiscus, and the licorice, too.
Verdict: I really enjoyed the October delivery of Plum Deluxe. I love knowing that these teas are organic and fair trade, and also that I’m supporting a small business. The packaging is really nice – the hand-stamped pouch is such a nice touch and I appreciate that they put a short description and all the ingredients on each pouch. I think all this would also make it a great gift for a friend!
