From Plum Deluxe

Everybody loves a good cup of orange spice tea — and here at Plum Deluxe, we have our own simple recipe that we make whenever the moment calls for a classic hot or iced tea. We start with a fresh Ceylon black tea that has a wonderful vanilla aroma to it, and add dried orange peel, the best cinnamon chips we can find, and just a pinch of clove and ginger. With a little extra orange extract for added citrus, it’s got a gentle balance that will leave you feeling tranquil and revitalized.

This is supposed to be an orange/spice blend, but I’m not getting much of either. There is a fairly muted cinnamon flavor coming through, and the black base is pretty brisk and bold. Perhaps a tiny bit of orange peeking through at the tail end of the sip. Overall, I’d rather just go with Constant Comment if I want this flavor profile.

This is the (tiny) free sample from my advent calendar order. It seems to be an orange spice sort of blend, which is fine with me.

Unfortunately I used a bit too much water because I wasn’t paying enough attention, but it doesn’t seem to have done too much damage. This has a strong sweet cinnamon candy-like flavor, sort of like Hot Cinnamon Spice from Harney but without the actual sweetness that blend has. The cinnamon dominates the beginning of the sip, and then a bright orange oil note comes in and takes over near the end. The orange reminds me of candy as well, making this a very candy-forward tea for me. The black base has some body but I can’t taste much else, possibly due to the whole too-much-water fiasco… There’s a hint of clove here as well.

Overall, it’s fairly tasty. Probably not something I would feel the need to order since I already have a variant of Hot Cinnamon Spice, but I wouldn’t mind drinking it again. :)

Sounds like a variation of good old Constant Comment.

I actually remembered to buy a box of Constant Comment the last time I was at the grocery store, but haven’t cracked it open yet. :P

AJRimmer

Their free samples are so tiny that I always end up adding too much water :P

Cameron B.

I know, so tiny! :|

Mastress Alita

Ha, I thought the same thing when I saw the free sample. Zoolander voice: “It’s… for ants!”

Cameron B.

It has to be at least three times bigger than this!

Aha! I finally finished all the teas from last year’s advent calendar! Just in time to start the new one…… But, I have been having varying luck with these Plum Deluxe black blends lately. This is another one that doesn’t taste like too much of anything. I feel like I get some light ginger and that’s just about it. Honestly, it wasn’t worth the caffeine for me to even finish it. Mildly flavored and boring to my tastes!

Courtney

Yay for polishing teas off in time to start new advents!

Dustin

Did you order another Plum Deluxe advent this year? They said they were shipping them mid November, but there are only 13 days until December and I haven’t gotten a shipping notice. :/

AJRimmer

Yeah, I haven’t received even a shipping notification from them yet. Hopefully they haven’t forgotten us!

Mastress Alita

Same. If we are all in the same boat, I think the advents just haven’t shipped yet!

I’m sharing my review for the decaf version here, as the regular blend is very close in flavor.

The scent in the bag is zippy and sweet with lush orange peel and snappy cinnamon. Both flavors a suited to pair with the tanin-y black tea base. Brewed, the spiciness mellows out, letting the tea flavor itself come to the forefront. The orange peels add to the natural citrus flavors in the tea, while the cinnamon brings a specific warmth and sweetness.

The ginger and cloves are thankfully a bit to the background, as those ingredients have a tendency to take over a blend if not used sparingly. I like ginger and cloves, but if I wanted to taste a tea with them, I would go for a chai. I prefer this tea when I want something warming but with flavor beyond the traditional chai flavors.

The orange is the crown jewel in this blend, separating it from chai teas, and adding an uplifting brightness to my mug.

The fragrance on this is just amazing – luscious orange and spices, in a nice balance with each other. Unfortunately, the flavor falls a little short. It’s still good, but not as divine as promised. I don’t get any vanilla from this, and the tea base is a bit musty or earthy for these flavors. Again, it’s still good – maybe the fragrance was just so wonderful that I am let down by a perfectly adequate flavor.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Orange

That always sucks when a tea smells out of this world but falls flat in flavour!
