Two weekends ago I received an email from Andy, the lovely owner of Plum Deluxe, a tea shop in Oregon. Andy had heard about my podcast from one of his customers and asked if he could send me a cup of tea. Of course I said yes and I received a delightful package a few days later.
Reading Nook Blend contains black tea, rosebuds, lavender, chamomile and vanilla essence.
It is available for $7 per ounce.
When I opened the package I could smell the rosebuds and the vanilla. Once steeped I got more of the lavender. The tea was a delicious black tea with a bit of a sweet floral hint. I’ll admit that I’m not usually a fan of the more floral teas (chamomile, lavender) but this was really lovely and light. I can totally picture reading this while curled up with a good book on a rainy day.
A special thank you to Andy at Plum Deluxe who sent me this tea (retail: $7.00) for free. I received no other compensation for this review. All opinions and photos are my own, except where indicated.
