Do you know what’s the best after a long day at work? Curling up on the couch with a cozy blanket, staring out the window, watching the fall leaves change colors, all while sipping on a cup of relaxing tea.
Prior to a couple weeks ago, I had never tried loose leaf tea. It sort of scared me! Isn’t it silly how the unfamiliar seems so daunting until you give it a go? Loose leaf tea is not any harder to brew than the bagged variety. All you need is a tea infuser, disposable tea bags, or simply a fine mesh strainer! Follow your tea instructions, and after about 5 minutes, you’ll have a nice relaxing beverage to sip on! The best part about buying loose leaf tea is that it’s typically cheaper and fresher than tea bags.
Plum Deluxe is a tea company based out of Portland, OR. Their loose leaf teas are organic, non-GMO, fair trade, hand-blended, and most importantly, incredibly delicious. They recently sent me three samples to indulge my taste buds – Self Care, Cuddletime, and Sunshine in a Cup (can you guess which is which?).
Each had their own unique flavors; the smell alone made my mouth water! But I have to say, being that I’m a fan of peppermint teas, Cuddletime was my favorite. With a hint of sweetness, this tea made from chamomile, rooibos tea, peppermint leaves, and vanilla essence warmed me right up and gave me time to simply enjoy the day.
If you’re a huge fan of tea, Plum Deluxe offers a Monthly Tea Club subscription. For just $10, you get 20 cups worth of high quality, artisan loose leaf tea. If you ask me, that’s a steal of a deal!
What’s your favorite way to relax after a long day?
