Talking Tea

Conversations about tea and tea culture

Dec 17, 2014

On our pre-holiday episode of Talking Tea we chat with Andy Hayes, founder and tea maker at Plum Deluxe, a tea blender based in Portland, Oregon. Andy talks with us about his mission to help people slow down and craft a life they really enjoy, and how this goal, combined with Andy's views on the importance of organic teas and his experiences of European tea traditions, influences his blending process.


More on Plum Deluxe's teas can be found on its website,, on Pinterest at and on Facebook at
