When I was first approached by a member of the Plum Deluxe team, they mentioned this blend. I was immediately interested based on the name alone!
I mean, Reading Nook Blend Black Tea? Sounds wonderful!

Let’s dive into my thoughts about this tea from Plum Deluxe!
My thoughts on Reading Nook Blend Black Tea from Plum Deluxe
As the packaging says, this Reading Nook Blend Black Tea by Plum Deluxe is “A blend of joy. Pairs well with creativity, reading & writing, conversation, relaxing.”
All organic: Black Tea, Rosebuds, Lavender, and Chamomile.
First Try: 1 tsp, Single cup, Brewed for 4 minutes
The smell was a little stronger than I prefer my teas so that made me a little nervous. But it tastes pretty good! This is such a fun blend! The black tea taste is definitely strong and the kick of the more flavorful rosebud and lavender is clear.
I definitely agree with the description, this would be a great tea to sip while reading, doing something creative, or chatting.
I would rate this one at 3 out of 5 for me personally, simply because I prefer more plain teas.
Second Try: 1 tsp, Single cup, Brewed for 4 minutes
Addition: A bit of raw honey.
I definitely prefer this one with a bit of honey! It added just the right amount of sweetness! But unfortunately this one still just isn’t my cup of tea.
I’d rate this tea at a 3.5 out of 5 with the honey.
While this was a wicked fun blend, and I love the name, this one wasn’t my personal favorite favor.
I will absolutely finish the batch that I was given, but I may not purchase this one on my own.
If you enjoy teas with lovely flavoring, you should definitely check this one out!
