- A caution - this is not like other 'breakfast' teasReview by Boyd
- Be prepared for the unusual fragrance and taste of this tea. It is not like the many variations of English Breakfast or Irish Breakfast tea you may have tried. The hint of maple gives it a unique character. (Posted on 2015-11-23)
- So British, but so Canadian!Review by Not a great tea lover
- I am not a tea or coffee drinker and this is the ONLY tea that I drink. I especially enjoy it with high tea. If you're a Canadian, breakfast tea drinker this might be for you. It's stronger than English breakfast and more flavourful than Irish breakfast, but not as strong as Scottish breakfast. It must be the maple that makes it so perfect for Canadians (or wannabe Canadians). It's great with a little milk and sugar and something sweet. (Posted on 2015-11-23)
- Worth Getting Up ForReview by Sarah - Murchie's Team Member
- Canadian Breakfast is one of my happy-place teas, and I know I'm not the only Murchie's staff member to say so. It is a rich, full-bodied blend of black teas with just a hint of sweet maple - I love to brew it strong and add milk. On a cold, dark (rainy!) morning, this tea will get me out of bed and on my way.

Flavour Profile Guide
Tea and coffee tasting is a very individual, multi-dimensional experience: one person’s perfect cup can be too strong or weak, too brisk or watery for the next person. At Murchie’s, we believe that the best tea or coffee is the one that YOU like the best! We use the following flavour profile guides to help compare our teas and coffees within a relative scale.
Tea Strength RatingsThis rating method indicates the strength of flavour each tea has when brewed according to our brewing guide.
|Light/Delicate: Very light in colour and delicate in flavour|
|Medium: Medium-light cup with slightly fuller cup|
|Medium-Strong: Medium-dark cup, medium body, and full flavour without harshness|
|Strong: Full body, rich cup, takes milk well|
|Very Strong: Rich, dark cup with very full, strong flavour and briskness|
Coffee RatingsWe rate the flavour properties of our coffees along two dimensions: roast and body.
Roast is simply a result of how long and how hot the beans have been roasted, which can be seen in the colour of the finished bean, and typically results in general flavour traits:
|Light Roast||More acidity, brightness and a slight pucker|
|Medium Roast||Slightly richer flavours, some acidity, enhanced creaminess|
|Dark Roast||Distinctive roasted flavour, sometimes notes of toasted sugar or charcoal|
Body is the term used to describe how the brewed coffee feels in your mouth:
|Light Body||Easy to drink with little lingering flavour, ‘thin’ or ‘clean’ feeling on the palate|
|Medium Body||Heavier, creamier mouth-feel with more lingering flavour|
|Full Body||Rich, full-mouth feeling: hits all of the palate and lingers|
