- Excellent white teaReview by Glacier Guy
- Excellent tasting tea. I didn't know what to expect from white tea, but just one sip and you know you are drinking something very precious - a gift from mother earth. Murchie's teas are very good quality and I don't drink any other tea brand (Posted on 2015-11-14)
- Great White TeaReview by Christine P - Murchie's Team Member
- Although I drink more coffee than tea I have to RAVE over the Organic White Peony! The taste is so creamy and mild and actually makes me feel so good after I have had a" cuppa." Best tea ever! (Posted on 2012-07-21)

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|
