Delish!Review by Stephanie
If you love maple this is the tea for you. When brewing it smells like someone has made a big plate of pancakes. It's delicious hot or cold,a touch of cream makes for a very decadent cup of tea. (Posted on 2016-06-03)
So goodReview by Lola
Love, Love this tea. A flavoured tea that is actually full-bodied. I wish I had bought more. It's almost desert. Thank you (Posted on 2014-10-17)
Sugar Maple is very addictive!Review by Kos
This tea is amazing. I was surprised my husband commented how good it smelled and he was right. For once, I was glad he isn't a tea drinker otherwise I'd have to share! Love Maple...10/10 (Posted on 2014-07-22)
My family loves it!Review by Jeannette
We really enjoy this tea! I am so glad we can buy it over the internet and don't have to go all the way from Alberta to Victoria to get it. (Posted on 2014-04-03)
Good stuffReview by Sherry
I usually find flavored black teas disappointing because the type of tea used isn't the best. This tea doesn't have that problem. There's a definite maple background and no bitterness. I hope it will be available year-round. (Posted on 2013-12-09)
A sweet, full bodied black tea that evokes a deep, sense of well being.Review by Joybilee Farm
I brought 8 oz of this tea back from a trip to Victoria, BC and my college age daughter has claimed it. It's a delicious, sweet tea that reminds me of the fist-size maple sugar candies of my childhood in Ontario. I'm glad to see that Murchies has an online store, because I'll definitely need to buy more of this tea. It's become a mandatory part of my winter afternoons, on the snowy mountains of BC.

Craving something sweet and warm?Review by MR
This tea is sure to do the trick. The maple flavour actually tastes authentic, but doesn't overpower the cranberry and apple. Highly recommend this after raking up the fall leaves! (Posted on 2013-10-30)
Yum!Review by Joleen
Tried out sugar maple today and my only regret is I didn't buy more! Naturally sweet, full flavor.... Might be the best tea I have ever smelt or tasted... 10/10. Thank you! (Posted on 2013-09-17)

Strength Ratings

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 Ratings

This rating method indicates the strength of flavour each tea has when brewed according to our brewing guide.

RATING
           
RATING PROFILE
Light/Delicate Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Light/Delicate: Very light in colour and delicate in flavour
Medium Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium: Medium-light cup with slightly fuller cup
Medium-Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium-Strong: Medium-dark cup, medium body, and full flavour without harshness
Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Strong: Full body, rich cup, takes milk well
Very Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Very Strong: Rich, dark cup with very full, strong flavour and briskness

 


Coffee Ratings

We 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


Brewing Guides

Brewing Guide | Murchie's Tea & Coffee

Tea Brewing Guide

Different types of teas should be brewed according to certain times and water temperatures to bring out their best flavours. Use this guide as a starting point, and then experiment until you find the perfect brewing method for your favourite tea.

Based on approximately one level teaspoon (2.5g) of loose tea or one tea bag per 6-8 ounce (180-240ml) cup. For stronger flavour, add more tea. Brewing for longer may increase the strength of the tea, but will likely also cause bitterness.

Brew times shown in minutes.



Coffee Brewing Guide

The simplest methods for brewing coffee are drip coffee, pour over and French press. These guidelines are a starting point; modify the ratio of coffee to water, the grind, and brewing time to your taste. If your coffee is not strong enough, increase the proportion of coffee per cup of water, grind the beans finer, or allow them to brew longer – or any combination of these factors. If your coffee is too strong, simply do the opposite.

Drip coffee or pour over method: hot water is gradually poured over coffee grounds and slowly drips through
      • Fine to medium grind coffee
      • 1.5 to 2.5 tablespoons of coffee per cup of water

French press: coffee grounds are ‘steeped’ in hot water, and then a filter presses down the grounds, allowing the finished coffee to be poured off
      • Coarse grind coffee
      • 1 to 1.5 tablespoons of coffee per cup (e.g. 4-6 tbsp for a 4-cup French press)
      • Pour about 1/3 of the water over the coffee grinds; wait about 30 seconds and then pour in the rest
      • Wait 4-5 minutes, then push down the plunger to separate the grounds from finished coffee, and enjoy!
