Many customers who frequented Murchie's Robson Street store in the 1960's and 1970's would often vacation in Palm Springs. They would venture off with their Murchie's Tea in tow, and return complaining that it did not taste right; it was weak, with no taste at all.
So, Murchie's created a tea blend that would stand up to the hard water found in the desert... thus creating the Palm Springs Blend.

- Murchie's Hidden Gem! Review by Petroushka
- In our household, 'Palm Springs' beats even the popular Murchie's No.10 blend. It's a Murchie's treasure that apparently hasn't been discovered by all. A complex, aromatic, highly satisfying taste that's just right with just about everything. If you've never tried it until now, I highly recommend you do! (Posted on 2014-08-06)

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|
