- A favoriteReview by Seattle
- At first glance, I thought I'd written the WinnipegFan review because my thoughts are the same. This tea is a perfect, naturally sweet, medium blend that takes well to a splash of milk (essential to my tea!). The maple flavor is like a hint of vanilla and caramel. It's now a staple on my shelf.

- Delicious but a tad weakReview by Newfan
- Beautiful aroma and flavour. I add milk and sugar for a sweet dessert tea. I need two tea bags steeped for around 4 minutes for a stronger flavour. Finding one tea bag for 6 oz of hot water is too weak. (Posted on 2016-01-01)
- Nice tastingReview by Lola
This is a very nice tasting tea. As soon as you open the box you get a beautiful aroma of maple. Pleasant and not overwhelming, just right.
It's almost desert! I'll be ordering it again. (Posted on 2014-11-26)
- ImpressedReview by Rowena
- I was overwhelmed by the smell of the maple when I opened the box and was almost turned off. But to my surprise I ended up really liking it! It is very smooth. I usually like my tea plain but saw the review above and tried it with milk and it's good either way. Quite tasty. (Posted on 2014-09-05)
- Yummy!Review by MurchiesWinnipegFan
- I bought some of this tea in the fall, and it has fast become one of my favorites when I'm looking for something different. It is smooth & sweet, with a hint of maple. It is naturally sweet, so no additional sugar or sweetner is needed. I also drink my tea with milk, so this gives the maple a creaminess all to itself. The maple gives this a uniquely Canadian twist. But you don't have to be a Canuck to enjoy it! This tea is going to become one of Murchie's classics! (Posted on 2014-03-12)

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|
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
• 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!
