A Murchie's trademark blend of green and black tea was chosen to honour the official opening of Vancouver's Library Square in May of 1995. This special blend has been a customer favorite for years!
Anything but boring, and as great as the classics in literature!

- Library BlendReview by Debbie
This is by far my favourite English tea. I have had it often at Wedding & Baby showers. Must drink out of a china cup, tastes much better!

- not a personal favoriteReview by tally
- While Murchie's does a great job with all their green/black blends, this one is not to my taste. It is a bit too harsh and tannic for me, especially compared to my preferred teabag blends, (e.g., Editor's Choice, CBC Radio). However, if you like that bit of "bite" to your teas, this could be the blend for you. (Posted on 2016-02-20)

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|
