The Editors' Association Of Canada's 2011 National Conference was held in Vancouver, BC and Murchie's was asked to create a blend serve to their delegates.

We created a smooth, medium blend of black Ceylon, Keemun and Yunnan with sweet honey notes to honour the event and the distinguished guests.

Ingredients: Black tea (Yunnan, Keemun, Ceylon)

Caffeine Caffeinated
Cup Strength Strong
Origin Blend
Tea Format Tea Bags
Type Black

Well balanced  Review by  DD

I love the depth of smooth flavor without being too rich. If you pick one tea to take on a trip, Editors' Blend would be it. (I always keep a few tea bags in my purse to avoid the poor selection in to-go shops and the office.) The well balanced flavor is perfect anytime of day. It has enough flavor for a morning cup and yet isn’t too overpowering for the afternoon. I like that it can stand on its own or go well with food. (I'm also an Earl Grey fan and dislike teas with Jasmine.)

Great tea!  Review by  Emily

This is an excellent tea! I wish it came in 100 count boxes.

Very nice  Review by  Dee

Editor's Blend is very smooth and tasty, and while the Keemun (my fave) shines through I enjoy the balance of the other teas blended with it. My new 2nd-favourite!

Excellent black tea blend  Review by  tally

Editor's Blend is another big winner for me: smooth, not tannic, great balanced, neutral flavor; this blend works for me any time of day. I like this blend in tea bag form for convenience, and I can usually reuse a bag for another 2 cups of tea without loss of flavor. Great everyday tea; very recommended.

Favourite Everyday Tea  Review by  Kathryn

Editors' blend is a great everyday tea because it's not too strong and not too weak. It has a lovely flavour and it is easy to drink, that's why we have one every night after dinner.

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.

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 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!
