Murchie's Golden Jubilee Tea is a rich, classic, true English black blend of Ceylon, Assam, Darjeeling, Himalayan and Keemun teas with a full body, enticing aroma and vibrant colour.
In 1993 Murchie's Tea and Coffee was granted its own Coat of Arms by the Chief Herald of Canada honouring 100 years of quality. It was first featured adorning the boxes of the Golden Jubilee commemorative tea blend, and is still used today.

Favorite Blend!! Review by Sabrina
I've always loved English, or Irish Breakfast teas, but I tried this and absolutely fell in love. My friends have always thought I am strange because I much prefer a cup of sweet. creamy tea of an afternoon than a candy bar! I've been holding off on ordering this tea, thinking that the cost is more than the stuff I can get at the grocery - but I just did the math and it's actually cheaper!! And the flavor is so much better!!! I may need to set up a monthly subscription/delivery now that I've realized that!Posted on 2019-06-20
The nicest cup, befitting the Queen Review by Carolann
This is the smoothest, most balanced, nicest cup I have ever tasted. No bitterness at all, no matter how long it steeps. Perfection.Posted on 2019-01-24

A cup of comfort. Review by Katherine
I first tasted Murchie's "Golden Jubilee Tea" while on honeymoon in Victoria B. C. It continues to be my favorite tea, and my first choice when I need a warm comforting beverage. It has a pleasant fragrance, and upon brewing the aroma mingles with the flavor in an almost unbelievable smile inducing moment.Posted on 2016-01-25

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: 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|
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|
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
- 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!
