Featuring the flavour of fresh lemon on rich Ceylon, Darjeeling, Keemun, and Nepal black teas, Lemon Tea is a welcome addition to our popular line of juicy, fruit flavoured tea blends. The sunny citrus flavour in this blend is uplifting and makes for a great cuppa when in need of an afternoon boost. A burst of fresh lemon is the first thing you will notice at first sip, enhanced and softened by herbal notes of lemon myrtle and rounded out by the black tea base.
Lemon Tea is excellent as a hot tea, but is also perfect brewed for a traditional iced tea. It can be enjoyed neat or with the addition of milk and sweetener.
A great replacement for lemon spice Review by ['Mark']
Much like Philippa, I absolutely loved the old lemon spice, and was quite disappointed when it was discontinued. Fortunately, this new one rises to fill that hole beautifully. It hasn't got the spices of the old lemon spice, (unsurprisingly) but it's got a bit more body in the tea itself to help balance the brightness of the lemon. It's just a superb mix.Posted on 2021-01-24
New but old Review by Philippa
I was dedicated to Murchie's lemon spice tea and was devastated when it was discontinued. I waited in anticipation when I found out there was something in the works... and was delighted to find that this new tea has the same flavour and essence as the old flavour! It's hard to find a lemon flavoured black tea and this one ticks all the boxes! My go to tea in the morning.Posted on 2020-05-13
Too Good For My Own Good Review by Issy
Just tried this tea with a bit of stevia and macadamia nut milk. It tastes like a delicious lemon dessert from my childhood with notes of lemon (the fruit, not lemongrass or lemon balm), something reminiscent of a cake or tea biscuit, and nostalgia. Thanks to COVID-19, my summer job is likely cancelled, but that probably won't stop me from ordering an exorbitant amount of this tea. Absolutely delicious!Posted on 2020-03-23
Very pleased with the lemon Review by Ryan
I'm not a fan of tea bags, but after having a cup, I have to say this one's a real keeper. It has a nice strong lemon aroma that really compliments the tea and tastes great.Posted on 2020-02-12

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 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!
