A fine black tea, blended with elder flowers and strawberry pieces to evoke the imagery of a strawberry field in harvest. The clear, smooth base of Ceylon and Keemun black teas enhances the sweet strawberry flavour.
Light and sweet, this is a great tea to serve to guests hot or iced.

Awesome Iced Tea w/Orange Juice Review by ['George P Drinks T']
Try this chilled with 4 parts iced strawberry tea and 1 part orange juice. The sweetness of the OJ takes the edge off the iced tea (so additional sugar is not needed) and there is something about the citrus juice that brings out an intense strawberry flavour. The sum is greater than the parts.Posted on 2021-07-26

Delicious! Review by ['Shannon']
Every time I place my regular order for Murchie's Apricot tea I like to add in a small sample of one of their other offerings. Usually it turns out to be a one-time deal, not because the tea isn't good, its just that I keep coming back to Apricot. This time, I included a small bag of Strawberry and holy smoke, did it deliver an incredibly good pitcher of iced tea. A nice, strong black tea with a beautiful, natural strawberry taste and perfect sweet-tart balance. What a nice surprise with the onset of a dreary, Northwest winter. My husband also loves it--both hot and iced. A winner and we will be ordering this again. Thanks, Murchie's!Posted on 2020-12-28

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!
