Smelled amazing! Review by Elle
Ooooh this tea is so wonderful. I'm usually very careful not to drink flavoured teas, but this one smelled like maple syrup, tasted like clear black tea, and had a wonderful mapel syrup after taste. It tricked my brain into thinking it was sweetened! Highly recommend!Posted on 2020-03-26
Fabulous Review by Tarahill
I was a bit worried this tea would be 'sweet' but it perfect. Lovely maple flavour but not overdone and nothing chemically or artificial in flavour. Love it. Already ordering more because I do not want to run out.Posted on 2019-11-25
I love Maple! Review by Erin
Another great maple tea from Murchie's (I'll admit to buying 2oz of each I could find: Maple Chai, Canadian Breakfast, Canada 150, and this)! It is a nice twist on a cup of black tea that makes it fun and exciting to drink. Another winner!Posted on 2018-07-17
My new favorite Review by Stellula
I don't usually like caramel-like flavors in my tea so I'm not too sure what inspired me to try this one out. I expected not to like it! But, boy am I grateful I did. The maple flavor is bold yet light, and isn't cloying. This tea is marvelous on its own, and has great breakfast food synergy, begging to be accompanied with eggs and buttery toast or croissants.Posted on 2018-03-27
Delish! Review by Stephanie
If you love maple this is the tea for you. When brewing it smells like someone has made a big plate of pancakes. It's delicious hot or cold,a touch of cream makes for a very decadent cup of tea.Posted on 2016-06-03
So good Review by Lola
Love, Love this tea. A flavoured tea that is actually full-bodied. I wish I had bought more. It's almost desert. Thank youPosted on 2014-10-17
Sugar Maple is very addictive! Review by Kos
This tea is amazing. I was surprised my husband commented how good it smelled and he was right. For once, I was glad he isn't a tea drinker otherwise I'd have to share! Love Maple...10/10Posted on 2014-07-23
My family loves it! Review by Jeannette
We really enjoy this tea! I am so glad we can buy it over the internet and don't have to go all the way from Alberta to Victoria to get it.Posted on 2014-04-03
Good stuff Review by Sherry
I usually find flavored black teas disappointing because the type of tea used isn't the best. This tea doesn't have that problem. There's a definite maple background and no bitterness. I hope it will be available year-round.Posted on 2013-12-10
A sweet, full bodied black tea that evokes a deep, sense of well being. Review by Joybilee Farm
I brought 8 oz of this tea back from a trip to Victoria, BC and my college age daughter has claimed it. It's a delicious, sweet tea that reminds me of the fist-size maple sugar candies of my childhood in Ontario. I'm glad to see that Murchies has an online store, because I'll definitely need to buy more of this tea. It's become a mandatory part of my winter afternoons, on the snowy mountains of BC.Posted on 2013-11-13
Craving something sweet and warm? Review by MR
This tea is sure to do the trick. The maple flavour actually tastes authentic, but doesn't overpower the cranberry and apple. Highly recommend this after raking up the fall leaves!Posted on 2013-10-30
Yum! Review by Joleen
Tried out sugar maple today and my only regret is I didn't buy more! Naturally sweet, full flavor.... Might be the best tea I have ever smelt or tasted... 10/10. Thank you!Posted on 2013-09-17

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!
