In Love with this TEA!!Review by Lisa
Tried a sample at the store and fell in love with it! I only wish I had purchased more at the time. If you like a subtle almond coconut flavour you will love this tea. (Posted on 2016-11-20)
Christmas FavoriteReview by Debra
Ordered my Snowflake tea and other things on Cyber Friday. I love this time of year and always look forward to this wonderful tea to make the Christmas season that more special! Thank you Murchies for bringing my favorite tea back year after year and Merry Christmas! (Posted on 2015-12-05)
Back for more!Review by Debra
Back again this year for my snowflake tea. I've already had my pound of tea delivered but with Cyber Friday had to come back for more. When it's cold outside and I am sitting on my couch with a cup of this tea it's wonderful. I can't say enough about my favorite tea. If you love almond and coconut you have to give it a try. It's like a warm hug on a cold day!

Best Tea EverReview by Debra
I just received my order from Murchie's and I ordered the Snowflake tea for the 1st time. I only ordered the 2oz size to try and I LOVE THIS TEA. I have tried a lot of tea's over the years and I have to say this is by far my favorite. It's not a cheap tea but once I tasted it I knew I had to come back and order a pound of it to get me through the winter. You can taste the coconut and almond and it's like a dessert in a tea cup. I have visited Victoria several time and Murchie's is a place my mom and I go several times while visiting. I have a girlfriend that has never visited Canada so for this Christmas she is receiving a Murchie's Christmas. She is getting the Christmas Coffee, Christmas Tea, the Hot Chocolate and a Victoria Tea cup from the accessories. I sent it with a card telling her I was giving her a taste of Victoria for Christmas. I know she will enjoy her gift as much as I have enjoyed Murchies for the last 32 years. If ordering your tea and coffee please try the Snowflake tea, you won't be sorry. (Posted on 2013-12-16)

Strength Ratings

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 Guides

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!
