Tea of Nepal

Located north-east of India, Nepal is situated along the Himalayas, and shares a very similar growing climate and production technique Darjeeling. The resulting cup of tea bares a striking resemblances, many of the same characteristic muscatel grape flavours that makes Darjeeling so sought after. Tea growing in the region began in 1837, and has only grown since then, taking off in the 1970s. Although Nepal ranks only the top 20 or so tea producing countries, in recent years it has produced some outstanding hand-crafted offerings, branching out of black teas into white, oolong and greens.

Earl's Gold

A must-try from our Premium Tea category, Earl's Gold takes its name from its striking golden tips, the result of careful plucking and processing. The aroma leads with fresh bergamot, followed by lingering honey. The cup is at the same time bold and subtle, a robust blend of Assam and Yunnan, making it a complex and hearty breakfast blend that stands up well to milk.

Tea Cocktail Recipes!

Blackberry CocktailThere's nothing we love more in summer than dreaming up fun seasonal recipes for our favourite teas. To be honest, we're actually thinking of tea recipes all year long! But in summer, there's nothing more satisfying and easy to make than a perfect tea cocktail. And one in-hand on a sunny patio? Perfection! We're currently loving these cocktails using a tea from each category, Black, Green, Rooibos and Oolong.

Murchie's Iced Tea at Home

A make-ahead, big-batch pitcher of iced tea to keep you hydrated throughout the day or a quick brew recipe to pour into your travel mug and head out the door. Here are two iced tea recipes just in time for warmer days.

Peach Passion White Sangria

Murchie's White SangriaServe this white Sangria at every dinner party or backyard bbq all summer long. Variations of this fruity wine punch can be found throughout Spain, typically made with red wine. There's always wine and fruit, but adding Peach Passion tropical herbal tea is our new personal preference. The fruit is often oranges and apples, but in this version peach or pineapple chunks mimic and enhance the tropical tea and naturally occurring notes in the white wine. Soak the fruit in the tea and sugar so they get nice and sweet and top up with wine. Serve with plenty of ice cubes. This summer sipper is great with grilled meats or a late brunch - it's pretty much brunch, lunch or dinner approved.
