So very, very good. Review by Lisa
I am a big fan of Lapsang souchong tea but wanted something different to have a work. Truly this is one of the best teas I have ever had. The description accurately describes the taste. This tea brings joy to my work.Posted on 2019-04-18
Best tea I've had Review by Luke
This is the tea I've been looking for to replace coffee. Satisfying on levels that only tobacco and espresso have hit for me so far. I'd even go so far as to call it a 'manly tea', were it not a potentially exclusive term. This tea could be enjoyed by all.Posted on 2016-08-31
Elementary Review by Watson
Bought a 10 pack of this tea when I was in Canada back in July visiting family and as a Sherlock aficionado have savoured a couple of cups of this while watching my favourite detective. It is so Sherlock, that leather smell and taste with the tobacco is just perfect for drinking while watching or reading the worlds most illustrious private detective. It reminds me of a great well aged Whisky which would probably go with this tea perfectly. Hoping to get family or Murchies to send it direct to me in Australia.Posted on 2016-01-12
Accurate description Review by sherry
Sometimes it's difficult to determine from the description what a tea will taste like. In this case, the description is accurate. Baker Street is mild but complex and flavorful. The hint of smokiness does not overpower. The bergamot may add an underlying note, fortunately, almost undetectable. (I am not a fan of Earl Grey.) I'm now ordering my second box of 50 tea bags because the first went quickly. I drink it with milk and no sweetener.Posted on 2015-03-14

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!
