My daily brew Review by Clare
Thrilled to discover this tea. Not normally a fan of rooibos tea, by as a lover of chai flavored teas, and wanting to explore caffeine reduction, this is a hit. I make it with a tablespoon of coconut milk (thick Aroy-D Brand, or coconut cream) and a drop of stevia. For a coffee-shop fancy drink equivalent, top with Gay Lea’s coconut whip cream.Posted on 2018-02-07
Best Rooibos ever! Rich Flavor. Review by Courthouse
I bought only 2oz when we were on vacation in Victoria, and I wish I had purchased more! I was not sure I would like the coconut in it, as I'm not a coconut fan. This tea blew me away, I loved it so much! Wonderful deep rich flavor, richer than most of the rooibos I have tried. Will definitely be ordering more. I drink it straight, but I'll have to try steeping it in milk for a different flavor.Posted on 2018-01-30
Best chai ever Review by Sheri
I'm not fond of conventional chai, too much clove or something. This one has the perfect balance of spices and other flavors, both sharp and naturally sweet. We drink it with milk. I think my son must drink it by the gallon because I bought 8 oz. a few months ago and am now buying a pound.Posted on 2017-11-24
Delicious Review by Cheryl
I did find this tea to be a bit spicy but when I mixed it with some traditional rooibos it was just the perfect mix for me!Posted on 2017-07-20
Love this tea for a treat Review by tea test

Best ever! Review by Georgene
I purchased 4 oz package on a great vacation in Victoria. I should have gone back to purchase more before leaving--it wasn't enough! I left the package with my daughter. She returned the rest (about a quarter of the bag) to me at Christmas time. I have now finished it, and cannot find a substitute in the States. Love it with a tiny bit of sweetener and a splash of cream. Ordering more!Posted on 2014-02-18
Delightful! Review by Ellie
Coconut! What a wonderful addition to the chai rooibos. We bought it on a mini vacation to Victoria and now I'm shopping the website for more.Posted on 2013-08-03
Fantastic! Addicted! Review by KatieMonoLk
I cannot tolerate caffeine, but love strong tea. This tea is incredible -- delicious, and very strong if you choose to brew it that way. The flavor is remarkable and unique. I am hooked and order sent to the U.S.Posted on 2013-03-19
Wonderful, deep flavor Review by AnnieOrkney
Nearly all herbal, caffeine free teas cannot satisfy this black tea lover. But this one does. The mix of rooibos, cinnamon, coconut with a chili kick is delicious after dinner, settles the stomach and won't keep you up at night. I'm so happy to have discovered it.Posted on 2012-12-06
Amazing Review by JennSF
So, I bought 2 oz on a quick trip to Victoria. This is the BEST flavored Rooibos I've ever tried. Comforting cinnamon, ginger, cloves and toasted coconut with a nice little kick of chili on the finish. Try this sweetened with honey and a splash of cream. You won't be disappointed.Posted on 2012-02-05

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!
