Murchie's Diamond Jubilee Tea has been specially blended to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's reign, we have taken the finest quality Ceylon, Darjeeling, Assam and Yunnan teas and brought them together for this special tea.
Rich and full bodied with malty and muscatel undertones, this tea has a very smooth finish and is sure to be a hit for many special celebrations.
Ingredients: black tea
1 bag for 250mL water 100C, steeped 4 minutes 15 seconds, drunk bare. Dry tea bag aroma: coppery Ceylon and faintest pepper. Liquor: copper. not much fragrance beyond wet earth. Oh. Oh oh oh, this is good, gorgeously balanced: Assam giving malt, heft, and body, Ceylon being all coppery bright, Darjeeling making that even brighter, with just the finestest peppery bite of Yunnan. No bitterness. Despite not being aromatic, this is a delicous blend.Posted on 2019-01-09
I love this tea...it has bold flavor without being bitter...it sparkles just like a diamond!. I turned 60 this past year and decided that this was my Diamond Jubilee year so I start each day with a cup of this tea...sets me up right.Posted on 2018-01-11
This wonderful tea saved me when stranded in the middle of a storm on the West Coast Trail. I am a true tea granny and don't usually have my tea without milk but given the circumstances I had to drink it black and this tea was so tasteful and not bitter tasting at all. Thank you Murchie's for this lovely alternative to my usual standard black tea. I enjoy it often as a treat.Posted on 2016-07-08
I've been drinking this blend for a few years now, since getting the small 10-bag sampler. A touch bolder than the Golden Jubilee blend, but a very lovely breakfast or mid-afternoon-break tea nonetheless. I add a bit of milk and honey. Since moving away from Victoria, I'm very glad I can buy this online!Posted on 2016-03-02

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.
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:
|More acidity, brightness and a slight pucker
|Slightly richer flavours, some acidity, enhanced creaminess
|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:
|Easy to drink with little lingering flavour, ‘thin’ or ‘clean’ feeling on the palate
|Heavier, creamier mouth-feel with more lingering flavour
|Rich, full-mouth feeling: hits all of the palate and lingers
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.
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
