Murchie's Earl Grey Cream is a blend of fine Ceylon, Darjeeling and Keemun teas, lightly scented with real oil of bergamot and sweet vanilla.
A rich and creamy version of our original Earl Grey. Makes a delicious latte.

My Favourite Review by Carmen
I'm from Ontario and Earl Grey has been always been my favourite tea. My boyfriend who is from Victoria got me this as a gift and it has since become my favourite tea of all time. Murchie's tea has exceptional quality and it's all for a very affordable price. This tea and Murchie's are both amazing and they will never disappoint!Posted on 2018-07-20
Another Great Tea Review by Debra
My favorite tea from Murchies I found 36 years ago on my first trip to beautiful Victoria was Earl Grey. I found Murchies to have the best I had ever tasted. Three years ago I found the Snowflake tea that has become my Christmas favorite. I recently ordered the new Earl Grey Cream tea and was not disappointed. Just a little twist on their wonderful Earl Grey. If regular Earl Grey is a little to strong for you give this a try the vanilla tones it down just a bit. Munchies has the best tea and I was so glad when they started the flat rate shipping to the U.S..Posted on 2016-01-01

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!
