Murchie's Golden Jubilee Tea is a rich, classic, true English black blend of Ceylon, Assam, Darjeeling, Himalayan and Keemun teas with a full body, enticing aroma and vibrant colour.
In 1993 Murchie's Tea and Coffee was granted its own Coat of Arms by the Chief Herald of Canada honouring 100 years of quality. It was first featured adorning the boxes of the Golden Jubilee commemorative tea blend, and is still used today.

This Tea is Very Very Good Review by ['davej']
I bought some of the Golden Jubilee loose tea in the pretty blue tin. It is very smooth with a touch of milk - not harsh at all. It doesn't overwhelm at all. I brew mine a bit stronger than recommended. I use 12 grams of loose tea for 20 oz (600 ml) of finished product. I brew for 4 minutes with 208 degree water. The 20 oz fits nicely into two Murchie's 1894 bone china tea mugs. I am very pleased with this purchase and am very impressed with the tea.Posted on 2021-04-06
Very mild Review by Skye
Overall, this tea is smooth and mild, bordering a bit on the bland side for my taste. I prefer my teas to be slightly more robust in flavour. However, if you are looking for something mild and inoffensive for a gentle and relaxing cuppa, this blend is pleasant enough.Posted on 2020-09-17
A yummy black tea Review by cmp1226
I purchased this tea to add to my Royal collection and ad to my tea tin collection. I love the royal blue tin with the description on the back side and the flavor on the front. I nice black tea, not as strong as the Prince a Charles blend. I do enjoy drinking this tea.Posted on 2018-04-09
So wonderful Review by teacup
This tea is without a doubt the best I have ever tasted. Smooth with the slightest bit of natural sweetness. Whenever I am at Murchie's I am sure to stock up.Posted on 2017-03-19
An exceptional blend, perfect anytime Review by Holin
I have been drinking Golden Jubilee for many years now, and it has become my favorite blend. It compares beautifully to the best English teas. Full-bodied but smooth, it never goes bitter. American friends who say they don't like tea are surprised and delighted; English tea drinkers find a satisfying cuppa. This tea is one of the best!Posted on 2015-11-23

Best Tea Ever Review by Envie de France
Without a doubt Golden Jubilee Tea is the best blend of black tea I have ever tasted. It is more than just a good stand by. It is the 'sine qua non' of quality tea drinking!Posted on 2014-10-30
Classic Review by Juli
When I get tired of drinking fruit or flavoured tea, I always come back to the Golden Jubilee. It is the smoothness and straightforwardness of this tea that makes it so perfect. I love it.Posted on 2013-09-24
Lovely Review by Mabel
One of my favourites; excellent with a spot of milk. I like it even better than the much touted Diamond Jubilee.Posted on 2013-04-07

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!
