A smooth blend of Murchie's Ceylon and Keemun teas with Lavender petals and a touch of Bergamot
The clear smooth base of the Ceylon enhances the flavour of the soothing lavender – great for relaxation.

Perfect cup! Review by ['Alison']
Want a tea for rainy afternoons or while reading a book? This is the one for you. The lavender brings a nice calming floral note to a traditional Earl Grey. Perfect on its own, or as a tea latte!Posted on 2021-01-26
No question it's the best Review by Janet
There is absolutely no other tea I've tried as good as this. I live in Las Vegas, NV and thankful I can order this tea online in a 1 pound bag in loose tea form. It has just the right amount of lavender and black tea flavor. You will NOT be disappointed.Posted on 2014-11-04
Simply Lovely Review by Lena
I discovered lavender tea in London when Twinnings put out floral special editions, and I was in love. I love earl grey, love bergamot, but lavender just adds that extra fragrance that elevates it all. I brought a box home but it quickly ran out, and was this close to ordering from overseas when I thought I should try what we have here at home. I was not wrong to do some exploring. This tea is fragrant and delicate and hits the right notes; and it's much better, and cheaper, than bagged tea dust from across the ocean. The only thing is Twinnings had more bergamot, which I wish this did. Not a huge loss. Now I'm off to try some teas with rose, jasmine, and orange blossom, to complete the series. Enjoy!Posted on 2013-10-15
Mini-spa in a cup. Review by wing
Brews up an aromatic and smooth cup of tea. The lavender makes this cup of tea sooooooo relaxing. Love it. Mini-spa in a cup. Wish I had bought more than the 10 bag sampler box while we were in Victoria.Posted on 2013-04-22
Lovely in a Victoria Fog! Review by arlinet
I bought several boxes of Lavender Tea after treating myself to a Victoria Fog at Murchie's on Government Street. Seeing two tea bags floating in the foam I was afraid it would be strong and bitter (as would have been the case with a London Fog using Earl Gray tea) ... but it was just lovely!! It is a very smooth tea. Back home in Saskatoon I will be making many more London Fogs!!Posted on 2013-01-09

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!
