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.

Dazzled Review by Ribs
Murchies is my favorite, special place to visit. I had a lavender tea latte on my last visit and was so impressed that I also purchased lavender tea bags to make the latte at home. A really special treat!Posted on 2020-04-09
Delicious tea Review by Allison
I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the lavender tea, but I absolutely love it! It’s hands-down my favourite. It’s relaxing, cozy, tastes amazing, and is my go-to if I want a warm drink that makes me feel happy. I always add a bit of milk and honey since it’s a black tea, but it’s still very good without :)Posted on 2020-04-06
delightful cup of tea. Review by Libby
A recent vacation in Victoria landed me at the Murchies store where I took a chance and bought this tea. I'm home now and drinking it daily. I will definitely be ordering some more as it was delightful in the morning during this Fall season. It has flavor but not overpowering. The quality of the tea has substance. Definitely take a risk and try this tea.Posted on 2018-10-05
Lavender? Review by Paula
I was quite disappointed in this tea. I particularly wanted a lavender tea and I can't taste it here at all. I noticed it didn't smell at all like lavender when I opened the box, but hoped once it steeped it would be okay. Unfortunately not.Posted on 2018-08-06

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!
