Delicious! Review by David
I love lemon curd in the morning and usually went with the stuff in the grocery store - until I discovered Murchie's product. Prefectly creamy and tart with no bitterness, this is the lemon curd I use to judge all others. It tastes so natural. I am buying extra because my wife loves it too! Good pricing for international shipping.Posted on 2021-03-16
BEST. LEMON CURD. EVER. Review by Cheezwiz
Being a fan of all things lemon, I have sampled many lemon curds from stores and farmers markets all over the place. Most of them aren't quite right - not tart enough, too sweet, artificial tasting etc. I can honestly say Murchie's Lemon Curd is absolutely the most delicious I've ever tried, and it beats out most of the home-made versions I've had as well. It can go in/on all kinds of things: tart shells, puff pastry, as a cake filling, a spread on scones, on and on. It's always fresh and tart tasting - nothing artificial in this - you can even see tiny bits of rind mixed in. I'm a bit worried because it's been out of stock for awhile now. Murchie's please, please, NEVER stop making this stuff!Posted on 2016-04-04
Something special Review by MGS
Easily my favourite lemon curd. Even better than the storied British brands. This buttery and creamy treat is wonderful on scones, blueberry muffins and French toast.Posted on 2014-09-26
Luscious and Heavenly! Review by Karen
This is WITHOUT A DOUBT the finest, most delectable Lemon Curd in the entire world!! It is such an incredible treat! Although I wish we lived in B.C. so we could frequent Murchie's in person to enjoy this lemon curd on their home-baked scones, I'm so happy that Murchie's delivers internationally. We couldn't possibly have enough of Murchie's Lemon Curd stocked in our cupboards, as it disappears in a flash! We love this product and we love Murchie's! THANK YOU!Posted on 2013-09-06
guilty pleasure! Review by Betty H - Murchie's team member
This is just amazing! I spied this being made fresh (by hand) the other day in our Richmond, BC kitchen and just had to give it a try. It reminds me of my mother's lemon meringue pie with a rich buttery creamy finish! Fabulous!Posted on 2012-06-14

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!
