Murchie's Ms Grey is a smooth black blend that is very easy to drink. The bergamot gives light, bright citrus flavour; hints of lemons and oranges makes us think of a villa in the south of France.
Ms. Grey has the same base blend of teas as Earl Grey (Ceylon, Darjeeling & Himalayan, and Keemun), but about half the bergamot: Darjeeling is an addition to Earl Grey that is fairly unique to Murchie’s, and makes this tea smooth and layered.
- Summer tip: Bergamot teas are great iced! Super refreshing with lemon, or even try them as an iced tea latte with sweetener and milk

Definitely a match for Lady Grey Review by ON Fan
This tea ticks all the boxes for strength and flavour match. I bought the bags to try out because when I tried Lady Grey it was the first time I really enjoyed tea and I wanted to see how it compared. It is actually very slightly stronger than Lady Grey, but still does not have the harshness of Earl Grey; instead it maintains the smoothness that I am finding is a trademark of Murchie's teas.Posted on 2019-02-07
Really great for fans of Twinings Lady Grey Review by MelonNet
I love Earl Grey citrus blends. My favorite tea is Twinings Lady Grey. I can only find it loose in one market. This Ms. Grey is as close as I've gotten to the Lady Grey in a different brand. I don't know if it has less bergamot than normal Earl Grey's but it definitely is good.Posted on 2015-01-28

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!
