Traditional Ceylon, Keemun, Assam and Yunnan black teas form a well-rounded base, while Himalayan and Gunpowder teas add a light sparkle to the flavour and aroma. This is a great tea for people who want explore green-black blends without Jasmine.
Designed to evoke and an afternoon up of tea at a sunny outdoor cafe next to the Seine river in Paris: the city of light. Perfect for daydreaming and people-watching!

Perrrfecttt!!!! Review by Jo
This is my new favorite tea, for almost a year now, and I still enjoy every sip, drinking several cups a day in cool weather (with honey and milk). Even my husband really likes it (no milk) and we've found very few teas that rise to the top of both of our #1 hit charts like this one. However, I have to admit that I do have a sweet tooth and especially like caramel anything, though I find Paris Afternoon to have just the perfect subtle sweetness and flavor. If this sounds like your cup of tea, then please give it a try!Posted on 2021-12-06
A delightful surprise Review by ['Tiffany']
I'm not usually a fan of sweet teas, but I tried a small box because who wouldn't want to be in Paris in the afternoon. I made my first cup and settled into a bubble bath, and oh my god! Before I could even sip it, the aroma made my eyes roll back in my head. This tea is my new happy place. And it has rendered dessert an unnecessary indulgence. Buy some!Posted on 2021-04-10
Not my favourite Review by Meaghan
It's an okay tea. I got a box from a friend and had most of it, but personally, it's not the right kind of sweet for my tastes. I'd say it leans a little more butterscotch than caramel, but I'm not sure how genuine my ideas of those two flavours are as they're probably based on candy. To compare, I usually put a cube of raw sugar in my tea, but not in this one. I've a sweet tooth, but I find this tea *mostly* sweet enough on it's own.Posted on 2020-09-30

A flavored tea for flavored tea haters Review by Jeri
I normally avoid flavored teas, but I got this in the Afternoon Selection box. It's really good! The "hint of caramel" is very present but doesn't overwhelm or taste "artificial". With milk or cream it's a cozy winter sipper for any time of day.Posted on 2019-12-02

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!
