Originally blended in 1981 to commemorate the Royal Wedding of Charles and Diana, this blend is regal in its strength and depth of flavour. A touch smoky and astringent, the infusion is beautifully robust and dark.

Great breakfast tea  Review by  TC

Highly recommend this tea as a breakfast alternative to English Breakfast Tea. A little different than English Breakfast, almost floral tea that has quite a range of pleasant and unique flavors with different steeping times. Originally I steeped it for 5 minutes, but for my taste buds it really shines at 7 minutes. It is good on its own or with a splash of milk.

I love this tea. It's my every day tea and my special tea too. It never gets bitter and is simply delicious. Perfect blend.

When I drink this, I'm transported to England (Sorry, Canada). There is no better blend.

Prince Charles Tea  Review by  ['Scouter Alaska']

Have been using this as my go to tea for many years, I drink it black, make it in the morning in my large thermos and drink it all day long pouring it into my travel mug, This lovely tea does not get bitter when left to brew in my thermos. My Stanley thermos keeps my tea hot for 24 hours and it is as good as it was first brewed with no bitter taste.

Wonderful Stuff  Review by  ['Nate']

Discovered this one in the Royal Collection boxed set, and proceeded to use it all up first (though the boxed set has many other wonderful teas as well). Smoky, deep and delicious. Really a great cup.

My absolute favorite!  Review by  Sandra

I have been drinking Prince Charles for 6 years, and though I also drink other teas as well, this is my favorite "go to" tea when I want a stong, flavorfull "cuppa". I never allow myself to run out of Prince Charles!

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 Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Light/Delicate: Very light in colour and delicate in flavour
Medium Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium: Medium-light cup with slightly fuller cup
Medium-Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium-Strong: Medium-dark cup, medium body, and full flavour without harshness
Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Strong: Full body, rich cup, takes milk well
Very Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee               Very Strong: Rich, dark cup with very full, strong flavour and briskness

Coffee Ratings

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

Brewing Guide | Murchie's Tea & Coffee

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
French press: coffee grounds are ‘steeped’ in hot water, and then a filter presses down the grounds, allowing the finished coffee to be poured off
  • 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!
