A sweet blend of black teas and the fresh picked taste of ripe raspberries. Amazingly fragrant, the fine, smooth black tea is a perfect base for juicy raspberry taste!
Originally blended: 1980's

Nothing tastes like summer more than the just picked tastes of raspberries. Tangy and sweet with a well rounded flavour and soft fruit aroma.
Raspberry leaves and red cornflower petals make this blend as sweet to look at as it is to taste.

Too good to forget! Review by Native Californian! Loves you
I just found this tea in my freezer! I visited Victoria the year of 2009 and loved everything about this beautiful charming part of our world! I visited my in-laws relatives and they served us up this amazing tasting tea! I just focused on it being in our freezer after all these many past years. I decided to make a wonderful batch of suntea! It was still amazing the taste was yummy ! So good I've had to make a few more batches. It's been so perfectly refreshing in our heat wave of 106° -110° this past week. Now I have to order us up more. The only way it will last if I forget I have it! All my best memories of being in Victoria for Your Independence day July 1st. I truly miss you guys and everything else you are so fortunate to have! Someday in my dreams....I would LOVE TO LIVE THERE!Posted on 2017-09-01
Long-time favorite Review by Martina
We have been buying this tea from Murchies for about 10 years & still love it. Nice & "rasberry-y", very pleasant cup, or 2 or 3! We enjoy it straight up at breakfast.Posted on 2017-01-20

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!
