The chestnut flavour is nutty and creamy with a sweet, caramelized sugar finish. This tea has a rich, well-rounded base of black teas: smooth enough to drink neat, and strong enough to make a creamy fireside treat when milk is added.
Roasted chestnuts are a long-time tradition and favourite winter treat in southern Europe as well as North America. Chestnuts are harvested in the autumn when they ripen and fall from chestnut trees. With their thick hull they keep well through the cold months, ready to be roasted on an open fire.
Ingredients: Black tea, almond slivers, natural and artificial flavouring.
Allegen warning: Contains nuts.

Smooth and nutty Review by ['Stacey']
This tea is wonderfully smooth and nutty. The flavour reminds me of hot chocolate, making this a good substitute on the days I want hot chocolate but not all the sugar.Posted on 2020-12-31

A++ Review by Kandi
A very distinct black tea with delicious nutty flavor. This is my favorite tea from Murchies. I have never found another company who makes a chestnut tea that is even closen in comparison.Posted on 2019-11-07
Delicious, full bodied tea Review by Chime
This tea is delicious. I am a lover of creamed earl grey but not most blends - such as strawberry, orange, etc. I find that they smell nice but really they just tastes like a nothing special black tea. The roast chestnut tea though is different - the smell is great but the taste is even better. Full bodied, a just a little special. Excellent for the afternoon with a good book or good friends. Worth giving it a try.Posted on 2015-11-30

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!
