Good but had to add flour  Review by  ['EM']

Gorgeous and fluffy scones. I added chopped dried apricot. The only thing…my dough was extremely sticky. I had to add quite a bit of flour (1/2 cup). Got the dough just workable enough to slice into triangles with a bread knife. I never could have cut scones with a biscuit cutter as suggested on the box.

Very nice scones  Review by  ['Liz']

These were quick to put together, and so nice and light. We got the blueberry, and I would add more blueberries or currants next time, as the fruit package was a bit small. Delicious scones though!

More than pleased with my order!  Review by  Margaret

I couldn't believe my order it arrived today and I only ordered it yesterday! I am very familiar with the #10 Blend and the Afternoon Blend but anxious to try the Ms Grey and Spiced Orange. I've had #10 since I was a little girl. My mother first bought it on her honeymoon and always kept it around. I love Twinings Lady Grey and I expect this will be even better. I had to taste an Earl Grey Shortbread and a bit of the Blueberry Orange Marmalade. Both are yummy! I am so anxious to bake the scones because I have no doubt that they will go beyond my expectations. I definitely will be ordering more of everything in the future.

fabulous gift!  Review by  Lynn

I sent a box of these scones to my mother-in-law for Mother's Day, along with a selection of teas and some lemon curd - she raved about everything's but she still talks about the scone mix. She said they were the best scones she's ever had - light, fluffy and delicious! We will be buying more of these for Christmas gifts this year!

Best Scones Ever  Review by  Deb

I live in Califonia and have made 4 trips to Victoria BC and everytime I have to go to Murchies. I have to say Murchies Scones are the best I have ever had. They are best with the jam they have and the devon cream. I have had Murchies send the scone mix to my home as I have never found anything close to these. Murchies scones and Murchies Best coffee it's like having a little bit of Victoria in my home....

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!
