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.Posted on 2023-12-17
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!Posted on 2022-11-17
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.Posted on 2021-07-21
These are, hands down, the very best scones I have ever made or tasted. The blueberry scones were absolutely delicious, easy to make! I will buy these again and again with my tea orders!!Posted on 2021-04-14
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!Posted on 2020-11-20

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.

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.
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:
|More acidity, brightness and a slight pucker
|Slightly richer flavours, some acidity, enhanced creaminess
|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:
|Easy to drink with little lingering flavour, ‘thin’ or ‘clean’ feeling on the palate
|Heavier, creamier mouth-feel with more lingering flavour
|Rich, full-mouth feeling: hits all of the palate and lingers
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.
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
