Sweet tea for cold days  Review by  ['Moose']

I absolutely love this tea. My go to Murchies are number 10 and cdc radio blend… but this tea is my favourite for cold days or a sweet breakfast likes crepes. If you’re doing a pot don’t skimp on the tea bags (or loose leaf tea) if you’re trying to make more tea, or a stronger tea, use more bags. Otherwise if you brew it longer, it will be more bitter and you’re going to miss out on the natural sweetness and perfect flavour. I turn my kettle off before it boils and brew for 3 minutes then I do a quick taste test.

Artificial tasting  Review by  ['Montreal']

Usually I love Murchie's teas but I found this tea rather disappointing. The maple flavour tastes overwhelmingly artificial.

Love this tea  Review by  Happy Tea Drinker

This is a delicious naturally sweet, great with a splash of milk (even dairy free milks taste good with this) tea. It is my favorite tea ever!

A favorite  Review by  Seattle

At first glance, I thought I'd written the WinnipegFan review because my thoughts are the same. This tea is a perfect, naturally sweet, medium blend that takes well to a splash of milk (essential to my tea!). The maple flavor is like a hint of vanilla and caramel. It's now a staple on my shelf.

Delicious but a tad weak  Review by  Newfan

Beautiful aroma and flavour. I add milk and sugar for a sweet dessert tea. I need two tea bags steeped for around 4 minutes for a stronger flavour. Finding one tea bag for 6 oz of hot water is too weak.

Nice tasting  Review by  Lola

This is a very nice tasting tea. As soon as you open the box you get a beautiful aroma of maple. Pleasant and not overwhelming, just right. It's almost desert! I'll be ordering it again.

Impressed  Review by  Rowena

I was overwhelmed by the smell of the maple when I opened the box and was almost turned off. But to my surprise I ended up really liking it! It is very smooth. I usually like my tea plain but saw the review above and tried it with milk and it's good either way. Quite tasty.

Yummy!  Review by  MurchiesWinnipegFan

I bought some of this tea in the fall, and it has fast become one of my favorites when I'm looking for something different. It is smooth & sweet, with a hint of maple. It is naturally sweet, so no additional sugar or sweetner is needed. I also drink my tea with milk, so this gives the maple a creaminess all to itself. The maple gives this a uniquely Canadian twist. But you don't have to be a Canuck to enjoy it! This tea is going to become one of Murchie's classics!

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!
