Bright, sunny and cheerful! From the colour of the cup to the flavour on your tongue, this spice-based caffeine-free tisane is a great way to chase away low spirits and dark wintery days.

Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant, whose roots are widely used in South Asia to colour and add spice to dishes.

This is a great chai alternative for those who love spice, but are looking to avoid caffeine. The longer you steep this tea, the stronger the spices will become. If you’re a fan of strong spices, steep for up to 10 minutes.

Ingredients: Cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, pepper, turmeric.

Caffeine Caffeine-free
Cup Strength Medium-Strong
Origin Blend
Type Herbal/Rooibos

Perfection in a cup  Review by  ['Amber']

I swear this tea was one of the reasons I felt great for so long. Then when they went out of stock for a while I got a longer bout of sickness (clearly no foundation based on science, just pure self assumption). Perfect for comforting an upset stomach, or just for cozy winter day.

Wonderful taste!  Review by  ['Leisureguy']

Quite apart from health benefits (and the combination of turmeric and pepper is promising), this tea is very tasty and refreshing. This is definitely a tea I'll buy again — and in a larger quantity. I steeped for 5 minutes, and I'm going to try 8 minutes for the next pot.

Awesome!  Review by  ['Upstate NY']

I tried this blend of turmeric because I had previously enjoyed golden milk at a coffee bar. This blend is so much better! It is bright and warm and does not have a sharp turmeric taste, but it has a lovely aftertaste. I add about 1/4 tsp maple cream and it is Perfect! I am disappointed that right now it says this is unavailable in all sizes. I hope it returns soon! It is totally worth the shipping price to the US!

Turmeric content is minimal  Review by  ['Not Impressed']

The turmeric content is minimal because as a powder, it settled to the bottom of the package. The other ingredients are quite chunky.

Delicious!  Review by  Mari

I'm not a fan of turmeric's taste, but I do want to drink it for its health benefits. I tried this one, and I must say, it is delicious. Highly recommended.

Magic tea  Review by  Koo

This tea has an extraordinary taste which I find more soothing than any chai tea mixture. Turmeric spice has a lineage not many spices possess. A joy to drink after dinner.

My New Favorite Delicious Cure-All  Review by  eeo

I picked up this tea when in the shop in Victoria and have been making it most evenings since. It's great for inflammation-related pain and is soothing for the cold, wet winter. Absolutely delicious. Ordering more!

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!
