About Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd is a Vancouver-based tea and coffee company, founded in 1894 as a family company. In 2007, Murchie's was purchased by Victoria-based company Belmont Management, a privately-owned company primarily involved in property management. Gwen Murchie stepped down as president but continued to consult with the new management.[1] The new ownership has expressed a desire to hold the company for the long-term, and has invested considerable money in it, and has also undertaken efforts to reduce employee turnover.[2]

The company has six retail stores in Victoria and Vancouver, and sells most of its teas by mail-order. Murchie's carries mostly loose teas, and has mostly black teas and blends although it also sells green and oolong teas. Many of their teas are also available in teabags.

Mango Green

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend
Sep. 25th, 2018

If you like both mango and green tea, you can't go wrong here. From my time in South Florida, eating mangoes fresh off co-workers' trees, it has been one of my favorite fruits and flavors. Murchies consistently cranks out delicious tea varieties; the other flavored green of theirs I've tried, blueberry, is a househol...

While periodically ordering our regularly consumed teas from Murchie's, I'll sometimes go after a small sample of a new tea, just to try something different, since they do have a huge selection. The name intrigued me (purple tea?), as did the origin, in some of the highest-elevation tea-growing areas of Kenya.

I'm not much for tea reviewing (and I don't really care about aroma in a tea?) but this one is a favorite of mine. To my taste this is slightly weaker Yorkshire Gold perfect for the mid-day.

Fans of unabashedly fruity teas, this one's for you. Get some today. "Sweetheart" is well worth giving love, though in a somewhat unexpected way.

While on their website replenishing stocks of other Murchie's teas, I saw this new loose blend, checked the ingredients (including the pieces of coconut visible in the ph...

Tea-flavor blends are like marriages: a wide spectrum of compatibilities and results, from the "opposites attracted" who somehow live happily-ever-after to the seemingly alike soulmates on the road to disastrous divorce, vice versa, and every outcome in between.

In that context, leave it to a Canadian tea company...
