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.

Murchie's Afternoon Decaf

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend
Apr. 3rd, 2021

As decaf teas go, this was about the best I've had. I think I've found a new beverage to chug when I get a hankerin' for black tea before bedtime. Long a big fan of their traditional Murchie's Afternoon (formerly Empress Afternoon), I got this in a variety pack and didn't even open the box for months, afraid of disa...

Picture of Canada 150 Blend Tea Bags

Here's a new blend style for me: green, black and oolong. As the name indicates, Murchie's first produced this to commemorate Canada's 150th anniversary, and it apparently gained enough of a following to keep going as a sale offering. Fittingly, it also is faintly maple flavored—much less so than any of Murchie's ...

Have you ever walked into the lobby of a tire shop, and noted its distinctive aroma of freshly manufactured tire rubber? That was my immediate impression of the taste/scent blend upon drinking this tea, and I can't shake it. It's as if someone liquefied that air in a tire store, and stirred it into a tea. The websit...

Prince Charles isn't among most heavily advertised teas in the large assortment Murchie's carries, but maybe it should be. It was, according to the website, "originally blended in 1981 to commemorate the Royal Wedding of Charles and Diana." Good thing this tea long outlasted that marriage!

The dry bag gave a sharp...

Jan. 8th, 2021

My wife is trying to cut back caffeine intake, and had me include this offering in the latest virtual "Murchie's run" that we do a time or two per year. And being a big fan of both happy marriages and the $CAD---->$USD exchange rates the last few years, I did not object.

Now that I've tried the tea, I'm glad that I...
