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.

This is one of those uncommon tea blends that smells and tastes exactly as advertised—no hidden "flavours" (as it's spelled where sold), no surprises, no Trojan horses. That's a good thing, if you like a smoky rose tea with some fruity elements. Murchie's describes this as, "Evoking the atmosphere of a Victorian si...

As much Murchie's tea as I've ordered, chugged and rated, and as strongly as I love peppermint, this was only a matter of time. Usually, I get a quick box of somebody's peppermint tea (usually Celestial Seasonings, which I've rated highly) at a retail store and go with that. However, lately amid price inflation of al...

Looking over the large ingredients list for a loose tea (Keemun and Ceylon tea, cinnamon, ginger, fennel, cocoa nibs, cardamom seeds, roasted carob, Indian sarsparilla root, natural and artificial flavors), it seemed a little disjointed. I wasn't sure this was going to work. I'll assure that it does, very nicely.

For those who enjoy both coconut and almond, this seasonal tea should be heavenly. Sweetened enough, it's like marzipan candy in a teacup. I'm not a big fan of nuts in general, with almond probably being the one I can tolerate best, so the tea likely rates lower for me than it could otherwise. Still, the good news f...

Weird tea, but to me at least, pleasantly so! Connoisseurs of complex-flavored tea should like this, unless those flavors are not favorites. First off, the dry-leaf aroma (in the plastic sack), in-cup smell and taste are remarkably consistent with each other.

The hard part is describing what they are. I can see...
