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 tea was more pleasant than interesting. I liked it a lot, but found it hard to write as much about it. I also thought it was slightly overpriced.

Dry leaf is very pretty (like many of Murchie's teas, their photo doesn't do it justice, so I took one of my own), with bright golden-orange tips against a dark backg...

Darjeeling Finest Blend

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend
Dec. 31st, 2018

This tea gets a B+ on quality and a C- on marketing and presentation. The name suggests it is a Darjeeling, but the description (and flavor) betrays that it is actually a blend of a Darjeeling and a Ceylon. I think this is a borderline shady marketing practice: Darjeeling is obviously the more prestigious name, so blen...

Assam Pure

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India
Dec. 20th, 2018

A rich, deep, dark Assam that was still quite smooth and able to be brewed strongly. Among my favorite teas I've sampled from Murchie's, this would be a great choice for an everyday breakfast tea.

The dry leaf of this has a mild but very pleasant smell, sort of deep, soft, a little foresty, with a hint of wintergree...

Picture of Ceylon Extra Superior

A delightful, mellow tea that was one of the best Ceylons I've tried in a while. A subtle tea that was better for calm meditation than as a pick-me-up.

Dry leaf has a beautiful, intact shape with long, wiry leaves in a dark purple-black color. It is only mildly aromatic, smelling lightly of malt and spice with a hin...

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...
