I have to go to Murchie's when we come to Victoria--I even ask friends to bring home tea for me. I have loved the tea lattes I've tried (Orchard Twist and Raspberry Temptation are both excellent!), because they're flavorful but not too sweet. The shop has a myriad of teas to take home, as well as an impressive selection of... More

We always go to Murchie's when we go to Victoria. Great place for a quick tea, coffee and pastries. There's something for everyone there. They never disappoint. After tea, I go to the store and purchase tea to take home.

We have stopped several times to pickup a variety of different teas. If you can not find a tea here, then you shouldn't bother drinking tea. It is a retail and cafe store. They have sandwiches and salads, but the desserts are what you really should be having with your tea.

Just what a tired tourist needed, a super hot cup of tea. The coffee was equally as good here to. The aromas in the early morning are divine, had a yummy breakfast here

I have been to murchies before on other trips and always loved it. This time is was just ok. The girls behind the counter looked and acted like they didn't give a &$@? The food was still ok but it just wasn't the same. Not nearly as busy as before

A visit to Victoria would never be complete without a visit to Murchie's. I love their tea and while you can get it online I prefer to actually visit the store and smell the flavours.

A stop at Murchies is a must for tea lovers. Great variety of packaged and bulk teas and some coffees. Also tea accessories.. Has a lunch room attached with a variety of sandwiches, desserts, etc.

We had been advised to stop at Murchie's for tea. I did not regret the stop. The teas were delicious and the sweets amazing. If you like chocolate try the Rum Ball!

We used to buy all our loose leaf tea from Murchie's when we lived in Victoria more than 40 years ago. It looked a little different then. But, it was so nice to see all the old familiar teas still being sold. Now they also sell coffee and have a restaurant. We had a great visit and will return for... More

We were visiting from the UK and were taken to Murchies for afternoon tea by family members who live locally. The selection of drinks and cakes was impressive and the quality was pretty good. The queue to be served was slow moving but the staff were very helpful. Well worth a try if you are visiting Victoria.
