drank Smoky Bacon by Man Teas
762 tasting notes

I made a cup of this tea because I was craving lapsang souchong. I had already had a cup of lapsang today so I decided to go with this because it was something a bit different. I added some maple butter to it, because I apparently have no maple syrup in the fridge (or its in there and I just can’t find it – who knows). It was pretty good. Gave it a sweet and maple taste to it. Worked well with the smokey bacon taste. However, I had it in the afternoon and I think it is more of a breakfast/morning type tea. I just didn’t find it as enjoyable in the afternoon. But in saying that, my usual pattern is lighter teas/herbals in the afternoon. Crazy how your body can tell the change in routine.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
