drank Maple Bacon by Man Teas

Received this in the bestsellers sampler pack.

I have the Smokey Bacon tea and it is ok but it is pretty bold in taste. This one is much lighter in taste. The “smoke” flavour is pretty light. I do get some bacon flavour out of this one. The maple taste is also pretty light, but it works well with the tea. If I was adding maple syrup myself to a tea, I would have added more. I was surprised at this one. I would say the black tea base is fairly strong as compared to the flavouring. I think I prefer this one more than the smokey bacon.

A long time ago with tea’s like this I began to think “how can I do this flavour myself?” And I began to improvise with my own ingredients. I always keep homemade cooked applewood smoked bacon bits (well drained) in the freezer for flavoring veggies, and my spice shop sells granulated maple sugar (I bought a small amount).

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.
