drank Pineapple Bacon Rooibos by 52teas
4231 tasting notes


Didn’t hate it, but, didn’t really love it either. I had my hopes up, because I really did enjoy the other bacon teas that I’ve tried (Maple Bacon and Chocolate Bacon from 52Teas … duh, right?)

But this didn’t really live up to the other bacon offerings. This misses some of that smoky note of bacon. Bacon should taste slightly smoky, you know? This … doesn’t. I do like the pineapple in this though, sweet and juicy. It needs more bacon flavor, it needs a hint of smokiness … and when preparing this, I do recommend adding a pinch of salt to it when you pour it into your teacup … this does help bring out the bacon-y taste a little bit.

Not horrible, but not my favorite bacon tea. Yes, I realize that sentence seems a very odd one to be saying. Or typing. Or whatever. It just doesn’t seem like it should be a sentence of this earth. But … there it is.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
