drank SBT: Maple Bacon by 52teas
4219 tasting notes

On The Fifth Day of Christmas, SBT sent me this tea!

OK … I have to be real, as much as I’ve enjoyed the other bacon flavored teas that 52Teas has offered … I was just a little … freakishly worried and sort of stranged out by the idea of a Maple Bacon Iced Tea. It just sounded too weird.

And it is weird. This isn’t my favorite iced tea flavor from SBT. It’s not … horrible, but I don’t think it’s one that I’d ever order again. I can’t see this as a tea that I’d think … I want more of this flavor. It’s alright, but it’s not great. But it does get bonus points for nailing the flavor of bacon and for being a truly unique iced tea, even though I personally am not all that excited about it.

Here’s my full-length review of it: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/12/29/fifth-day-christmas-southern-boy-teas-edition/

PS: It’s better if you add a slice of citrus to it. I suggest lime.

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.
