drank Pineapple Bacon Rooibos by 52teas
223 tasting notes

In the bag, it doesn’t smell like pineapple or bacon. It smells like wood maybe. Once brewed I get a bizarre smell that if I try really hard I can agree it’s a maple-smokiness of bacon. The funny thing is that it tastes nothing like bacon. And no, I am not going to add salt. It tastes like Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Or something. Someone said bubble gum. I agree with the gum part, but not the bubble part. Of course it’s been a while since I chewed bubble gum…

I am not going to do a second steep on this one, I do not like it enough to have back to back cups.

Pineapple… bacon… rooibos? I’m curious to know who first had the idea to put those three flavors together.

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician, I’m a chef and a wine lover with a trained palate but find that I lack the linguistic prowess for tea tasting notes. Now there’s something to learn!

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.
