I’ll admit to being a bit nervous trying this tea. After all, bacon isn’t something I eat on a regular basis, and I’ve never had it coated in chocolate before (having a mild pork allergy doesn’t help). So really, there’s nothing that I’ve had to compare this tea to.

It’s very smoky (is the base tea a Lapsang Souchong or something similar?), and the bacon flavoring isn’t as strong as I expected it would be; meaning, it didn’t smack me in the mouth and send me crying for mama. Chocolate is very subtle, but seems to become stronger as the tea cools. I do think it’s rather salty as well (I’m going to assume from the bacon bits). The more I sip, the more I like, and though I don’t think it’ll become one of my daily go-tos, it’s definitely not going to be sitting idle in my tea cabinet.

Well-done, Frank! Have you ever thought of a chocolate-covered potato chip tea?

I don’t know about chocolate potato chips, but I’m secretly (Shhh, don’t tell anyone. LOL!) working on a buttered popcorn tea.

LOL! Well, it’s going to be a litttle bit, but I think I am getting closer.

Jaime

I know a ButterBuds rep, if that helps speed things along.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
