First thoughts when I opened the package: Ewww, Bacon flavored tea! Who on earth could possibly enjoy this. The aroma was just overwhelming at first, but I calmed myself down and really dove into the tea. I always say ‘Got to try everything once.’ Now I’m pretty sure the bacon scent is coming from how the smoked it with the pine embers. So I loaded my infusing basket and boiled some water and started the brew. When I first stuck my nose into the basket to get a smell the bacon was still very noticeable. I kept at it though, taking in the aroma for all it was worth and sure enough I began to pick up the pine. Okay, this is getting interesting. The liquor has an orange / bronze appearance. It was very hard to find the courage within to take my first drink of this tea. The whole bacon scent, just WOW! Alright, I take my first sip and I get hit with the shivers up and down my body. The smokiness is setting in now. I keep drinking, swirling the tea around trying to get all the possible flavors it has to offer and you know, it’s really not too bad. I found myself getting past the bacon and really enjoying the smoked pine flavor.
I ended up drinking two cups of this tea, and came out rather taken back by the fact that I actually enjoyed this one. I can’t say that I would buy more of this unusual tea, but I definitely thing everyone should at least try this one at least once.
