drank Maple Bacon by Man Teas
104 tasting notes

I bought this tea for a friend that LOVES bacon, so I wasn’t expecting much (I figured it was more novelty than anything) but I was pleasantly surprised by a tea that mixed sweet and smokey to create a perfect blend of flavorful black tea.

When you first open the bag, the leaves have a strong, sweet smell that reminded me of pralines. There’s a bit of bacon in the aroma as well, though it’s more of a woodsy, smokey smell than a meaty, porky smell.

When you brew it, the aroma mellows out and leaves you with a dark, golden brown/caramel colored tea that has a wonderfully smokey aroma and hints of salty bacon. The smoke definitely overpowers the maple and the bacon though, so don’t expect to be drinking liquid meat. (Which is a good thing.)

Next steep, I’d go a little longer and see if the bacon gets a little stronger, but this is a surprisingly good tea with complex flavors that will be enjoyed by anyone that likes a smokey, hearty tea.

the phrase “liquid meat” is just about the grossest pairing of words i’ve heard. :)

But descriptive, right? You can almost taste it… ;)
