drank Maple Bacon by Man Teas
1341 tasting notes

Thank you Kristaleyn for this sample!! and Azzrian? I think I got some from both of you :)

Unfortunately though, this tea is not for me. I could barely finish a few sips, let alone the cup. Forget a second steep!
Something about this tea just makes me ill. Not in an allergy way. More in a can’t handle the flavour sortof tummy protest.
Now bear in mind… I don’t like smoked ham. Yep, bacon and I… we’ve never gotten along.
Even with milk and sugar this wasn’t palatable :(
So I won’t rate this. I can’t decide what would be a fair rating…
and I am super grateful to have tried this. You win some you lose some right?

Azzrian

I think I had sent all mine to Krystaleyn or maybe it was Dylan and Missy? I don’t know but I know I sent mine off. I didn’t like it either but I think Dylan did? Maybe? LOL I agree with you though I could not hack it either.

Missy

Hehe we got the chocolate mayan chai stuff and that stuff was excellent!

Azzrian

Indeed I remembered you got that and loved it – hummm maybe it was missy who got this. Or someone else lol who knows I can’t remember what I did an hour ago.

Azzrian

See I meant Krystalyn. Mind officially lost.

TeaBrat

this one sounds a bit weird to me too but I am starting to like lapsang! not sure about the maple…

Missy

Minds are optional!

Kittenna

Hahaha, yes Azzrian, this sample was from you, passed on to Indigobloom. Wasn’t my favourite so I passed some along. I did keep some to try with maple syrup & a pinch of salt though, as I think I’ve seen recommended on here.

Indigobloom

I think I’ll pass the rest of this one on as well, if I can find any takers… hope you don’t mind!
Mayan chai sounds really good though

Bonnie

I like this for adding lapsang souchong to!

Azzrian

Hey I say pass along until it finds its PROPER home :)

Indigobloom

hahahha for every tea there is a home :P

Bonnie

Except for….CARROT CAKE! bleh…bleh…bleh!

Indigobloom

LOL well yes, that tea is homeless! poor tea…

Kittenna

Apparently my sister doesn’t find it too bad! Anyways, I totally don’t care if people pass along teas I send to them. Sometimes you just don’t get a hit!

Indigobloom

awesome! well if I can’t find a good tummy for it to fill, to your sisters it goes :)

Azzrian

What is so bad about this carrot cake? I mean carrot cake sounds great too bad it was not good.

Indigobloom

LOL well… check out the reviews. I will let you decide. I haven’t tried more than a tiny sample at the local store so I can’t really comment!

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
