drank Maple Bacon by Man Teas
267 tasting notes

What the? I am giving this a pretty high rating because it really tastes like bacon plus black tea. I often HATE maple, but I really just tasted the bacon so I didn’t need to stab myself a fork to end the pain.

I hated this so very much. I couldn’t even finish a single cup. But it is exactly what it claims to be, so it deserves a high rating. My J tried it and just thought it tasted like a smokey black tea, so it may even be tolerable to folks who enjoy, say, lapsang souchong. Scary. Truly, truly scary. A great present for that bacon lover in your life. Me, I’m a vegetarian.

I LOVE his Chocolate Bacon.

Lisbet

That also intrigues and terrifies me at the same time ;)

Kristin

Oh no. I’ve been too scared to try it.

Cofftea

The other ones pretty much just taste like lapsang souchong to me- not scary. The chocolate bacon is amazing. Needs a bit of maple syrup and salt though. I wish Frank would put salt in his bacon blends.

LiberTEAS

It would be very difficult to keep the salt distributed properly in the tea.

Cofftea

Yeah I see your point, but like with the Mayan Chocolate Chai- shaking could be done before drinking.

Lisbet

I haven’t been liking chocolate teas lately, so the idea of both chocolate and the dreaded bacon in my tea? hmmmmm. I’d try it of course. I’ll try any tea, but I do think liking the smokiness of lapsang souchong is a prerequisite :)

Cofftea

Lisbet, I’m not a fan of lapsang souchong at all… I’d only drink it or bacon teas w/ breakfast foods (which I’m not a fan of either lol)… but the chocolate would definitely be my favorite and I could see myself actually enjoying it every once in a while. Would be great w/ a liquor added. Also in latte form. I bet espresso added for those that enjoy espresso would be an amazing addition for depth and character. So would chai spices.
