drank Maple Bacon by Man Teas
67 tasting notes

A very interesting blend. When I opened the package, I was intrigued by the complex smoky notes of the bacon and slight perfume of the maple flavoring. I hoped these flavors would carry over into a brew. (Generally, I don’t drink black tea straight — it’s way too bitter and I usually need sugar and milk to make it palatable.)

Unsweetened, this stuff is stronger than strong. It’s SKRONG.

Sweetened, the maple and bacon flavors are more pronounced, but overwhelmed by the muskiness of the black tea.

Sweetened (and with milk added), this tea sings. Each sip brings a full-bodied taste of maple and bacon with a slightly smoky aftertaste. It’s not my favorite 52teas blend, but certainly a conversation starter.
