11 tasting notes

“remember that old Saturday Night Live skit about Pork Soda … well, what was said there applies here … “it’s like drinkin a pig” A good tea if you can’t decide whether you want a cup of tea or a slightly overdone boar on a spit."

That was my old review. Now, I’ve completely come around on this tea. I drink it after a hard day or if I’m not feeling all that great and the smoky flavour puts me beside a campfire in the outback of my youth. True, it does take a little bit of mental gymnastics at first i.e. ’it’s not bacon, it’s bamboo, it’s not bacon, it’s bamboo’ … but once you’ve done it, this tea really pays off. My new favourite.
