An update to my previous review. I left it for about ten weeks and that has really made a difference. Both teas have lost the bacon taste. Brother has retained a bit of pleasant smokiness, especially in the first few steeps. Sister seems to have lost that as well. It is probably a nice enough tea on its own but next to the stronger tasting brother it feels like it’s missing something.
Both teas are somewhat light bodied though, whereas my preference runs more towards strong bodied teas.
It will be interesting to see how they develop further.
