6770 Tasting Notes
I have a dog who’s name is Riley but we sometimes call him Schmog – which, when said outloud, is much like Smaug. So everytime I see or hear this about the Hobbit Series I giggle. I had to try this! It’s VERY unique. It has a strong Caravan or Lapsang souchoung type flavor upfront followed by a mint or candy cane whaff to it. At times I can taste something reminiscent to Cotton Candy and other times something near a cough drop. Perhaps even a watermelon type hint. This is one bizarre flavored tea but I think that is why I kind of like it. It also fits my dogs personality so it continues with the theme as to why I had to try it.
This is much better than I thought it would be. It has a nice tang of blood orange but the level of tang is perfect…no more, no less! The pu-erh is nicely done but not overly ‘stinky’ or stereotypically pu-erh. A nice start pu-erh, probably! The aftertaste is woodsy, earthy, and citrusy…all nicely done!
This doesn’t have an aroma while dry. As it infuses it slightly starts to open up a flavor-scent of a cross between a floral oolong and a milky oolong. The scents is very subtle, tho. Post-infusion liquor is quite clear and doesn’t have a color or tint to it. It looks like water.
Once I start sipping this – everything turns around! The flavor is gentle but mouthwatering-sweet. It’s floral but fresh. It has a semi-woodsy but a sweeter-woody type after taste that is pleasing as well!
This is delightful!
After a hiatus from steepster – as well as other things – I am BACK! I have been drinking teas all thru my hiatus but no new teas, really, because I wanted to make sure I logged them here. SO now that I am back…I have LOTS and LOTS to sample and log. Here is the first of many.
I really thought I already logged this one but apparently I didn’t. It smells lovely. Creamy, sweet, lemony. After it infuses it fades away and smells more ‘green’. The flavor is green and floral with hints of creaminess and lemon. The Marshmallow root is present and pleasant. The end sip lingers nicely.
I grabbed a small cup of this and will pass on the rest to Liberteas and Azzrian
I do like the Hojicha in this! It’s it’s woodsy yet green tasting. It’s nutty and toasty. The popped rice is wonderful too! Larger than most popped rice I have seen in genmai.
This is much like soup! Quite brothy! I really REALLY like it!

I must say I am really in LOVE with Shanti’s Maple offerings but this is darned tasty, too! It’s not as strong with the maple but the Russian Caravan likeness – the Souchong – is pretty delightful! It’s done RIGHT. It has a good amount of smoke without it being obnoxious! YAY! Probably one of my faves from Tealuxe so far!
Another one from SIL – thanks!
This is cake-E, Bake-E, Crusty, Lusty, Croissant-E!
Out of ALL of that you only saw the word lusty, didn’t you?
Anyhow…this has a deep blueberry flavor in addition to it being muffin-like, which is GOOD because it’s all part of the muffin, right? YUM!
This is a fairly intensely flavored Rooibos and the Rooibos itself even taste deeper than most Rooibos’s – or should I say Rooibos-EYE? Not real sure…perhaps Rooibos is like Deer – it’s Deer – if there is one or 100 of them – is it the same for Rooibos? Or is more than one Rooibos known as Rooibos’s? LOL – teehee! Just jabbering!
This is a nice tisane, tho! Clever! I like it!
Oh! Clove! Hello!
And then there was FIG – yay!
The black tea base is nice – about medium strength – but I didn’t really know there was Oolong in here, too, until I read the description. I like that it’s a black/oolong blend but there isn’t much of an oolong flavor that is noticeable. The Apple notes are nice, too! This pairs well with the Almond Butter & Cranberry Power Chews I am currently eating! YUM!
