I realize this is Lupicia’s number one best selling tea of all time, but I’m just not that impressed.

Those Japanese peaches must be well-loved though because they’re used in at least three teas in my sampler kit, including black, green, and now oolong.

But anyway, the Momo Oolong Super Grade definitely has a strong, sweet scent of peaches. But the scent is much stronger than the flavor. It was misleading. I expected to be hit by a wave of peach flavor from the aroma it gave off while steeping. But I was surprised to learn that wasn’t the case.

However, the peach flavor is strong enough that it kind of masks the flavor of the oolong, which is almost bitter.

I realize that I’m being quite critical of this tea. It’s not bad by any stretch of the imagination. It’s just not a favorite of mine. I like the Golden Osmanthus oolong tea better than this one.

Perhaps I’m just missing the bandwagon with this tea, but I suppose I’ve never been a huge peach lover either.

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
