drank Momoko by Lupicia
1126 tasting notes

I decided to steep this at 175F due to the kettle being done faster, lol! It also bothered me how the steeping instructions are with boiling water with Momoko being a green. I left the bag in while I ate a pancake, so I’m not sure how long of a steeping I did. Overall, not that great. No peachy, just a touch of creamy and loads of grassy green with a little dryness.

Well, back to steeping this with boiling water.

I know what you mean. Every time I see instructions that tell me to boil green/white tea I just look at it like, “Your joking, right?”

Same sentiment! I have a green/white flavored blend from Lupicia that recommends boiling water, which was confusing, but it really does better that way, somehow…

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
