drank Momo by Lupicia
204 tasting notes

I’ve been drinking this for the past couple of days and have been getting markedly more peach flavor than I did when I first tried it (and wrote my initial tasting note). Although this black base is still not my all-time favorite, now that I’m getting some peach notes I’d actually say the base works better with peach than it does with some of Lupicia’s other flavorings. I’m raising my score several points.

Are you also finding Lupicia’s lighter tea bases to be better than the black tea base?

I am – I think the bases they use for their greens tend to work quite well with the flavorings. They’re not very strong or vegetal, but I actually prefer that in a base for a flavored blend (though I enjoy stronger greens on their own). I’ve only had two Lupicia oolongs, one of which I loved but I know you didn’t(Ripe Mango) and one of which I disliked just because it was pineapple and I don’t really like pineapple. So I’ll withhold judgment there for now. I should say that I’m having trouble coming up with a flavored black tea I’ve really loved from any vendor(aside from chai, but that’s a different kind of thing), so it could well be that lighter flavored teas are more my thing. What have your experiences been with Lupicia’s bases?

I feel the same as you regarding their bases. The Ripe Mango oolong is pending final judgement (I think it’s a flavoring thing – needing to sit) but besides the black (so-so) and white (haven’t tried) all their other bases have worked so well with the tea. I wouldn’t be surprised if I changed my mind about the Ripe Mango either. I still have to try your Pineapple Oolong sample, that might happen today! I love pineapple.

I do like this Momo black, but I bet the genius flavoring would be enhanced by a better black base.
