I just got a pretty decent order from Lupicia. I’ve seen it in Ala Moana in Hawaii, yet didn’t get any tea b/c I didn’t want to have to carry too much, and my family isn’t too keen on buy so much tea. The Momo Oolong was included after checking previous reviews here, looking for a good peach tea. I’m glad I did, since think it’s really good. We’re transitioning right now, but since it’s not too cold, I had it over ice, unsweetened (except for 1/4 t orange juice). First I steeped at the given temp and time (actually between 190 and 190 F), in about 5-6 oz water. After adding the OJ, I poured it over a bunch of ice, yielding approx 2 cups tea, with some ice floating at the top. I like this b/c it definitely has an oolong flavor I’m used to, and I could definitely taste hints of peach. I’d probably be able to taste more if i had used less water overall, but it’s not a big deal, since I’m trying to keep hydrated. Another good thing is that it’s a nice, sweet clean peach, not bitter like some others I’ve tasted unsweetened. I should probably note I ate this with a homemade cheeseburger and some grilled zucchini, but I mean, unsweetened tea has become like soda or juice to me. I may try it hot, or with less water soon.
