Over the multiple steepings I tasted a lot of cinnamon and molasses, but not much chocolate. I even added a bit of sugar halfway through the multiple steepings to see if that would bring out the chocolate flavours, but alas, it did not. Mediocre, at best.

Not really impressed. The leaves looked terrible, and the flavour put off was not really that great.

drank Momo Oolong Super Grade by Lupicia

Gaiwan tasting.
First steeping smells incredibly fruity and sweet. A bit like lychee and a bit like ginseng. This by far one of the sweetest teas I have ever had and certainly sweeter even than a ginseng coated oolong I own.
The taste is certainly a surprise and not what I was expecting.
Pretty delicious, seriously, for never having heard of the company.

The concept of this tea really weirded me out at first. I tend toward the purer, non-flavoured teas, so to try something this extremely abnormal is definitely new.
I steeped it exactly as the directions on the site directed.
The smell is reminiscent of burned raisins…not a good sign as I do not like my toast crisped. Then I pick up hints of cinnamon.
The taste was hard to describe. I guess it kind of tastes like buttered cinnamon raisin toast…kind of…
It is not bad by any means, but I was a bit disappointed. The aftertaste hits the mark better than when one is drinking the tea.

The peach taste is perfumey and fake, but it has a decent after taste.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
