From Lupicia

Savor the succulent flavor and aroma of Japanese white peach in this Taiwanese pouchong blend accented with pink rose petals.

The noble sweetness of Japanese white peach, with its fresh and subtle flavour, is justly matched with a superior grade Taiwanese Oolong. An aromatic and refreshing blend that is extremely soft on the palate.

This is one of those teas that I like and drink frequently, but never get around to talking about. It’s like drinking this relaxes me to the point that I just don’t want to be bothered with forming sentences and figuring out how to write about it.

Momo Oolong Super Grade is a very fresh-off-the-tree sort of peach, light and refreshing. The oolong gives this a slightly floral flavor. It’s just the sort of thing to drink on a dull afternoon; it tastes good whether hot or iced.

Doesn’t work so hot for multiple steeps. The second brew is noticeably weaker than the first, and the third is basically colored water.

Tea bag. Dry, it smells peachy and juicy with a little extra something that is coming from the oolong. Yeah, I know Lupicia says to use boiling water, but I can’t. So I didn’t. Brewed up, the peachy and the floral of the oolong seem more evenly balance with perhaps the floral being a little weightier. Taste-wise, this strikes me more as yellow peach than white. A little bolder in peachy taste. Very yummy peach. Matches well with the floral taste of the oolong to make something that tastes like it came right off the tree in the middle of summer. Mmm.

This tea is pretty AH-mazing. I wasn’t feeling it as much before when I was just drinking it straight- the flavors are intense, fruity, and almost a bit too floral for my taste as a brewed oolong tea. It was not bitter at all. It had promise, but wasn’t quite right. Until today it struck me — iced tea!

What a great way to ring in the first day of July. I brewed it strong and iced it, and it is delicious. I’d highly recommend it. The peach flavors are intense and lend a natural sweetness to the tea without needing extra sugar. The base of vegetal and smooth green oolong balances out the tea. It’s a light and refreshing way to enjoy your summer.

Received this as a gift. I have been spoiled! Smells heavenly, and the taste is just right. I made it strong (1.5 tsp) and it’s wonderful. With the light sweetness of the peach it’s a liquid dessert.

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.

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.

Hmm… I like this but I don’t think it’s as impressive as others have commented. White peach is more present in the aroma than flavour. As for the oolong base, it is smooth and decent but I can’t see how superior it is. Maybe it’s because I tasted too much fine oolong in Taiwan in my recent trip…?

Really yummy. Tastes like biting into a fresh, ripe peach…in tea form :) I bet this would make a really good iced tea. I’ll have to try that next. Even hot, it tastes like it should be able to cool you off during the summer.

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.

I first tried it at the tea event I organized for my club last year and I loved it. But I’ve been holding off on buying this tea for a while… mostly because of the price.

But last week during spring break I finally gave in and got a tin. This tea is one of the better flavored teas I’ve had in a while but my palate is starting to veer away from flavored teas in general. Not sure if I love this more than my Takibi yet.
