drank Momoko by Lupicia
635 tasting notes

Where to begin! The dry leaves smell like heaven. Very peachy. Very fragrant.

There’s an abundance of pink rose petals, tiny blue cornflowers, and little hard translucent crystal-like rocks (sugar perhaps?). That might explain why this tea is so sweet! I’m impressed with how much is in here besides green tea leaves. Lupicia never skimps on ingredients.

In Japanese, Momoko means ‘peach child.’ It’s an interesting name because this tea reminds me of cotton candy and bubblegum, which I associate with childhood. The peach is very present, but there are also some lovely rose notes.

I can taste the vanilla, and it’s blended so well with the peach flavor. My only negative comment is that this tea is somewhat heavy because of all the rich floral notes. And something sour is pinching the back right side of my mouth. I have no idea what that could be!

This is a very flavorful green tea! It’s very sweet and only a little bit astringent, though not bitter at all. At the end of the sip, I’m getting classic sencha grassiness.

Overall, this is a good flavored tea. Not my favorite of Lupicia’s flavored greens, but still a contender. The second steep was almost identical to the first.

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!

My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.

I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
