This tastes really good. It doesn’t taste chemical-y or thin (although it is a little – just slightly! – thinner than the caffeinated version of Momo). It has a very pleasant peach taste. Sweet, juicy and delicious. YUM!!!

DECAF MOMO is a fruity blend of black tea scented with juicy white peaches. The tea leaves are decaffeinated using a special technique. Safe for children and great before bedtime.

Special thanks to LiberTEAs for this one. Overall this was a nice Decaf Tea! I agree with LiberTEAs that it’s just slightly ‘thinner’ than the regular momo! I really like this one…so much so that I had 3 cups yesterday…the white peach is a nice touch…and I really like the black decaf tea taste in this!
Overall, this is okay. If you need to avoid caffeine; this is a good tea.
Similar to the normal Momo but some of the flavors are a bit muted; not as tangy and no sharpness.
It tastes like I’m smelling japanese peach gum – yes you read that right, haha. Specifically, Marukawa peach gum (tattoo type). When I am drinking this tea, it has the faint taste of powdered peach flavor that you would smell on this particular gum. It’s nice and nostalgic for me but every time I take a sip, I feel like I want to eat the gum and all I’m allowed is to smell it.
It isn’t a bad tea, I just feel like I want more from it – due to my experience with the aforementioned gum.
Decent black base, but the fruity peach is the main flavour. You can’t taste the base as much as I usually do with caffeinated blacks (which is fine by me). The peach flavouring doesn’t taste artificial at all, and it slightly sweet. It makes me think of Japanese white peaches-delicate but distinct. Makes a good coldbrew too!
Flavors: Fruity, Peach, Stonefruit, Sweet
This tea is quite good. There is the strong flavor of peaches, I would argue frozen peaches actually. There is a slight, very slight sourness that reminds me of an icewine tea actually, but with peaches. This tea will become an evening regular for me and I will probably order again as good decaf is hard to find.
I brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 3 min.
Happy new year, all!
This one smells—and tastes—like a fresh, natural white peach. The tea base itself is, of course, not very robust, but provides a nice smooth backdrop for the peach flavor. In my recollection Momo Oolong was more distinctive, but this one is quite enjoyable as well.
In a few days I will be back to my old place to finish up my projects and resume job searching. Hopefully the weather warms up too!
Why do so many fuzzy peach teas fail to actually taste like fuzzy peaches? This one, for example, had such a strong smell that just did not translate to the taste. Instead it was slightly peachy black tea with that hint of weirdness that seems to turn up in decaffeinated cups. Disappointing indeed but at least that is one more tea off my “to try” list and another quick and easy sipdown. Final count for the night: 279.
Incredible. Full-bodied yet refreshing. Hard to believe it’s decaf.
I like Lupicia but seriously did not expect it to be THIS good.
In all the peach teas I’ve tried, I’m all like ‘ya, it’s just gonna be a tea with peach juice.’
Who knew that a decaf Momo would be so buttery, nutty and creamy too? And yes, deliciously peachy.
I don’t think I could be without this one.
French Lupicia have renamed a lot of the teas on their website – Momo, for example, isn’t Momo, but Pêche blanche, which is well and all, but it’s confusing even for second-language-French, third-language-English me, so I’m going to add the French names to the tea description – I hope this is okay with everyone. Thankfully, all national Lupicia branches use the same number system, so this is still trusty old 5404 all over the world.
So I guess there are three main questions here:
Black fruit tea, Anna? Also, a decaf tea, Anna? And, above all, MORE TEA, Anna?
Yes, yes, and yes.
- I’m not a black fruit tea fan at all, as you know – except that berry one that Ang shared in a swap and that still haunts me sometimes – but peach is one of this year’s projects, after all, along with pushing boundaries. Lupicia’s Momo Oolong is still one of my all-time favourites, and I’ve been eager to compare how the perfect pitch of that peach flavouring translates to a full-on black base. In addition, I don’t have a lot of experience with Lupicia’s black teas, yet my favourite blend ever is one of Lupicia’s flavoured blacks.
- Decaf, because, as you’ve been able to tell, I’m not really getting around to drinking a lot of tea right now. I’m very deep into my work and I can’t really drink tea when I’m off all over Rome visiting libraries and archives and museums – and so when I come home, if I finally do get a chance to steep something, I have to stick to rooibos, which doesn’t feel overly exciting if I only get to have one single cup in a day.
- More tea, because I’ve been really, really curious about French Lupicia and how they handle their stuff. I mean, Frenchies, I love you, but tread lightly, this is Lupicia we’re talking about. They’ve been an absolute dream, though – great service, fair tea selection which seems to be expanding at a solid pace, surprisingly modest shipping and quite adequate delivery speeds.
The tea (wow, that sure took a while to get to) smells insane in the bag, as always – more like peach candy than natural peach, but still without coming off artificial. It’s that typical Lupicia mind game that I can’t explain, but it presents all pure and perfect. The same goes for the brewed tea – light, clean and fresh both in the nose and the cup. It hits just the right peach note, because not only do I get the juicy fruitiness, but also the complex tart bite of the skin, which is baffling.
This is definitely light for a black tea, but that’s what I expected and what makes this so accessible to me. I do prefer my greens, whites and oolongs, and I love knowing there are black teas I can keep around that don’t feel like a full meal to take on.
Now I just need to figure out which Lupicia store I want to live close to, and plan my life accordingly. Priorities.
