Thank you LiberTEAS for sending me a sample of Tropical Explosion.

The coconut and pineapple are the strongest notes. They balance well with the white tea, creating a blend that isn’t very sweet, but still decidedly fruity. There’s a bit of a mint effect from the tea, that refreshed/clean/slightly tingling feeling? I wonder what causes that. (At first I thought I was crazy, but it looks like JaneFan tasted it too.)

I don’t usually go for a lot of tropical fruit flavors, so this isn’t a blend I would have picked out myself. I’m so glad I got a chance to try it, and just might have to order more in the future!

aha! I’m not crazy! (Or we’re both crazy…?) I think it’s something about the papaya, for me. I haven’t eaten real papaya lately but a vaguely recall a similar fresh, “tingly feeling” like you described. I’m gonna try this tea again soon…

I can’t remember ever eating a fresh papaya, so I have no idea how it tastes. It might very well be the culprit!
