When I brewed it for the first time, it was a little bitter. Then I tried making it iced with a little bit of agave and it was delicious.

Not being a huge fan of black tea blends I was hesitant to try this one at first but given my recent experience with some awesome blends from 52teas I was feeling brave. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed and found that this was a nice refreshing break from all the spice based teas I have been enjoying lately – not that there is anything wrong with spice teas. :) Personally I found that the mango flavor really shone thru and I could not help but be reminded of one of my favorite Oolong blends also from DavidsTea – Happy Kombucha. This blend is sweeter (even without sweetener) which works wonderfully given the stronger black tea base. The pomegranate flavor has a presence as well but is more of a supporting flavor that you end up saying, “there is something else in this blend – oh right its pomegranate!” So in a nutshell, if you like mango, you will like this tea. If you like Happy Kombucha, you will LOVE this tea.
A friend came over to drive me to work and so I offered to make her tea. I asked what she was in the mood for and her response was “cold, fruity tea”. I have her a few options and she settled on this one. I brewed up enough for us both because I realized I, myself, have yet to try this tea.
So now that I have tried it, all I can say is if I were doing a blind taste test, I would definitely say this had mango but the pomegranate was lost on me :(. I will try it hot and see if it differs but as an iced tea, I found myself sort of disappointed.
This tea smelled amazing and I couldn’t wait to try my first sip. Luckily, it was able to (mostly) live up to my expectations…there were subtly layered tropical fruity notes – mostly mango, possibly some pineapple or peach-esque flavours – that went rather nicely with the black base.
It took sweetener rather well and was a lot of fun to drink, but it still didn’t impress me to the point where I’d want to order it in the future….I think I’m getting picky.
I really like this! I was feeling pretty tired at work this morning and so made a cup of this tea. The first sip literally made me smile and say “mmmm” like I was in a coffee commercial lol. So fruity and juicy! I really like the combination of the mango, which dominates the taste, with the tart pomegranate in the background. I didn’t finish the whole cup before I went to lunch and it was pretty good cold when I got back. I do slightly prefer it hot though. Thank you Virginia for the sample!
Cold brewed this for about a day and it underwhelmed me.
Perhaps I underleafed, but I really expected the black tea in this would have delivered me a nicely dark, flavorful, fruity iced tea.
It did not.
It was really watered down and not nearly as fruity and delicious as I’d hoped.
So far nothing tops Tropicalia. I sure hope they bring it back!
PS this was a sipdown! Yayyyy
