Huh. I finished this off a few days ago but didn’t bother to write a review because I got it confused with Revolution’s Tropical Green Tea. It was nice and fruity. Nothing astounding, though.
Happy Passover/Easter/regular Sunday, as appropriate!

I’m sipping on this tea this afternoon because I have just been drinking so many black teas lately that I needed a bit of a change. My friend bought me this tea as a congratulations on my new job. She knew I liked tea, so she picked one up for me! So sweet. I am a fan of Mighty Leaf’s White Orchard, so I was pretty excited to try this one, too.
First off, I have no idea how hot my water is at work, so I may have steeped it at water that was too hot. That being said, I wasn’t too impressed by this tea. It did have a pleasant, generic tropical kind of taste that was to be expected. However, it verges on the edge of tasting medicinal to me rather than natural, juicy fruit flavors. It’s nice enough to have at work, so I’ll probably keep it around my desk somewhere.
Edit: As it’s cooling, the flavor becomes more medicinal, eek. I’ll just have to gulp it down while it’s still hot!
I’m hosting interviews again today, so it’s bagged tea and a thermos for the majority of the day. I picked this one out last night as I haven’t tried it for a good long while, and my recollection of it is hazy. As my first tea of the day, it wasn’t a bad choice! The tropical flavouring here is juicy and fresh, although quite generic. I’m pretty sure there’s pineapple and mango, although on the whole it tastes tastes like Um Bongo. Not that that’s a bad thing — it was a much loved drink of my childhood, after all. There’s a slight bitterness, although that’s probably at least partly my fault given the less than perfect brewing conditions. I’ll be giving it another go and revising my note later on, anyway.
This makes for a good thirst quenching drink, and is actually very pleasant on a warm day. I’ll have to remember to try it cold brewed in the summer as well. On the whole, recommended! I’ll hold back on a rating until I’ve tried this “properly” at home, though.
Despite containing pineapple as the fruit, Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical reminded me a lot of Kusmi Thé Vert à la Fraise. I wonder whether strawberries and pineapple are related somehow? So, yes, this is a fairly fruity-flavored green tea with probably a bancha base green tea. I’ll try another sachet soon to get a firmer idea of what may be this tea’s unique virtues…
This tea is pretty good, but I was expecting a little less of the grassy green tea taste and a little more fruit. I find the fruit flavors to be subtle though it is definitely present. I have been drinking it as is without any sweetener. It is far from being a favorite of mine, but I have been enjoying it well enough.
I had this tea at a crepe cafe and loved it. It tasted like fresh tropical fruits and light blend of green tea. I went home and bought a box of the tea bags (should have purchased teh loose tea) and it was rather dull. Not at all like the tea I remembered having at the cafe. I do not usually add anything to my teas, however, this tea is much better with a small hint of sugar to enhance the tropical notes. Good in the early morning or in the afternoon while knitting or reading.
