Pleasantly fruity, just enough flavor.

I “used” to really love this tea, it was a go too fruity green tea for me. But when they starting changing their brand look and the boxes it felt like they changed their brew as well. I don’t care for the new one nearly so much. It’s become the neglected tea in my tea stash. Ok, but not my favorite anymore. Seems a lot less fruity and well blended then it used to be. Sorta blah now.
This tea is bitter, and has very little tropical flavoring to it. The worst part was that as the tea cooled, it just kept getting weaker and weaker. I would only recommend this tea to people who are just trying to get into green tea and prefer to not have too much of a grassy taste to their teas.

A few years back my wife was in the hospital for a 12 days stretch, and I was there with her to watch and wait. I didn’t have a lot of creature comforts at that time, but I did have some matches of Green Tea Tropical. Without a way to get hot water (I wasn’t one to ask for things or venture far from the room at the time), I brewed this in a water bottle over and over throughout the day with cold tap, one bag per day until it ran out. It probably sounds awful, but it wasn’t. The tea held up to all those cold-water brewings and still had enough flavor to overpower the tap. I’ll never be able to separate this tea from that experience, so I thought I’d share.
For me there’s more floral than fruit to this tea, and the underlying green is good, if a bit weak. I can see how some might get sick of the strong’ish fruity flavor, but it’s better iced and weak. If you have a few bags left and you weren’t so sure about this tea after trying it hot, iced is also nice.
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…
