A gem for those looking to find subtle flavors in a quality green tea. Naturally flavored by several berries and botanicals, it is not overpowering like most berry-filled satchels. Despite the lack thereof, this can easily be overpowering and bitter if steep time is not obeyed. When following the directions, this is easily one of the most refreshing options on the market, hot or cold.
Grass notes of organic sencha are the first to bud on the palate. This quickly gives way to fruits, berry, and a suggestion of melon as it evolves over seconds. Bolder notes of cherry, and earthy nuts expand, giving rise to a mellow citrus finish.
Each sip is the stereotype of a rainforest stroll. A sensation I find most welcoming in the spring, summer, and fall months.
The original Tropical Goji tea was once far bolder with berries on the finish. Its replacement, the Organic Tropical Green being reviewed, is still a phenomenal sip for those looking to the calmer side of flavor profiles.
As a fan of bolder finishes, I consider the discontinued Goji Green a 97/100. The commercially available Organic Tropical Green still manages a 93/100, in the very least.
