There is a strong tropical aroma from this teabag, which gives me quite some joy. Most teabags are weak and pale, but Mighty Leaf seem to be consistent with their potently scented teas.

Steeping gives a light yellow-lime brew, with more green tea than tropical scents. From the aroma, I can tell each apart, which leads me to believe the taste will be the same as well.

The green tea is not what I thought it would be, which is extremely bland. You can taste that it is green tea, but the quality is severely lacking.

The tropical flavor is barely there, probably enough to distinguish from the flat green tea. There is little to no fruitiness the aromas have teased about.

To be honest, I had low expectations once I caught the aroma during steeping. I didn’t want to believe that the green tea wasn’t going to be great, or even at least good, but it was too grassy to even think otherwise. It would have benefited with more tropical flavoring and a more subtle or at least better tasting green tea.
