To be perfectly frank, I prepared and drank a cup of Green Tea Tropical out of obligation as it was sent to us by the nice people at Mighty Leaf Tea. It is very unlike anything I ever drink – tea or otherwise. It is fruity, not strongly caffeinated, with a wide range of dissimilar ingredients. Worst of all it has the word “tropical” in its name and description!
But as it began to steep I was surprised to note that I really liked the scent rolling off the top of my mug. It is most assuredly sweet, but of a fruity/tart sweetness that I liked. The actual taste of the brew is complex, but not muddled by competition for dominance of flavors. The green tea is nearly below the taste threshhold, which results in a more integrated taste for the whole. Without a prominent flavor, the green tea leaves are still perceptible – in that distinctive feeling that greens paint over the tongue and roof of the mouth. The blend contains both pineapple and guava but mercifully tastes like neither of them. The full ingredients are: green tea, banana, strawberry, pineapple, guava, and exotic fruit flavors with red, white and blue cornflowers, pineapple pieces.
In spite of it being so unlike anything I would actively seek out as a beverage, I can tell that for someone who likes mild, sweet tangy summery tastes this tea would be quite enjoyable. It is a tea that would be perfect for a sunny day when you’re stuck inside, longingly gazing up from your cup of tea to the outside world, where you can’t be because you’re stuck at work.
Unrelated to the specifics of this particular tea, Mighty Leaf’s ingredients page is a good source of information.

As someone that has done a fair amount of content on tea, I have a lot of mixed thoughts on the way information is passed. With tea reviews or discussing a specific tea I have struggled with the question: how to talk about an individual tea or tea in general in an interesting or useful way.. Whether you like or dislike TeaDB episodes largely depends on whether you enjoy watching two particular people drink and binter. This is fine enough and it is certainly fun for Denny & I to create, but I’ll also agree with the sentiment that it’s not necessarily the most substantive way to review a tea in depth. There’s some signal but there’s also a lot of noise. Writing about a specific tea also isn’t easy and I think is actually very difficult to execute in a way that is actually consistently interesting or useful for people. Most people just want to know if you liked or didn’t like a specific tea. Making something that piques interest beyond that is a challenge and even if you don’t like them a place like Mei Leaf has succeeded in creating content that really does engage their viewers. You also have to consider that the majority of people have not had the tea or are even unfamiliar with the basic taste profile (i.e. Denny & I describing a traditionally stored pu’erh, when the audience has never had one).. Here are some phrases I dislike and hear frequently enough that I find them unhelpful and sometimes even counter-productive.
