Even though the tea smells good, I got no hints of tropical, mint, or much of anything other than the flavor of the green tea when brewed.

While it wasn’t terrible, it was so plain and uninspiring that I look forward to finishing the box and never buying it again.

I may try the suggestion to make it a cold tea and see if I get any better results. I steeped it at a variety of temperatures (175, 180, 185, 190) and found the lower temperature brought out the best results which isn’t saying much.

EDIT TO ADD: I finally got around to cold brewing this tea and still remain largely unimpressed by the tea. I did, however, find the cold brew slightly more palatable with some sweetener and will be how I finish this box off.

190 °F / 87 °C 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
