Très means very
Trop means too much, implying a negative effect
It's the same usage as in english (in general) :
This tea is very hot. = Ce thé est très chaud.
This tea is too hot. = Ce thé est trop chaud.
In the first sentence, this is just a neutral statement.
In the second sentence, it is implied that you can't drink the tea.
"Très" amplifies the following adjective, you can translate it to "very" :
"Je suis très content" -> "I'm very happy".
"Trop" on the other hand means that the following adjective is so important that it's too much :
"J'ai trop mangé" -> "I've eaten too much"
