From DAVIDsTEA

Florida flashy
Ready for spring break? Try this sweet, citrusy cocktail of oranges, tangerines and lemongrass. It’s got hibiscus and beetroot to turn it a natural shade of hot pink, plus blackberry leaves for a sunny burst of Vitamin C, apple and carrot for extra sweetness, and eucalyptus leaves for kick. Sound irresistible? Try it iced. In a martini glass. With a splash each of cointreau and gin. And a paper umbrella. Caffeine-free.

Ingredients: Hibiscus blossoms, apple pieces, carrot flakes, blackberry leaves, eucalyptus leaves, lemongrass, beetroot pieces, freeze-dried tangerine/orange slices and artificial flavouring

I bought 6oz of this tea strictly to make it iced. The weather is turning to spring and I wanted plenty of good iced teas to choose from and I don’t drink soda. This has a strong citrus smell when it was dry but when it was brewed it was more eucalyptus than I expected, which was nice because it was nice and cool and refreshing.

Magically tastes like grapefruit, even though there’s no grapefruit in it!

Would love to try it iced.

I’ve tried this tea a couple times now both hot and iced but sadly I just can’t get over the hibiscus taste. It smells so amazing when dry but the flavour is just repulsive to me. I’ll be giving this one away.

Pink Flamingo is an herbal tea. It turns your tea a dark-ish pink (like a flamingo?). Apparently, Flamingos are white, but their coloring comes from their diet (i.e. shrimp, and I think the shrimp get their color from the red algae).

This tea is quite tangy, probably because of all the citrus and the lemongrass. I’m not the biggest fan of tangy teas, but this one was pretty good I must admit. It is a good way to start (or end) a hot summer day :P

I opened the bag and the overwhelming smell of grapefruit hit me. It’s interesting, because there’s no grapefruit listed in the ingredients.

Brewed, it’s a gorgeous clear red colour. Hot, it tastes quite tart to me. I don’t get a sense of individual flavours.

Cold, it really just tastes like tart hibiscus to me. I still don’t taste any of the other ingredients.

I think I’ll have to find someone to take this one off my hands.

Got this iced at DAVIDs today. It’s okay…a bit tart because of the hibiscus though. I’m not big on hibiscus so I’m glad I didn’t buy any of the loose tea of it.

Day 20 of my do-it-yourself scavenger hunt advent calendar!

I already have Pink Flamingo in a tin in my desk at school, but to also have it at home (even just 2 cups worth) makes it taste different. Heh.

I still really like this one. Definitely not one of my favourites, but I like it a lot. Partially because it’s pink, but mostly because it tastes like a summer’s day. A bit fruity, a bit tart, a bit lemony, a bit grassy, a bit awesome. I’ve tried it iced once and wasn’t a fan, which is weird because I would have thought it was better cold. Alas, I’ll just drink it hot :)

Verdict: have already bought 2x

Had this iced and made the initial brew super strong. I felt like I should had added some cold water to it after, not just iced cubes, cause I found it better when it was watered down a bit. But still good and I will make it again.

Well this sounded great, smelled great, but when i drank it, I was dissapointed in the same way as when drinking forever nuts. The hibuscus just makes it way to strong and bitter regardless of water temp or steep time. I will be a lot more cautious when buying any teas with hibiscus! Therefore, I am witholding a ratin because if you like hibiscus this is great, otherwise it’s a trainwreck.
