This really wasn’t for me. I had high hopes since there were some good reviews. I made it iced, but the end result was just some tart stuff with an underlying chalky taste, like it was made from a mix.

My last tea to try from the box! Another offering from David’s.
This basically tastes like hibiscus orangeade… There’s not really much else to be said about it. I suppose it would be refreshing iced, but I really hate it when fruit teas have hibiscus – it overpowers so easily, and it’s so tart…
Boo hiss, David’s!
Flavors: Hibiscus, Lemon, Orange
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.
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.
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
