Having this right now… The brewed color is amazing. A deep rich red. The dry smell is really nice, I can really smell the lemongrass. First taste… not bad. Its light and refreshing. I think it would be really great cold, but I am not a fan of iced tea. Its okay hot, I don’t mind it at all… yet I don’t think I would buy it again.
I tried Pink Flamingo on a whim and it is pretty amazing. The dry tea smells citrusy and sweet with the last note being a menthol (refreshing) scent. I have had it hot about 3 times and really love it. It isn’t really tangy (maybe a slight zing), but not that prominent. Yes, this would be amazing iced with some agave… But I also enjoy it hot. The carrots add a nice mouth-feel… If you steep it for a while it reminds me of a delicious vitamin C infused broth (some of you are like “yuck”) but its delicious.
Oranges, tangerines, lemongrass, eucalyptus… reeeeeeeefreshing. This is tart but doesn’t taste overly acidic to me, which is a problem that I have with a lot of fruity teas. To say nothing of the hibiscus! Normally, I avoid hibiscus like the plague, but it’s workin’ for me here! All things considered, this tea really reminds me of grapefruit (although, as far as I know, there’s none present here), and grapefruit brings me joy, thus, I’m into this one. Good stuff.
I tried this tea a while ago and was really unimpressed with it. It just tastes sour to me – no depth of flavour at all. Sweetening it didn’t help. I tried blending it with other teas in my cupboard to make it more palatable, but it didn’t help. Ended up getting rid of what we had left. Definitely not a fan of this one.
This tea is suh-weet! I don’t mind it hot, but I’d rather drink something else. But iced? Yahoo!
It is so delicious, with a great medley of flavours great for an iced drink that is very sweet. If you have kids, I’d say this is a great alternative to sweet drinks loaded with additional sugars. Plus you can always throw in some lemon if you like to taste! I made this in my home (no kids here) where we rarely stock iced tea, and it disappeared in no time! The bright red/pink colour, too, will trick kids into thinking they’re drinking their Kool-aid wannabe stuff. But nooo… It’s tea! So great!
This tea is almost overwhelmingly pink grapefruit smell when I open up the bag. I couldn’t believe it! I’ve been fighting a headache off and on for the last couple of hours, so I didn’t really know if I should attempt this one but something in me decided I should.
It is lovely! I know I say that a lot about the teas that I try, but that’s such a great way of describing how I feel about it.
Brewed it still has a strong pink grapefruit smell. It also has this rich pink colour that is gorgeous.
Taste… MMMMMMMMM I added sugar. I always add sugar. But it took any major tart flavour that I knew was going to be in there out. It’s now just a nice refreshing citrus-y tea. I bet this one would be nice iced.
