I took about 3 sips of this tea before I decided I just could not drink it. Not only was it way too sweet but the flavour was atrocious. Clearly judging by the other reviews it was just my taste buds in particular but I am not a fan at all.

This tea is definitely full of flavour! Oddly enough, tastes like grapefruit, even though it doesn’t figure among the ingredients; it must be the combination of the orange and hibiscus that give it that particular citrus-like tartness. Steeps to a delightful, deep fuschia. I find that it doesn’t taste very good when very hot, for some reason it seems to bring out different flavours, but once it’s cooled down to a drinkable level it is quite addicting. Not very sweet, but if you like tangy things, this is the tea for you! I can’t wait to try it iced when it warms up a bit more (spring seems to be a bit late in coming this year).
Finally managed to purchase some of this tea, as it was out of stock for a while in my local store. I’m getting a strange addiction to this tea and find myself craving it after trying it twice. Wasn’t sure about the heavy citrus quality at first, but I figured it might be a nice, refreshing tea for spring. I brewed my first cup for about 7 minutes, and wow, was it zingy. Extreme grapefruit flavours, slightly medicinal in quality, it was kind of love/hate at first. Love sip, hate sip, that’s how my first cup went, although the love grew deeper the more I kept drinking it, and the beautiful pink colour increased its appeal. Once I finished my cup, I was hooked. This tea would be delicious iced, as it tasted good even as it grew cool in the cup. Would definitely repurchase and can’t wait to try it iced when the weather warms up.
The colour of this is perfectly pink, and it smells citrusy and bright. I should have let this steep longer (just 5 minutes) but I can definitely taste the orange after each sip – the lemongrass as well.
Drinking this hot, it reminds me of something I would drink if I had a cold (especially with the Vitamin C and eucalyptus), but I mean that in a good way. As it cools the flavour gets even nicer, so I’m sure it would be best iced.
Alright, I changed my mind. I decided to give Pink Flamingo another try… mostly because I was so enthused about it and very frustrated I found so bitter the first time I tried it. This time I tried to steep it less to see if that would do the trick… and well it did! It was delicious. It had a nice citrus-y, orange-y flavour to it that reminder me of summer under the palm trees. That’s it, I like it!
This tea is very surprising. Full of flavours, colors (I could barely believe how pink it is!) and with a wonderful smell. Its taste is very powerful and also very, very, very lemony. I definitely wouldn’t recommend it to someone who isn’t a big fan of lemon.
I used two teaspoons with a cup of water in almost boiling water, just as it was written on the package and it came out delicious. I think that it’s better to drink this one in the morning. It’ll definitely wake you up and put you in a good mood for the day to come!
