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 love this tea! Reminds me of three fruit marmalade!

Cattibrie

I love this tea. Can’t say enough good things about it. Pink Grapefruit all the way.

I made the last of this as a cold brew. It turned out ok. Something about the lemongrass is just hitting me the wrong way. It tastes very lemon peppery to me as a cold brew. I feel like I would like this tea if there was no lemongrass in it. It is not bad but I thought I would love this iced when in fact I prefer it hot. Guess you never know until you try :)

Kittenna

I hated this cold-brewed. Blech! Still don’t know what I did wrong!

Lala

I’m thinking its just not meant to be cold brewed. But I wonder if it would be better brewed hot, then iced.

Kittenna

Very possible! DT doesn’t ever recommend cold-brewing, to my knowledge, just brewing extra strong an pouring over ice.

Lala

Thats good to know.

Super crappy night tonight. My cousin (who is the closest thing I have to a sister since they lived with us when she was little) got married last weekend in Niagara Falls. Small ceremony but the grooms Italian family wanted them to have a party so that is tomorrow night. I told her my gift to them would be the wedding cake. It is not real cake but styrofoam. So far it has cost me about $300 to get the supplies for it. Well tonight I have spent 6 hours trying to get the “cake” covered in fondant. I got the top tier (6inch) and middle tier (10 inch) covered but I have tried 5 times to get the bottom tier done and it just isn’t happening. As it stands now I am out of fondant and am really hoping my cake instructor can bail me out in the morning and cover this cake for me. My dining room table is covered in shortening and I am just done. So stressed that I am not going to be able to get it done and she won’t like a 2 tier cake. So worried about this it isn’t funny.
Anyway to make a long story short (too late) I decided to break into my stash of Pink Flamingo to calm my nerves. Seems to be working. I am really going to miss this tea when I run out as I have found nothing like it. At least tonight it is here to help me out.

Ashley Bain

I’m not having a good night, either :( Can’t sleep because I’m in so much pain.
I wish you lots of good luck in finishing the cake.

Cattibrie

My cake instructor called this morning and she is going to help me at 10am so I am feeling better. Of course my son took a tumble while running in the house and now has a huge goose-egg on his forehead just in time for the wedding. UGH. At least the purple will match his tie for the wedding.
Hope you got rid of the pain enough to get some sleep Ashley.

Jenn

First, you’re a saint for making anyone a wedding cake. That is an incredibly daunting task that many bakeries won’t even take on.

Second, if someone loved me enough to take on such a labor intensive task for my wedding, that cake would be the best most beautiful cake ever in my eyes because it was made with love.

Third, I bet it turns out fab :) Post a picture from the wedding if you can.

Cattibrie

Thanks Jenn. I felt better when we got the tier covered and the proffesional had a hard time getting it done right. Luckily I had a wide ribbon to put on it so that hid some sins.
The cake looked great when it was done. My aunt was in tears when she saw it and the groom made me cry when he thanked me during their speech for an “amazing cake that matched their vision”. I am just glad it is done and hoping that my cousin who is getting married next summer doens’t ask me to do their cake. I think 2 wedding cakes is my limit.
I will post a picture of the finished cake if I can figure out how to do it.

Iced and lightly sweetened, this is tasty. For some reason it reminds me of Tazo’s Passion tea, though this is a bit more citrusy. The hibiscus and tangerine make a nice pair, but it’s not particularly special. I’m glad I got to sample this, but I don’t think it’s something that I will buy for myself.

Thanks for sharing, Sil.

this is excellent as an iced tea with (a ton of) sugar, but i would 100% NOT recommend it hot to anyone who has the same battle with hibiscus as i do.
it is so tart and blech tasting when hot, i don’t even want to think about it again to describe it.
a definite NO for me.
iced though (a cold steep), in the summer, it is quite nice.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I’ve tried this tea so many times..iced at the store..at home..brewed lighter, bolder..I pretty much can’t stand it..!
I wish I could like it more..but it’s pretty much a horror story for me! lol

Calla

I agree….. this tea is way better iced. It isn’t even an option for me to drink it hot, I only made that mistake once. On the other hand, when Pink Flamingo is iced… it is simply divine, truly the definition of an exotic chilled drink for the summer.

This is another tea I got in trade with ladykittykat, and I have to say, this was very nice. Very pink, very sweet, citrus smell. I want this as a cologne :D. Anyway, I kind of lot track of the steeping time for the first infusion, but the taste is amazing. You start out with a hot, vaguely vegetal taste that morphs into this bright citrus tase, then a slightly more vegetal taste at the end. There is a strange counterbalance to the flavors that I like, but it is still rather unusual to have this wonderful citrus flavor kind of bracketed by something so mild.

The second infusion had a better blend of flavors, but it was also a bit weaker.

I really enjoyed this tea, but I don’t know if I will be getting it on a regular basis. I still need to do some experimentation.

I felt the same way about it…until I tried it iced. Takes it to a whole new tasty level.

Yikes! Hibiscus! I bought this before I realized how strong it could be. It was also $2.50 for a 25g bag so I thought why not?

It’s ok, but the rose and hibiscus overpower it. It was tart and terrible when I brewed it hot, but tart and drinkable iced. I just have to empty this last pitcher and I am done with it!

Becky

Argh! Hibiscus! lasers it

The dry leaf smells exactly like grapefruit. I love grapefruit, so this should be good.

Steeped it a long time…don’t know how long. I had it going while I was finishing up another cup. The colour is a dark pink and looks nice in my glass cup.

This is my favorite out of the three fruity herbals I got to try last week, but I still find myself longing for some Kanpe. The taste is tart straight, I think it would be great iced. WAIT I COULD RESTEEP IT OVER ICE! Runs to kitchen and puts tea back in steeper

Omg so much better. I added a hint of honey to my DavidsTea Steeper, and now it tastes exactly like starbucks passion iceteas. Will not longer be drinking hot, it just isn’t as good.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Cedes

Yay great minds think alike ;) no more expensive starbucks for me. Just this tea

Calla

I’ve tried this one before and it tasted too exotic for me. I should try it again

Sweet Canadian

I was unimpressed with it hot Calla, it was so much better once I cooled it down. Cedes, Tuesday my friend and I are going to mix Kanpe and Pink Flamingo because we think that will be spot on with the strength of the Passion Ice Tea :)

Calla

yeahhh I tried making it iced…. I still have some of this tea, so I shall try again.

DaisyChubb

mm so SO good iced!

My first attempt at cold steeping using the last of this tea I own.

After about 4 hours it tasted very refreshing, grapefruity and tasty, however it was just a couple sips because I needed to be out the door for jiu-jitsu. I come back and tackle this tea 3 hours later and it was very strong flavors. Okay but not great.
I should of finished it then, but I put it back in the fridge and tried it the next morning…
OMG Pink Flamingo was so strong it was horrible, like drinking straight up citrus rind of death!

However, this method very much so reduced the tart-o-meter on Pink Flamingo and was more enjoyable before I butchered it by over steeping.

With that said, I learned a lot from the experience.

I’ve already established that I quite enjoy Pink Flamingo, but I’ve never tried a David’s Tea tea iced (outside my iced spearmint tea actually FROM David’s Tea.)
Gotta say, I’m going to be resorting to iced tea a lot more frequently this summer!
Quite a treat.
I’m going to whip up a batch of simple syrup though, because cold things need to be sweet.
Yum!

Hoo god! I must say that I’ve rarely enjoyed an herbal tea this much! :)

Kristin

Agave nectar also works nicely for iced tea (if you are not in the mood to make simple syrup).
