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

Thanks go to wheezybee for sending this to me during our swap.

I keep hoping that with the continuted exposure to citrus I’ll start to like it, but so far that hasn’t happened. My citrus hate aside, I really needed an herbal tea tonight. They’ve always been so relaxing to me and I’ve been really stressed (and tea deprived) the last few days.

I was pleasantly surprised when this didn’t turn out to be as tart as I had expected. The other ingredients manage to balance out the hibiscus, but I didn’t really care for it. I’m starting to wonder if my taste buds are on the fritz because this tasted like sage to me while it was hot, but I didn’t get that at all once I had iced it down.

I hab a cold…snif.fle..sneeze…and just got my DAVIDsTEA shipment from Canada today…so against my better judgement (just knew this was not going to cut it) I did a 5 minute steep of this with some sweetening, no milk (yucky). Howdy Doody Hollywood! Almost had a miracle cure! Fantastic margarita madness citrus mandarin like those orange slice candies…you know the ones…gum drops. Made me feel better, not bitter.

One thing that I’ve tried before that I might do again in the Summer is simmer some tea like this one with honey, strain and enjoy. This is especially good with a tea that has habiscus and makes a slightly pink honey. Nice on berries with Greek yoghert or in a duller tea.

I picked out some of the beetroot from the teaspoon I was using and it’s made for a much better tea!! more like the tess tea that I reviewed awhile back only not as thick and maybe a tad more tart.
Now that it’s cooled, I’m not enjoying it as much… Note to self: don’t drink this one when up and about!
Cold, it tastes almost like a pink lemonade… which would be fine if that is what I wanted. The thing is, I never was one for pink lemonade! maybe just the regular kind, but not all that often.
It seems to be disappearing out of the packet as well. All the chunks are rather heavy and bulky. I don’t mind that, I need to purge my bin to make room for new ones! :P

Shockingly, I didn’t totally hate the hibiscus in this one. It’s tart, as always, but everything else in there helped to balance it out enough so it wasn’t entirely overwhelming. Had the first steep hot, and then cold-brewed the leaves overnight for a second infusion.

Hot: it was pretty good. Sour like a grapefruit, with lots of other citrus flavors in there too. Cold-brewed: not so much. That made it taste more hibiscus-tart than citrus-tart. Had to dump half the cold cup.

the blend looks like a fruit salad !

Well this one smells awfully sharp. I picked this one up despite my better judgement so let’s see how this goes over.

Oh dear. The dreaded deep pink steep colour. Though the sharpness in the scent has diminishes a bit. Hmm the taste is kind of spicy. Like actual spices. This one isn’t for me.

I tried this in the store yesterday, it reminded me of lemonade but not nearly as good.

Hahaha, ouch. :P

I heard this one tastes like grapefruit, so I avoided the hell out of it.

Why do I not hate this tea? It is full of hibiscus and brews up bright reddish pink but I love it! Pink Flamingo, your lemon and awesome additions just make me love your uniqueness in my collection. I didn’t realize how much I had missed you until the weather warmed up and I wanted something like this on ice. Definitely glad I can keep some for a while longer. And that there is at least one thing I like in the spring collection.

I have to amend my last review..I have grown to actively dislike this tea..I said it was decent before but in all honestly I shudder each time I look at it in my tea vault because I remember that disturbing meaty Hibiscus smell and the taste of fruit catastrophe.I WISH I could taste what all the positivity is about because I can’t at all….There is no 0 rating unfortunately.

This is a fantastic introduction to DAVIDsTEA! The dry mix smells absolutely amazing – almost a mix of grapefruit and evergreen – but when steeped the listed ingredients come out to play. The hibiscus steps out, as well as some of the greenery, but it works.

I usually over-steep my tea a bit, mostly because I don’t bother to remove the teapot’s filter. With each successive cup of this tisane the thought sinks in more and more that this mix isn’t meant for over-steeping. The hibiscus becomes a little overwhelming. In the future I will try to make sure to get better about that.

I love this iced. It’s tart like grapefruit and super refreshing. I had the opportunity to try it when it was offered as a tea of the day. I took it to work with me and by the end of the day all 6 of us had gone to get our own and all loved it.
