Too many different flavours and pronounced tartness. I would avoid purchasing this tisane as the fruit pieces are so large and heavy. This would probably make a nice cold brew.

There’s a slight fruit punch taste, but you can’t really taste it unless you brew it very strong. I’m currently sipping this on a hot and sunny day, and it’s quite refreshing! All the flavours in this are very muted. I just wish you could get a stronger brew with the suggested amount (1.25 tsp) but overall, an good summer iced tea.
Got this as a sample with one of my last tea orders and read some of the comments here and decided to try cold brewing for the first time.
Not sure I did it right, I boiled my water and used the bubble teapot I ordered and let it steep for a little longer than 7 minutes with the miniscule amount in the pouch.
Verdict: looks like pee, doesn’t have a strong flavor in the sample (but I’m sure once you get about 25g to a tin, you’ll get enough for a stronger flavour), but it did smell really good as an herbal tea.
Tempted to mix in some 5ive Alive with this stuff for some more flavour, it just tastes like very lightly flavoured water.
Would have given a bigger rating if there was more in the pouch and maybe if I steeped it longer.
I picked this up the other day when I bought the precious root beer float.
It’s not bad. Mostly pineapple-tangerine, I’m really not getting any mango. It tastes very similar to Teavana’s Wild Orange Blossom or Citrus Lavender Sage, with respect to the orange/tangerine flavouring.
I made it as a “tea pop”. Filled a big canning jar with ice and filled about half way with club soda. Then I brewed about 14 oz tea with 1 tbsp leaf, and poured it right on over. Because everything in the jar was already cold, and there was already liquid, I didn’t have to worry about the glass breaking and it chilled super quickly. Tea pops aren’t necessarily my favourite, but I needed to use up the last of the club soda, and it worked.
I won’t be getting this tea again, mostly because I prefer the ridiculous orangeness of Wild Orange Blossom. It’s also a little cheaper AND only has natural flavourings.
Flavors: Orange, Pineapple
I’m not generally a fan of all-fruit teas, but I received this one as a sample when I purchased some cups from David’s. There is no apple or hibiscus in it, so we were off to a good start. The loose tea is mostly chunks of fruit with red and yellow flower petals mixed in for visual interest. Mine had a couple big pieces of strawberry and then a lot of smaller pieces of candied pineapple and mango. It smells quite tasty. There’s a very strong tart pineapple and mango scent with orange and strawberry frolicking in the background. I steeped the whole sample (a little over a teaspoon) for 5 minutes.
The brewed tea smells almost exactly like Tang! It’s mostly orange with notes of pineapple and mango. It smells quite tart, just like the dry leaf. I was worried that this would just be an orange tea, but I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it. The orange is definitely most present, but it blends beautifully with the pineapple and mango flavors to make one juicy, fruity tea. It was tart, so I added a very small amount of sugar just to take the edge off, and this made it much more tasty. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this tea and I would purchase more. :)
Flavors: Mango, Orange, Pineapple, Tangy
This was a fun, fruity tea. I made this in a pitcher for my whole family to enjoy. It actually reminds me a lot of peach tea because the individual fruits in the blend were not too strong. It was a good tea though and I would have it again.
Flavors: Mango, Peach
It turns out I’ve been making my iced teas all wrong. I was using boiling water, letting it steep, adding the icecubes, and getting rid of the remaining leaf immediately.
This time, I just coldbrewed it in the fridge for a day, and I have to say the flavour is much brighter (also, it turns out that what I thought was 2L was nowhere near 2L, so the fact that this tea tastes okay despite my use what I thought would be an excessive amount of water is even better).
The liquor is a lovely sunny yellow, and I can definitely taste the fruits. It’s quite a light flavour, and I’m sure I’d enjoy it much more if my tongue weren’t half-dead from sucking on lozenges, but there it is.
Also, this is a sipdown.
This was my first Davidstea!! And it’s all thanks to the amazing Ost for allowing me to try it!:]
This tea really did remind me of summertime. I drank it while listening to my lackluster Biology tea drone on and on… it’s really to bad he can’t teach because he is a nice guy. But luckily this tea helped me get through it by constantly reminding me just how close summer is:D
This tea has a beautiful autumn color when steeped. It tasted heavily of orange with a compliment of mango. It was a little tart at the beginning but finished off with a flavor that was akin to fresh orange juice..just not as intense. I didn’t taste pineapple, but it could have just been that particular cup. Over all, an awesome summertime tea. If it wasn’t so expensive, I’d be buying this in large quantities to ice:]
Flavors: Mango, Orange
Just tried this today, brewed in store, as part of a summer sale. Iced, this is juice-like with lots of mango fruit flavors and secondary orange and pineapple flavors. Very clearly fruity, with little to no spice or floral tones (if you’re a skeptic of cloves or mint or whatever, this might be for you). I don’t take anything extra in my tea, so straight up this is still very sweet. I personally would like a tea with a bit more body, so blending this with a favorite green or a herbal rooibos might be a nice option in future brewing.
