When life gives you lemons, reach for this zippy hot pink blend. One sip is enough to turn any frown upside down. Not only is it packed with rooibos, hibiscus and other good-for-you stuff, it’s also unbelievably delicious any way you drink it. Served hot, it’s a tart and tasty throat soother. On ice, it’s an addictively tangy summer refresher. And if you really want to take it to the next level, freeze it into ice cubes and blend them up with some agave and a splash of vodka. Hello, grown-up slushie.
Ingredients: Hibiscus, mango, rooibos, lemon peel, lemon myrtle, lemongrass, stevia, cornflower petals, natural and artificial lime, lemon and sugar cane flavouring.

I thought that it would taste strong, and (*warning I’m about to make up a word) overpower-ingly tangy. Actually, it was surprisingly sweet and only a little bit tangy!
The person in the store made it really concentrated, and my mom was complaining that her tea pop was too weak. So I tried her tea pop and it actually had less flavor than my regular iced tea. I guess that makes sense…
So overall, it tastes exactly like lemonade! It’s delicious, sweet but not too sweet, and has just the right amount of tangy-ness :) This will definitely the perfect tea to quench your thirst on a hot summer day!
I have tons of mixed feelings about this one because it is simply SO SWEET. I don’t mind excessively sweet teas in the least, in fact I’m generally drawn to them, but the aftertaste on this is like Hallowe’en gum and whatever tangy flavour there is gets completely absorbed by the overbearing sweetness.
That said, it’s pretty good as a pop and my little brother doesn’t mind when I make it for him. And for some reason, I keep coming back to it.
This is certainly meant for iced. Do not steep it hot, EVER. This tea is certainly meant to be iced or tea popped.
Here’s how I do it.
I steep it like crazy as shown in the preparation details, then I’d put a lot of ice in the cup. So in the cup, half full of the tea, and full cup of ice. Which makes for a perfect summer drink.
I didn’t realize this had stevia in it. This is a really sweet, somewhat punchy lemonade flavor tea. I don’t really mind sweet lemonade, but I’m just not a fan of how stevia tastes. To me it’s a very distinctive flavor all on its own, and I think it just didn’t blend in here. It’s all I was thinking about when I was drinking this (iced).
This tea sold out at stores across Canada all summer. It was an instant hit! The people here who gave this tea bad rating must have burnt off their tastebuds. :) This is my FAVORITE DAVIDsTEA. It is not too sweet, it’s not too tart, it’s PERFECT. I take no sweetener in it as I LOVE how tart it is. As a tea pop, it is divine; it’s more than tea at that point—it is a treat! It is of course very citrusy with a hint of sweetness in the beginning of your sip. There is always a bite at the end of the sip. A must try.
This tea had such great potential! It smells amazing and the taste is definitely there, but I just can’t get past the stevia. I unfortunately have to agree with many of these comments that it is too sweet and the aftertaste from the stevia is very off-putting. If there wasn’t any stevia I think this could be one of my favourite summer teas!
The smell of this in the bag was delicious and very promising. We had this iced and I must say I was pretty disappointed. There was a ton of stuff going on in this tea: too much lemongrass, my boyfriend complained that it was bitter (probably from all that stevia – yuck!) and I kept worrying if the sulphites might upset him. I really wanted to like this tea as it smelled so yummy, but oh well…
Almost forgot how much I LOVED this tea until I was cleaning out the tea cupboard this morning. It is absolute heaven iced, haven’t tried it hot. But it’s definitely one of my favorites. As I use stevia to sweeten almost everything I eat I don’t even notice it. Much better for you then using Splenda or sugar twin! definitely a nice treat. :)
