My other go-to tea. I absolutely LOVE this tea. Hot or cold! I don’t find it as sweet as others have said, I love the tartness of it.

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.

If you’ve got kids, I highly recommend this tea. My 2-year-old mostly drinks water and milk but sometimes he wants something sweet. We used to give him a few drops of that concentrated goo stuff (Dasani make one, as do Kool Aid) in his water to flavour it and his favourite variety was pink lemonade but the sorbates in that stuff – SORRY IF THIS IS TMI – gave him the runs.
So I found this pink lemonade rooibos from David’s to be the perfect replacement for the chemical filled juice products. He loves it cold brewed and poured into his sippy cup! I imagine lots of children would like this. You could even pour a little soda water in there to make it fizz. It’s so sweet and tangy. My husband also loves this as an iced tea. I prefer it hot, especially when I have a cold as it’s super soothing. The colour is beautiful too!
This was one of my very first tea purchases and I still like it quite a bit. It’s a really nice lemon tea when I’m sick – add a bit of honey and you’ve got a nice bright lemon tea to make you feel a little better – strong enough to be tasted even when sick but not to strong that you can’t enjoy it any other time too!
The smell from this tea is strong to the point that it kind of hurts your nose and can be smelled from across the room. I found drinking this hot to be a little wierd, because of the strong lemon taste and smell. I enjoyed it most iced poured over frozen raspberries to make a sort of raspberry lemondade iced tea. Over all I would not buy again, since I only sorta enjoyed it iced and found the aroma to be overly artificial.

CUT!!! Come on tea, what are you doing? You are supposed to do it just like we rehearsed (in my head). For you see it is my 100th tasting note (Yay, happy dance)…so it is kind of a big deal. I want it to be about a tea that is super delicious..and that is supposed to be you given my love for pink lemonade..but you have to work with me. Okay? Okay. Back from the top.
Take One: 2 tsp. tea, 8 oz. water, 205 degrees, 5 minutes….
-Blech, what is this?? You aren’t really convincing me of the whole “I’m a delicious pink lemonade drink me because I’m just so good” role that I had envisioned. Your stevia is just not working for me, it’s too overpowering. Wait…maybe it’s not you…perhaps it’s the scenery…let’s cool it down a bit.
Take Two: 2 tsp tea, 8 oz. water, 205 degrees, 5 minutes….this time ICED
-Much better. Looks like you are starting to get the hang of it. You start out strong with the scrumptious pink lemonade flavor that I was hoping for but your finishing notes are just sooooo stevia… sooooo not good. Why is it there to begin with? I don’t want stevia in the center of my stage! Maybe there is just too much of you…let’s try toning you down a bit.
Take Three: 1.5 tsp tea, 8 oz. water, 205 degrees, 5 minutes….
Are we shooting underwater here because you are a bit muted and watery for me. Nice job cutting down on the stevia, though..it isn’t nearly as present as it had been. Can we try amping up the cuteness, though.. I do like a sweet lemonade.
Take Four: 1.5 tsp. tea, 8 oz. water, 205 degrees, 5 minutes….with AGAVE
Okay, this I can work with. We are getting there kid, don’t give up! I’m getting the delicious tangyness and the stevia is toned down…but something isn’t quite right.. too hot again. Stage crew, change the set, please!
Take Five: 1.5 tsp. tea, 8 oz. water, 205 degrees, 5 minutes….with AGAVE..and ICED
Erf… Not enough flavor. Give me a little more pizzazz! It’s a little bland right now…Picture a hot sunny day and all you want is to cool off with a nice refreshing glass of fruity tang..now go sell those lemonade notes!
Maybe you need a costar…
Take Six: 1.5 tsp. tea, 8 oz. water, 205 degrees, 5 minutes….with AGAVE…and MILK (erm..why not? tried everything else:P)
Abort, abort!!! Bad idea.. cup going down the drain. Sorry milk.. maybe we will bring you in next season with another costar…change the main characters just like Doctor Who!
Okay, tea…. I really don’t know what to do with you now. Boss says that you must be used but I can’t figure out how to make the story work. Maybe we will change the plot. It will be about a tea that should have been really good….strives to reach its goal and improves along the way only to crash and burn at the end. Not quite the happy go lucky storyline I was thinking of…but it’ll have to work. Take the rest of the night off, kid.
aside to assistant maybe we should tell David to rethink the whole stevia thing… tea would totally have worked without it. It’s really too bad..there was great potential.
Also, be sure to thank the lovely Ost for sending this one my way! .
This isn’t bad and I don’t think I’d ever drink it anything other than iced but it’s not my favorite. There are certainly strawberry lemonade-esque tisanes I enjoy more (like the tealux angel falls mist, a mixture of some Adagio tisanes or the Teavana one).
The only benefit this has that the others don’t is the addition of rooibos. Drinkable without sweetener, but not quite as pleasant as the others.
