DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea: Day 4 out of 24

Whew, work has been kicking my butt lately, to the point where I haven’t had time to write some tea reviews. However, it hasn’t been too busy to the point where I can’t drink my teas, so I’m thankful for that. I’m going to catch up on writing reviews for Days 4 and 5, and drink Day 6, 7, and 8 today. Good times. :)

Pink Flamingo smells very fruity, and I was definitely able to tell it was a hibiscus tea from the sour aroma it has upon opening the tin. Lemongrass was unexpected though, and made me quite eager to try out the tea! As I watched the mixture brew, I felt like I had been (jokingly) played: the tea was way beyond pink, almost looking like grape juice (my friend who is also doing the 24DoT amusedly referred to the brew as ‘purple drank tea’). The resulting tea was quaffed hot with no sweetener, which was pleasantly sour and citrusy. The lemongrass notes were fine additions to the blend, I enjoyed those. While good hot, I imagine this tea would really shine as a cold, slightly sweetened iced tea for the summer months. I’ll have to give that a try sometime! All in all, not bad. Not the best tisane ever, but it’s earned a spot on my iced tea list.

Flavors: Citrus, Hibiscus, Lemongrass

Just me, drinking tea. Relatively new to the wonderful world of Camellia Sinensis, but there’s so much to explore. Exciting times!

Oolong fanboy, lover of Earl Grey, and predilections for rooibos and chamomile. It’s complicated with green and white teas. A good masala chai is the way to my heart.

Lupicia can take all of my money, I don’t need it anyways.
