What to do when you’re lounging in the late afternoon sun? Sip this refreshing apéritif-inspired fruit infusion – a sweet and vibrant sunset-coloured blend with grown-up notes of bitter orange rind. It’s light, juicy and will leave you feeling bubbly all over. For an elegant treat, serve it chilled in champagne flutes with a delicious assortment of cheese and fresh fruits. Cheers!

After that last one, I purposefully picked something that I expected to be tart.
This one is pretty tasty. And it brews up such a lovely light coral color! It’s sweeter than I expected, but it is nicely balanced by tartness. Sweet orange is the primary flavor, with some more tropical fruits in the background. Perhaps pineapple and passion fruit. There’s also a bit of lemon here, and a touch of balancing bitterness.
This tisane is really reminding me of Pixie Stix right now. Probably the orange ones? Which sounds weird but is actually quite tasty if you’re in the mood for a fruity tisane. :P

I’ve had a sample of this before, and since it’s being retired (at least the website said it was, but it doesn’t explicitly say it now) I figured I’d grab 2 oz while I still can. The flavor is a light orange. It’s quite refreshing either hot or cold, but I think I might prefer it hot. It doesn’t taste like watered down juice. It’s sweet and fulfilling. I think I’ll raise the rating a bit.
I thought I would dislike this, but I actually love it.
Some delicious orange, pineapple, passion fruit, and lemon. There is a sweetness and a very tasty juice flavour. There is a creamy quality here, too. This makes a great plain iced tea, but is also nice with a touch of sweetener. Unlike many of DT’s herbals, this isn’t sour and hibiscus-heavy.

Unfortunately I’m really tasting the bitter in this tea today – if it was just the orange I think it would be fine, but the lemon has a bitter/pithy edge to it too and I think that’s making it a little overwhelming. Only saving grace is that the pomegranate/pineapple has a nice sweetness to it – but it’s subtle and doesn’t balance out the bitterness, IMO.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
Got a sample to try with my online order. Brews a beautiful bright pink color. It smells like my childhood chewable Flintstones vitamins I used to eat-and it tastes like it too! That might have been a good thing back then but it turns my stomach over now as an adult. Tried this iced.
