It’s officially iced tea season. And what goes hand-in-hand with summer? A nostalgic sip of ice cool lemonade. But wait. We’ll do you one better. Take this naturally refreshing and energizing green tea, for example. Tasting of zesty lemon, tart hibiscus and bright beetroot, Hibiscus Lemonade is the ultimate thirst-quencher. So good one glass is just never enough. Pour me another, please.

What makes it great:

Naturally refreshing & energizing green tea base.

Think of it as a great alternative to your average store-bought lemonade.

Best served on ice ice baby.

Green tea*, Hibiscus, Candied papaya (papaya, cane sugar), Candied pineapple (pineapple, sugar, citric acid), Beetroot powder, Organic stevia powder, Lemon, Beetroot, Natural (lemon, lime) flavouring.

Last Summer tea tasting note! This is not really a case of saving either the best or the worst for last, at least as far as my own preferences ago. I just wanted to drink it again before writing the tasting note so that it was more in my recent memory…

I would probably rank this blend somewhere in the middle out of all the new teas, as far as my own preferences ago. I think it’s pretty classic and pretty straight forward tasting without a lot of other frills – just a solid combination of lively flavour that treads the line of tart and sweet really well. Lots of hibiscus and lots of lemon, and I wouldn’t really expect otherwise. It’s on a green tea base which doesn’t really matter a whole lot aside from the caffeine and body that it adds, but occasionally you get a little hint of grassy green flavour in the finish as the hibiscus and lemon subside and the use of green tea over other types, like black, does help keep the flavour direction more bright and refreshing.

I think the most interesting thing about this tea is the inclusion of beet and, like, a not inconsequential amount of it. It does a couple things but probably the most immediately noticeable is that is adds a beautiful colour to the dry leaf of the tea and also deeps the dark red hue of the tea once steeped. Aside from that, there’s a hint of earthiness which I personally feel adds to the much more natural leaning taste of this blend. However, beet is also naturally sweet as well so it’s kind of a nice way to add a different dimension of clean sweetness to the cup.

Overall, it’s a nice blend hot but I think iced (and maybe in a pitcher) is sort of the best way to enjoy this tea. It’s really refreshing and despite having a strong taste it doesn’t feel as heavy and syrupy as a lot of the other hibiscus dominant teas that we carry.

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 and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
