Must Try DavidsTea Iced Teas

10376_l1This was a tea that I wasn’t overly fond of hot. I mean I liked it but it wasn’t one that really made me want to go out and stock up on it. After seeing several recommendations to try this tea iced I thought I’d give it a whirl and was not disappointed. This tea blends: apple, hibiscus, raisins, carrot, yogurt bits, beetroot, strawberry, rhubarb, natural and artificial flavouring. The featured ingredients are clearly strawberry and yogurt.

This tea is very sweet and I think that’s why I enjoy it more as an iced tea as oppose to a hot tea. You can surprisingly really taste the yogurt bits in it, which was pretty impressive to me as I didn’t really know how they could get that flavour into a tea form.

I steeped this tea for hours in my water bottle and it tastes great, but it also tasted good after only steeping for a shorter amount of time. Definitely a tea you should give a second chance to if you didn’t enjoy it hot.

10279_l1After having this tea hot previously, I was surprised that I wasn’t as big of a fan of this cold. This tea combines apple, sencha green tea, pineapple, lemongrass, and artificial creamy lime yogurt flavouring. Just like Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait it does feature a yogurty taste when cold. I didn’t notice this as much when I drank it hot. It definitely has the refreshing lime taste to it and is great for a hot day. This tea is not one of my favourites as an iced tea but for sure one of my favourites as a hot tea.

10406_l1Yummy, yummy, yummy! After reading several amazing reviews about this tea, I knew I had to try it! This tea combines a wide assortment of flavours: hibiscus, mango, lemon peel, rooibos, lemon myrtle, lemongrass, stevia, cornflower petals, natural and artificial lime, lemon, and sugar cane flavouring.

I was hesitant at first about this flavour because I was unsure if this tea would actually taste anything like lemonade or if it would just be too bitter for me. I’m learning more and more that I should never doubt DavidsTea. This Pink Lemonade concoction tastes identical to lemonade and is super refreshing for a hot summer day!

I let my tea steep for a few hours, mainly because I forgot about it in the fridge, but it made the tea have a strong pink lemonade taste. By far one of my favourite iced teas yet, and I’m happy that it’s not just visiting for the summer season and is part of their permanent collection.

10291_l1I had some left over of this tea from my 24 Days of Tea calendar from Christmas. I wasn’t too crazy about this tea as a hot tea but I thought I’d give it a try iced and boy am I happy I did. I found this tea WAY better as an iced tea and it actually made me question why it was in the calendar at Christmas to begin with.

This tea combines apple pieces, white Bai Mu Dan tea, orange peel, pineapple, mango, orange slices, freeze dried tangerine pieces, safflower petals, freeze dried strawberry pieces and marigold blossoms. In comparison to Mango Fruit Punch, the fruit punch tastes a lot more like a punch with a variety of fruits as oppose to Mango Madness which tastes 90% of mango. Simply delicious AND this is part of the permanent collection so you don’t have to worry about it disappearing!

What is your favourite DavidsTea to have iced? Let me know in the comments because I’d love to try them!
