As expected?? 
Where did you get this --date='TZ=..." syntax?? Not anywhere I could find.

--date=STRING

Read the man page.

STRING works like this:

$ date
Wed Jul  8 16:38:44 EDT 2015
$ date --date=Thursday
Thu Jul  9 00:00:00 EDT 2015
$ date --date="last Monday"
Mon Jul  6 00:00:00 EDT 2015
$ date --date="25 dec 2016"
Sun Dec 25 00:00:00 EST 2016
$
