Wednesday is Green Tea, White Tea, Rooibos, Oolong and Tisane (Herbal) Review Day!
I won’t lie. I’m a sucker for raspberries. In fact, pretty much anything raspberry. But I am not a fan of ginger. It just doesn’t tickle my fancy. Regardless, this Raspberry Ginger tea from Kokomo Tea is delicious!

The immediate appearance of split raspberries, ginger chunks, white tea leaves, cloves and some stems makes this tea a beautiful sight to look at.
The tea brews up a very very light orange liquor (color) and provides an aroma ginger laden with a faint sweetness & fruit compunction. Notes of a light astringency were also present.
Lightly bitter with clear ginger flavor dries the mouth while providing smooth texture. This tea has a very very light bite and a tail which fades quickly.
I recommend this blend to any tea drinker who enjoyes fruit teas, spiced teas and a captivating flavor experience which isn’t overpowering.
One thought on “Raspberry Ginger (Kokomo Tea)”
The ginger is probably in there for its health benefits in a similar way to traditional Chinese medicine. Interesting that this tea isn’t too strongly flavored even with the raspberries and ginger in it. Maybe then it doesn’t detract from the delicacy of the white tea much.
