Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"While many Ginger Peach or Ginger Orange blends are heavy on the fruit and light on the ginger, this one has a more pronounced ginger flavor. The fruits are the backdrop for the ginger, and the white tea holds its own and is not overpowered."

"This tea’s predominant flavor is a mixture of ginger, lemon-citrus, and an unexpected soap-like element. The ginger is by far the most noticeable ingredient. The raspberry flavor was pretty elusive, but was most detectable in the aftertaste, providing for a sweet finish to an otherwise sharp and crisp tea. This tea is, in a word, intriguing. "
