Light, perfumed, dainty, measured and delicate. We were met with the heady scents of a lemon syrup sponge served in a garden centre, with iced tea and Toffee Dodger biscuits on the side. On further exploration it was sweet and peachy, with lychees, vanilla, white pepperzing and burnt orange syrup. Water brought apple scented soap, distant potpourri, rose petals, cut flower stems and white lilies. On the taste we found apple juice jelly, condensed milk and icing sugar with vanilla and dried cranberries to finish. Gentle, yes, but give this time and you will find that it is no shrinking violet!
Drinking tip: We enjoyed this most without adding water
