Nosing neat the colour ‘yellow-orange’ came to mind with pictures of mango flavoured Turkish delight, saffron, peeling a satsuma and lemon butter biscuits. Turning greener on the palate we were reminded of a pistachio cake with matcha green tea, green peas and kombu (Asian seaweed) and green sweet jalapeno jelly chilli sauce. After reduction, the lovely sweet and creamy scent of lemon balm developed, followed by aromas of a gooseberry and vanilla custard tart as well as Battenberg cakes. The taste was now soft and honeyed, marshmallows, vanilla pods and red apple flavoured tobacco while in the finish a refreshing lemon-lime mint tea.
