A sweet honeysuckle aroma greeted us before the scent of chamomile, white chocolate, coconut coulis and toasted marshmallows graced us with their presence. On the palate fresh and vibrant with a smooth texture like a cup of gooseberry rooibos tea infused with lemon and a faint herbaceous smoke of singed rosemary in the finish. When we added water fruity aromas like oranges, grapes and mango appeared before the deeper scent of Turkish delight came to the fore. On tasting it we found ourselves barefoot on a sandy beach caressed by a lovely warm breeze making the living feel easy.
