A juicy burst of toasted pineapple, squished lemons and orange peel gave an uplifting zip on the nose that sweetened as pink marshmallows joined vanilla pods in banana bread. The fruity sweetness followed onto the palate with an effervescent energy that became balanced by a touch of bitter grape skin and a pinch of spice. With water the citrusy fruits had become lemon meringue pie with white chocolate and a drizzle of caramel. Apples and oranges joined dried papaya while on the palate we found ginger and cinnamon on white icing with a touch of marzipan and tart plums before herbal tea appeared on the finish.
