On first nose, confectionery abounds with lemon bonbons and refreshers. Then sweet treats in the form of lemon curd and custard tart, meringue topped banoffee pie and a healthy serving of hazelnut liqueur. The taste is that of cloudy limeade, cherry flavoured sweets and strawberry liquorice. One panellist was making raspberry jam. Water stirred up the freshness of summertime with grassy and floral scents in the garden. We indulged in marshmallows, and fruit pastilles, washed down with mango smoothies. The fresh taste held mint leaves dusted with icing sugar, orange oil, chocolate biscuit and pear drops. The finish was unexpectedly salty-sweet, like seared scallops drizzled with lemon juice.
