The nose led to a garden – sunshine, cut grass, a fruit bowl (with nectarines, tangerines and bananas) and tea served with honey on digestives and granny’s home-made tablet. On the palate, the tea was joined by Turkish coffee and we got burnt caramel, ginger snaps and chewing a twig. The reduced nose made us think of buttered crumpets, Black Forest gateau, bourbon biscuits, pancakes with lemon and sugar and ‘stacking the wooden shelves in a sweetie shop’. The palate turned back to tea, with Danish pastries and hot cross buns; a slightly dry finish of pepper, coriander and suspicions of menthol.
