Happy Friday! Our next flavour up is Rose & Lychee, handmade (always!) with Rosewater, Rose Preserves and Lychee Puree. These ones are a bit floral, a little tropical and, we think, really quite lovely!
A couple of quick food facts for you:
- The ancient Greeks, Romans and Phoenicians considered large public rose gardens to be as important as croplands such as orchards and wheat fields
- In the 1st century, fresh lychees were in such demand at the Imperial Court that a special courier service with fast horses would bring the fresh fruit from Guangdong.
