When we first tasted these unique almond blossoms, we were astounded. The spring pollen gives the flowers a delicious honey flavour and sweetness, combined with rich notes of almonds, and a soft, green note of buttery globe artichokes.
Terroir is crucial to all plants: the pH of the soil, rainfall, sunshine, flora and fauna and biodiversity are among the factors that make an area unique - also affecting the flavour of the plants that grow there.
Just as grapes can differ from field to field, region to region and country to country - so do tea bushes and almond trees.
Due to their delicate nature, each flower must be harvested individually by hand, then carefully air-dried on a muslin bed to prevent the blossoms from bruising. A labour of love.
