The wonderful Australian tea emporium, T2, has recently opened branches in London. I’ve been enjoying their Black Rose infusion, an intensely fragranced mix of black tea, rose petals, papaya and mango bits, and blue cornflower blossoms. It looks beautiful, smells delicious and tastes lovely too!

This was the dreamiest, creamiest and fluffiest three-tiered pavlova! Summer is on its way (regardless of the colour of the sky!) and I’ve got berries and whipped meringue on my mind. Find a similar recipe here.
