You might have noticed in a few blog posts recently that I have’t been able to give my posts my full creative time and attention. This probably is quite a good thing as there has been a lot less butchering of different recipes, but I also have to admit that, unfortunately, this week is no different.

While the decision was in some ways last minute on the whole they turned out pretty well. The smoothness of the tea works well with the caramel and the hint of lemon helps cut through some of the sugar.
