The most transitional month of the year, the Spring Equinox is finally in its full exodus when the Australian spring has genuinely sprung: unlike September, October sees our seasonal fruits and vegetables in full flight and farms in its full cycle of produce with the birth of baby animals. With a comfortable climate heading to warmer weather and longer days of sunshine, the evenings are still quite cool, presenting an ideal time for light comfort foods that focus on crispy crunching textures while bursting with fresh flavours. Smoked, slow-cooked or bbq’d lamb and roasted seasonal vegetables feature on tables jazzed up by sauces, citruses and spices alongside crisp salads. With the oncoming of summer, it’s about looking to keep things light and refreshing to cast off the shackles - and body reserves - of winter.The intoxicating but subtle aromas and soft delicate flavours of Green Blossom is an ideal tea during October. Consider it a springtime favourite for a light refreshment all year round, and a great diuretic to detoxify and cleanse the body while also promoting a sense of wellbeing.
