Last year I was introduced to the concept of cafe blanc when I refused a late-night cup of coffee due to the caffeine content. The cafe blanc (directly translated as 'white coffee') is the Lebanese alternative to decaf Nescafe. This see-through, orange-blossom tea is on offer at its namesake Cafe Blanc, a modern restaurant serving gorgeously presented Lebanese cuisine. This week I tried the cafe blanc surprise which includes a dash of rose water and lemon peel. Super soothing and incredibly appealing to look at. Pity it's all over so soon.
