The meal: Morning tea is a lighter meal in between a full breakfast and lunch, that usually doesn't have meat and consists of cakes, light sandwiches and fruit. This morning tea didn't disappoint with 2 slices of warmed banana bread, stewed local fruits and a dollop of ricotta cream. On the side, a bowl of chilled fresh fruit. All accompanied by French-press coffee or tea.
The taste: When the cart came through the aisle, the scent of the banana bread was as if it was freshly baked in the galley. Just before serving, the flight attendant offered a generous dollop of the ricotta cream that was perfectly sweet with the tartness of the stewed plums, apples and peaches. As a whole, the fresh fruit left us feeling light for the remainder of the flight. One thing not pictured was an additional piece of sourdough or wholegrain bread, that we opted against since bread was the main part of the meal.
Entire flying time is just under 90 minutes, so we were impressed with the level of service and quality the meal provided. We tip our hats to Qantas on this meal and hope this is the beginning of good things from the red roo.
