Inspired by the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany, the American decorative artist famous for his rose glass lamps. Legend has it that around the turn of the 19th century a tea trader visiting China from America brought with him a Tiffany lamp as a gift to plantations owner. The lamp was prminently displayed in the window of the home so could be viewed by all who passed. One of the plantations artisans became so mesmerized by the lamps colours one evening he decided to create something of his own. He took some of the finest processed leaves he could find and pluck some fresh rose buds. He painstakingly tied the together with string to evoke the shape of the lamp.
The tea has grassy green hints with rose notes.
