Young fragrant flowers, still unripe, disclose their full vigor in the pristine transparency of the infusion.

They come from a special Ziya cultivar - just like our Ziya white tea - but they are only picked in autumn, right before blooming. When picked, these precious rose-colored pearls, still glistening with morning dew, enclose the full fragrance of the wild forest tea trees that nourished them, which is only released through multiple infusions.

The delicate petals bloom in the teapot, unveiling a variety of pastel colors, ranging from a candid white to a peach pink, while the edges show a rich purple hue.
The spotless transparency of the liquor fills the air with an intense balsamic aroma and a rich floral bouquet, with lingering notes of white lilies.
