The Way of the Tea: discover the beguiling beauty secret of the geishas in this enigmatic, uplifting chocolate

Camellia oil (Camellia oleifera), extracted from the seeds of the tea shrub has been used in the East for centuries to rejuvenate and revive the skin. Japanese geishas, guardians of the tea ceremony, have long understood the oil’s ability to keep skin flawlessly smooth and hair lustrous.

Our cold-pressed, refined organic camellia oil is sourced in China. Rich in antioxidants, as well as the fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E, its subtle, sweet, slightly herby aroma blends beautifully with the clean, uplifting citrus of our Italian bergamot essential oil – extracted from the rind of the bergamot orange, with an enigmatic flavour registering midway between lemon and grapefruit – to create this exotic fusion inspired by the classic combination of Earl Grey tea.

Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) originated in Calabria, Italy, in the mid-seventeenth century: the naturally occurring cross-pollination of a lemon and a bitter orange. The aromatherapeutic benefits of its stimulating, reviving oil are said to include the relief of stress, anxiety and depression. It’s also reputed to balance hormones and support the immune system. Possessing several active ingredients, and rich in polyphenolic compounds, vibrant bergamot is the only citrus to contain melitidin and brutieridin – both known for their anti-cholesterol action. Bergamot’s delicate, beguiling aroma is also a favourite ingredient used by the luxury perfume industry.
