Our talented pastry chefs start the New Year with a celebration of Tsubaki or Japanese camellias. Tsubaki is in full bloom at this time of the year in Japan. It is a symbol of perfection and love. There is a lovely phrase for describing the red Camellia, “You are a flame in my heart”.  Floral flavours delight the senses with delicate notes in a selection of herbal infusions and teas.
