In 1903, while traveling in the province of Yunnan, China, uncle Albert had admired the flawless porcelain-like skin of the local women. Their well-kept beauty secret was a tea flower oil 茶花 (cháhuā), also known to the Japanese as Tsubaki and to the West as Camellia Japonica, a member of the tea family. This magnificent flower was growing in altitude forests and had been admired for their beauty since the Song dynasty.
