Il Mistero della Venere
50 grams bag
This blend scented with figs and almonds, much favoured fruits during the Renaissance, is dedicated to Venere of Botticelli's beauty. Among the mysteries of “The Birth of Venus” by Sandro Botticelli, is the identity of the model, perhaps the one that was regarded as the most beautiful woman of her era, Simonetta Cattaneo, died at the age of 23.
As dutiful tribute to Florence and some of it’s priceless art treasures La Via del Tè has created six fragrant blends, the result of a painstaking research on facts, personalities, food and legends of the Renaissance, of which the city is the symbol.
