Organic Green Tea
Green Tea, Camellia sinensis: There are three types tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis: green, oolong and black. Green tea is steamed, baked or pan heated to prevent oxidation and thus, the leaves remain green. Oolong tea is partially fermented. Oxidation is cut short so the leaves are black only on the edges. Black tea is fully fermented, producing black leaves. Green Tea is naturally rich in antioxidants and is believed to remove toxins and help rejuvenate skin cells.
It is excellent for both skin and hair care. Tea is a mild astringent and has been used for centuries to cleanse, tone and purify the skin and scalp. One popular folk remedy says to place damp teabags on your eyelids to reduce swelling, puffiness and dark circles. Green Tea leaves can be used as a gentle exfoliant to give your skin a healthy glow.
