Drinking green tea is a very good habit, as it's thought to be very antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial; three properties that are also active when the absolute is applied on the skin, leaving it soothed, clear and firm.

Description

Description

Camellia sinensis, the tea plant, is a small evergreen shrub with elliptical leaves and white flowers. Different teas are obtained from its leaves depending on how they are treated after harvest. Green tea isn’t processed and oxidised as much as black tea, so it keeps a softer herbaceous scent.

According to legend, tea was first cultivated in China and used during the reign of Emperor Shen Nung (around 2737BC). The tea plant made its way to Japan in about AD800, first regarded as a purely medicinal herb, and eventually becoming a popular beverage. Tea arrived in England around 1660, via the East India Company, spreading to Europe thereafter.

The fragrant absolute is obtained from the dried leaves by solvent extraction in France. It has a very green scent reminiscent of hay and fresh wood but with a sweet note.
