Green Tea was first brewed in China in 2737 BC when, as legend has it, the tea leaves blew through a window and landed emperor Chen Nung’s boiling water. This launched the tea as a popular drink throughout Asian cultures. In a book written during the Tang Dynasty of China (600 – 900 AD), green tea is documented as having medicinal properties.
Super rich in antioxidants, Green Tea is an excellent ingredient for balancing the skin’s moisture content, alleviating dry skin, and helping to protect the skin from free radical damage.
