Green Tea is often called liquid jade — not just because of its beautiful color, but also for its powerful health benefits. Known to detoxify and prevent signs of premature aging, Green Tea has been a popular beauty remedy for generations.

Science

Green Tea is a rich source of Epigallocatechin Gallate, or EGCG, widely regarded as one of the most powerful antioxidants available. Its polyphenols target free radicals, particularly those caused by UV-induced oxidative damage. TATCHA use a patented sonic-extraction process to isolate its essential actives without the use of heat or chemicals, yielding an extract that is 12 times more potent than conventional extraction methods.

History

Green Tea’s many benefits are referenced frequently in the ancient beauty manuscript that inspires TATCHA’s skin care collection, whether mixed into a tonic, applied directly to the skin or steeped in a teapot to enjoy in quietude. One of the most important aspects of a geisha’s work is performing formal tea ceremonies, which revolve around the preparation of powdered green tea. The ceremony symbolizes harmony, respect, purity and tranquility.

Provenance

TATCHA extracts the complete DNA from Green Tea grown on Chinese plantations in provences famed for producing some of the world’s finest plants.
