After a quick tea inventory I discovered that not only was my tea closet filled to the limits with teas of many flavors but my bathroom, refrigerator, and snack supply also contained tea in one configuration or another . . . An emulsion, infusion, or ingredient, RTD, powder, as well as spice.
Imagine my amazement when I started gathering products I had easily available that contained tea . . . Wow! I have accumulated skin care tonique, moisturizer lotion, facial cleanser, and make-up as well as tea hard candy both black and green tea, matcha/ginger spice, matcha filled chocolate cookies, matcha Kit-Kats, matcha filled wafers, and probably my favorite matcha filled chocolates . . . yummmm. Oh yes, and don't let me forget the tea-dyed scarf I love to wear. . . It goes well with my teapot tunics.
You are probably asking, "is there really tea in those products?" Well being the tea snob that I have been told I am, I check the ingredient list to see if there is actually "tea" included. Okay not all have tea listed as the first or among the first five ingredients but I have found the majority of the products did include tea. To be absolutely honest I am not sure of the products that have the labeling in Japanese or Chinese but the tea taste is evident . . . At least for my palate.
Okay so I have all these products but, do they make a difference . . . According to me, they certainly do. Here's is just a quick list of the differences/improvements I have experienced
- Tea blended with bath salts do relax and detox my skin
- Matcha facial moisturizer softens my skin
- Matcha facial scrub has helped even my facial tones and lessened skin folds (my term for wrinkles)
- Green tea tonique leaves my face feeling relaxed, clean, and cool
- Matcha smoothies keep me detoxed, regular, and well
- The tea candy is delicious, especially the Matcha filled chocolates.
Keep in mind these are the products I tested and kept because I was pleased and found them worthwhile.
Raising my cuppa to you and an increase of tea products in your life.
