Green Tea is often called liquid jade — not just because of its beautiful color, but also for its health benefits. Known to help prevent signs of premature aging, Green Tea has been a popular beauty remedy for generations.
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.
Green Tea’s many benefits are referenced frequently in the ancient beauty manuscript that inspires Kaneya 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.
Kaneya uses Green Tea grown on Chinese plantations in provinces famed for producing some of the world’s finest plants.
