Matcha Clay Masque

This grade of matcha is not for drinking. Refer to the "Use" section for how to prepare the mud masque.
Both black and green tea originate from the same plant, the Camellia sinensis. However, the final product differs in style, taste and caffeine content due to differences in processing. Green teas are not fermented or fully oxidized like black teas, but instead steamed or pan fired.
Like black teas though, green tea contains an abundant source of natural plant-derived antioxidant compounds called polyphenols. Included within the broad antioxidant polyphenol class are flavonoids and catechins. A kind of flavonoid, catechins are found in tea leaves and may provide protective antioxidant action against harmful free radicals.
Research shows that these free radicals cause heart disease, some kinds of cancer and increase the risk of strokes. Drinking green tea with its high antioxidant levels help protect the body by combating dangerous free radical activity.
Further health benefits of green tea may include lowering cholesterol, strengthening the immune system, promoting healthy blood vessel functionality and even protecting teeth and bones. In addition, green tea provides a source of nutrients including magnesium, Manganese, potassium, calcium, and the vitamins C and K all in trace amounts.
