Fuji Green Tea

Green Tea it’s a bit like marmite you either love it for you lothe it.  Im on the love it team.  Present me with a miracle broth full of antioxidants that tastes nice I’m there. What if I now told you that I’ve recently been bathing in Green Tea, you probably think that my Green Tea intake has slightly got to my head!  Well you won’t be that far off.  After learning that in Japanese culture some women apply Green Tea to their skin and often bathe in it I was eager to be apart of this secret Green Tea club.  Green Tea is said to help the skin retain moisture and tighten the pores. Lucky for you and unfortunate for me this secret club is no longer a secret as Green Tea is going global in the form of the Fuji Green Tea range. I was lucky enough to be invited to a Green Tea Ceremony in launch of the new range, to revive the body and detox the mind.

The Green Tea Ceremony

IMG_6012

As Tea Ceremony’s go this is definitely my first one. In brief during the tea ceremony the Tea master entered the designated area and greeted us his guests with a bow. He then took a seat in front of the pre-laid out table and started to get into a meditative state to prepare the tea. The Tea Master begins to clean and prepare the Tea serving utensils.  Next he adds the Tea to the bowl in this case the Tea pot and and mixes the Tea and the water together, leaving it to brew for 1- 1.5 minutes. He then serves the Tea into small cups (which during a normal ceremony would be straight from the bowl).  As we each receive some of the Green Tea the Tea Master asks us to inhale the Tea and and take a pause, gently sipping the Tea, holding it in our mouth before drinking it to really taste the full flavour of the Tea.  The concept of a Tea ceremony is to pause and take a few moments out form your day to reflect and relax.  I do have to admit that this was the best Green Tea I have tasted in a long time.  Maybe it was because i didn’t make it, or maybe it was down to the tea leaves. Either way I took a pause and for those 10 minutes felt extremely relaxed.
