Green tea is obtained from the same plant cultivated on the tea plantations of Asia where black tea is produced. The difference between the two is the low rate of oxidation permitted while processing the leaves of the former. Green tea not only makes a satisfying brewed beverage, but the dried leaf is also used to produce infusions and extracts for us in skin toners, liquid soaps, shampoos and other cosmetics. The powdered leaf is used in facial masks and body powders, sometimes in combination with other powdered herbs.
