This unique green tea mask is especially effective for its moisturizing, super antioxidant, anti-aging properties, to reduce inflammation, to detoxify, deodorize & thoroughly cleanse the skin of bacteria, to encourage blood circulation, to refine pores & for its advanced healing & soothing action.

For more profound benefits, blend in a few drops of “Sayuri" - Camellia Facial Oil - used by the most beautiful Geishas in Japan, for more than 1,000 years!) Apply a generous mask layer over the entire face & neck. Leave on 15 - 20 minutes ONLY (a mild tingling sensation & pink effect is normal) & gently tissue off the excess, thoroughly wash off the remainder, with cool to warm water or a mild cleanser. Pat to dry with a soft face cloth – DO NOT RUB. Moisturizer is not necessary, however, a light application of Camellia Facial Oil may be used. (A green tea mask is recommended once per week & is an excellent therapy for acne/oily or problem skin & may be used anywhere on the body.)
Measure 1/4 tsp. of Matcha Sencha green tea powder into a warm Epsom mineral salt bath & soak for a minimum of 20 minutes. Rinse or shower off thoroughly & pat dry. Use a pinch or two in a foot bath – soak for at least 10 minutes, rinse & pat dry. Make a thick paste, with water, use a Q-Tip & dab DIRECTLY onto blemishes, on burns, etc. (not all over) & leave overnight. (May stain linens.) Completely but gently wash off, in the morning.

L-THEANINE in Japanese Green Tea
by Janina Kulhay-Matsuda, "Green Tea Therapy" Specialist
L-theanine is considered one of the main components responsible for the soothing, satisfying, unique flavour of green tea, which is called "umami," in Japanese. L-theanine is a nutritional supplement for relaxation and mood modulation, which increases alpha-waves producing mental and physical relaxation, decreasing stress and anxiety, without inducing drowsiness.
L-theanine is a special, free-form, non-protein amino acid, found naturally in the green tea plant, called "Camellia Sinensis" - making up 50% of the total free amino acids in the plant. L-theanine is found only in the tea plant and in certain mushrooms of the Xerocomus Badius family and also in some species of Camellia Japonica and
Sasanqua plants - both closely related to the Camellia Sinensis family (which is a "coniferous” – evergreen shrub.)
Japanese green tea contains much higher concentrations of L-theanine than other teas, grown in Chinaor elsewhere and the high quality, loose-leaf, Japanese “Sencha” and “Matcha” green tea powder, naturally contain significantly more L-theanine than the low quality, over processed teabags, more commonly used.
Theanine is different from the Polyphenol and Catechin major group of antioxidants for which green tea is typically heralded and therefore, widely consumed. In fact, through the natural production of EgCg Polyphenols, the tea plant converts theanine into catechins. This means that tea leaves harvested during one part of the growing season may be high in catechins (good for antioxidant benefits), while leaves harvested during another time of year may be higher in theanine content (good for anti-stress and cortisol-controlling effects). Two cups of green tea are expected to contain 100-200 mg of theanine, but it is not the quantity of green tea consumption per day which is important, rather the regularity or consistency of drinking it, everyday that has the most significant effects on health.
Japanese green tea has the lowest amount of caffeine of any green tea. In addition, the ability of theanine to block caffeine's stimulation is much greater than caffeine's ability to stimulate, so 80 milligrams of theanine in a mug of green tea more than offsets the minimal 5 -10 milligrams of caffeine it
making it safe and beneficial for even pregnant women, stroke and cardio patients
The unique aspect of theanine is that it acts as a non-sedating relaxant to help increase the brain's production of alpha-waves (those associated with "relaxed alertness"). This makes theanine extremely effective for combating tension, improving sleep patterns, moods, stress levels and anxiety, without any negative side effects. By increasing the brain's output of alpha waves, theanine is thought to control anxiety, increase mental focus, improve concentration and even promote creativity. It is scientifically-documented to improve Alzheimer's, ADD, neurodegenerative conditions and cognitive repair, when regularly consumed.
Theanine increases brain levels of gamma amino butyric acid, a calming neuro-transmitter, while caffeine decreases it. Theanine also affects levels of both Serotonin and Dopamine neurotransmitters in the brain. Serotonin is one of the major mood-enhancing neurotransmitters and dopamine is our "reward" neurotransmitter. By shutting down the "worry" mode and increasing the ability to concentrate and focus one's thoughts, as measured by increased generation of alpha waves, reports indicate that theanine makes learning easier and generally improves overall health and the quality of life for those who drink Japanese green tea, daily or take theanineina supplement form, as directed by their health professional's advice.
Many health practitioners are now recommending L-theanine in its more natural form, by drinking Japanese green tea, as part of a healthy nutritional programme and they’re also advising patients to stay away from drinking acid-forming foods and beverages - especially coffee, with its high levels of caffeine.
