In Japan, tea is more than just a hot drink. A ritual with a deep meaning within Japanese culture, a lot of importance is placed on both tea and the tea ceremony as it represents purity, respect, harmony and tranquillity. Over the centuries, Japanese people have enjoyed drinking tea to feel a sense of relaxation and appreciate the earthy, bittersweet flavour.
On top of having beauty secrets passed down from one generation to the next, the Japanese also understand the importance of inner beauty. As our environment and lifestyles change, we constantly need to develop self-care habits that fit our daily lives. Drinking tea regularly can provide overall health benefits to our bodies.
The beauty benefits of drinking tea
Tea offers many health benefits - both inside and out. Tea starts with water, and water is one of the most essential elements in keeping our skin clear and healthy. Popular teas such as green tea are jam-packed with antioxidants and sun damage-fighting agents, helping to prevent wrinkle formation.
By consuming a balanced diet and incorporating tea into our daily lives, we can efficiently draw out our body’s inherent strength, achieving balance both internally and externally.

How to prepare your tea:
EDOBIO's new tisana herbal teas can be enjoyed both hot and cold, and preparation depends on your preference.
One of the biggest differences between hot and cold tea is flavour and aroma. Cold tea tends to make flavours more subtle, while warm or hot tea allows you to fully enjoy the scent and subtleties of the tea's flavour. However, cold tea is more refreshing and is perfect for consumption throughout your day, whereas hot tea is better in the morning as part of your routine or after your meal at night.
No matter how you like to enjoy your tea, there’s no denying the multiple benefits that it provides. Made to fit in with the values and lifestyle of our modern lives, the new tisana herbal teas from EDOBIO’s Inner Beauty Series are both functional and a treat for the senses.
