As long ago as the 13th century, a Japanese monk was telling everyone that "tea is a miraculous medicine for the maintenance of health, with extraordinary powers to prolong life. Anywhere a person cultivates tea, long life will follow." Today, after years of scientific research, we understand better why an everyday beverage is so good for our bodies - both from the inside, taken as a drink or used in cooking - but also from the outside - as in some of those old folklore remedies.
Old wives tales and family remedies often recommended cold tea bags for puffy eyes, tea footbaths for tired feet, tea solutions for sunburned skin, tea rinses for dull hair, tea compresses for blemishes.
Recently, it has been found that one of the two major pharmacologically active groups of chemicals in green tea, the polyphenols, are powerful antioxidants - more than 20 times the strength of vitamin E. They can help suppress inflammation and irritation, and provide potent damage control from any irritants that come into contact with your skin.
