Tea Rebellion's Green, Long Form has earthy vegetative notes and is a refreshing every day brew.
As is typical for green tea, this tea has been dried before the leaves are oxidized - hence the green color. Long form means that the leaves are left in their natural long form.

Green Tea benefits:
Tea is rich in polyphenols, which are natural compounds that have health benefits, such as reducing inflammation and helping to fight cancer.
Green tea contains a catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Catechins are natural antioxidants that help prevent cell damage and provide other benefits.
These substances can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage. These free radicals play a role in aging and many types of diseases. For all of green tea's benefits, check out this article.

Maria's Pro Tip: Green tea has wonderful antioxidant power for the skin. Green Tea's anti-inflammatory properties when applied topically can help reduce skin irritation, skin redness, and swelling. Applying green tea to your skin can soothe minor cuts and sunburn, too. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, studies have also found topical green tea to be an effective remedy for many dermatological conditions.
You can easily create green tea steam for your face. Simply make your tea in a small mixing bowl and lean over it covering your head with a towel. Make sure not to go too close to the hot steam but you have to be close enough to open up your pores. Leave a small opening at the front of the towel, so you can breathe. Sit like this for 10 minutes, and then proceed with your facial mask, serum and moisturizer.
