As this is the month of good health and wellbeing, we really can’t get through it without talking about green tea. A personal favourite in the beverage department, I am fairly sure this is something I have to such excess that it ceases to be of benefit. Nonetheless, because I like it, and because current wisdom dictates that it is all sorts of good for us, here are three ways I highly recommend you jump on the green tea band wagon!
Camellia’s Personal Blend at Luton Hoo
In its most traditional form, green tea is there to be drunk, but adding a twist with a hint of lemongrass, lemon peel, and ginger, the Personal Blend made by Camellia’s Tea House for The Spa at Luton Hoo is a wonderfully light way to enjoy it for anyone who usually finds it a little abrasive. It smells fresh, and it’s the sort of drink to take time over – something most of us don’t usually do, let’s face it. It’s a loose tea, so grab a strainer and the paper, and sit and muse for a while as you sip – preferably in-spa post-treatment.
Green Tea and Coconut Body Polish at Macdonald Berystede Hotel and Spa
If you are not a tea drinker then it’s pretty hard to argue with the general pleasure of incorporating it into a body polish. Admittedly, I would find any reason to have a spa treatment, but the Elemis scrub is a pretty perfect way to get your skin in shape before a holiday, or to keep that tan a little longer when you return from a week on the beach.
Green Tea and Lavender Facial Cleansing Grains from The Mountain Rose Blog
For days when you want to make your evening ablutions or weekend routine a little more indulgent in a wholesome sort of way, turning your own bathroom into a mini spa is always a pleasant way to spend time without breaking the bank. For which reason, the Green Tea and Lavender Facial Cleanser as recommended by herbal musings blog, The Mountain Rose, is simple and easy … amongst a selection of other green tea concoctions that combine to a complete collection of homemade products that are definitely worth a try!
