Dearies, the weather is slowly starting to warm up, and Kat is ready to start feeling renewed for spring. We’ve talked about tea beauty products before, but I’ve been reading so much about green tea in the bath, and I’ve come up with a few ways that Kat can use her favorite beverage to relax and cleanse for Spring.
The simplest way to have a good soak is with a few tea bags in the water. Tie 5-6 teabags together and pop in your tub while you fill with warm water. The tea will gently steep and make an invigorating, relaxing soak. You can take the teabags out after the water has just the right amount of tea for your liking. Kat likes to use green teabags from Harris Tea. They are a nice basic green tea that will give you a relaxing soak with a pleasant, subtle aroma. You can learn about where to purchase these teabags here.
Take your love for matcha to the next level with a matcha bath soak! Mix 1 cup of epsom salts and 1/2 a teaspoon of matcha. Place this under the running bath water. This soak will soothe tired muscles, and energize you at the same time! You’ll feel relaxed and focused for your next activity.
You can also harness the fizzy power of a bath bomb! These little wonders fizz until they are completely dissolved by the bath water. These are a fun and creative way to add green tea to your bath. I found that uses easy to find ingredients.
An important thing to note is you should be using culinary grade matcha, not the expensive stuff. You won’t be drinking your bath, so there is no need to use the fancy matcha you keep on hand for your morning bowl of tea.
Or if you don’t fancy the idea of green tea in the bath, how about a relaxing soak while sipping on a warm mug of green tea? I’d recommend trying a kukicha, because it’s much lower in caffeine and the roasted flavor is quite relaxing.
