What is Restorative tea ceremony?
Japanese traditional herbal medicine, Kampo, will help to restore your natural balance.
In this program, a Kampo therapist will
identify your pattern (the characteristics of your body energy) by a tongue examination.
According to the results, the therapist will add some Kampo (herbs) to the tea
ceremony. A combination of Green tea and Kampo may help your rejuvenation.
Kampo has a systematic method of diagnosis
and treatment. The diagnosis is called a “sho” or a pattern.
In this program, the therapist will clarify
your pattern (heat or cold) by a tongue examination.
Then herbs are selected for each pattern
and added to your tea.

tea produced in Japan is Sencha.
