Just in time for Ash Wednesday I started a GreenTox® cure. Without knowing what I was really getting into. What I knew was that after Christmas and Carnival I wanted a break.

Here's my summary of how my looks and habits have changed and what insights I've gained.

Matcha is no ordinary green tea powder. For four weeks before being harvested the tea plants are shaded, to have the leaves grow more slowly. Discovered by chance when the plantations needed to be protected from the ash of a volcano, the procedure hugely influences the flavour of the tea. The concentration of precious nutrients such as chlorophyll and tea-polyphenol increases, and the leaf takes on a darker colour. Matcha is ground in stone or granite mills as slowly and carefully as possible. Each production step is carried out with the utmost care and attention, bringing the drink to its fullest richness.
Fresh herbs add an extra kick to tea and can be a decorative eye-catcher for guests or a cosy wellness evening. Spring is the right time of year to grow many of these popular green revitalisers. If you don t have a garden, a plant pot on your balcony or windowsill is usually more than adequate. There are however a few things to bear in mind. Some herbs like the sun, but some prefer the shade. Some like sandy soil while others like damp, nutrient-rich earth.
The fine powder glows a bright green. Matcha, Japanese for "powdered tea” and a central part of the Japanese tea ceremony, is very popular in Germany. Many know it as "Green Chai", "Matcha latte" or even as a non-alcoholic long drink.
Thirst is worse than hunger. Humans cannot survive for more than a few days without fluids. And just as an abundance of water was the catalyst that brought about the progress of humanity, a lack of this precious resource hindered development considerably. More recently, drinks have shaped the political and cultural history of humankind. Alongside coffee, Coca Cola, beer, wine and rum, tea also changed the world. It is the most popular drink in the world after water. To honour the significance of the international tea trade and all actors involved in tea production, from the plantation to the finished product, many tea-producing countries have celebrated International Tea Day every 15 December since 2005.
Why not live one's habits deliberately: when it comes to tea we are real traditionalists - and we stand to it. Tea is deeply anchored in the society, be it the English tea time or the Japanese tea ceremony. And classic tea pleasure does not necessarily have to be simple or spartan. It is worthwhile having a glimpse at the traditions of other cultures and to taste the variations arousing from a touch of cream or a dash of lemon given into the tea.
Organic and quality – these terms belong together. The reason being that those who understand and live the organic thinking will imperatively obtain quality products. The consumers today are more and more estimating products from organic and non genetically modified agriculture.
