Restorative tea ceremony
In this program, a Kampo therapist will identify your distinct body pattern, the characteristics of your body energy, by examining your tongue. According to the results, the therapist will add some Kampo medicine herbs to the tea ceremony. A combination of Green tea and Kampo medicine is known to have positive effects on the body.
Patterns in Kampo
Kampo therapy has a systematic method of diagnosis and treatment. The diagnosis is called a “sho” or a pattern.
In this program, the therapist will distinguish your pattern (hot or cold) by a tongue examination.
Then herbs will be selected based on your pattern and added to your tea.
Sencha tea ceremony
There are two kinds of Japanese traditional tea ceremony.
Most people know the “Matcha” tea ceremony which uses green tea powder.
The other, “Sencha” tea ceremony is less known by the world and it uses tea leaves.
Sencha was brought to Japan in the mid-17th century and was widely adopted by Japanese citizens. Approximately, 80% of all tea produced in Japan is Sencha.

The benefits can be varied such as anti-photoaging, stress resistance, and neuroprotective and autophagy properties(Prasanth MI et al,2019).
