The Body Shop launched the Fuji Green Tea™ range in conventional and authentic Japanese tea ceremony hosted by Malini Agarwal, founder and editor-in-chief of Miss Malini.com. The traditional Japanese tea ceremony also known as Ocha, includes four stages of preparing and serving Japanese green tea, called Matcha. The first stage 'Kiyomeru' consists of cleaning and preparation of the tea. In the second stage 'Atatameru', hot water is gently poured over the Matcha green tea and the mixture is swirled for the color to appear.
