This plant is used to make chinese tea and green tea. There are many types of Camellia plants!
Contains high levels of antioxidants to prevent free radical formation; soothing properties to help calm sensitive skin; nutrients to nourish devitalized skin; and emollients to create a healthy dew-like complexion. White Camellia oil is also one of the rare ingredients that is wonderful for all skin types, including mature, ultra sensitive, oily, combination, and acne prone.
Camellia sinensis is the plant to make tea - black and green
It is imperative that when making green tea that you do not use boiling water to steep it in, the water should be just shy of boiling to keep it's antioxidant properties.
The reason black tea doesn't have the same properties, regardless of being from the same plant, is that black tea has been oxidized and in china is actually known as red tea. We know it as the tea we generally use for iced tea here in the US. You steep it with boiling water because most of the antioxidant properties are removed with the oxidation.
