Quote from Diana Rosen's "The Book of Green Tea"

In The Book of Green Tea, author Diana Rosen writes:

In the Shizuoka prefecture, which cultivates tea as it has for nearly twelve centuries, the incidence of cancer is unusually low, even by Japanese standards. The residents of the area drink about ten small cups a day and use tea leaves only once, rather than brewing several infusions from the same leaves, as most Japanese do.

The book has hints for brewing green tea, green tea recipes, and information about the history and health benefits of green tea.
