The Green Tea Book:
China's Fountain of Youth

by Lester Mitscher Ph.D., Victoria Dolby
Paperback (1997)

Lester Mitscher and Victoria Dolby explore the beverage's health claims in The Green Tea Book.  Using scientific research, The Green Tea Book examines each benefit, from the prevention of cancer and heart disease to simulating mental clarity and reducing cholesterol levels.   Polyphenols, naturally occurring compounds found in green tea, supplement the body's antioxidant levels and are the primary mechanism by which green tea prevents the formation of cancer.
In addition to the health benefits, Mitscher and Dolby present the history of green tea as well as guidelines for choosing, brewing, and storage.   The Green Tea Book is the complete guide to green tea and will help you understand why it works and how you can use it for both its health-promoting qualities and its great taste. --Gretel Hakanson

by Diana Rosen
Paperback (1998)

It’s Easy to Be Green with Tea Book!
The myriad uses and benefits of green tea have been recognized for centuries by Eastern cultures and are finally gaining notice in the Western mainstream. Author Diana Rosen, in "The Book of Green Tea," explores traditional and modern uses for various green tea blends. "Green tea, my friends, is poetry," begins Rosen, who describes her own discovery and ever-deepening appreciation for the tea. She then reveals the greater historical importance of green tea, spinning true tales ripe with royalty, treachery, folklore, religion, and espionage. Gently duo-toned photographs compliment the text beautifully. Rosen details the differences in varieties as based on cultural and geographical growing and production techniques, explaining how processing methods produce dramatically different tea. She also suggests optimal methods for storing, brewing, and presenting the tea. "The Book of Green Tea" includes many beauty applications, cooking recipes, craft suggestions, and ideas for the home.
