Looks 80, is 101 – Matcha Tea is Longevity Secret
This came in from my friend Izumi Tanaka today. Izumi is a creative professional living and working here in Los Angeles. She is well known for her photography and video projects which you can see at izumitanaka.com.
“I just interviewed on video an Japanese American woman, who I thought was in her 80’s from her appearance and her coherence. As it turns out she’s 101-years old. We asked what the secret of her longevity was…. Well, she was a tea ceremony teacher all her life and believes drinking matcha everyday contributed to her health AND happiness!!!
She was fascinating!!”
Izumitanaka.com features a collection of video projects. I especially liked this one called, “Brochures… Fast Food’s Answer to Obesity”
