Message from the Chairperson
Chairperson of Executive Committee of Shizuoka Forum on Health and Longevity
From long time ago, tea has been considered as a healthy beverage, and recently people’s interest in tea’s benefits to support and enhance well-being is increasing. Also, scientific research on association between tea and health effects is going on in many fields.
In this situation, we have selected the theme of this year’s Forum “Healthy Longevity and Tea,” and will hold the Forum at the same time/site with “World O-Cha (Tea) Festival 2019.”
We hope that this Forum will become an opportunity to think about how tea can contribute to our healthy lifestyle and a Society of Health and Longevity.
