May 21st, International Tea Day

May 21st, International Tea Day

21/05/2021

In 2019, the FAO proclaimed May 21st the “International Tea Day”. 

But how do you celebrate this day? And why are we celebrating?

The FAO wants to promote greater awareness of tea on this day, for the contribution it makes not only to human health, but to socialisation, culture and rural development that takes into account sustainable processes.

The jobs provided by the tea industry guarantee an income for millions of families in developing countries. This help to reduce poverty, improve life and promote food security and rural development by being one of the most traded product in the world.

In India, a country with a population of 1.3 billion people, the tea industry is the second largest employer. It is encouraging to note that women make up three quarters of this workforce, especially as there is usually gender discrimination in these countries.

International Tea Day aims to connect tea producers and consumers around the world. 

It is hoped that a global celebration of tea will help promote activities related to sustainable production and consumption and, above all, raise public awareness of the significant role of tea in the fight against hunger, malnutrition and poverty and the benefits for producers and consumers of the product. 

Tea is the most consumed drink in the world after water and boasts a rich history and culture that has lasted for 5000 years. Let’s celebrate its greatness by dedicating 10 minutes of this day to the infusion of our favorite tea!
