International Tea Day
Around the world there is much that divides the people of planet Earth, but there is one drink that can universally unite us, tea. That is why today, on International Tea Day, we celebrate this simple infusion that has through the course of history transformed nation’s and individuals and continues to be the world’s favourite beverage to calm stress and anxiety during this time of global pandemic. In 2020 The United Nations declared International Tea Day in 2020 to promote its health benefits due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
The day was first announced in the year 2019 to celebrate the history and culture based around tea. The United Nations aims to ensure the availability of tea around the world with the help of sustainable agriculture. It also aims to provide a good quality of life to tea farmers, workers and traders.
