International Tea Day 2024

Today marks International Tea Day, an acknowledgement of tea's long and rich history around the world, a celebration of its cultural significance, and a way to recognize the role it plays in supporting farmers, promoting sustainable development and alleviating poverty in tea growing areas. 

The establishment of International Tea Day goes back to 2005, when trade unions, tea growers and social organisations across Asia and Africa sought to raise awareness about the importance of fair prices for tea producers, along with living wages for industry workers. 

The United Nations later established a separate International Tea Day for the 21st of May, which has been observed annually since 2019, and takes on a broader approach. 

To celebrate International Tea Day in 2024, let’s relax with a freshly brewed cuppa, and take a quick look at some of the health benefits of this ancient beverage we all know and love...
