International Tea Day

For many people, tea is a daily pleasure. No wonder, after all, tea is the most consumed beverage on this planet after water. In order to honour the importance of tea, its historical roots, its wonderful properties, but especially because of its economic importance for millions of people, the United Nations proclaimed International Tea Day for the first time in 2019. The day is celebrated on May 21st, but because it falls on a Saturday this year, the official UN ceremony will take place on Monday May 23rd.

The Canadian Tea and Herb Association has initiated a "Sofa Summit" for this day - people from different parts of the world take a seat on the virtual sofa to talk about tea with President Shabnam Weber. The Tea Campaign starts at 8:00 p.m. German time. The conversation will be broadcast live on YouTube.
