International Tea Day: History and importance of this day

It’s official! Tea, one of the world’s oldest beverages, officially celebrated its day across the world on May 21!

The world, it seems, to have joined hands to celebrate the first celebration of tea, in the form of International Tea Day on Thursday as called by the United Nations.

The day was chosen as May 21 because the season of tea production starts in May in most of the tea producing countries.

The United Nations came on Twitter extending greetings on the day to mark the celebrations.

Showering praises for tea, it said, “Tea has many health benefits due to its anti-inflammatory & antioxidant properties.

On Thursday’s first #InternationalTeaDay, find out more about one of the world’s oldest beverages.”

The United Nation, earlier in 2019, did recognise the importance of one of the world’s oldest beverages.

UN, besides recognising the medicinal property of tea, has also considered tea as an important ingredient of its Sustainable Development Goal programme.

The organisation hopes that tea shall play a strong role in combating poverty and hunger across the world

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) made a start to celebrate the international Tea Day on May 21.
Earlier, on December 15, International Tea Day was celebrated but only in tea producing nations which included Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, Tanzania among others.
