Tea is so much more than a hot beverage.
Tea offers health benefits, calms the body, and invokes wonderful memories. The soul relaxes when tea is being served, and good company is being shared.
Today is International Tea Day, which was first observed in New Delhi in 2005. International Tea Day reminds us of tea’s cultural and economic significance, while also promoting activities in favor of its sustainable production and consumption to bring awareness to its importance in fighting hunger and poverty.
