International Tea Day

The International Tea Day campaign was launched in 2005 by the trade unions, small tea growers and civil society organizations in Asia and Africa to address the issues of living wages for workers and fair prices for small tea producers. The first International Tea Day was celebrated in New Delhi in 2005, with later celebrations organized in Sri Lanka in 2006 and 2008. In 2015, the Indian government proposed expanding the observance of International Tea Day through the Food and Agriculture Organization Intergovernmental Group on Tea (FAO IGG on Tea) -A committee that leads multilateral efforts to support the world tea economy. Consequently, in 2015, during a meeting in Milan, Italy, the IGG on Tea discussed the idea of an International Tea Day. Recognizing the long history and the cultural and economic significance of tea around the world, as well as the significant role it plays in rural development, poverty reduction, and food security in developing countries, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 May as International Tea Day.
