The world joined hands today to celebrate International Tea Day on May 21, 2021. The day is observed primarily with a view to increasing consumption of tea. The UN has said tea has medicinal value and has a potential of bringing health benefits to people. In 2019, the United Nations (UN) recognised the importance of one of the world’s oldest beverages.
Marking the celebration, the UN took to Twitter to extend their greeting: “Tea is central to many cultures, and it contributes to employment, exports earnings & food security."
