Every year on December 15 in all countries that hold the status of the world's leading tea producers, Tea Day is celebrated - a holiday of one of the oldest and healthiest drinks on Earth.
The purpose of today's Day is to draw the attention of governments and citizens to the problems of tea sales, the relationship between tea sales and the situation of tea workers, small producers and consumers. And, of course, the promotion of this drink.
The decision to celebrate the holiday on December 15 was made after repeated discussions in many international organizations and trade unions, during the World Social Forum, held in 2004 in Mumbai (Mumbai, India) and in 2005 in Porte Allegre (Porte Allegre , Brazil). It was on this day that the World Declaration of the Rights of the Workers of the Tea Industry was adopted in 1773.
