Significance Of International Tea Day

International Tea Day is more than about celebrating one of the world's most popular beverages, as it also strives to improve the working conditions of tea growers and workers. Tea-growing countries often enjoy significant profits, but many individuals employed in tea farms and factories continue to experience poor working conditions. Therefore, International Tea Day also aims to encourage discussions related to working conditions, labor rights, wages, social security, employment security, and occupational health and safety. The day is also important as it highlights the contributions of tea workers in tea-producing nations. Additionally, International Tea Day is a celebration of tea culture and recognizes the beverage as a major export in tea producing countries.

Activities 

Most activities that occur on International Tea Day are championed by worker organizations, trade unions, and civil societies. They coordinate seminars, public events, and conversations addressing the concerns of workers and the world tea trade. These organizations also engage in charity events such as those aimed at supporting education for girls and donations for health care initiatives. They raise public awareness about the process, from the growing stage to the packaging and exporting stage. Trade unions also seize the opportunity to present charters of demands to national governments. These demands may relate to the welfare of workers, terms of employment, or fair trade practices for small tea growers.
