International Tea Day

May 21 is International Tea Day.

The tea industry provides millions of people around the world with cups of tea in the morning.

One of the biggest producers of tea, India, recognizes the importance of tea in its communities and as a commodity for commerce.

However, much of the working conditions for those within the tea industry still need much improvement. If you think this holiday was about drinking tea, well think again!

International Tea Day is all about the tea workers and bringing civil rights into action.

Do you love a good cup of tea? While International Tea Day can certainly involve paying homage to tea, we should pay homage to those working in the tea industry.

The best way to do this is by helping to raise awareness regarding their working conditions so they can be improved.
