International Tea Day 2021

Virtual Meeting
21.05.2021
 Rome time

The origins of tea stretch back more than 5 000 years, but its contributions to health, culture and socioeconomic development are still as relevant today. Tea is currently grown in more than 35 countries, and supports over 13 million people, including smallholder farmers and their households, who depend on the tea sector for their livelihoods.

 

International Tea Day is an opportunity to celebrate the cultural heritage, health benefits and economic importance of tea, while working to make its production sustainable “from field to cup” ensuring its benefits for people, cultures and the environment continue for generations.

 

The opening ceremony will be opened by FAO Director-General QU Dongyu, followed by a panel discussion that will complement the celebration and touch on issues affecting the tea sector.
