International tea day (not today)


forty-eighth,  and last, in the  weekly series of posts collating all sorts of frivolous information about  taking  tea.

Thursday Tiffin #48:  International tea day (not today)

Since 2005 December 15th  is  international tea day:

International Tea Day to draw attention of governments and citizens on the impacts of tea trade on workers, small growers consumers and the industry. In India, stakeholders including tea related trade unions and small producers recognise international tea day as the event to declare their rights pertaining to wages, livelihood and living conditions.  

Mark your calendars now, because if you’re like me you’ll forget….
