Here's to tea drinkers everywhere !! I love a good cup of tea in the morning, especially if I've had a cooked breakfast. I like mine caffeine free, medium strength, with plenty milk. How do you drink yours? (comment below).
It is International Tea Day on the 21st May 2022 and until recently I did not even know this was a thing, which is amazing considering I love all things to do with tea, tea parties, afternoon tea, high tea, drinking tea...... you get the picture !
I thought it was a funny thing to be celebrating so I looked into it a little further and I became fascinated even more about tea, it's history and it's origins. I also learnt it is the most popular drink in the world, after water. Who knew!!
So what is International Tea Day? well the Food & Agricultural Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations decided it is a day when we should all celebrate tea and to honour those involved in tea production. Here's a short Youtube clip created by FAO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzYMkqFD0Lo&t=31s this tells you more about tea production and the theme of International Tea Day this year, Fair Trade.
As I've said I love a great cup of tea, and all things tea related so I've spent a number of hours researching "all things tea" so keep an eye on my social media posts and blogs as I reveal the secrets of tea drinking and some of my favourite teas and tea shops.
