National Tea Day History

National Tea Day seeks to promote and raise awareness about tea. Tea is a beverage that is prepared using hot or boiling water. There are many different types such as green, black, and herbal. What is traditionally known as tea come from the leaves of the East Asian evergreen shrub Camellia sinensis. These leaves contain about 4% caffeine and are typically harvested for tea production. Different teas are created using different methods of harvesting and processing. Some undergo a process called oxidation which involves exposing tea leaves to oxygen in order to dry and darken them. This changes the flavor, aroma, and strength of the tea. This day aims to increase the number of tea drinkers in the world. It encourages tea drinkers to try new varieties of tea and to acquire better quality teas.

National Tea Day seems to have been started in 2005 as a promotion for tea. It is observed annually on 21 April.
