International Tea Day is marked every year by tea-producing countries in the world on December 15. Though the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has designated May 21 as International Tea Day, International Tea Day is celebrated in December, especially in tea-producing countries

Countries like India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Indonesia, Uganda, Malaysia, and Tanzania, among others, observe this day in December every year.

The day is celebrated to draw the attention of people and to foresee the amount of impact brought by the tea trade to the workers and the farmers.

According to Times Now, The International Tea Day is observed to raise awareness of the importance of tea around the world. Tea has been a valuable economic commodity throughout history. The goal of this day focuses on promoting better trade practices and working conditions, as well as ethical and sustainable production of tea

International Tea Day was first celebrated in 2005 at New Delhi. The FAO Intergovernmental Group (IGG) on Tea is a forum that observes the varying trends and acts as an intergovernmental consultancy. They have been known to support world tea economy through their efforts and proposed the idea of an International Tea Day which was later adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2019.
