International Tea Day GIVEAWAY May 11th-21st

International Tea Day GIVEAWAY May 11th-21st
✨Giveaway in honour of the upcoming International Tea Day!✨

This day originated as a grassroots movement in the early 2000’s in tea producing regions: India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Kenya, Tanzania to name a few. Farmers were calling for global attention to injustice and inequitable impacts of the tea industry, and coming together to organize solutions. Key regions approached the United Nations and last year the day became recognized by the UN.

We have recognized this day for many years, and the importance of grassroots initiatives. This year we are highlighting international connection to tea & through tea. Leading up to May 21st we will share how tea is shared around the world. Connect with different landscapes, times, cultures, practices, and people through a cup tea.

We believe that connection cultivates care. Tea has always been a plant of connection, revered a tonic for the heart. This one plant (Camellia sinensis) offers many types of tea and even more ways to enjoy it!

There is no ‘right way’ to drink tea…but there are rights for humans and nature to keep in mind when selecting your steep. Working conditions affect the quality of the tea, and thus drinking high quality tea improves the experience for all - farmers to final consumer.

On International Tea Day we will give away two Canadian Tea & Clay Giftsets. Plus each order between May 11th – 21st we will be accompanied by a Tea of the World Gift Pouch. See our posts to discover the region the tea will be from that day!
