According to the United Nations:
Recognizing the long history and deep cultural and economic significance of tea around the world, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed May 21 as International Tea Day.
So, let's celebrate tea!
When you think of all the connections that make your cup of tea, drinking tea is not only for your enjoyment. Drinking tea is helping tea production and processing which contributes to four of the United Nations sustainable development goals: the 17 goals.
- Reduction of extreme poverty (goal 1)
- The fight against hunger (goal 2)
- Empowerment of women (goal 5)
- Sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems (goal 15)
Wow. We are doing something good!
How do I celebrate International tea day?
Of course, I appreciate all the people who make it possible for me to enjoy my tea journey. And especially my customers. I want to thank YOU!!
And the other day, my business coach asked me, what are the top three things I have in common with my core customers.
My answers were:
#1: We all like tea. ☕️
#2: We are all kind to each other.
Seriously, my customers are all so nice. Very kind. Especially in the last 2+ years, we all have heard about negative experiences at retail places. But at my store: ZERO!!! I am amazed every day. I really believe that is the tea magic! Hehe 🥰
#3: We are all patient.
We are trained to be. We have to wait for the water to boil. After that, we have to wait again for the tea to steep. Repeat that several times a day. 😉
