National Tea Day

Celebrate National Tea Day on April 21.

Tea is one of the healthiest drinks on the planet. It gives us a sense of well-being. You drink tea when you are sick. You offer tea to someone sad, and you drink tea to calm down. Sharing a cup of tea provides a time to connect.

With all these amazing benefits, it’s no surprise we celebrate National Tea Day every year on April 21.
