Tea Appreciation Day 『世界奉茶日』

Tea Appreciation Day

Spring of 2005, Taipei Taiwan
Written by Steven R. Jones

Spirit of offering to extend Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony originally came from a celebration on Mother's Day called “Family Tea Ceremony” (officially held around 500 people and their Family Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony which began May 12, 1991 at Taipei Music Hall Square, has had 14 years of history), and now has expanded for all people, It is held one day during the first weekend of May (or close to it) every year from 2005. People and organizations can gather together to make and serve tea with the attending individuals and passing strangers alike. This activity is healthy, and now in 2005 the universal activity peacefully chooses the name "Tea Appreciation Day". Any person of: an organization, a group, an association, a family, a community, a school, can organize, and unite on this day with individual, at some pre-planned place like perhaps in a public square, and conduct any kind of tea party for the invited people, and even the strangers which might pass by. The activity could even include, lectures or the conversation, and its content should include tea culture related curriculum. Activity leaders must follow local laws and regulations. There is no need to register with any organization (including The International Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony Association), Any written material or announcements including a bulletin board, is just for conveying and promoting the association for people to enter or be informed. In order to promote The International Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony Association, the Association will print a poster every year to make public. If any organization or individual would like a poster they must make a request from The International Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony Association.
