Narrative Changers, a pressure group in the Upper East Region, led by its Chairman, George Solomon Gbenga, is full of praise for A1 Radio, a subsidiary of Agreed Best Communication Company, for the initiative of bringing its listeners and panelists together to celebrate International Tea Day.
Over the weekend, A1 Radio, a subsidiary of Agreed Best Communication Company, with sponsorship from AquaBolg Natural Mineral Water and Amazing Grace Bakery, held an event to celebrate International Tea Day.
The free event brought together ardent listeners of A1 Radio, who were served cups of tea along with bread and biscuits.
Speaking at the event with General Manager of A1 Radio, William Nlanjerbor Jalulah, Mr. Gbenga said, “This is the first of its kind in the region. It is a great collaboration between AquaBolg, A1 Radio, and the Amazing Grace Bakery. About three days ago, I saw this on your timeline. I saw you call, and I told the Narrative Changers that we have been invited to come and mark this occasion, and they were all excited. They were asking me, How is International Tea Day celebrated? I said I didn’t know anything about it, but I said, let us go, and when we get there, we will see. We have not been disappointed at all,” he said.
He encouraged A1 Radio to continue to hold such social events to serve as a bridge between the media platform and its listeners.
International Tea Day is honoured around the world, drawing attention to the cultural significance and economic influence of tea in many countries. This annual event honours tea’s rich history and different traditions, as well as its critical role in encouraging sustainable agriculture and supporting the livelihoods of millions of people.
Tea lovers and industry professionals alike celebrate International Tea Day by organising events, tastings, and educational activities to raise awareness about the art of tea cultivation, processing, and consumption. It provides a venue for people to appreciate different types of tea, including black, green, white, oolong, and herbal infusions, by highlighting their distinct flavours, smells, and health benefits.
The global tea industry is a major contributor to local economies, providing employment opportunities for farmers, traders, and workers involved in tea production. International Tea Day serves as a reminder of the importance of sustainable tea farming practices, emphasizing the need to protect natural resources, promote fair trade, and ensure the well-being of tea workers.
