On May 5, a festival of organic tea was held in Ozurgeti (Georgia), during which samples of tea and tea products from various regions of the country were presented. The festival included a conference, the participants of which discussed the tourism potential of the Georgian tea culture, and a certification session for national judges of Tea Masters Cup Georgia.
