Unveiling the Magic of Rio Carnival

Welcome to our blog dedicated to the vibrant culture of Brazil, home to one of the world's most iconic celebrations - the Rio Carnival. As we delve into the heart of this mesmerising country, we also take a moment to savour the flavours of South American teas, renowned for their digestive benefits and beyond.

Marking the Catholic tradition of Lent, Rio’s carnival ends on Shrove Tuesday, also known as “Fat Tuesday” or “Mardi Gras”.

Rio attracts over a million tourists each year, with a performance from the famous “Sambodrono” -the centre stage for Brazil’s top samba schools. 

This extravagant event is a kaleidoscope of colours, music, dance, and joy, showcasing Brazil's rich cultural heritage. From the mesmerising samba parades to the elaborate costumes adorned with feathers and sequins, the carnival is a spectacle like no other. 

But beyond the glitz and glamour, the Rio Carnival holds a deeper significance for Brazilians. It's a celebration of unity, diversity, and resilience, reflecting the country's spirit of perseverance and joy in the face of challenges.
