Surface tension is the force per unit length of the line of contact (at the boundary) between a liquid and a solid surface.  For example, when water is put in a narrow test tube, the surface of water touches the glass at the boundary of its surface.  At this boundary, there is a force upwards acting on the surface of water.  This is due to adhesive forces of glass on water molecules.
