The tea plant was originally planted around the Samdrupcholing palace during the reign of the second king of Bhutan which was used to produce local tea leaves. However, its cultivation was neglected until 2009, it was reviewed and planted for green tea production and has been the greatest gift to the community of samdrupchoing from the second kin.
