India is well known for its hospitality, warm culture and its innocence. Unfortunately it has been ruled by many different foreigners and suffered for its warmth and hospitality. Similarly when the British came to India in early 1800 A.D.

The Tea plants used to grow naturally in the Upper Brahmaputra valley. Robert Bruce, an official of the British Empire, who is credited with the discovery of tea in Assam in 1823, gave publicity of the existence of the plant, the leaves of which were boiled to prepare the tea.

Further going down 30 kilometres from Dibrugarh (ASSAM) to its Eastern region today stands CHABUA. Chabua came in existence in the year 1823. Many poor Indian labours were taken by force to work in some plantation and in an unknown place.

These poor labours were un aware of the farm and the plantation they were made to work for, but these labours were also Surprised on the Britishers crazy behaviour for giving such importance to this wild plant, When these awestruck labours were asked they said “they were working for the plantation of sowing the wild plant “ which they called “CHA” –“TEA” and “BUA”---“SOW”. Hence the place got its name “CHABUA”.
