The tea trees were planted at the end of 20th Century. There are several Chinese tea cultivars which were imported in Soviet Union by Chinese foreman Lau Dzhen Dzhau. The village of Nagomari was one of the leading tea producing villages during the Soviet Era and at that time, the majority of villagers were employed in the tea sector. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, tea production factories across Georgia were closed, tea plantations abandoned and thousands of jobs lost. In 2015 18 villagers came together and established a tea producing cooperative and so far, they have completely rehabilitated 25 hectares of tea plantation, built a small factory and started tea processing.. In Nagomari, a large area is covered by old tea plants.
