Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?

The Bhutanese had a strong tea drinking culture formulated from forest resources even in remote places, however currently the trend of those cultures are waning away due to availability of commercial imported tea. The traditional tea is said to have positive impact on general well being of human body and stability of blood pressure and other important health vital signs. The BES will strive to bring this culture engaging rural/ remote people.
