Tea Camellia – Grow Your Own Tea!

Ever thought about making your own green, white or black tea? Well you can with the leaves from this camellia plant. The tea camellia plant thrives in the hot humidity of the southeast. Elsewhere in the states they make great container plants. It is the new flushes of growth that are harvested for tea. The tender tips are pinched out and used green or fermented and dried to produce the many types of tea like oolong, black , Darjeeling that people drink throughout the world. It is often the climate, water and nutrient that the tea plant receives that determines the flavor of the tea produced. Your harvested and home processed tea will be like no other tea in the world! Infusing it with other home grown herbs, flowers and spices will further create a flavor that you can call your own. Our tea camellia plants are decedents of plants from an experimental tea plantation in Fairhope Alabama. These plants produce large tender leaves and beautiful single white blooms. The tea made from this variety is of excellent quality. Zones 7-9BÂ
