tea tree

Did you know that it is easy to grow your own tea plant. ‘Camellia sinensis’ is the evergreen plant which can produce you tea leaves for 50 – 100 years. It also produces a fragrant leaf which have pretty winter flowers.

Although originating in the himalayas, you don’t need a large garden to grow this tea plant, a planter on your wall or a simple pot will work fine, however it does need to be brought indoors or put into a greenhouse in the cold weather. This tea plant can make black, green, white or oolong tea. It’s obviously not as simple as popping a tea bag into a cup but you can use a simple strainer if you just fancy green tea.

They are also a great idea as a birthday or Christmas present for any avid tea lover.
