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.
