(aka Camellia sinensis)
I am native to the southern parts of China, Japan and Korea.
I am an evergreen shrub, with glossy serrated leaves.
I can grow to 4M high.
I like moist, acidic soil, in sun or ideally part shade. I like good circulation of air around my leaves.
I produce small, white, scented flowers in Autumn.
My leaves have a tendency to develop brow edges over winter, this will not affect the new growth.
I am a slow growing and long living plant.
I like to be kept moist, with good circulation.
Tea is grown throughout the world and each region's teas have distinct flavour profiles. This is known as terroir.
