Grow your own tea with this bushy camellia sinensis plant
A relation of the showier camellia japonica, tea plants produce pretty white flowers in the winter months, followed by fresh spurts of leaves in the spring and summer. The young leaf tips are the most prized part of the bush and each plant comes with full instructions of how to turn these tips into a delicate green or oolong tea at home.
Great gifts for tea lovers, these tea plants are surprisingly easy so make great gifts for birthdays and to say 'thank you' too.
Every plant will come complete with care instructions and also our expert guide on how to use the leaves to make your own homegrown tea.
Available in a choice of a basket or pail and with a handwritten card to complete the gift.
If you don't pick your preferred container and card then our packing team will pick what they feel is best on the day.
This variety is the true camellia sinensis var sinensis and unlike the assamic is a hardy plant that will thrive in the UK. In fact this darjeeling type originates high up in the himalayas so can take anything the british weather can throw at it.
Further north they may need a bit more protection for the first winter but once they are established they can be planted out in the garden or kept in a large pot on a patio all year round.
