Camellia sinensis is a hardy evergreen shrub that is probably the most widely grown Camellia in the world traditionally used for caffeinated teas.  They are harvested as the leaves emerge beginning in early spring and processed in different ways to create white, green, oolong, and black teas.



  • Assamica (Zones 7-11)

Place your tea plants in a location that will receive full to partial sun. These plants require well-drained, slightly acidic soil. Water plants frequently during the first two years – generally 2 or 3 times per week during the summer. Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. The plant is drought-tolerant once established and is more cold-hardy than other Camellia spp.
