New variety!

Brew-Tea-Ful Green Camellia

Tea is produced by harvesting the tips of the branches and then drying the leaves. Best to dry them under cover outdoors. Tips can be harvested every couple of weeks; the larger the plant gets, the bigger the volume of tea that can be harvested. Dry leaves are chopped or crushed, and then steeped to make tea. Freshly made tea is much more flavorful than tea that has been packaged and stored over time.
