Did you know that the black and also green tea are the dried and fermented leaves of a Camellia (Camellia sinensis)? Looking closely, one can recognise the close relation between Tea Plant and Camellia: the same entire, intensive dark-green and glossy leaves. White to creamcoloured petals group around a dense cluster of golden stamen in the flower’s center. Usually, the bloom is in late winter but depending on the situation might also change to autumn or summer. Tea Plants grow by nature very compact and are densely branched, so that regular pruning is not necessary. Even though tea plants are grown commercially in mostly tropical countries-however, usually in high regions or in the mountains- they prefer cool places with high air moisture and can be planted in a shadowy place in the garden. As pot plant, it needs a slightly acidic substrate (e.g. Rhododendron- substrate) and according fertilizer. Tea Plants should be watered with water deficient in lime.
