- Tea plants
There are many different types of camellias, called species. Most popular are Camellia japonica, Camellia sasanqua, and camellia hybrids. But there is one special camellia species called Camellia sinensis. This is the only Camellia that is used for the worlds second most popular beverage - TEA as it is the only camellia species that contains caffeine. The pretty ornamental flowering camellias you see on Camelliashop are just for looks - not for tea as they do not contain this special ingredient!!! Camellia sinensis does flower, but usually small and not as significant in comparison to ornamental flowering camellias.
Because of the vast differences between Ornamental Flowering Camellias and Camellia sinensis Tea Plants, we have moved our Tea Plants to their own website!
We do not sell Camellia sinensis Tea Plants on CamelliaShop.com at this time. You can visit our brand new site at www.teaplantstogo.com for all of your Camellia sinensis Tea Plant needs!
