Did you know that you can grow your own tea? Did you also know that the tea we all drink comes from the leaves of a Camellia? Not all camellias are used for making tea. Those pretty ornamental flowers are just for looks - not for tea! Only the leaves of Camellia sinensis contain all the necessary elements for making tea.
Tea is the worlds most popular beverage only after and for centuries it has been the beverage of choice for poor and nobility alike. It has brought people together and torn people apart. But it always remains near to our hearts!
Today, you see many growers selling camellia sinensis as just a generic plant. The fact is, that tea is anything but 'generic'. Tsubaki Tea™ is a collection of Camellia sinensis cultivars that have been grown for their outstanding garden performance as well as for their ability to make a good cup of tea. The collection consists of cloned cultivars as well as seedlings and each plant goes through a rigorous selection process to make sure that you are getting the best.
