Camellia Sinensis the Tea Plant



I recently purchased two Camellia Sinensis plants (Tea Plants) from Amazon.com.
These plants came from Larry's Orchids.

What an impression they made on Saturday at the tea program at our local library!
I am presenting another program tomorrow at another library.

Our weather here in southeastern Kentucky is too harsh in the winter to plant these outside.
Hopefully, they will survive inside this winter.

A little tea eduction:
TEA is produced from the Camellia Sinensis,
an evergreen plant
discovered in China nearly 5000 years ago
grown in tropical and sub-tropical climates.
There are thousands of different varieties of teas made from the Camellia Sinensis.
The most common types of teas are
Black, Oolong, Green, and White.
The Camellia Sinensis is currently grown in thousands of plantations in 80 countries around the world.

Come to my tea program at the county library tomorrow morning to learn more! :-)
