Tea Bloom

 
How exciting! 
The first ever bloom on a
Camellia sinensis (tea plant) in Berea, KY.
Thanks to my gardening friend, Patty for
caring for, talking to, and loving this plant for me.
I love tea, but I'm not a gardener.

Oh how exciting to be part of history in the making in Berea pertaining to tea! The blossom on your tea plant is lovely.

That's wonderful! It does look like a Camellia, but with a different shape. How exciting!

Just lovely---the flower AND a friendship like that.

Does the flower have a scent, and does that influence the flavor of the tea?

Bravo to Patty! Can we call her "The Tea Whisperer" now? :)

Pretty blossom. It is exciting when the tea plant blooms. I must go outside and see what our cold weather has done to mine.
