Camelia sinensis v assamica - Tea Plant

This listing is for 10 seeds of this South East Asian native and commercially important shrub.

There are two varieties of Tea, those that produce the Chinese style teas (mainly green/white tea) and those that produce Indian style tea (the black teas). These seeds are taken from plants growing in Darjeeling, said to produce the finest Indian style 'black' tea. Although cultivated for its leaves, in particular the young shoots, it also makes a fabulous ornamental with deep green glossy leaves and scented waxy white flowers with contrasting yellow stamens. The flowers are followed by a fleshy berry containing the large seeds.

Hardy in Zones 7 to 9, it can be successfully grown in many temperate areas. It also makes an excellent pot plant for use in a conservatory or as a houseplant. If left to grow unchecked, it will develop into a small/medium tree.
