green tea plants?

Post  green tea 101 on 2/24/2012, 10:51 am

I would love to grow them, but can't find them. Has anyone in our region had luck with them?

Where did you find them?

I did a search and found this http://1greengeneration.elementsintime.com/?p=1053

It does not sound like tea would work in a SFG because it is a very large plant and takes several years to get a first harvest.

green tea....I think growing your own is a good idea. I can't have a hedge, but I sure love my tea. I drink several cups a day. I wish you luck in your hunt for plants.

It might be a drive for you, but we found green tea plants at Upland Nursery in Orange.

What a great idea! Aren't green tea and black tea the same plant but with further processing? The other thing I want is a bay laurel. Although I only use a few bay leaves a year it has always appealed to me to go out in the back yard to get them. But tea? Wow!

Yup - same plant! With green tea, you just let them bake in the sun a bit. For black, you have to ferment them.

It's not that close to you down in So Cal, but I bought my tea plants from Raintree Nursery up in Washington. http://www.raintreenursery.com/. They do ship down your way though.
