Grow your own tea leaves! 🤩 A little known fact is that most teas are made from the leaves of Camellia sinensis. It is a species of the common Camellia genus, but generally its cousins sasanqua and japonica are more widely found in our gardens. Sinensis forms the basis of a huge tea industry in China, India and other countries. If you’re growing one, they are best harvested after about 3 years old. Pluck just the fresh leaves from the top of the plant, taking care to include a small portion of the stem containing two to five leaves and the tip.
