For any keen tea lover, here is the opportunity to grow your own tea at home.
Tea is made from the dried, processed leaves and buds of the Camellia Sinensis bush and this tea bush is the opportunity to have the same plant that the Tregothnan estate uses to grow its own tea in Cornwall.
The tea-producing bush has dark green, thick leaves and produces delicate white blossoms. The finest tea is made from the top two leaves and bud of each of the plant’s shoots. Using other plucked leaves from the sprig will produce a stronger tasting brew.
Unlike tea bushes supplied as seedlings, this plant has been nurtured from a cutting and will happily grow in the correct conditions. It is supplied with detailed care notes and information about the journey ‘from bush to cup’.
Presented gift-wrapped in hessian with a ribbon bow, with care notes and a personalised gift card if required.
Tea bushes supplied are approx 15-25cms tall and nearly two years old. A giftcard with your personalised message if required.
