For this gift set we've teamed our popular camellis sinensis tea plants with Cassie Liversidge's fantastic book on Homegrown Tea. Follow her easy step by step guide to harvesting drying and brewing your own homegrown tea.
Current Description
Tea plants are surprisingly hardy and will do well in pots or in the ground even during our cold UK winters. Complete with a book on homegrown tea, this set is a fantastic way to introduce someone to the joys of growing tea at home. We are expecting a fresh batch of British Grown Assam tea plants soon and we'll update these pictures as soon as we can.

Swift delivery of a plant in excellent condition. My sister was delighted with her gift and I was pleased to be able to send her something so easily. I thought it was expensive when I bought it, but when you think of the quality of the product and all the extras you get with it, it works out as very good value.

Care Instrictions

These instructions are sent with the plant gift

Tea plants are members of the Camellia family and are really outdoor plants, but when they are young they make decorative pot plants in a cool room. Tea plants are quite slow growing, but eventually they can reach heights of 2 metres

While the plant is indoors, keep it as cool as you can and make sure there is plenty of natural light but not direct sunlight. An East or West facing window is ideal. Outdoors your plants will do well in pots on a sheltered patio or in a partially shaded spot. Tea plants are hardy but whilst young they should be protected from severe frosts particularly when in a pot.

Keep your Camellia Sinensis well watered, the compost should feel wet to touch at all times. As your plant grows it can be repotted in a larger pot or even in the ground. All Camellia's like acid soil, so choose compost suitable for rhododendrons and heathers and other acid-loving plants.

Tea plants produce small fragrant flowers in winter and dark glossy leaves year round.To develop a more bushy shape you may wish to pinch out the top few leaves every now and then.

Once you have a sizable bush the leaves can be harvested fresh to make green tea or dried to make traditional brown tea.

Tea for Two

Scientific Name:Camelia Sinensis

A member of the Camelia family the Tea Plant surprisingly enough is named after the drink that it's leaves make. 'Sinensi' is latin for 'Chinese' and Chinese tea plants are used to produce some of the most popular teas.

Neat dark green foliage and tiny white flowers in early summer

Tea Plants are quite slow growing but they can grow up to 3m high and produce heavy crops of the savoury leaves they are famous for. They are hardy and although they need some protection when young can be grown outside in the UK.

Tea has been drunk in China as a medicine since 2500BC and was introduced to Japan from there and finally to Europe in the 17th Century where Britain began it's love affair with Afternoon Tea. Normally the buds and the top 2 or 3 youngest leaves are harvested for tea making.
