one plant

when we tell people that all tea comes from one type of plant they are usually truly surprised. all teas be they black, green, white, pu-er or oolong come from the Camellia sinensis plant. what distinguishes the tea type, variation and flavour is of course climate, geography and how it is picked, manufactured and processed.

it is a beautiful plant and we are in our process of planting many one and two year old seedlings and several three and four year olds.
click on the picture and you will see the beauty.

Great to see you at the market in Duncan today Victor! The tea plant is so beautiful! I'm looking forward to my first cup of Cowichan Valley grown Camellia sinensis!
