Camellia sinensis – Tea Bush – Grow your Own Cuppa! on category Garden Plants
Green Tea just got fresher thanks to this plant so put the kettle on and use the leaves from this specially selected Camellia species to make the worlds freshest cup of green tree – picked direct from your own garden and brewed straight away. Said to have all sorts of health giving properties we’re thinking we could just set up our own Great British Green Tea plantation with a few of these and save some food miles to boot. If green tea isn’t your thing you could dry and process into regular brown tea – you could even try picking the leaves at slightly different growth stages to make your very own tea blends from a builders brew to perhaps something a little lighter in complexion. What ever you choose to do please be aware we won’t be supplying milk or sugar in this instance – just the plants! There’s more than just a refreshing brew with this plant however in Spring it will cover itself in masses of white flowers with a huge boss of yellow central stamens it’s as if someone has thrown little fried eggs all over the plant. It’s really worth growing for this display alone with out even speaking of the benefits of green tea – a quick scout of google will throw up all sorts of scientific reasearch that says how good green tea is apparently good for you (note as we are selling the plant we make no medical claims and can not be liable for any effects of consumption positive or otherwise) but here’s a few possible health benefits we found after a quick search online: Contains healthy bioactive compounds. … May improve brain function. … Increases fat burning. … Antioxidants may lower the risk of some cancers. … May protect the brain from aging. … May reduce bad breath. … May help prevent type 2 diabetes. … May help prevent cardiovascular disease. Boosts the immune system and protects against Coronavirus (seriously we found a research paper stating green tea polyphenols act against viruses and a study in to COVID-19 showed three specific compounds found in green tea that were recommended to be put forward and tested as a drug candidate). Supplied in approx.1-2 litre containers these bushy plants are much larger than the baby ones offered elsewhere they are well established so ready to start cropping the tastiest tips – we’ll warn PG you’re not chimping around and ready to give them a run for their money with this one!
