    Ever wondered where your tins of tea came from? The Camellia sinensis. of course! Maybe you like the novelty of growing your own tea plant and couldn't care less about a steamy cup of freshly brewed tea or maybe you want to ferment some black tea yourself for your batches of kombucha. The Camellia sinensis. is a lovely shrub with glossy green leaves and produces beautiful Oriental looking flowers. With a lot of concerns about fair trade and the quality of growing conditions, growing your very own tea can both insure that there is no slave labor involved in the flourishing of your plant and that you know exactly what is going into the soil to nourish your plant that will later nourish you. For extraordinary plant quality try a mineral rock dust available at many online retailers. The Camellia sinensis. generally does well wherever camellias grown
