Is your healthy cup of tea loaded with Pesticides? The studies on this are frightening.
It's reported that pesticides that have been banned in the US and EU, are commonly being used by tea-growers overseas. Since most tea leaves are not washed, pesticides and other toxins go directly into your cup. Plus many of the brands we think are healthiest, could be the worst offenders.
Tea is one of the Easiest plants you will ever grow. Outside of large commercial plantations... they are seldom bothered by insects or other problems. So you can grow them organically without the need for harmful chemicals. You can even grow them indoors if you live in a cold climate!
If you live in zone 6 or higher, plant several outside your home. They make attractive flowering shrubs. If you live in the north... you can easily bring your tea plants inside for the winter. Put them near a window for an attractive house plant. You will love the fragrant flowers.
Tea plants like full sun to partial shade. They prefer a well-draining soil, rich with organic matter.
Save thousands of dollars! A few plants will pay for themselves in as little as one month! After that it's Free Tea for you, your kids, your grand kids and their kids lives... because tea plants will produce for over 100 years.
Just snip off the leaves and dry. Use them fresh or store them. Some people like to grow extra to give away as healthy gifts.
Go ahead and order your tea plants now, while this year's crop is still available. You will start saving money; stop ingesting chemicals and enjoy a better tasting, healthier tea.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cold Hardy Tea Plant.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Cold Hardy Tea Plant gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Cold Hardy Tea Plant again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
