Is your healthy cup of tea loaded with Pesticides? The studies on this are frightening.

It's reported that pesticides, long been banned in the US and EU, are commonly being used by overseas tea growers. 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.

Ironically, 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.

If you live in zone 8 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-drained 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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Tea Plant (Camellia Sinensis)


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Tea Plant (Camellia Sinensis).

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Tea Plant (Camellia Sinensis) 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.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

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 Tea Plant (Camellia Sinensis) 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.
