Grow Your Own Tea At Home!

Freshly made tea tastes far superior to any tea you'll find in a market. If you enjoy the soothing comfort of a warm cup of tea, why not grow your own to relish every day? The Cold Hardy Tea Plant is one of the hardiest of all the Camellia sinensis, with smaller, narrower leaves especially preferred for making green, white, and black teas. Your tree has been groomed and will ship ready for you to start making your own tea right away.

These make attractive hedges. If you are growing for several people, a hedge is a great way to grow your plants. They do well in containers too, so if you live in colder areas, just bring the plants indoors for a few months. In fall and winter, you'll have the added bonus of small white flowers that will perfume the area with their delicious fragrance!

Even better is the fact that the Cold Hardy resists tough conditions with ease. A few plants will supply you with a lifetime of delicious tea, fresh and as pure as possible! It will grow to a very large shrub if left on its own. To use it for tea production, which uses only the new growth at stem tips, you will want to keep it pruned to about 3 or 4 feet to make it easy to harvest and to keep it producing fresh new stems.

And it's long-living. Enjoy a lifetime supply of delicious, fresh tea leaves and save thousands of dollars! One tea plant can produce for over 100 years. Just snip off the leaves and dry. Use them fresh or store them. One thing is certain - you'll have this plant for a very long time.

Order now - grow your own hardy Cold Hardy Tea plants and start enjoying truly superior tea!

    Can’t wait to brew some tea

    Tea plants arrived in good condition and are temporarily in large containers until transplant and are already producing new leaves. The plants should thrive once they are established in ground!

    Great customer service

    Unfortunately, the first tea plant I purchased perished. The company was quick to reach out and send a replacement, which arrived healthy and in great condition. I look forward to continuing to order from here!
