The Tea plant grows a fresh flush of fragrant, young leaves every year and these may be plucked from early spring until late summer. You can make your own tea by following our simple Tea Guide here.
Caring for your tree
This Tea plant is growing in an organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just add natural daylight and water. We have added special nutrients to your tree’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. These little beads of goodness will release into the soil for the next 9 months to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
Your tea plant will happily grow in its organic pot for the next few weeks. Then plant your tree (still in its organic pot so the roots are not disturbed) in an outdoor flower pot and place it in a bright, cool room or sunny spot in the garden. The tea plant thrives in dappled shade and can tolerate temperatures as low as -2C.
The luxury parcel is 55cm high and 15cm diameter. This Tea plant is approximately 35cm high and it may reach a height of 1m in 5 years, while plucking a small crop of leaves and giving it time to grow naturally.
Your parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside it and must be opened as soon as possible.
