MONDAY MORNING TEA QUOTE




The tea plant's official name is Camellia sinensis.  It is a tropical evergreen with shiny, dark green leaves. (from 365 Things Every Tea Lover Should Know)

Hi Bernideen
The teapot with the birds and the one on top is adorable.

Oh yes --- so true. I'd never thought of it as a tropical evergreen before though --- but yes it is!

Hi Bernideen,
once I had a tea plant in my garden. Looked quite similar like Camellia but with tiny white blossoms. Alas it died because a funghi desease.
Hard to believe that tea is made from those strong leaves. Thank you for this interesting tea quote.
Greetings, Johanna
