Camellia sinensis | Korean Tea
This hardy variety of tea comes from the mountains of the Boseong region in South Korea. The young leaves at the tips of the branches are the part that's harvested for green tea, and crushed then oxidized to make black tea. White tea is the most delicate of all, made from the smallest, tender leafy tips. Ideal for growing your own tea. Great for large containers or protected locations.
