The Small Leaf Tea Camellia is the source of our favorite beverage Iced Tea. It is a half hardy shrub that can be grown outside with protection in zone 6. If brought indoors during winter it can be grown much farther north.
Tea Camellias of course produce leaves that when dried can be used to make tea but they also bloom in fall every year and the small single flowers produce a nectar and pollen source for honeybees and other pollinators.
This is a unique edible plant that is steeped in history.
