Tea Guy's Great Botanical Experiment

Tea Guy finally got around to locating and ordering some seeds of the variety Camellia sinensis the other day. That's tea, in case you're wondering why it sounded so naggingly familiar.

My hope is to actually grow a tea tree to the extent that I can glean enough leaves from it for at least one cup of tea. I wouldn't say that I have a particularly green thumb, but neither have my past gardening efforts been a total disaster, so we'll see how it goes. I'll be posting regular updates as I go. Stay tuned.

If you'd like to get your hands on some tea seeds and play along at home you might try the Whatcom Seed Company.

Please do give details! and pictures if you can. Are you planning to pot indoors? I'm gonna try this too. Love your blog! (I just got my first order from Adagio who I learned about per you posts and am so far delighted with their company.)

Thanks for your comments. I'll try to get pictures up as things progress. Since I'm in a rather frigid part of the world these days I'll be trying to do this indoors for now.
