The Brew-Tea-Ful Plant has lush foliage that ensures a good cup of tea is always at the ready. Also known as Camelia sinensis, this plant has woody, upright stems. New leaves are light green and transition to dark, glossy green. The lance-shaped foliage has finely serrated edges, adding texture to a landscape. White flowers bloom in the fall and attract pollinators. Leaf buds make white tea, while new spring leaves are used to make green tea. Large leaves make excellent oolong or black tea. The leaves can be harvested for tea anytime, depending on the time of year and the desired tea.

Brew-Tea-Ful Plant Care  

Full sun is ideal and helps the Brew-Tea-Ful Plant thrive, but intense afternoon sun can damage the leaves and should be avoided. Plant the Brew-Tea-Ful Plant in sandy, rich, loamy, moist, well-drained soil with an acidic to neutral pH. This plant has shallow roots and benefits from a layer of mulch to retain moisture and protect the roots from intense temperatures. Space plants 12 inches apart. Select a planting area away from strong or gusty winds.

Growing Brew-Tea-Ful Plant 

This slow-growing plant reaches 10 to 15 inches tall and 10 to 12 inches wide. Plant it outdoors in the spring after there is no longer a risk of frost. The Brew-Tea-Ful Plant grows in zones 7 through 11 as an evergreen. Potted plants can be moved to a protected area during the winter in colder areas. 

The Brew-Tea-Ful Plant is an excellent container plant. Grow this leafy beauty in a container at least 12 inches wide with drainage. Place the pot in a sunny spot and water when the soil is dry.

Watering Brew-Tea-Ful Plant 

The Brew-Tea-Ful Plant has average water needs and prefers evenly moist soil. Avoid extremely wet or dry conditions. A layer of organic mulch will reduce evaporation and keep the soil damp.

Feeding Brew-Tea-Ful Plant 

Routine feedings give the plant the nutrients it needs to thrive and push out new growth. Apply a balanced fertilizer in mid-spring and early summer.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
