Homegrown tea cooperates with indoor or outdoor gardening
Balconies, courtyards, terraces, and windowsills are as user-friendly as gardens for cultivating and harvesting tea and tisane-producing plants. They in fact bring gardeners conveniently close to the kitchens and pantries where the blending of a planting will take place for making:
• homegrown teas from the tea plants Camellia sinensis var assamica (Assamese camellia) and Camellia sinensis var sinensis (Chinese camellia); and
• homemade tisanes from simmered decoctions of roots and steeped infusions of flowers, fruits, leaves, and seeds.
Tea and tisane-producing plants indeed can be grown in the ground, inside raised beds, or within containers wherever ambient conditions satisfy drainage, light, moisture, soil, and temperature requirements.
