I started growing my own Camellia Sinensis a couple years ago. Only another year or so before I can start harvesting the leaves and making my own tea! :D

You like herbal teas then? Because I'm pretty sure white, black, green, oolong are all made from the leaves of camellia sinensis? :p

I don't think I've taken any yet. Do you know anything about making tea from fresh-harvested leaves? I have no idea what I'm doing in that regard.

not saying it tastes bad, but normally i'm down with peppermint.
overall i like all the basic ones, nothing too fancy :p

currently i like black tea+vanilla (in the darker/winter months.)
in summer nothing is better than peppermint though.
edit: add lemongrass.

Huge fan of peppermint + lemongrass tea.

I always would buy my lemongrass, but finally found a local nursery that sells plants this past year. Can't wait to harvest next year. Have you tried chocolate mint? I made a tea with chocolate mint, lemongrass, and a dash of lavender that was just exquisite.

Camillia tea is weird, mad purely with camillia it tastes pretty bad (to me), but mix it with stuff like sage & lime-blossoms (not sure about the translation), and it's amazing.

Aren't all black teas, white teas, green teas made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant? For some reason I thought they were... I'm confused now. :lol:
