We could all grow our tea! it is in the same family as the camellia plant which is such a common garden tree all around Aotearoa. My friend Andi is growing this one and other permaculture plants for the Hawea Food Forest project. Does anyone know how to ferment it though? For it to be black tea it needs to be fermented. We would love to know a low tech small scale technique for home- please let us know if you know about this.
