Tea from our Tea Tree

The Magician can make anything grow.

Aunt Monica gave us a tea tree.  It was, as she put it, "sulking" in an east-facing window, as her house is sadly lacking in the south-facing window department.   The Magician found a spot for it in the kitchen and now it is producing:

He plucks the leaves, dries them, and makes tea.  One plant isn't enough to supply all his tea-drinking needs.  (He's into TAi Chi right now. That seems to require lots of tea.)  But it helps!

  1. I'm so glad it is working for you and the Magician is enjoying it. I hope it blooms for him this Spring. I've gotten one sad little bloom from it, but the white flowers should make great white tea. -Auntie M
