Camellia Sinensis is the scientific name of the true tea plant. It is the parent plant of green, black and white tea. The plant is a green shrub that grows between 1 and 5 metres high. White yellow flowers bloom on it between October and February. The cultivation of the tea plant is preferably possible in the high altitudes of the tropics as well as in the subtropics. The different treatment of the Camellia Sinensis harvest material determines whether the plant becomes green or black tea, for example.
