Green Tea Plant - Grow and Make Your Own Tea

by Luca C. Ugenti

I was able to buy some Camelia Sinensis seeds, and I want to know how should I handle the leaves so that I can make some green tea. Does it need some special handle or any kind of process I should be aware in the making of the green tea? If anyone knows the process of making it please let me know. I'm referring to the process of fermentation and rolling and stuff like that, I really want to know the process.


Luca, here are some articles that you might find useful.

Personally I am pessimistic anyone other than the pros can do it, but you may well prove me wrong.

I will post your question in this month's newsletter, hopefully that will attract better answers.

More info on growing tea plant
by: Luca

Just to clarify, I'll be planting my tea plant on my own farm, it's located in Rio de Janeiro and this farm is above 650 meters high, it's a very cold place, there is fog in the highest points of the farm and is very humid, there is a river bed going through the farm and it's windy. From my readings I realized that it is the perfect place for growing tea except for the windy condition.

Do you think it would be aproppiate to grow the tea in shaded, sunny, dry soil or flooded soil?I really don't have a clue where is the best place to put it.

And i seek to know the variant type of camellia that i posess could you give any sites to help me identify it? Oh, and sorry for the bad english.:)
