      Camellia sinensis - (L.)Kuntze.- the evergreen shrub used to make tea. All tea is from this plant. Herbal teas are, in fact, not teas but are rather infusions b/c they do not use camellia sinensis. Black tea, green tea, Oolong tea- all from camellia just leaves prepared differently. First tea plantations in US were in Charleston, SC. Probably this coupled with southern heat is why iced tea is such a popular southern drink.

      Camellia sinensis is used to harvest white tea, green tea, oolong, pu-erh tea and black tea.

    "A cup of tea solves everything"... I would seriously consider getting a cute, vintage, English style tea kettle representing my love for London...However, I don't particularly like tea. The only blend that I've acquired a taste for is English Black Breakfast Tea.

    mmm...green tea...I can smell the green acridness just looking at this picture
