I found an interesting source of cultivars of Camelias up to zone 6 which produces fermented black teas and green teas. For those who have seen the recent research of cellular mitochondria and the importance of antioxidants in reducing cellular degeneration (aging), I thought you may be interested in entertaining the idea of cultivating your own tea.
I just found out about camellias yesterday.
