Growing Tea In New Jersey: One Month Later

My tea seeds have officially been in the dirt for a little over a month now. Their growth has been relatively slow but one of them has sprouted up much faster than the rest. I’ve transferred it to its own pot because I want to make sure the root has room to grow. It now has two full sized leaves and a bud. This is the kind of thing that makes me do a happy dance when I check on them every morning.

Many of friends and family have been asking how long it will before I can make tea from these plants. My answer is usually about three years. Tea plants grow at a snails pace and I don’t want to harvest at all before they are ready for it. Only time will tell if they will continue to do well indoors. I was contemplating ordering more seeds or some full sized plants but I’m not sure if there will be enough room for that.
