New blog posting about Camellias

ericalbowmanJanuary 25, 2013

I recently wrote this about my awakening to the tea plant, Camellia sinensis and want to share.

Please let me know what you think.

Here's the introduction.

"Est-ce tu veux une infusion?" * My French host mother asked me after dinner one night. (I was an exchange student at the time, in Aix-en-Provence, in 1994.)
Translated this means, "Do you want an infusion?" I assumed she meant tea, with a little of the typical French affectation.** "Du th�?" I asked with a raised and slightly amused eyebrow, thinking I had outwitted her.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'm fairly sure your picture is not a tea plant.
