my Camellia senensis developed tiny brown spots over night. they were in full sun and I moved them to partial shade after this happened. I have 2 questions.
1. what is the cause of these brown spots? (hopefully someone can identify them).
2. is the tea made from leaves with these spots safe for consumption?

Maybe a bacterial leaf spot infestation. Probably related to cool and damp conditions being present.

Note spelling is "sinensis", a reference to China.
