Looking for tea cultivars

Hi, I am doing my graduate research on the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) and I am looking for cuttings of non-ornamental cultivars I don't already have. I am primarily interested in Sinensis varieties (sometimes called small-leaf tea) or hardy Ainensis-Assamica hybrids...basically only those which are hardy in zone 8b or colder.

Cultivars I have :
'Grimball Point' (Sinensis)
'Sochi' (Assamica)
'Yabukita' (Sinensis)
'De Renne' (hybrid)
'Old Savannah' (Assamica)
'Azores' (Sinensis or hybrid?) - an unnamed cultivar from the Azores

please contact me if you have plants of other varieties (but not 'Rosea') that you might be willing to part with a few (dozen?) cuttings...thanks!

Yes thank you florence, but I am already working with them...some of the varieties I have listed in my original post come from them. Know of any other sources?

Check with Camellia Forest nursery. They have quite a few sinensis selections in their latest catalog.
