At Camellia Forest, we have been selling tea plants for more than 40 years, supporting growers who want to learn how to grow and make their own tea. We also produce our own home-grown, hand-harvested teas and enjoy sharing what we know and what we grow with gardeners and tea lovers.
Our Tea Gardens at Camellia Forest in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, are a resource for learning about growing and processing tea - a place for people to experience tea through hands-on workshops, tea tastings, and tours. For more information, check out our newsletters, social media and YouTube.

Did you know the Chinese word for Camellia (Cha Hua) means Tea Flower? Camellia sinensis is the plant used to make all the different types of tea - from black to green, and everything in between!
Space is limited to 10 participants; registration is required and workshops will be held with a minimum of 4.
***Note: You'll receive an email regarding expected weather, attire recommendations, and other information the week prior to the workshop. Make sure to add email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org to your contacts so we don't get filtered to spam!
