This beautiful Tea Plant Gift has lush evergreen leaves all year and scented white blossoms every spring and comes with a tea leaf infuser and a full guide on how to make your own delicious tea.
Since ancient times the tea plant has been treasured for its fragrant leaves and it sybolises peace and serenity. All black and green tea comes from this original plant’s leaves and is much-loved for its delicious flavour. The plant grows a fresh flush of fragrant, young leaves every year and these can be plucked from early spring through to late summer.
All our tree gifts are organically nurtured and when you place your order a beautiful Tea plant will be freshly selected by devoted gardeners before being carefully wrapped in organza and placed in its luxury parcel.
Growing in an organic pot filled with top-notch compost, all that is required by the recipient is to provide natural daylight and water. Special nutrients have been added to your tree’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. These little beads of goodness will release into the soil over the next 9 months to ensure your plant continues to flourish.
Your tea plant will happily grow in its organic pot for the next few weeks, then plant (still in its organic pot so the roots are not disturbed) into an outdoor flower pot and place it in a bright, cool room or plant directly into a sunny spot in the garden. The tea plant thrives in dappled shade and can tolerate temperatures as low as -2C.
The luxury gift parcel measures 55cm high and 15cm diameter and the plant is approximately 35cm high and can reach a height of 1m in 5 years while plucking a small crop of leaves and giving it time to grow naturally.
Your parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside it and must be opened as soon as possible.

I bought this for my mom, as I thought as an avid tea drinker she would be amused with it. It was bought from the Christmas catalogue but in November. It arrived through the mail in a cardboard tube, in a plastic bag. Obviously, the tube had been quite damaged on its journey and I was not able to open the tube to check or water the plant without breaking the seal. As it was delivered so far in advance of Christmas, I changed my plans and delivered it to the recipient the next day - after a 200 mile round trip. If the gift had been delivered in a box around the tube, and with a method of watering the plant, it would have been perfect! I did speak to a lovely lady at Harrod and expressed my concerns and they were more than helpful, offering a replacement tube, a new product but I was trying to express the two things they needed to do to make this a 5 star gift, packaging it better and allowing the access to the plant without damaging the display tube.
