Botanical Illustration Card | Tea Plant
Inspired by Victorian botanical illustrations and vintage apothecary style this beautiful Tea Plant / Camellia Sinensis drawing is one of a set of eight greeting card designs. It is printed on a crisp white background and comes with a craft envelope.
Camellia Sinensis is a species of evergreen shrub or small tree whose leaves and leaf buds are used to produce tea. The name Camellia was chosen by Carl Linnaeus in 1753 from the Latinised name of Rev. Georg Kamel (1661–1706) to honour his contributions to botany (although Kamel did not discover or name any Camellia) and the name sinensis means "from China" in Latin. The flowers are yellow-white. Tea plants will grow into a tree if left undisturbed. Tea leaves are are used as food plants by the caterpillars of a number of butterflies and moths and some herbivores.
