The Tea tree is a subtropical species belonging to the shrub tree family. Main areas of growth are scattered broadly from tropical regions to temperate regions. The ideal temperature range and annual rainfall for tea are 12.5~12oC and over 1300mm. Tea can strongly resist mildly acidic soil, and the leaves are harvested 2~4 times a year. The soil for tea cultivation must have many nutrients including nitrogen. Most of the tea cultivated in Korea is Var. Bohea.
