Camellia japonica. This common landscape shrub produces edible flowers all winter. I added the petals to stir fry for antioxidants. Petals can also be dried and added to tea or an oil infusion. Lots of benefits for skin and health. The new tender leaves of camellia can be harvested for black, green, or oolong tea come spring.

Usually tea is made with camellia sinensis, but japonica makes a fine tea too. It may not contain the same level of caffeine as sinensis.

Always research and identify accurately before using any plant.

God even made fresh food available to us in winter. He thought of it all. There’s no end to His mercies and love!
