The Camellia – A global sensory experience through time… - Saturday 5 March

To most of the UK’s population today, the camellia is simply a stunning, colourful winter bloom that has been a feature of European gardens for centuries.  One member of the camellia family, though less visually attractive, sits alongside sugar cane, coffee and cacao as one of the most globally successful and influential commodities of all time.  Unlike the others, the camellia plant has crossed the boundaries between art, medicine, religion, horticulture, trade and social behaviour.

 

Nadege Forde-Vidal has been investigating how and why the Camellia Senensis, better known as the tea plant, has had such an impact on our senses and culture from East to West.  Starting in China in the 1st Century BC, Nadege tells the story of the Camellia Sinensis from source to teacup across three continents…

 

Nadege’s talk will be followed by a warming cup of tea and an opportunity of shop in our Camellia pop up shop.
