Did you know? The Assam plant Camellia assamica, is, in fact, a small tree, which grows to be about 10-13 meters in height. Its leaves are thin, bright, tend to have a tapering apex and contains higher caffeine level than Camellia sinensis, which is smaller, about 2-3 meters in height. In harvesting, or plucking, the shoot removed usually includes the bud and the two youngest leaves. The weight of 2,000 freshly plucked China bush shoots may be 1 pound (0.45 kg); the same number of Assam shoots may weigh 2 pounds (0.9 kg).
