Latitude 29°N Longitude 98°E

Latitude 29°N, Longitude 98°E is where the two varieties of tea plants Camellia sinensis and Camellia assamica originated (Myanmar (Burma), Southwest China, Tibet and Northeast India).

Camellia sinensis grows best in the cool high altitude climates of China and Japan and has smaller leaves than the Camellia assamica plant, which has large broad leaves and grows best in the moist tropical climates of India and Myanmar.
