I would like to grow my own home grown, home brewed tea. Anyone know this is possible in a greenhouse?!?

I think I saw a news item farily recently about tea growing (out of doors) in the West  Country - Devon maybe.

Found this for you SG:

"British-grown tea is now competing with traditional Indian and Chinese varieties at Fortnum & Mason in Piccadilly. Tregothnan tea from Cornwall, costing up to £30 a packet, has been cultivated by the head gardener, Jonathon Jones, and his landlord, Evelyn Boscawen, son of Lord Falmouth.

Previous attempts at cultivating tea plants in Britain have failed because of ground frost in the winter and a lack of strong summer sun."
