Camellia sinensis (tea) has played an important role in the development of world trade and politics. However, compared to other woody crops such as coffee and citrus, little in vitro technology has been applied to tea. Research reported to date showed slow callus growth from tea expiants and contamination problems which reduce the number of usable aseptic cultures. The objective of this study was to establish an appropriate expiant and in vitro culture protocol for tea.
