The British gardener who sells tea to China

British people are famed for their love of drinking tea. Yet, until recently, the country has always relied on imports. Now several regions have started growing their own. One estate in Cornwall, England, even exports their produce to other tea-growing countries like China - the birthplace of tea. Gardener Jonathan Jones explains how a unique microclimate is helping Britain's first commercial tea plantation to thrive.
