Camellia oleifera, a woody shrub and member of the “tea family” of plants,
has been widely cultivated in China for its edible oil and is popular throughout Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
Bangkok Tea’s Camellia Oleifera Seed Oil is a sweetish seasoning and cooking oil, light yellow in color. Rich in essential fatty acids and containing up to 85% oleic acid, it shares all the well-known health benefits of Olive Oil.
Our “Olive Oil of the East”, as it is sometimes known, is loaded with antioxidants and is also not as likely as other dressings to lead to weight gain, making it the perfect natural and healthy accompaniment for salads.
