I've seen the pictures in the book by Adagio Tea but couldn't be sure of the looks of the leaves.
Camelia sinensis, the tea plant, is a broadleaf evergreen. There are tons of phots of the plant on line...just google...but here is one nice very close up photo...after opening the link, click on the close up photo. Many vendors have nice photos.

Thank you for your note. Teas are usually good for about 1 year. The next
harvest of teas will be available to us, as well as to many other tea
vendors, sometime in June or July of this year. We hope this information
helps, and thank you for visiting Adagio Teas!
