The Tea Sapling is a seed that takes 20 days to grow into a Tea Bush, after which it produces one Tea Leaves item each day of the final week (days 22-28) of Spring, Summer, and Fall (and Winter if indoors). Tea Saplings do not need to be watered in order to grow.

The Tea Sapling can be purchased from the Traveling Cart, though not often. Otherwise, it must be crafted. The crafting recipe is received via mail the day after Caroline's 2-Heart event.

Villager Reactions


  • Crafting and selling a Tea Sapling is more profitable than selling its ingredients. The exact profit depends on the source of the Wild Seeds but is typically between Gold.png300g and Gold.png400g.
  • Tea Saplings can also be used as a substitute for fences, as the saplings are impassable and never wear out.
