Default Could this be a tea plant?

Im going to guess yes. Ive seen pictures of the bush. This reminds
me of two leaves and a bud. I was expecting more seedling and stalk
than stem and leaf. Ive only seen the serrated edges on the tea
leaf. Does the leaf look like bud when emerging ie narrow, long and
twisted. There will be a flower eventually for more seeds. Nigel
would know if he is still around.

once threw tea seeds that i bought very cheaply from (i think) Vietnam
(via ebay).
