The Chinese Tea Tree oil, Malaleuca alternifolia, comes from plantations made with the australian seeds of authentic australian Tea Tree oil. The quality, however, is not the same. The quality of this oil is on demand and can not fix a standard and recognized Tea Tree oil, by the moment. It is true that Chinese farmers are doing well and probably in the next future both qualities, Chinese and Australian can be compared.
