When I saw the title and cover for this, I was immediately interested. I love starting my plants inside in small containers and drinking tea. I used to buy tea all the time, but oftentimes, even with the higher end, organic brands I like, so often bagged tea tastes like it should be tasting so much better. So, why not grow your own. I’ve been plotting out my indoor Fate, I tell you.
This is a really, really in-depth basics book - does that make sense? And I don’t mean it at all to sound insulting; the author has done a fantastic job of condensing her knowledge into this treasure-trove of a how-to guide and the results are this terrific guide.
As the title proclaims, this is for beginners - and I absolutely recommend it.
This would be a wonderful family project to do with age 3, 3.5 and up children - they help plant, they tend their seedlings, they watch them grow, they help harvest, and enjoy some yummy kid-palate-friendly tea.
