I made this "Teensy Tea Garden" kit as a gift to a friend using leftover seeds from my garden. The box contains five varieties of seeds, each enclosed in a small sewn envelope. A teensy hand-bound book details how to care for each plant with sowing, care, and harvesting instructions, as well as directions on how to dry the leaves and steep the teas.
I found an adorable tiny teapot at a local vintage shop, so I made a simple gift box to package everything together. I also tied a ribbon around a stack of five medium terra-cotta parts and stuck the box in the top (these plants do wonderfully in containers).
This makes a unique and fun gift for kid who enjoy tea parties, adults who love gardening, and anyone who likes drinking tea!
