Have you ever brewed your own tea? I don’t just mean a bag of tea from the supermarket! I mean growing tea from scratch, then brewing it to enjoy! Thompson & Morgan’s Hydrangea serrata ‘Hydrantea’ allows you to do just that. In Japan this hardy shrub has been utilised for making a refreshing herbal brew for many centuries. Once harvested, the leaves are left to dry in the sun before crushing and re-drying to create flavoursome tea-leaves. With no calories and a naturally sugary flavour, it makes a delicious alternative to normal caffeinated tea.

In this edition, greenhouses and dice are made of FSC certified wood from well-managed forests, and tokens are made with plant-based plastic derived from sugarcane, a renewable raw material.
