Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“From planting, growing, harvesting, blending and infusing various herbs for tea, Marietta Marcin makes the reader look in her garden for space for this hobby. Marcin’s instructions are easy to read and follow. It is enjoyable to read and would make a fine small gift.”

—Jerry Williams, Richmond (VA) Times-Dispatch

“Why not combine pleasure and passion with Storey’s latest edition? Herbal Tea Gardens by Marietta Marshall Marcin does just that.”

—Gainesville (FL) Sun

“A great book to get you started making your own herbal teas is The Herbal Tea Garden…included in the book is a chapter on making herbal tea blends that should intrigue any tea drinker.”

—Detroit (MI) Free Press

“The Herbal Tea Garden is a real eye-opener as well as a palate-pleaser for those adventurous enough to try herbal brews that don’t come in little white tea bags.”

Carolina Gardener

“Clearly illustrated, it delivers exactly what the title promises, with concise, easily understood language.”

—Minneapolis (MN) Star-Tribune
