A Pot of Tea

Just as it takes hot water to bring tea leaves to life, this self-hydrating system by Sarah Burrows and Nick Behr starts the process from the ground up. The idea for this system grew from the makers' struggle to sustain a kitchen garden in their fourth-floor Chicago apartment. The busy professionals turned to hydroponics for help and were astounded by the results. Designed for space-conscious urbanites, home cooks, and aspiring indoor farmers, each of their kits is outfitted with reusable glass canning jars. The jars are threaded with wicks that pull water into the transplantable coco husk pots, keeping your teas-to-be hydrated. Once your organic mint, bee balm, and lemon basil seeds have sprouted, transfer the seedlings along with their biodegradable pots outside to thrive in your garden. Snip the herbs and mix with your favorite teas for a delightful boost of fresh flavor. Assembled in Illinois.

Prior to launching their company, co-owners and married couple, Sarah and Nick struggled to sustain a kitchen garden in their fourth floor Chicago apartment. Despite both honing their gardening skills as children, as busy adults they struggled to grow anything with their full hands. Container gardening is incredibly challenging, as plants are either water-deprived or overwatered (or both), and overtime the soil compacts, cutting off oxygen to the roots. The busy professionals turned to hydroponics for help and were astounded by the results but unimpressed with the quality of the products available on the market. With that the seed for Modern Sprout was planted.

Good design is one of Sarah and Nick's key principals. The brand's understated, sophisticated products bring all the elements of hydroponic growing to their customer's home, and look good doing it. All product lines are designed for style savvy and space-conscious city dwellers, organic-focused home cooks and aspiring indoor gardeners. Their simple, stylish and sustainable planters are self-watering, self-feeding and grow a variety of edibles, flowers and houseplants.
