Herbal Nana Min, Moroccan Mint two tea measures of each, brewed twenty minutes. I am a mint person this was a very nice tea and contrasting mint leaves a nice taste. Next I personally like spearmint so tired 1 measure of Moroccan Mint and two Nana mint. I think Nana Mint wins with me as it can help with bowel problems, but Organic Liquorice could get me addicted to it. My shop brand of tea is Typhoo milk and two sugars of demerara sugar. I would like to thank all the front line workers including the Royal Mail for this would have not been possible without them. I would also recommend the teapeople.co.uk please visit there website.
