Interesting herbal tea.

I came across this herb under its Latin name on a supplement from Spain and am pleased to be able to find a supplier of the actual herb in UK.

Very Informative and Interesting Product

Everything arrived on time and in an informative manner and presentation.

Lovely tea

Nice change if you like any type of green tea. Good fresh, rounded, bright flavour with a slight aniseed/ fennel taste in my opinion which adds another dimension.
