    Someone has just asked me if it's alright to have jasmine tea (loose leaf variety) on CD. Couldn't give an answer 'cos I don't drink tea in any form.......yuk.........it's got to be coffee every time :eek:

    Thought one of you clever peeps would have the answer so I can put her out of her misery ;)

    Peppermint Tea and Pure Green Tea are both very nice and also apparently Nettle tea but not tried that myself.

    Peppermint is excellent for the digestive tract and also for indigestion so would go for that.

    Liquorice tea has been linked with hypertension so I would avoid it anyway Shantelle.
