Only Natural Products, the company behind Dr Stuart's, is expanding its herbal tea portfolio with a new range of stronger-­flavoured blends.

The organic Higher Living range, available now, consists of eight herbal infusions.

The flavours range from spicy blends such as Cinnamon & Ginger Kick to a Cool Mint brew (rsp: £1.99/15 bags).

The stronger taste had been achieved by using quality organic ingredients, said Keith Garden, managing director of the Sussex-based tea producer, which has just struck a deal to sell tea to China.
