After all, you know what they say, "You are what you eat." What's normally the 'granny's' cure for things go wrong with the tummy? Some good old-fashioned cup of tea.

Group CEO of R and D Commercial Holdings Limited, Richard Kildare explained that the teas have been on the market for close to six years but officially launched four years ago. "The wellness teas have been doing well so far.

Apart from the helpful herbs infused within the mix, every set of tea bags has added vitamins and minerals," he told Food.

"Each set of teas has a core component and is developed based on extensive scientific research from our labs. Analysis is then executed to identify the vitamin properties. Then, mainly for the younger demographic, we add another flavour to amp up the taste profile. Hence, the creation of moringa and cinnamon," Kildare pointed out.
