Wanted: Ginger Tea. Does anyone know where I can buy either Ginger Tea Bags (without the Orange or Lemon as I suffer from acid reflux!) or where I can buy the loose ginger in Torrox/Nerja? I stumbled on drinking Ginger Tea for my arthritis and back pain problems and have found it invaluable as a natural anti inflammable and have been able to give up taking painkiller drugs for the most part. I was buying them at Aldi but as with most things Aldi or Lidl, unless a regular line they run out and don’t get anymore in. I can’t seem to find them anywhere else, can anyone help me ?  Email me at: the whites 1950 at live dot co dot uk (remove spaces etc.). Many thanks Janet White
