Following studies and trials, artichoke extract was found to be able to relieve the symptoms of dyspepsia, the scientific term for indigestion or stomach upset, which led the company to believe it could appeal to diners looking for an alternative to tea or coffee after a meal.
"Around 22 per cent of the population in the UK are thought to suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other similar conditions, which can turn eating out from a pleasurable treat to a real pain in the belly," said a spokesperson for Natur Boutique.
"Due to its hugely beneficial benefits on digestion, artichoke tea makes a great after dinner drink, whether at home or in a restaurant."
Artichoke, more often used as an ingredient in dishes, is also known to have other health benefits with studies showing it can help maintain a healthy liver and reduce cholesterol.
The tea, which is available in boxes of 20 teabags, has a mellow flavour with a hint of aniseed.
