Wartime mint tea

Tea was rationed during the war to 2oz (50g) a week. During our 2 weeks on the wartime diet, we aren't sure the ration will last the course. As a heavy tea drinker, I have had to come up with alternatives. So I am drinking mint tea between meals.

My Algerian relatives swore by mint tea as a settler for an upset stomach . Also strongly brewed mint tea as an aid to relieve headaches. Perhaps would help if you have any caffeine withdrawl symptoms during your ration week ?
