I am looking for Correctol herbal tea laxative

Quite some time ago I purchased over the counter a box of Correctol Herbal tea laxative. I looked for it recently and could not find it. Is it no longer available or is there somewhere else I can purchase this kind of herbal tea?

of course we had something that worked well and now you can no longer get it. I purchased it a long time ago and still have some (lucky for me) but I want to be able to get more when I run out. Once again (and this is another one of the many times) that something goes off the market that was great) we can no longer get. Just tics me to no end.
