The example image of how the navigation works is placed below. The initial set of data has 4 packs, each pack is described with 2 parameters: tea type and country name. The search results depend on the current selection in the navigation control section. If tea type is selected, that will decrease the number of the results. For example, if user selects the “Black” tea, the results will be “Pack 1” and “Pack 2”.
