It’s been a while since my last Lapacho so I’m long overdue for a good one! I’m so happy the one I tried recently was Lapacho Orange and Vanilla Tea from Kent Sussex Tea & Coffee Co.
Lapacho, Orange Peel, Orange Slices, Vanilla Flavoring are the ingredients in this decaff offering and boy-oh-boy was it a flavorful one! It was citrusy, sweet, creamy, and even had a slight woodsy-spice towards the end of the cup as it cooled. It was reminiscent of a creamiscle with a bit of a twist.
Lapacho is one of the herbals that you infuse the longest…usually 15 to 20 minutes! It’s worth the wait!
According to Kent & Sussex…Lapacho Orange and Vanilla is a delicious new herbal tea blend of Lapacho bark orange pieces and natural vanilla flavour. Their Lapacho Tea is from South America and is the inner of the Tecoma-Lapacho tree. Lapacho is a herbal tea that has been used for over a 1,000 years by indigenous tribes to treat an array of ailments and many consider it to be a medicinal gem! This is a caffeine free tea with a mellow aroma and bright taste of orange and vanilla.
This loose leaf option may be something for those who are interested in Detox, Hydration, Refreshing, Relaxing teas and tisanes.
If you have the time to infuse – this tisane just might be the one to amuse! Try Lapacho Orange and Vanilla Tea from Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee! I found it to be lovely!
