I don’t think I have ever tried a true Lapacho. I read that I am to infuse for up to 25 minutes! WOW!!!! Is that right? LOL

Anyhow…

Smells like orange prior to infusion. As it’s infusing you can smell the vanilla too. It also has a sweet wood smell – slight – sweet

As it continues to steep it smells more and more like a creamsicle.

I’m sampling a sip here and there as it continues to steep. So far I am at about 15 minutes…it does seem to get better and better tasting the more it continues to infuse but I am very impatient. LOL

Okay…at 20-ish minutes I couldn’t wait any longer! LOL

I did noticed it gets LESS bitter and smooths out the longer it sits. It’s quite smooth at 20-some minutes and juicy and thirst quenching. I’m getting more orange than vanilla…next to no vanilla but then again it probably pulls back the orange flavor a bit and makes it more smooth…so I guess it all works out.

I must say this is different from anything I have prepared but I really like it.

Sounds good, but I have a hard time waiting for regular 2-6 minute steep times.
