I am doubtful of how representative my first encounter with lapacho tea is. For the first thing, this Inca Tea contains so much herbs and spices but the flavour is surprisingly mild and smooth. The spices aren’t overpowering and I enjoy the tangy orange flavour in every sip. Overall, it is a very light tea, which is so different from all the spiced teas I’ve tried. Does it have anything to do with lapacho?? Or is it just Meßmer?
Inka-Tee (Inca Tea)
The unique civilization of the Incas did not only create fascinating temples, but also produced extraordinary herb mixtures. From time out of mind the Incas appreciated the lapacho bark, coming from the tabebuia tree, as a valuable plant. Refined with orange flavour and spices the Meßmer Inca tea receives its unmistakable character.
