This tea is better to drink before going to sleep because it will knock you out. I’ve let it go from 5 minutes to 20 minutes steeping. Supposedly, the longer the better for steeping this one. No reason to resteep this one because one cup and I’m done. It has a flavor I can’t describe yet it’s familiar too. Tons of health benefits affiliated with Lapacho make this a good sleepy time herbal tea.
