Did you know that Pau D’Arco is actually Lapacho? I didn’t until I tried this and looked up Pau D’Arco. I don’t know that this is something I’ll ever need to know, but, I know it, and it is now taking up space in my brain that maybe … could be used for something more interesting. Oh well.

This is not my favorite functional tea that I’ve ever tasted. It is very herbaceous. I taste mostly hibiscus, and I’m not particularly fond of hibiscus. I don’t mind Lapacho so much, but it’s not something I like enough that I buy it and keep it as a staple in my tea cupboard.

The taste is medicinal, and I don’t really enjoy drinking medicine, so perhaps it goes without saying that this wasn’t the most enjoyable drink I’ve had in a long time. But, if it helps me with my immune system, OK. It wasn’t horrible … and it’s better iced than it is hot.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
