my husband took lax tea in the am and pm last cleanse. he said that although he didn't feel as cleaned out as he does on the SWF (Salt-Water-Flush) he said it worked fine. the longer he let the tea steep the better it worked. i have not used the chocolate lax tea so i can't answer on that but i have read about it on this forum. maybe ask pepe as he is amazing. he really knows his stuff.
