Lapacho Tea Pau d’Arco Taheebo Massive Health Giving Properties Our Most Popular Tisane Especially In Italy And Europe


  • Lapacho or Taheebo Tea is made from the inner bark of the Pau d’arco tree, the Purple or Red Lapacho tree (depending on the colour of its flowers), a South American native evergreen tree originally found high in the Andes.
  • Lapacho has been used by several indigenous tribes for a number of ailments including infection, fever and stomach complaints.
  • This herbal tea was the main medicine used by the Inca civilisation and has been used by the Callawaya tribe for over 1,000 years.
  • The Lapacho trees in some areas are very old, some reportedly over 700 years. Only the inner bark, the cambium layer, is used and after harvest the cortex of the Lapacho tree recovers very quickly and the tree does not suffer any permanent damage so is fully sustainable.

  • Women who are pregnant should only use it externally and not drink it, one can soak clean cloths and make compresses with Lapacho.

  • Lapacho as a Tisane should be infused for at least five minutes at a temperature of 100°C, this is a guideline for preparation of all Herbal Teas so feel free to adjust to suit your personal taste.
