Traditional Medicinals Pau d'Arco, 16 Tea Bags
Gorgeous, strong and enigmatic.
Used historically by the indigenous peoples of South America and modern day herbalists.
Reason to Love
We love this amazingly beautiful, flowering tree, also known as “Pink Ipe” or “Pink Lapacho,” due to its stunning pinkish, purple trumpet-like flower. Traditional healers have been using the inner bark for hundreds of years. Only more recently has this cherished herb made its way into the herbal traditions of the West.
Earthy taste—woody, tannic and slightly bitter.
Some of our favorite yellow Pau d’Arco, commonly known as amarelo, comes from Bello Horizonte, a small village deep in the Peruvian Amazon. It’s harvested in the late winter through the early spring before the seasonal rains make the jungle nearly impassable. The men cut and transport the bark back to the village where the women clean and dry it to be processed.
Pau d’Arco wild sourcing is done with great care, providing the community with much needed employment and income. The health of the forest is maintained through limited and selective collection and intensive replanting.
