Frequently Asked Questions Pau d’Arco & Taheebo Tea
This page is meant to answer your most common questions regarding Pau d’Arco /Taheebo Wellness Tea. We will be updating this page as more questions come in.
Taheebo Wellness Tea
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DRINK TAHEEBO TEA / PAU D’ARCO?
We are not able to give health-related advice. We recommend you consult with your healthcare practitioner. Here are some general guidelines we can offer for you to consider:
For overall wellness, most people drink 1 to 2 cups per day.
For support with specific conditions, some people drink up to 6 cups per day.
HOW SHOULD I STORE MY TAHEEBO TEA INNER BARK?
Keep your Taheebo Wellness Tea pouch sealed in a cool, dark place. We like to transfer our Pau d’Arco bark into a glass mason jar and store it closed in the pantry but the compostable resealable pouch it comes in is perfect as well.
HOW MUCH TEA CAN I MAKE WITH 1LB OF TAHEEBO TEA?
If you follow our brewing instructions, a 1lb pouch of Taheebo Wellness Tea will brew approximately 25 quarts (more than 6 gallons of tea). Our Pau d’Arco is prepared in a fine tea grind, not commonly found on the market today. When brewed properly, this grind brews a stronger and more potent Taheebo Tea than preparations made with the cut and sift (C/S) styles of tea. Therefore, you need to use less bark to prepare a concentrated tea.
HOW LONG CAN I STORE BREWED TAHEEBO TEA?
Taheebo Tea has strong anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties and as such does not need to be refrigerated. However, for maximum freshness, we recommend storing your Taheebo Tea in the refrigerator for up to 8 days.
WHAT TYPE OF QUALITY CONTROL DOES YOUR TAHEEBO TEA GO THROUGH?
We source our inner bark from one of the top botanical companies in Brazil, approved by the Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Health, regarding both sources of supply and industrial processing. The Brazilian Ministry of the Environment, IBAMA, also inspects and certifies authenticity of our tea. Upon arrival in the USA, the tea is inspected once again by US Customs and the FDA.
WHY IS SHIPPING SO EXPENSIVE?
Keep in mind that each pouch of Taheebo Wellness tea weights one pound.
We pay a monthly subscription to be able to offer you lower rates than the post office and we extend those discounted rates to you.

We ordered the tea bark after hearing an ad on the radio. My mom has about 2 liters and she believes the bark helped to expel mucus. I will write another review once I try it for myself.
I had what I believe to be perioral dermatitis on my face, which is extremely hard to get rid of. I also had signs of some sort of candida/parasite overgrowth. With the help of this tea, my face completely cleared up and my gut issues have improved. I have only been drinking it for a few weeks. I am looking forward to how this tea will continue to improve my health going forward. Thank you guys!!
Ordered to help stabilize my blood sugar..seems to be working..will order again.

Definitely have been drinking this tea every day. I quit drinking alcohol recently and for some reason when I crave a glass of wine and drink this I find it curbs the desire for alcohol.
Not sure if it’s just a head thing or if it really does cure my cravings, but for that reason alone I’ll keep drinking this.
The other health benefits are definitely an added bonus!
My health development doctor recommended this tea and this site specifically. He told me to drink 3-4 cups a day for my specific health issues. At first I was not prepared for the strong taste. But mixing it with some non-dairy, no sugar creamer, some sunflower lecithin or MCT oil and making it a latte did the trick for me. Now I LOVE this tea. Have fixed it for friends this way and they request it now when they visit.
This tea is excellent, probably my favorite tea. Love it. Highly recommend.
A doctor recommended I drink this tea for pain in my liver area. I've been drinking it, off and on, for a few months and have noticed a reduction in symptoms. It seems to give me more balanced energy during the day as if it is supporting my body to be well. It has soothed my throat when needed. My aunt was just diagnosed with breast cancer so I sent it to her, knowing that taheebo, also known as pau d'arco, is good for cancer pain based on information found in The Little Herb Encyclopedia by Jack Ritchason (fabulous book!) I will continue to reorder, thank you Melissa and Julian!
I started drinking the tea last week. It has a very strong, earthy taste yet pleasant. I may have to adjust my brewing method. I use just a little, little bit of Splenda to curve the taste just a smidge. I drink my coffee black, so I'm sure I will acquire the pallet for the straight stuff real soon, I drink mine cold, its really refreshing. I haven't noticed any changes in my health yet. However, I am sleeping better. Thank you so much for sharing this amazing product.
I am a healthy, happy person so I can’t say that I noticed a drastic difference in my health however, I was suffering some mild sciatica which subsided in three days after starting to drink my taheebo tea. This is a fine ground tea and the tea is tasty with an unusual flavor. I like it with mint and a little honey. Aside from all the health benefits, it is also a tasty drink.
Delicious and soothing, I love it!
This tea is great! I've been drinking it for a couple weeks now as a treatment for a benign tumor (about 4 cups per day). While I haven't seen much change with the tumor yet, I can tell my health is improving and I am detoxing quite a bit. Looking forward to ordering another bag and seeing more progress!
I prefer this brand above all others for taste, strength and effectiveness. So glad I purchased it, and the customer service is excellent!
