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.

What are my shipping options?

We ship our Taheebo Wellness Tea worldwide. See options below.

For addresses within the US, we have only one shipping option which is USPS Priority Shipping. We receive a small discount from USPS which we pass on to you. Orders of 3 to 5 pouches ship at a flat rate of $14.50 (prices may vary with usps increases)

What type of packaging do you use?

Everything that comes with your tea is compostable or recyclable. Our tea pouches and labels are made from 100% compostable materials and can be safely composted like any other organic waste. Our shipping pouches, boxes and labels are made from 100% recycled content. Please consider first reusing or repurposing your packaging.

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!!

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.

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!

Taheebo Wellness offers an excellent tea with a fine grind that enables the essence of the herb to saturate the tea when brewing. I usually have 2 cups/day and brew 2 days batch by bringing about 5 cups water in a glass or ceramic pot with about 4 Tablespoons of the taheebo tea to a boil, then simmer for about 30 minutes and strain. I keep the leftover in a glass mason jar. When drinking this tea regularly one really notices its powerful cleansing properties. I now recommend this tea as one of the best things to keep your detox/immune system strong (a great anti-covid prevention!) One also feels "clearer" mentally (if one is used to brain fog). Great for candida, fungal issues. I got used to it now and its a mainstay of my health routine. Tip: if you can take it without any sweetener, I think its best like this. If not, try adding some drops of NOW foods organic monk's fruit liquid (one of the few sweeteners permitted for candida or fungal issues)

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.

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!

We started drinking the tea 2 weeks ago. My varicose veins are not as noticeable. I have a general feeling of increased wellness. My husband feels it is making a difference in his overall health as well. We each drink 4 ounces morning and evening. Great product!

I've used other Pau D'arco teas, but this beats them all. I noticeably felt better after a week of drinking this tea 2-3 times a day. Will keep drinking!

I just started my tea. I am still on one cup every other day. Yes, it is strong but it's good with Splenda. I will soon increase to two cups maybe diluting it a little to suit taste but not too much. I want to get the good effects.

My prior Pao d'arco tea wasn't helping so I decided to try this Taheebo tea. It is very strong. I have had to work my way up on the dosage. Will update review after my second order experience.

My wife and I are drinking Taheebo tea every day and we love it with milk and monk fruit sweetener. Thank you so much for the wonderful tea! Lots of people don’t prefer the bark-type taste but we add a bit of sweetness to it and milk and we enjoy it very much! It’s so healthy for you so it's worth the taste!

Our current health journey had been rounded out so nicely by adding the tea to it for a daily dose of antioxidants and amazing flavor! Brewing is a snap and I feel I get the full benefits from each batch by using a longer method of steeping than I would’ve known to do otherwise. Still on our first bag but will order again!

We bought the Taheebo Tea because it is natural and had great reviews. I have diabetes, but after drinking the tea a few weeks, I noticed that the discolored area on my leg from the neuropathy had disappeared. I have an appointment in two weeks where they will get my A1C (avg blood sugar over 3 month period). I’ll keep you guys posted.

It's been about two weeks since I drank Taheebo tea. Originally, I had to sleep eight or nine hours at night and take a nap for about an hour to make my daily life possible. But the first chance I've experienced after drinking this tea is that I'm not tired enough to not have to sleep as much sleepless. I'm often tired and absent-minded, so I feel like my work is getting better. And recently, the daily temperature gap has worsened, so I coughed every morning because of a sore throat, but after drinking this tea, the symptoms disappeared a day or two. It's only been about two weeks since I drank this tea, and I'm surprised to see this change. It's more effective than taking expensive nutritional supplements. I will continue to drink. I'm 27 years old and I don't want to get sick even when I get older. I'm so happy to know Taheebo at a young age.

We have used this tea to heal skin issues, to heal wounds, and to clean the blood internally nightly taken just before bed. The new providers offer the exact same quality as Herb-Care formerly did. It is some of the best available for purchase online, very potent and very effective. We are now using it to combat stage 1 cancer in an elderly family member, with so far extremely promising results. This is three large mugs per day one at daybreak, one around noon, one just before sleep. This is coupled with a very clean 90+% plant zero fat diet. I reorder constantly to keep enough in stock for all of us. Thank you!!

Wow, taste great once I figured out the brewing method. My energy level is better. I drink twice a day as preventive for all things I don't want. I have back issues, seems to help with inflammation. Been drinking for 1 month. Will reorder. Thanks!

I’ve been drinking 1-2 cups of strong tea per day. I make it at least triple strength. I’ve had problems with candida overgrowth and likely gut bacterial community issues that probably go back to intense childhood antibiotics to stop ear infections. In addition to digestive issues (IBS), I get some strange symptoms that include facial/neck tics that I find uncomfortable and socially distressing. Ramping up the tea strength and dosage has pulled my symptoms way back and I’m now looking to find the right maintenance dose, having also cut out sugars and alcohol.

I had read about this tea, but really wanted to get a product that was good quality, and so I ordered it and just started brewing/drinking it about a week ago. I have breast cancer which sometimes can be very painful where the tumor is. I remembered reading something about Taheebo tea easing pain from cancer and broke out the bag! Honest to God, the first three times I drank this tea beginning last week it was because I wanted to see if it would help with pain I was having at the time. I was completely floored to find that it stopped my pain within a minute or so, each time! I’m going to continue to drink the tea, that told me all I needed to know about its quality. I also really love the taste, I mix it with macadamia milk and some stevia. It has also replaced coffee for me, which I know I don’t need. Thanks for putting such a great product out there, and for sharing your own story. I’m hopeful that all the things I’m doing to heal plus this tea will keep me on a good path to wellness.

Perfect 5 star product! Perfect 5 star customer service. I’ve ordered from another supplier in the past, and Taheebo Wellness Tea is good, and I think, superior to another such tea I’d ordered in the past, from another supplier. The tea is more finely and evenly sized, boils evenly, and is easy to filter. With the first batch of tea I brewed, the lift it gave was a happy reminder of why I’d ordered it to begin with. Just as in the past, joint pain and abdominal discomfort was instantly much diminished. Thanks Taheebo Tea for providing this product

I started drinking this tea a few weeks ago, the taste surprised and delighted me! I was expecting something terrible tasting and I discovered that i enjoy the taste. I had to quit drinking coffee and this reminds me of that. I've had several questions Julien and Melissa responded quickly to all of them. Very nice to work with... Thank you so much!!

We (my husband and I) have been long term consumers of pau d'arco / taheebo tea, we take it now as a preventative against any ailments, colds etc however my husband battled back from stage four cancer and we credit this amazing tea as a main factor in his recovery. The tea offered here is the exact same tea that HerbCare in Canada used to offer, premium quality and the correct cut to brew the most potent tea if someone is using it to fight a serious condition. I highly recommend trying this tea. P.s. my husband is alive and well today nineteen years after being told he had six months to live!

We got Taheebo Wellness tea from Julien and Melissa before leaving California. When we got home I kept noticing that I don't have any cravings. After I put the dots together I realized that this is exactly when we started to drink the tea. My partner also noticed feeling really calm and equanimous. It took away dips into low mood, driving wasn't stressful, gave more alert hours during the day, overall presence increased. I also noticed special attention was going towards preparing and drinking the tea, a precious gift. We tried making a tea from pao d'arco bark I found we had at home and it wasn't the same at all! Taheebo Wellness Tea has a rich taste, sweet and bitter notes, and a very pleasant and comforting aroma. Thank you to Julian and Melissa for bringing it to North America.
