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?

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.

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 21 quarts (more than 5 gallons of tea). Our tea 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.
