Taheebo Tea Pau d'Arco Brewing Instructions

Taheebo Tea, or Pau d’Arco Tea, is derived from the inner bark of the Tabebuia impetiginosa or Tabebuia avellanedae tree. To extract the active chemicals within Taheebo requires the decoction method of brewing – boiling the bark for at least 15 minutes. This cannot be done with teas packed in individual tea bags.

☕ Our FINE GRIND Taheebo Wellness Tea is pure inner bark, and 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. We recommend this fine mesh filter for our Fine Grind Tea. 

☕ Our COARSE CUT TEA is a limited batch. It is exactly the same tree bark as our Fine Grind tea, and differs only in the size/shape of the bark (Coarse Cut is small shreds/sticks of Taheebo bark, while Fine Grind is finely ground bark). A fine mesh filter is not necessary for this style. 

We recommend our Coarse Cut tea for those who prefer a lighter brew. And the Fine Grind tea for those who are drinking Taheebo for chronic conditions.

If you don't like the taste of Taheebo tea on it's own, you may choose to follow some of our Taheebo recipes.

Taheebo Tea / Pau d’Arco Brewing Instructions

1. For FINE GRIND: Measure out 1 quart + 1/2 cup of spring water and add to a stainless steel or glass pot.

For COARSE CUT: Measure out 1 quart + 1 cup of spring water and add to a stainless steel or glass pot.

2. Add 3 tablespoons of either FINE GRIND or COARSE CUT Taheebo Wellness Tea to the water.

3. Bring liquid to a full boil with a lid on the pot.

4. Reduce heat and cook covered at a gentle rolling boil for 25 minutes (extend rolling boil to 30 minutes for our coarse cut bark).

5. For FIND GRIND Taheebo, we recommend using this fine mesh filter.

For COARSE CUT Taheebo, pour through a strainer into heat safe glass bottles or pitchers.

Let cool, cap and refrigerate. If you are planning to drink your Taheebo Wellness Tea within 3 days, refrigeration is optional due to its strong, natural anti-bacterial properties. When stored in the refrigerator, your tea will remain fresh for up to 8 days.

6. We like to prepare 3 quarts at a time, storing in the refrigerator for easy drinking throughout the week.
