Brewing instructions


Lapacho Tea is a South American Herbal Tea. It has become increasingly popular in recent years following new discoveries around its health benefits.

What’s more, and perhaps more importantly, it tastes great. We pack it fresh to order here at our Pluckley-based factory, situated in the stunning vistas of the Kentish countryside. This is our way of guaranteeing not only quality but also consistency.

What is Lapacho Tea?

Lapacho (also known as “Taheebo”) comes from deep in the Amazon Rainforest. Unlike other infusions - most of which are made from leaves or flowers - it is the product of tree bark.

Specifically, the inner bark of the pau d’arco tree (Handroanthus impetiginosus), which belongs to the Bignoniaceae family, is where we get this Herbal Tea. But what, exactly, does it taste like?

Lapacho Tea Taste

The indigenous communities of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, particularly the Tupi, Guarani, Kallawaya, Quechua and Aymara people, have long consumed Lapacho Tea.

When brewed, it tends to have woody and nutty notes with subtle hints of vanilla. The primary reason why most choose it, however, is the fact it comes with Lapacho Tea Benefits.

Is Lapacho Tea Caffeine Free?

South America is the home of a rare example of caffeinated Herbal Tea - Yerba Mate Tea. Lapacho Tea, on the other hand, is 100% caffeine-free, making it an excellent choice for those looking to cut down their intake.

If you’re hoping for an extra energy boost, in other words, you will do well to pick so-called “real” Tea or, indeed, Yerba Mate. Otherwise, you’ve decided exceptionally well here.

How to Make Lapacho Tea

1, Put 10 grams per litre of Lapacho Tea into a saucepan of water.

Bring it to boil.

2, Allow the Tea to simmer for five minutes.

3, Remove it from the heat.

4, Consider letting it infuse further before serving.

How to Serve: Best served without additions.

Lapacho Herbal Tea Benefits

According to new research, the antimicrobial properties in Lapacho Tea might afford protection against the common cold and influenza (flu). It’s also believed that its antifungal properties inhibit the processes that bacteria and fungi need to produce oxygen and energy.

Additionally, some preliminary studies show that Lapacho can protect against the growth of infectious bacteria in the digestive system.

That’s not all on offer here. One animal-based research project recognised that it inhibits pancreatic lipase. This is an enzyme that helps your body to digest and absorb dietary fat.

By blocking this enzyme, Lapacho Tea Benefits essentially has the opposite effect: it reduces fat digestion, resulting in fewer absorbable calories. In other words, it promotes weight loss.

  7. Этот напиток имеет необычный вкус, но это скорее всего оттого, что пробуешь его первый раз и не каждому он понравится. Со временем может полюбиться. Если сравнивать с Lapacho Orange and Vanil tea, то последний будет нежнее и приятнее.
