Pau d'Arco (sometimes called lapacho, taheebo, Tabebuia Avellanedae or Tabebuia Impetiginosa) is the inner bark of a majestic flowering Amazonian tree. The Pau d'Arco tree grows up to 30 meters in height and the base of the tree can measure up to 3 meters in diameter.
Indigenous people noticed that the Pau d'Arco tree does not rot, even when it is dead. Pau d'Arco bark contains intrinsic chemical factors that fight fungus and mold, even in some of the wettest environments on Earth. This was likely how and why indigenous people started using the bark medicinally to fight fungal conditions.
Pau d'Arco is a wonderful herb with many documented properties.
Dosage: 1 Tablespoon makes 1-2 liters of tea. One may add 1 Teaspoon of the herb Cat's Claw to the Pau d'Arco tea to make a traditional Shipibo Peruvian tea.

Pau d'Arco teas make a fantastic base to cacao drinks. Simply add cacao beans or nibs and blend. Also adding some form of sweetener (such as raw yacon root syrup, agave cactus nectar, stevia, honey, fruit, etc.) makes a wonderful tasting beverage; yet take note that the more sweetener that is used, the less effective is the pau d'arco.
Pau d'Arco tea possesses a wonderful flavor and has a naturally sweet taste, yet contains no sugar. Pau d'Arco is a great herbal base for all teas. Experiment with mixing it with other herbs.
