From Tea Story

Lapacho bark from the Brazilian-Argentinean borderland, mild and slightly sweet.

Deep in the rain forests of Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil grows the lapacho, an evergreen tree which can live to be up to 700 years old. Centuries ago the Incas used the extract of its bark to make a tea for pleasure; and the indigenous peoples worship the lapacho as the “tree of life”. The red tea is created by removing part of the bark of the tree and chopping the inner layer into small pieces. The infusion has an earthy note similar to vanilla.

Features and effects: It is rich in mineral components: iron, potassium, manganese, magnesium, as well as microelements: strontium, iodine, etc. Lapacho tea helps in case of anemia, allergy, bronchitis, gastritis, diabetes, and tumor diseases. This tea is also recommended after a chemotherapy course; it soothes the pain, has a calming effect, and decreases blood sugar. Supposedly, this tea helps greatly in cases of insomnia, anxiety, fear, it is caffeine-free.

A unique flavour that’s not necessarily bad, but you’ll likely drink this more for the health benefits than for the taste. It’s very light with an undertone of spice, but to be honest. Lapacho provides a very good base for the flavours, so worth adding your favourite ones, either Vanilla or any dry fruit you like. The brew is light-bodied, with hints of spice, and a bit smoky and earthy finish.
It is very good hot, but also very refreshing as either Iced or left cooled in the fridge.
If you’re new to Lapacho you should definitely try. It’s not only really tasty – but very good for you too!
