Also known as `Purple Lapacho` - infusions prrepared from the bark of Pau D`Arco trees have been used by many rainforest tribes for over two thousand years to contribute to the immune system.
Pau D`Arco tea is prepared using only certified inner bark from the ‘cambium’ layer of these magnificent rainforest hardwoods. This process is entirely sustainable and the bark can be ‘harvested’ causing no permanent damage to the tree.
