Taheebo Cold and Infection Fighter Tea

Taheebo tea

Pau d'Arco bark makes a mildly woody, pleasant tasting tea, often referred to as taheebo in its native Brazil, where this tree is a keystone of herbal medicine. There are plenty of good reasons to add this herb to your tea blends whenever you are fighting an infection from colds, flu or other chronic immune system disorders

Ingredients:
Cinnamon * Pau D' Arco *
Additions: Cinnamon, honey, lemon
Recipe Instructions: Decoction :Like mnost all barks, taheebo can benefit from soaking in cold water overnight before brewing in the morning. Bring a tablespoon of shredded bark to a boil in at least 500 ml of cold water, then steep until cool enough to drink. Lemon helps your system absorb more of the helpful tannins. A pinch of cinnamon and honey make it tasty and all the more better to cure a head cold and soothe a sore throat.
