For more than 75 years, long before it became fashionable, Alvita was championing the profound health-giving properties of herbal teas. We travel to the far reaches of the globe for the finest herbs, the best growers, the most precious sources.
Small wonder that so many consumers trust the Alvita name. Today, it stands for more than 100 different teas, including classic single herb varieties, and our unique Alvita blends. The package you hold in your hand combines ancient herbal wisdom with modern science, and brings to you all the richness and benefits of herbal teas. This philosophy is the very reason why you will find sensible, English pillow style tea bags that are oxygen bleached, not chlorine treated. And why you won't find any strings, tags or staples.
We thank you for choosing our product, but more importantly, we thank you for the trust you've put in the herbal values that we all share.
Pau D'Arco (Tabebuia impetiginosa) is a hardy, deciduous tree that is able to withstand severe winds and weather. Pau D' Arco is found extensively throughout South America, Central America, Mexico and the Bahamas where it is frequently known as "Taheebo". The herb is harvested by peeling the bark from the tree in vertical strips from the ground up to the height of a man. Only the inner bark is used for beneficial purposes and must be carefully separated from the outer bark. Its purple inner bark was used by the Incas, who referred to it as "The Divine Tree". It has enjoyed renewed interest throughout the western world for its beneficial properties.
The best way to make a good cup of tea is by the infusion method. Place one tea bag in a cup and add no more than 6 oz of boiling water. Let steep for 3 minutes. Press the bag before removing to enhance flavor.
Add honey to sweeten.
Pau D' Arco inner bark
My husband drinks 4 cups of this throughout the day for colitis, and he has seen an improvement.
I can't go a day without my pau d'arco tea. I suffer with fibromyalgia and get yeast infections easily. This tea seems to help with that because if I miss taking it for a day, I feel much worse the next day. I enjoy the Alvita brand above other brands because it tastes much richer.

Love these tea bags out of all the three types of Pau D'Arco tea that iHerb sell, but it is now discontinued. Not Happy
If you can drink this you're a trooper

A very bitter taste that made me grimace not so prettily. But I guess you'll buy this for the health benefits, not for the great taste. I bought some capsules instead.

Lovely taste! Must be careful while getting one bag as they are quite thin and tear easily.
