This ‘tea’ is obtained from the inner bark of the South American Red Lapacho tree. Properly prepared, the pleasant flavour is slightly reminiscent of vanilla. Lapacho tea should be enjoyed lukewarm or cold.
Preparation: Put 1 to 2 tbs of Lapacho bark into one liter of cold water. If you prefer, heat the tea until lukewarm and leave to infuse for 5-15 minutes.
