Lapacho

Also known as the "tea of the Incas", it is made from the inner bark of the Argentinian Lapacho tree. With no caffeine and very few tannins, it develops a pleasant, sweetish aroma, with notes of vanilla and caramel.

Recent research has shown that Lapacho can play a very important role in building up the immune system.

 

Mate

Brewed from a plant native to South America, which grows wild in southern Brazil and Argentina, mate is enjoyed daily, and all day long, in a calabash gourd, by millions of Latin Americans.

It is a stimulating drink, containing caffeine and many vitamins, often used in herbal weight-loss preparations.
