These instructions are for preparation of a fine grind of the inner bark of the Pau d'arco tree.
Mix 3 tablespoons tea with one quart of cold distilled water in a teapot. The ratio can be increased to 4-6 tablespoons if deemed necessary.
Use only a glass or stainless steel pot. Do not use aluminum or tin containers.
Once tea comes to a boil let it "low boil" for at least 20 minutes in order to allow the beneficial compounds in the tea to release.
Pour the tea through a piece of linen cloth or tea strainer.
Sweetener such as honey or raw sugar can be added for flavor. Fruit juice can also be added to enhance the flavor.
