More Information

Rio Amazon Pata De Vaca Teabags are made from the Pata de Vaca (meaning ‘cow’s foot’), a small tree native to the tropical rainforests of Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Paraguay. This popular South American beverage is consumed as tea after each meal, and has been in use for more than sixty years by modern Brazilians.

  • 40 Tea bags.
  • An ideal after-meal beverage.
  • Used as a healing agent by the indigenous to treat a wide variety of health conditions.

The Pata De Vaca grows to heights of around 5-10m and produces 7-10cm long leaves that are shaped like a cow’s foot. It is these leaves which are prepared to make an infusion or leaf tea. It has been used for millenium as a contraceptive in both Meso and South America; however, it's most common use in the Ecuadorean Amazon is to treat cases of high cholesterol or kidney ailments. Pata de Vaca may also be useful to those who want to control a 'sweet tooth.'
