As its common name implies, the Brazilian Peppertree is an aromatic tree with a spicy flavor. Its various parts, including the leaves, are rich in essential oil. Traditionally, an infusion (tea) is prepared from the leaves and taken at a suggested dosage of half a cup, 2 times daily.
To prepare the infusion, place 15 g of the powdered leaves in a tea ball or gauze bag and allow the powder to steep in 250 mL of freshly boiled hot water in a covered ceramic pot for 10–15 minutes. Pour the infusion through a fine strainer to remove any sediment and allow it to cool for a time before drinking. Refrigerate unused portions in a well-sealed container.
Caution: Not for internal use during pregnancy or lactation. If you are taking medications or have a medical condition, consult with a health care professional before use. Keep this product out of the reach of children.
I have been using Brazilian Pepper tree leaves for about 10 years. I discovered the amazing medicinal properties of the leaves while I was trying to eradicate the trees from my farm in Hawaii. Since I no longer live there I chose this powder to make my pills and infusions. Great quality and value.
