An Indian tribe in the rainforest of Brazil called themselves the “Lapachos”. His shamans communicated with big cats and snakes and used the bark of a large red-flowered tree for magical healing potions. The people have now been extinct for a long time.

We like it because of its pleasant smoky taste, which is a little reminiscent of vanilla.

What ginseng is to the Chinese, lapacho is to South Americans.
