For thousands of years the people of the Andes have enjoyed the stimulating effects of natural coca leaves. Brewed in hot water, these leaves create a pleasant herbal tea, common throughout Bolivia.
Unfortunately illegal concoctions have given coca a bad name. It would take a huge amount of coca leaves to produce cocaine, and a lot of toxic additives. The only thing they have in common is their stimulant nature.
Coca tea promotes alertness and sense of well being without the jangly edge of coffee. Enjoy much as you would any other type of tea: soak for five minutes in boiling hot water and sip. We like to add a little honey for sweetness.
