What is Taheebo?

Theebo is a mysterious tree that is indigenous to the region of the Amazon basin in South America.
It has been drinking for 1500 years.It is an attractive tree as it was drunk as a tea in the Inca Empire.

"TAHEEBO NFD" is extremely rare

TAHEEBO NFD is extremely rare

The raw material resources of “TAHEEBO NFD”are very rare.The pure natural materials are not inexhaustible.

Of today’s numerous so-called “health teas”, most are artificially cultivated or synthesized.
The reasoning behind this approach is that pure, natural ingredients are only available in very small quantities, limiting their usefulness as basic ingredients. Moreover, harvesting such substances requires restraint in order to protect these natural resources, and it’s difficult to ensure consistent quality in terms of their composition.
Despite these challenges,“TAHEEBO NFD”is produced using only bast (inner bark) from extremely rare wild trees.Although it may seem that the price of“TAHEEBO NFD”is high, considering preservation and the quality side of limited natural resources, it is unavoidable.

Wood used in producing “TAHEEBO NFD”cannot be cultivated artificially.
The wood that serves as the basic ingredient for “TAHEEBO NFD” comes only from the Tabebuia avellanedae species in the Bignoniaceae family (scientific name: Bignoniaceae Tabebuia avellanedae Lor. ex. Gris), a tree that is indigenous to the forests of the Amazon basin in South America.
Tabebuia avellanedae is a large tree, reaching a mature height of 10 to 30 meters and having a trunk diameter from 50 centimeters to 1.5 meters. Its wood is hard, sometimes so much so that it cannot be cut with a chainsaw.
The species has resisted all attempts by people to grow it, and it is accepted that artificial cultivation is impossible.
Wood used in producing TAHEEBO NFD cannot be cultivated artificially

Tabebuia avellanedae, the tree from which“TAHEEBO NFD”is produced

“NFD”is only contained in Tabebuia avellanedae trees native to a specific region.
“TAHEEBO NFD” contains a beneficial ingredient known as “NFD” that plays an exceptional role in maintaining human health, and this is the most important reason that so many people are avid consumers of TAHEEBO JAPAN’s “TAHEEBO NFD.” Tabebuia avellanedae is known to occur naturally not only in Brazil but also in Argentina and Paraguay, but the beneficial ingredient “NFD” occurs only in Tabebuia avellanedae specimens that grow in a specific region of the Amazon basin in Brazil.
This difference can be attributed to the extremely complex natural conditions in the Amazon basin in terms of factors such as climate and soil. Despite being collectively known as the Amazon, the basin is vast and includes more than 1,000 tributaries; its headwaters are similarly diverse.
Different regions and tributaries evidence striking variations in rainy and dry season timing and duration, ultraviolet light exposure, rainfall, and river levels.
What’s more, plant and animal ecosystems that have become established over the ages exert an influence on the fertility of the soil.
As a result, Tabebuia avellanedae specimens(despite representing the same species)differ significantly in composition and quantity depending on where they grow.

Successfully identified the tree containing “NFD”after 50 years of investigation and research.
After 50 years of investigation and research, the late Dr. Walter Radames Accorsi*1, an international authority on South American botany, successfully identified an area that produces Tabebuia avellanedae trees containing the beneficial ingredient “NFD” .
Based on scientific data provided by Dr. Accorsi, TAHEEBO JAPAN harvests only Tabebuia avellanedae specimens from that specific region*2 for use as the basic ingredient in “TAHEEBO NFD” .
This approach constitutes a significant difference between TAHEEBO and IPE teas and similar teas from other manufacturers available in the marketplace.
*1:A professor emeritus at the Universidade de Sao Paulo, Dr. Accorsi was a recipient of the National Brazil Science Award, the most prestigious award that a Brazilian scientist can receive.
*2:TAHEEBO JAPAN has not made the location of the harvesting region public in order to protect the valuable natural resources found there from indiscriminate and illegal logging. Instead, the company refers to the area as the “specific region”.

Dr. Accorsi holding bark from Tabebuia avellanedae

Harvested trees are carefully selected from Tabebuia avellanedae specimens in the specific region.
The beneficial ingredient “NFD” is only found in the inner bark (bast) of Tabebuia avellanedae species, a layer just 7 millimeters thick between the outer bark and woody tissue. The trees must be at least 30 years old.
Based on a sense of responsibility for its product, TAHEEBO JAPAN has established a local organization to oversee the harvesting of this wood in Brazil. The actual harvesting is conducted in keeping with Dr. Accorsi’s wishes by a special team from the Taheebo Institute, which meticulously checks individual Tabebuia avellanedae trees in the specific region. Only specimens whose “NFD” content meets a certain standard are harvested. TAHEEBO JAPAN has established its own standards for “NFD” content based on the need to protect this resource and maintain consistent quality, and trees not meeting the standard are not harvested. “TAHEEBO NFD” is produced using only the extremely valuable inner bark (bast) of these carefully selected trees as its basic ingredient.

Commonly confused trees

There are many similar trees which are easy to mistake in a TAHEEBO tree.

The wood that serves as the basic ingredient for “TAHEEBO NFD” comes only from the Tabebuia avellanedae species in the Bignoniaceae family (scientific name: Bignoniaceae Tabebuia avellanedae Lor. ex. Gris), a tree that is indigenous to the forests of the Amazon basin in South America.
There are at least 100 species belonging to the genus Tabebuia throughout the Americas.Tabebuia avellanedae, a tree with a single purplish red flowering species that is indigenous to a specific region of the Amazon basin in South America becomes the material wood of “TAHEEBO NFD”.

Be careful of similar trees!
Numerous species in the family Bignoniaceae can be found worldwide, and there are at least 100 species belonging to the genus Tabebuia throughout the Americas.
Trees belonging to the genus Tabebuia have names such as ipe, ippe, ippi, pau’d arco, and uba in Brazil and produce a variety of white, yellow, pink, red, purple, and orange flowers.
Generally speaking, they can be broadly classified into three categories based on the color of their flowers (white, yellow, or purple), purple being the most numerous with more than 50 species.
Among the purple-flowering variety, species such as impetiginosa closely resemble avellanedae.
Be careful of similar trees!

TAHEEBO JAPAN applies the name “TAHEEBO” exclusively to Tabebuia avellanedae.
Thirty years ago, TAHEEBO JAPAN introduced Japan to Tabebuia avellanedae under the name TAHEEBO (meaning “tree of godly grace”) and began producing and selling “TAHEEBO NFD” , a tea made from the tree’s inner bark.
In recent years, teas derived from trees resembling the species avellanedae (similar products) have been marketed as“Taheebo tea”or“Ipe tea”.The name “TAHEEBO” seems to have been broadened to include trees resembling the genus Tabebuia, and its definition became vague and ambiguous.
But the tree known as the “tree of godly grace” should be one that benefits people, and there should be evidence of those benefits.
We can applies the name“TAHEEBO”exclusively to Tabebuia avellanedae, a single purplish red flowering species that is indigenous to a specific region* of the Amazon basin in South America.
Tabebuia avellanedae specimens growing in this specific region differ from trees of the same and similar species in other regions, and their inclusion of the beneficial ingredient “NFD” has been scientifically verified. This natural tree truly deserves its name meaning “tree of godly grace”.

We have not made the location of the harvesting region public in order to protect the valuable natural resources found there from indiscriminate and illegal logging.
Instead, the company refers to the area as the“specific region”.

“TAHEEBO NFD”Production process

Deep in the forests of the Amazon basin is the region from which TAHEEBO JAPAN harvests trees.
Some 70% of the Tabebuia avellanedae trees that grow there can be harvested as raw material for “TAHEEBO NFD” .

TAHEEBO NFD Production process

We select only high-quality trees that meet our standards for “NFD” content for use as raw material for “Taheebo NFD.” . Samples are tested beforehand to assess “NFD” content.
