Coca" is a medicinal tea made
from the leaves of the Coca plant (Erythroxylum coca
lam). This tea has been used over four thousand years
by the andean natives in South America. Coca was and
is still considered a sacred aspect of the Andean
culture. It is only in this past century that the
chemical configuration was changed to make the drug
cocaine. Since then, the rest of the world has seen
Coca as the raw material for the drug cocaine and
not as the medicinal plant used for thousands of years.

peoples lives. Before giving birth, a woman drinks
and chews Coca to hasten the labor and ease the pain.
When a child is born, relatives celebrate by chewing
the Coca leaf together. When a young man wants to
marry a girl, he offers Coca to her father. And when
somebody dies, Mate De Coca is drunk at the wake and
a small pile of leaves are placed in the coffin before
burial. From ancient times, these rituals were considered
sacred, and as such, the Coca leaf continues to have
a great significance in the culture of the Andean

contains the most oxygen, thereby giving the fullest
taste to tea. Water that has been boiling for some

removal after the time for steeping has elapsed. Draw
into a tea pot or kettle the best fresh water that
you have available. Warm the teapot and cups while
the water is boiling.
