Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa), or Uña de Gato, is a climbing vine from the Peruvian Amazon. It gains its name from the barbed ‘claws’ with which it climbs the rainforest canopy. Cat’s Claw has been used by the Ashaninka people of Peru for at least 2,000 years. Rio Amazon Cat’s Claw tea bags contain added Cinnamon, Ginger, Cardamon and Orange fruit, giving the tea a pleasant, warming taste.


    Teabags: Infuse one teabag in freshly boiled water. Leave for 3-5 minutes before drinking.

    Loose Tea: Put 3 heaped teaspoons (5g) of Cat's Claw into a saucepan with 3 cups (600ml) of cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain and serve. Add sugar or honey as desired. Drink 3 cups per day, or as recommended by your health practitioner.
