Amargo, a tree with a very bitter flavor, is taken in the form of a tincture, decoction, infusion (tea), and in capsules. Among its main traditional uses, 1 cup of Amargo tea is taken 15 minutes prior to meals to aid digestion*.
To prepare an infusion of Amargo, place half a teaspoonful of the powdered bark and wood in a tea ball or gauze bag and allow the powder to steep in 1 cup of freshly boiled hot water in a covered ceramic pot for 10–15 minutes. Pour the infusion through a fine strainer to remove any sediment and allow it to cool for a time before drinking. Refrigerate unused portions in a well-sealed container.
