Ayahuasca Brews #
A large metal pot of brown, bubbling liquid ayahuasca brewed from B. caapi a other P. viridis. Photos fro an ayahuasca brewing So Paulo. Plants cultivated by photographer in a green house. B. caapi is locally called Tucunac and P. viridis is called Chacrona or Rainha. This was a small brewing, resulting in a few liters. It took a full day to make the tea, consuming a lot of wood for the fire. [So Paulo, Brazil]
