SIP a local secret
Why do we love this plant? Because it's an amazing ally to human health and wellness. Yaupon is full of valuable phytochemicals including caffeine (only about 1%), theobromine (an uplifting gentle stimulant, the happiness "drug" in chocolate), quercetin (anti-inflammatory), and other antioxidants. It's delicious and wild and makes a delicious brew. The northern cousin of yerba maté, yaupon is the only native North American plant to contain caffeine and theobromine – and it only grows in Texas and a handful of southern states.
Sweet, and earthy with similarities in flavor to both yerba maté and traditional black tea, yaupon’s profile is rich and mysterious – just like nature. Offering a sustainable uplifting boost of energy with no crash, yaupon tea is an enjoyable, buzz-free brew. The caffeine in yaupon is only about 1%. In our experience, people who have sensitivities to caffeine have been able to enjoy our teas because they're more uplifting than stimulating. And for folks that are used to caffeine, yaupon is a new perky feeling.
