What Is Yaupon?

The drinking of yaupon goes back into the time of the ancients, before the cataloging of history and the arrival of Europeans in the New World. Yaupon, the only caffeinated plant native to North America and a relative of yerba mate and guayusa, is an inconspicuous little evergreen that grows along the coastal regions of the Southern United States and the Atlantic coast.

Lost Pines Habitat Conservation Plan

In the past, the Houston toad lived all over the central coastal area of Texas, but thanks to development and drought, they are now critically endangered. To help restore the forest and make the land more favorable for the toad, the Lost Pines Habitat Conservation Plan was created.

Lost Pines Yaupon was founded in 2015 in Austin, Texas by three good friends Jason Ellis, Heidi Wachter and John Seibold.  Years ago Jason went down an internet rabbit hole about a fascinating little plant, the yaupon holly.

So elegant smell and flavor. Even so effective to mental activities.

New Type of Tea

Read about Yaupon on the BBC website and decided to give it a try. I ordered both the dark and light roasts. Both taste good. I experienced alertness without the caffeine shakes. I was able to enjoy without having to add sugar or honey. I will definitely buy this again in the future.
