Yaupon tea, wild harvested and dark roasted.

Yaupon yields a jitter-free, energizing brew. Whereas the Light Roast is closer to a green tea in flavor, the Dark Roast is closer to a black tea. Depending on how strong it's brewed, the flavor is anywhere from light caramelly and silky to intensely rich, complex, nutty and smoky with a velvety texture. Yaupon is virtually free of tannins so you can steep longer to bring out more flavor without risking the bitterness of regular tea. In strong brews the slight bitterness of theobromine, coveted by lovers of dark chocolate, can be tasted (and felt!). Theobromine is the pleasure molecule that increases feelings of well being, contentment and focus.

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.

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.
