Lost Pines Yaupon Tea
Yaupon (YO-pawn) is North America’s only native caffeinated tea and has been enjoyed for thousands of years. Like its cousin plants, yerba mate and guayusa, yaupon is packed with antioxidants and theobromine (from Greek “Food of the Gods”), the mood elevator familiar to lovers of bittersweet dark chocolate.
We harvest the yaupon ourselves to ensure the
highest quality and ethical practices. Our Yaupon comes from the Lost Pines Forest in Bastrop, Texas. Thinning yaupon helps the pine trees grow back and restores habitat for the endangered Houston toad after the historic fire of 2011.
