What is yaupon? We like to say "It's Texan, for Tea." It's the only naturally caffeinated plant native to North America. You can steep it like tea, brew it like its cousin Yerba mate, or put your own twist on each cup.
Our medium roast yaupon features our delicious dried yaupon leaves roasted, though not quite as much as our Marfa dark roast. This emphasizes the subtle caramel notes in every sip.
Enjoy yaupon today and experience the delicious flavor and gentle natural boost of energy!
