Yaupon leaves are truly a gift. They are the only naturally occurring source of caffeine that grows in Texas. The leaves are also loaded with antioxidants and all the other compounds that make traditional green tea good for you. On top of all that, tea made from the leaves has a slight, natural sweetness to it making it not just fantastically good for you but also wonderful tasting.
Dried Yaupon holly leaves were smoked as part of assorted Native American rituals.
It’s natural. It’s stimulating. It’s delicious. It’s sustainable!
