What is the one beverage we must have daily aside for water? Caffeine!
University of Florida researchers have found that yaupon leaves have the anti-oxidation potential of blueberries and are practically free of tannin, which reduces bitterness considerably.
Native Americans once used the leaves and twig tips of this plant to make an energizing tea.
Yaupon is a cousin to the commercially available South American "yerba mate" but has a milder flavor.
The family who grows the tea experienced devastation from the Bastrop wildfires of 2011. It destroyed their home as well as most of the vegetation on their 90 acre piney woods. Some of the yaupon along the creeks managed to escape the fires and the stands of yaupon that had burned began shooting up new growth. In many parts of the property, it was the first sign of green to emerge from the ashes
It's time to rediscover North America's very own....yaupon tea!
