YAUPON! What is this stuff? It’s from the yaupon holly plant and is native to the USA. This particular Yaupon is wild grown in Florida. Organic and Sustainable. I was excited to first sample yaupon at the World Tea Expo!
I find the flavor similar to guayusa – it’s got that creamy sweet finish. However yaupon has a wild, fresh, herby, vegetal grassy taste kinda like a mate. Big caffeine hit too – yowza!

If you like mate and guayusa, you’ll very much like Yaupon. I find this tea a little hard to rate as this is the first yaupon I’ve tried so far.
