Yaupon tea is the only source of caffeine native to North America. It also contains the mood elevating stimulant theobromine and is rich in antioxidants. Yaupon was the tea of the Native Americans and sipped by Spanish Conquistadors in St. Augustine. Now its fresh, mildly roasted flavor and restorative benefits can be enjoyed by you!

Bought a bag of this at a farmers market a few months ago. A very refreshing tea, usually brews up less bitter than black or green tea. Gently uplifting too.
