You can leave the bag in the cup and enjoy several cups (recommended 3 servings) from just one sachet, just continue to add hot water.

Mitzie Mee – Sanne: The lemongrass/mint combo is really refreshing. I love that it doesn’t go bitter, so you can leave the tea bags in the tea for a long time, for an extra intense flavor.

What is Yaupon Holly Tea?

Yaupon is an ancient, historic tea, made from the leaves of a tree called Yaupon Holly, which is the only naturally caffeinated plant in North America. The tea is rich in antioxidants and has caffeine levels similar to Asian green tea, but Yaupon Holly does not contain tannins, which is what causes the bitterness found in ordinary tea.


About Yazoo Yaupon

Yazoo Yaupon was founded in Clarksdale, Mississippi, by Oliver Luckett. After a successful career in Hollywood and five years living in Iceland, Oliver returned to the Mississippi Delta to be close to his father, and to help boost the local economy. Back in his hometown, Oliver soon learned about the amazing Yaupon Holly tree, America’s only caffeinated plant, its roots in indigenous culture, and its prolific growth throughout the Mississippi Delta…including in his dad’s backyard! Oliver was soon introduced to Bryon White, the co-founder of Yaupon Brothers American Tea based in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. They joined forces to create Yazoo Yaupon, which aims to elevate an entire region using this incredible homegrown tea to promote inclusion, transformation, and revitalization in the cradle of American culture – The Mississippi Delta.
