Welcome to The Yaupon Brothers forest farm where they harvest yaupon holly!
Yaupon holly is North America’s only native caffeinated plant. It has the potential to replace coffee, tea and yerba mate in the USA and Canada. Most coffee and tea is shipped long distance, guzzling fossil fuels, but yaupon holly is a native, local source of the much loved caffeine buzz.
This can be a truly sustainable tea for millions of North Americans. As a native, wild plant it does not need any watering, fertilizer or pesticides and needs not be shipped across the oceans. The Yaupon Brothers, Bryon and Kyle White, are working to bring this ancient Native American tea back into the lives of modern Americans, and to promote healthy living, an active lifestyle, harmony with nature, and accountability in enterprise. Ethical sustainability and accountability all around.
