Yaupon Brothers is now working with our friends Jen & Steve Lorch of Table Rock Tea, Co., in Pickens County, South Carolina. Steve & Jen will be lovingly processing our Yaupon just as if it were their own tea. Speaking of, Table Rock Tea is one of only a handful of tea plantations in the United States. Jen & Steve have over 11,000 seedlings of Camellia Sinensis in their state-of-the-art greenhouse. That's impressive! We'll keep you updated on our adventures with Table Rock Tea!

Companies likeYaupon Brothers,Yazoo Yaupon, andDelta Arts District, are reintroducing these endemic agricultural products to meet the moment. The time is right for American-grown alternatives to tea, and that means it's time for the mighty Yaupon to return to greatness...and it starts with you.
