I recently returned from Austin, Texas where I attended the inaugural board meeting of the American Yaupon Association, a non-profit collective of "Yaupontreneurs," (see what I did there), and a group devoted to promoting research, marketing, and advancement of the Yaupon Holly in commerce. I've been working on this association project for a while, but to see all of these fine folks come together to achieve universal success was touching. I really enjoyed the discussion and look forward to many more. 

Soon, the American Yaupon Association will be officially non-profit, with a 501c(5) designation. Then we'll be able to begin raising funds to support the mission of the organization - to bring Yaupon to consumers everywhere!

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.
