It's been a while since we posted on our blog, but that's only because so many AMAZING things have been happening!

In mid-February, a comprehensive article about Yaupon was published by BBC Travel's Matt Stirn. The article is, in our view, the best public source yet for information on the past, present, and future of the Yaupon Holly. We encourage everyone to give the article a read here.

Another thing! Yaupon Brothers American Tea was selected as one of seven finalists at the Blackstone Launchpad Global Pitch Competition, and we won the People's Choice Award! We are so grateful for all the supporters who voted for us, and also to represent the Sunshine State and the University of Central Florida!

Stay tuned for more great happenings at Yaupon Brothers, like our new factory opening soon with tours, gift shop, and a cafe!
