Body and Mind Benefits

Want a caffeinated tea that will help clarify your mind and fortify your body? It’s time to try American Yaupon tea. Indigenous people, European colonists, and early American settlers all drank tea from Yaupon before it faded into obscurity for over 200 years. Today we know the science behind Yaupon’s amazing properties and health benefits, and we’re here to make it your new favorite tea!

The Yaupon Difference

Yaupon contains around 30% less caffeine than coffee, but also serves up a healthy dose of theophylline and theobromine, which complement the caffeine to provide a smooth and jitter-free energy boost with no crash. Like its South American cousin, the Yerba Mate, Yaupon has dozens of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, polyphenols and antioxidants to fortify the body and calm the mind.

Agriculture in Florida

Yaupon offers all the benefits of tea, coffee, or Yerba Mate, but it's grown right here in America. Yaupon isn’t imported from abroad, so it results in a smaller carbon footprint, less stress on the environment, and real jobs and economic opportunities for American farmers and workers. Yaupon Brothers maintains a partnership with the University of Florida’s Institute of Food & Agricultural Science to help create a new native alternative crop for Florida farmers. This regenerative agriculture model results in less nutrient pollution, reduced water use, and resilience to natural disasters like droughts, freezes, and hurricanes.
