Yaupon Dark Roast Tea
Lost Pines Wildcrafted Yaupon Tea : 20 single tea bags
The only caffeine native to the U.S.
"We wildcrafted in the Lost Pines Forest of Central Texas, from areas where thinning yaupon helps the forest recover from recent fires and restores habitats for critters like the endangered Houston Toad." - Jason from Lost Pines Yaupon Tea
Dark roasted, wild harvested yaupon yields a jitter-free, energizing brew. Depending on strength, the flavor is anywhere from light, caramelly and buttery to intensely rich, complex, nutty and smoky with a velvety texture.
Yaupon is virtually free of tannins so you can steep longer to bring out more flavor without risking the bitterness of regular tea. In strong brews the slight bitterness of theobromine, coveted by lovers of dark chocolate, can be tasted (and felt!). Theobromine is the pleasure molecule that increases feelings of well being, contentment and focus.

The story of Lost Pines Yaupon Tea:
Jason spent years experimenting with different methods of harvesting, curing and roasting yaupon until he came up with the methods we're using today to make what we consider the best yaupon tea around. Heidi and John tried the tea and were hooked. The three of us decided to turn this into a business and bring yaupon into the mainstream. Making yaupon tea is truly an art form that changes with the seasons. We're constantly evolving our process to find ways to improve our craft.
