Yaupon Mercantile celebrated the opening of their new business and their chamber membership with a ribbon cutting. Yaupon Mercantile's mission is to reintroduce yaupon tea to the US market. Yaupon holly is the only naturally caffeinated plant in North America and grows in the Southeastern part of the country (including Texas). Yaupon tea is delicious and has a fascinating history dating to prehistoric times. Because of its health benefits and stimulating properties, yaupon tea enjoyed centuries of popularity, but by the 19th century was overshadowed by less expensive imported beverages such as coffee, Asian tea and chocolate. With a renewed interest in hot tea and 'yerba maté' and an emphasis on sustainability, buying local, organic produce and GMO concerns, the time is right!
