We’re excited to be carrying a new kind of tea! Yaupon!
Yaupon Tea (Yow-Pon) (Ilex Vomitoria) is a type of holly plant native to southeastern North America. It is a small tree or shrubbery with glossy dark green leaves. The fruit growing off the branches are small and red. The fruit are an important form of nutrition to many bird species such as duck, quail, turkey, bluebirds and others. Black bear, fox, raccoon, skunks, and deer also eat the fruit!
The leaves and stems are brewed to make the tea. The yaupon plant was prized among Native American tribes in southern Florida. The tea was used for male-only purification and unity rituals.
The tea has ingredients such as caffeine and theobromine, making it different from other caffeine free herbal teas. It gives the drinker a boost without the jittery after affect!
It also offers health benefits such as high anti-oxidant levels, anti-inflammatory properties, and aids in prevention of osteoporosis!
Try it in its traditional holly, roasted, or blended with various other herbal teas. It’s delicious hot or iced. We even made an iced tea lemonade out of our coconut-lavender blend!
Come in and try a cup, or buy some by the ounce to enjoy at home.

Recipe to make Iced Tea Lemonade
In a 16 ounce glass mix 12 ounces of iced tea with the juice of a half of a lemon (black tea works great, but you can experiment with herbals and flavored teas as well. Some of our favorites are made with Black Mango Tea or Ayurvedic Pitta Tea.) Warm 2 Tbs of honey and stir into tea/ lemon mix (10 seconds in the microwave works great). Pour mixture over ice and serve with a lemon wedge. Try a rock sugar rim for a sweet addition!
Tips for making iced tea: Brew your tea twice as strong if you are brewing it to be iced. For one serving of iced tea, use 2 TBS of loose-leaf tea to make your infusion. For a pitcher of iced-tea, use a half cup of loose-leaf tea.

Is Your Skin Itchy, Irritated, or Dry?
This soothing, anti-aging powerhouse can help!
Chamomile Tea is well-known for its calming, stress-reducing effects and is widely used as a night-time tea to promote sleep. But did you know that Chamomile is just as calming for the skin? When applied topically, it has been shown that the herb will reduce redness, fight dry & flaky skin, help with eczema & psoriasis, soothe a rash, and since its anti-microbial it can also help speed healing.
Packed with anti-oxidants, chamomile can help protect the skin from free radical damage and suppress the visible signs of aging.
Chamomile is gentle on sensitive or fragile skin which makes it ideal for use after waxing and to ease a diaper rash, sunburn, bedsore, or hemorrhoids.
Brew a cup of Chamomile tea and saturate a soft cloth with the infusion. Apply to the affected area for up to 10 minutes. Chamomile’s anti-septic properties make it a great addition to home-made cleansers and soaps as well.
