Lost Maples - Medium Roast Yaupon Tea Loose Leaf
Smooth and mild, the medium roast yaupon is inspired by Lost Maples, a forest unlike any other in Texas. In the fall, the bigtooth maples along the Sabinal river, left over from the last Ice Age, don a magnificent array of colors echoed by the caramel notes in every cup.
What is Yaupon?
It's the only naturally-caffeinated plant to grow wild in North America. It was brewed for centuries by Native Americans. And then.. it was forgotten. Left behind by the business of modernity. Until now.
We harvest yaupon wild in the fields surrounding the CatSpring ranch. By the time our yaupon makes it into the hands of our harvesters, nothing has touched these leaves but sunshine and rainwater. (And the occasional cow, maybe.)
CatSpring Yaupon is as sustainable, and as natural as it gets.
Each of our blends pays homage to our roots in the land.
It's Texan, For Tea.®
