Yaupon is a species of holly that is native to North America and has been consumed by indigenous peoples for centuries as a hospitality drink as well as ceremonially. It is the only plant in North America to have naturally occurring caffeine and it’s a great option for a little pick-me-up. Yaupon has an earthy, grassy flavor that is similar to Yerba Mate.
