The Yaupon Asi Tea Philosophy:
To bring this ancient Native American tea back into the lives of today’s consumers, and to promote healthy living, an active lifestyle, harmony with nature, and accountability in business.
A Drink, A Ritual, A Thousand Years of Florida Tradition…
Spanish colonists began drinking Yaupon Tea in Florida as early as AD 1513.
Beginning perhaps thousands of years ago, the Timucua natives of Florida, along with many other tribes, brewed a sacred beverage from the roasted leaves and stems of the Yaupon Holly. They called this drink “Asi”, or “the purifier.” The resulting beverage was a powerful elixir of caffeine and antioxidants, and it came to be a cornerstone of hopewellian civilization. With the arrival of Europeans, the natives slowly died out, and the once mighty Yaupon assumed an inconspicuous place in the forest.
Yaupon Asi Tea , L.L.C. was founded to bring Yaupon back to modern consumers. Like it’s cousin, the Yerba Mate, Yaupon offers stimulating caffeine and healthful antioxidant properties. Yaupon is a Florida-native species, and it contains more caffeine than any other North American plant species. Yaupon is closely related to the South American hollies; the Guayusa and the Yerba Mate.
We think that once you try the ORIGINAL BEVERAGE OF FLORIDA, you’ll never switch back to coffee and tea. Some people even go as far to say that Yaupon is like a touch of paradise in a cup. We say…Consider the Source!
