LOST PINES YAUPON TEA
Lost Pines Yaupon was founded in Austin, Texas by Jason Ellis, Heidi Wachter, and John Seibold in 2015. They sustainably wild harvest yaupon in the Lost Pines Forest region of Central Texas, in areas where thinning overgrown yaupon helps restore plant community balance as well as habitat for the endangered Houston Toad and other critters. Lost Pines Yaupon makes both a light roast and dark roast yaupon in loose leaf or tea bags, and yaupon tea concentrate in a variety of flavors. They spent years experimenting with different methods of harvesting, curing and roasting yaupon until they came up with the methods they’re using today.
