New York City, New York  — June 23, 2024  -- Yaupon Brothers American Tea Co., which was recognized as an Emerging Trend at the Summer Fancy Food Show 2022 by Food Business News, is back at the Summer Fancy Foods Show from June 23 to 25 at the Javits Center in New York City.

Located in the SUSTA Pavilion, Booth #6309, Yaupon Brothers will be on hand throughout Summer Fancy Foods sampling their 100% American grown and made and widely acclaimed Yaupon teas, which are USDA Certified Organic and Regenerative by QCS.

Yaupon Brothers is featuring their latest addition to their main product lineup - Spiced Peach.

Founded in 2015 by brothers Bryon and Kyle White Yaupon Brothers American Tea Co. is the leading producer of Yaupon Tea in the United States.

Whole Foods named Yaupon the #1 top ten food trend for 2023, Forbes Magazine called 2023 ‘The Year of Yaupon’, Bon Appétit named Yaupon Brothers’ Lavender Coconut one of their favorite herbal teas, Men’s Health named Yaupon Brothers American Green ‘Best New Tea in 2023, and Garden & Gun Magazine awarded Yaupon Brothers with their 2023 Made in the South Sustainability Award.

All these accolades and acclaim are evidence that Americana Yaupon tea is getting the recognition it deserves - not just as a delicious tea, but also as an American made alternative to imported tea.

Yaupon comes from the naturally caffeinated leaves of the Yaupon Holly tree and is the only caffeinated plant native to North America. Yaupon contains around 30% less caffeine than coffee but also serves up a healthy dose of theophylline and theobromine, which complement the caffeine to provide a smooth and jitter-free energy boost with no crash. Like its South American cousin, the Yerba Mate, Yaupon has dozens of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, polyphenols, and antioxidants to fortify the body and calm the mind but with few bitter tannins.

About Yaupon Brothers American Tea Co.

Yaupon Brothers American Tea Co. was founded by brothers Bryon and Kyle White in 2015 in New Smyrna Beach, Florida to bring back the lost practice of making a caffeinated herbal tea from America’s only native caffeine source - the Yaupon Holly tree. Yaupon Brothers is one of the original American Yaupon tea brands, is the largest producer of Yaupon Holly tea in North America, and is leading the rebuilding of the American tea industry.

About Yaupon Holly Tea

Yaupon /╦łyôpän/ comes from the naturally caffeinated leaves of the Yaupon Holly tree and is the only caffeinated plant native to North America. Yaupon contains around 30% less caffeine than coffee but also serves up a healthy dose of theophylline and theobromine, which complement the caffeine to provide a smooth and jitter-free energy boost with no crash. Like its South American cousin, the Yerba Mate, Yaupon has dozens of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, polyphenols, and antioxidants to fortify the body and calm the mind.

Yaupon is native to the American Southeast, so it needs less fertilizers, pesticides, and inputs than non-native crops. Yaupon provides equal or greater per-acre economics than more conventional crops like cotton, peanuts, soybeans, pecans, citrus and many others. Yaupon is productive for as long as 100 years. It stabilizes the soil, prevents erosion, and creates beneficial habitat for wildlife, while also creating economic opportunities.
