This delicious, small-batch, sweetened artisan tea blend is comprised of Florida-grown organic green yaupon, cascade hops, a strawberry tisane and just a touch of raw organic Florida sugar.
The yaupon Holly bush is the only caffeinated plant native to the US and was first discovered and brewed into a tea by the Ais and Timucua tribes. This hardy, drought and heat-tolerant plant grows from Eastern North Carolina, down to Florida and across to Texas. It contains roughly the same amount of caffeine as green tea.
Yaupon is considered a superfood with important nutrients and powerful antioxidants just like traditional tea and when blended with local Florida cascade hops and a strawberry tisane, it becomes a calming blend with bright and bold flavors. This wouldn’t be an Embrew blend without a touch of sweetener already in the tea bag, in this case raw organic sugar also grown in Florida.
