If anyone has questions about yaupon, I’d be happy to try and answer. My name is Jason Ellis, I’m one of the founders of Lost Pines Yaupon Tea. We have been producing yaupon tea for about 5 years now, one of a small handful of companies doing so. We wild harvest in areas where removing yaupon helps restore habitat for the critically endangered Houston toad, mitigates forest fires and helps restore natural plant community balance.
