Yaupon is a naturally caffeinated plant and superfood. Native tribes used Yaupon in their most sacred ceremonies. Many native cultures also used it as food and medicine. It is rich in B vitamins and several antioxidants, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, chlorogenic acid, rutin, and luteolin. Yaupon contains three primary stimulants: caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline.
A brewed cup of Yaupon contains about 60mg caffeine, 1/3 less than coffee.
