We are expecting 2 special guests,   Stacey Matrazzo, author of "Native Plants for Floida Gardens",  and Bryon White, one of the founders of the company America Yaupon Tea Company.  Both should be informative and fun.  It will be great to see and hear everyone!

Two videos and a short presentation by a representative of The Yaupon Brothers American Tea Co.

The Yaupon Brothers American Tea Co. makes tea from the ONLY naturally caffeinated plant to grow in North America, the Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria).  For thousands of years, indigenous people in the Southeast USA drank an infusion of Yaupon leaves and water to purify and energize body and mind. The science behind Yaupon’s amazing properties and health benefits is now known and the Yaupon Brothers are promoting the Yaupon Holly as a sustainable Florida native crop.  The tea they make is sustainably harvested locally from their organically certified property in Florida.  It is good and good for you – naturally caffeinated, an antioxidant-rich superfood, contains no tannin AND tastes great!
