Once yaupon a time

Why aren’t more people talking about yaupon? It’s the energizing herb we’ve all been waiting for. Believe it or not, it’s actually native to North America – and can be found growing wild in Texas, Oklahoma, south Virginia and Florida. With stimulating properties similar to yerba maté and guayusa, yaupon was traditionally brewed into a tea for Native American purification rituals. Ready for a natural high? Try this light and lemony blend of wild-grown yaupon, lemon peel and lemongrass. It might just be a new morning ritual.

Sipdown. 5/29
Drank all of this coldbrewed.
Nice level of lemon – not overwhelming levels of lemongrass. I don’t like a lot of lemongrass.
yapon – just okay, kinda powdery

Good thing I didn’t buy a lot.

Another unofficial sipdown. Unfortunately, I recall nothing of this tea, but it presumably wasn’t amazing, otherwise I might have remembered the name. Drank it sometime at work; had 8g, so probably twice.

Enjoyed the flavour of this tea. Tastes like strawberry lemonade that’s for sure. Didn’t really notice the boost, therefor I don’t know If I would buy this one again.

In store sample.

Another one that I quite enjoy. The lemon blast is quite true, swiftly followed up by that distinct yerba mate punch.

I expected this to be sour, but it’s not at all. The lemon is like a sweet, creamy, bright lemon dessert. Yum. And I love the hint of warming, zingy ginger too. I also expected this to be more of an herbal tea, but it’s not that either. More like a lemon cream and ginger dessert. I’ve really been enjoying this one.

Awesome. I love ginger but can barely taste any in this so I don’t know why another reviewer said the ginger was too strong. The lemon SHINES through and I love to make this to drink on the drive to work.

I really wish I could taste more lemon than ginger in this tea, but unfortunately the ginger is way too overpowering. I’ve found I’m extremely sensitive to ginger in my blends which will make my rating of this blend extremely biased. This is definitely a tea that would appeal more for someone looking for an earthier citrus blend. The yaupon is very interesting though and I’d love to see DAVIDsTEA continue to experiment with these new and innovative leaves in such a mainstream market!

Gross. This tasted like dank lemon weed. It is so overpoweringly WEED tasting that I couldnt think of anything else while drinking it. Practically gave me cottonmouth as a reflex.

I don’t normally like lemon tea but it’s citrusy without being sour. Caffeinated enough to give me a kick in the morning when I need it. Near-impossible to oversteep

Holy cow talk about LEMON! This one is strong for you lemon lovers you will definitely get your fix with this one. While I couldn’t drink this everyday because I think I would get sick of it fast, it is nice to switch up and get a lemony kick every now and then.
