Yahola is a local tea company that specializes in Yaupon tea blends. Yaupon is our only caffeinated plant in North America. Its closest relative is Yerba Mate. It is full of Antioxidants, vitamins, and is mood-enhancing. Yahola aims to strengthen communities, families, and friends through the enjoyment of Yaupon tea. Let's bring back the tea known to serve as a vehicle for peace, purity, and strong relations. The indigenous tribes of the Southeast offered Yaupon, "black drink", during peacemaking ceremonies and presented packets of leaves to visitors to demonstrate pure and friendly intentions.
Yahola aims to continue Yaupon's legacy as a plant of peace and purity by building and forming Yahola as a Social Enterprise first and foremost. Our mission is to bring you joy through the taste and enjoyment of native Yaupon and the knowing that your support will help protect land and culture in the Low Country. Only Joy ~YAHOLA ~
