Eric Knight and Stacy Coplin established Local Leaf in 2016, captivated by the abundant foliage of Central Texas. Their passion lies in providing locally sourced Yaupon tea, harvested from the wild. While they briefly ventured away from Texas, their deep-rooted affection for local Yaupon tea never waned.
In 2016, they returned to their Texan roots and birthed Local Leaf, now known for offering Yaupon Mate and Yaupon Matcha. Each week, they embark on forest forages to craft North America's sole caffeinated beverage from Yaupon leaves. This remarkable plant is rich in polyphenols, antioxidants, and inflammation-fighting flavonoids. One delighted customer raves, "The flavor is absolutely divine! Roasted Yaupon is my personal favorite!" Discover the natural goodness of Local Leaf's Yaupon tea today.
