Eric Knight and Stacy Coplin founded Local Leaf in 2016. With an abundance of foliage in Central Texas, they have found a treasure! The couple focuses on providing locally wild-harvested Yaupon tea. Before the business opened, the two have wandered away from Texas. However, their love for local Yaupon tea has always been with them.
For this reason, they came back to Texas in 2016 and founded the Local Leaf. Today, they offer Yaupon Mate and Yaupon Matcha. Every week, they forage yaupon in the forest to produce North America’s only caffeinated drink. Yaupon is also high in polyphenols, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory flavonoids. A happy customer said, “That stuff is beyond delicious! The roasted is my favorite!”
