YAYAYA was honored to host the first annual American Yaupon Association
meeting in Austin, TX. Yaupon stewards from across the country were present including: Catspring Yaupon
, Frank Community Farm
, Local Leaf
, Lost Pines Yaupon Tea
and Yaupon Brothers American Tea Co
. Although a small group at the time, this meeting represented a huge step in the mission of bringing honor and attention to the previously lost yaupon plant.
