Bulk & Ingredient Partnerships
We are proud to provide yaupon as an ingredient in several forms:
- Loose leaf (Cut & Sift)
- Tea bag cut
We've had our yaupon in matcha lattes, chocolates, beer, ice cream, and kombucha; and we're just getting started!
As our young company pioneers the reintroduction of yaupon into the beverage market, CatSpring Yaupon has the luxury and blessing to harvest year round from vast holdings of pristine land. Unlike most of the world’s commodity tea and herbal producers, we process material year-round harvesting evergreen yaupon continuously. Our wild crop harvests are sourced from extensive acreage that we carefully screen for purity. CatSpring Yaupon works with landowning families and trusts who benefit from our dedicated team of skilled harvesters sustainably harvesting yaupon using techniques that both manage and nurture the acreage so it remains in excellent condition. The results are truly a win-win-win: landowners benefiting from their relationship with CatSpring Yaupon no longer view yaupon as a plant nuisance, but rather a useful native plant simply requiring skilled management; land that may have lain fallow or have been developed for conventional agriculture can instead be sustainably maintained; and our customers enjoy a natural, healthful, and refreshing beverage from the heart of Texas.
While we maintain inventory, most initial orders of substantial volume are customized to provide the highest quality, absolutely most fresh yaupon specifically for our new customers. Although yaupon may be harvested year round, it is a capital intensive proposition requiring vast labor, transportation, and equipment resources. As a fast growing startup we stock quantities of yaupon for our rapidly growing customer base, larger orders may require 1-3 months notice so we can service your requirements without slowing existing supply chain flow. Simply share your forecast needs and we will work closely with you to ensure your supplies of CatSpring Yaupon are met consistently. This is but one way we guarantee that all yaupon we supply is of excellent quality and absolutely the freshest obtainable.
CatSpring Yaupon is pioneering new harvesting, processing and packaging techniques and technologies. While yaupon has blessed Texas with plenty of this hearty, energizing botanical, CatSpring Yaupon is now the world’s leading supplier, and forever committed to ethical labor practices, sustainable ag-management and consistent quality in analytical and sensory testing.
The yaupon we supply your business is pure (we harvest from completely natural pesticide-free lands), highly uniform (we follow a rigorous classification of yaupon particle sizes) and delicious (our experts constantly assess CatSpring Yaupon to maintain established baseline sensory attributes). Our production ability as a growing company in this emerging botanical market is virtually limitless, and with enough advance notice, we can produce to virtually any customer need.
If you are interested in a larger order, please inquire and we will respond shortly with target delivery dates & spec sheets. We’re excited to sharing yaupon with you and your customers.
