This is a green-processed yaupon. The aroma is pleasant – almost Christmassy. It’s good! Something about the flavour reminds me of sweetfern tea, but it isn’t spicy. Very faint bitterness. There is a taste of holly.
Of the green yaupons I’ve tried, this one is my favourite; the holly taste comes through most strongly, I think. I wish it came in loose leaf format, rather than only in a bag (though this makes less of a difference with yaupon than with tea).
