  • This event has passed.

This program has been canceled as of 9/18/23.

This program will focus on Yaupon Holly, the only plant native to North America that produces caffeine. Indigenous communities have brewed Yaupon into a tea-like beverage and drank it for its many health benefits and during ceremonies. During the program, participants will learn the history of Yaupon, roast Yaupon, and sample a variety of Yaupon tea preparation with Crystal Stokes, CEO of Project CommuniTea.

This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center on Saturday, November 4th, 2023.
