For those days you just can't decide, suggested by Kirk H.
- Half a teaspoon of your favorite loose leaf yaupon
- Half a teaspoon of your other favorite loose leaf yaupon
Steep booth loose leaf yaupon together in a mug of hot water for about 3 minutes. Strain the loose leaf out and enjoy a yaupon taste all your own.
I now drink it at home, in the quiet hours of the morning to remind me of sleeping under the stars.
