We're here in Florida sweating our tails off, and if you're anything like us, you want something ICE COLD to drink right about now. Fear not, because Yaupon is just as delicious iced as it is hot! We've been serving iced Yaupon at our events and markets, and we've been getting lots of requests from sweltering Yaupon fans who are parched and want to know how to do iced Yaupon. 

Here's how we do it:

Bring 2 pints of spring water to a boil, and add five teabags of your favorite Yaupon Brothers blend. (If you want to sweeten your brew, do it while it's hot! Honey, sugar, and anything sweet dissolves more easily in hot liquid than cold.) You can do this in a bowl, pitcher, or anything that can tolerate hot and cold water. Let it steep for a while - go watch a movie, take a nap, and then come back when the brew has cooled down. 

Now you have a nice Yaupon concentrate. Add more spring water until your desired strength is achieved, and then stick it the fridge overnight. Leave the teabags in the brew for a more robust flavor. You can take them out before serving. 

Next morning, you'll have delicious iced Yaupon to slake your thirst. 

Alternatively, if you're pressed for time, you can brew Yaupon hot and simply pour over ice once it has cooled down a bit. 

How do you drink your Yaupon? Send us your tips to Bryon@YauponBrothers.com, or tell us on Instagram or Facebook!

The Delta, and Mississippi in general, is also a land that is confronting a troubled past and making strides to build a brighter, more equitable future. The most famous example of this is the State's recently-adopted flag, which replaced one that was made up partly of the confederate battle insignia. The new state flag, called "The New Magnolia," was the result of public pressure across a bipartisan front. It was as if the state knew it had to move forward in a new way. This flag, along with the the musical heritage of the Delta, and the legend of Robert Johnson, was an inspiration for a massive mural by artist Devin Liston, which now resides on the side of the iconicGround Zero Blues Club, which is owned by Bill Luckett and his longtime friend,Morgan Freeman. The mural is aptly named Midnight at the Crossroads, and serves as the label art of one of the first Yaupon blends to come out of the Delta Arts District,Delta Chai.
