Notes:

I do not know for certain but I think this is a Yaupon variety and did not want to make a tea out of it until I know for sure. This plant appeared in a few locations in my garden and is very pretty in winter with its abundance of red berries!

    I was prepared to affirm your ID and to disagree with Laura…but I was wrong. The berries are very much like an ardesia…clusters of several berries standing off from the stem.

    OTOH yaupon berries are all individually attached to a twig.

    I can’t see the plant fruits but these leaves look like a species in the Ardisia genus (coralberry)? This might be A. crenata, common names include Christmas berry, hen’s-eyes, Australian berry, coral ardisia, etc… Copy and paste to view images of this species and see if you have a match, click on images to enlarge. The blue tab on the right ‘ View All Images at Invasive.org ‘ will provide extra photos. Best wishes!
