Teeccino Organic Herbal Coffee French Roast -- 11 oz
Not a coffee substitute!
Warning: This product is not a coffee substitute. It is, however, the very best hot herbal drink out there for those, like me, who wish to continue a morning ritual of creating and sipping at a hot cuppa. I made the leap to no caffeine a year ago, and this is the best product I've found for a nice cuppa that's not already sweet by nature of its ingredients. I am not into sweet drinks, so those fruit-flavored herbal teas just don't do it for me, and neither do the minty varieties.
I make this drink the same way I used to make my coffee: put the grounds into a filter and pour hot water through to let it steep. Melitta makes a brown paper tea filter bag, but you have to hunt for it. Alternatively I could use my coffee filter cone. The grounds and the paper filter go into the compost when I'm done.
If you are looking for something to satisfy the need for a nice hot cuppa that's not sweet or fruity from the get-go, this is your nirvana. I love both the French roast and the Maya chocolate varieties, but have to say the French roast has a very deep, deep chocolately note which makes it quite rich and ultimately satisfying to sip. Say hello to the sunrise!

Delicious decaf coffee alternative
I am very pleased to have discovered this herbal coffee. It tastes like a good full bodied roast without the caffeine or acid of regular decaf. My favorite way to drink it is iced with stevia and cream. Yum!!

Love it alone or combined with coffee.
excellent coffee additive or alternative to have less acidity in a hot beverage!!
Even my coffee drinking husband likes our morning coffee when I combine the two. It's robust with a slight nutty type of taste.
Can even add cinnamon or vanilla extract to brew basket for more versatility.
In the evening it's a great hot beverage by itself if wanting a coffee or just a teeccino hot beverage.
So happy there's companies who manufacture and sell healthy alternatives!!

A Delicious Brew
As everyone says, this is not coffee, but the French Roast is probably the closest Teeccino comes to coffee flavor. Not as earthy or bitter as coffee. It has a rich flavor, but more mild than coffee, with a hint of nuts (although it does not contain nuts). I highly recommend it, even to those who can still drink coffee. It is a delightful beverage in its own right.
NOTE: Teeccino is ground very finely and will clog paper filters. I recommend you use a metal cone filter.

Unbelievably delicious superfood!
I can't believe how delicious and satisfying this is. Tastes and feels a bit like a mix of coffee and cacao. Cold dark mornings & nights in Seattle, (where I'm surrounded by some of the most innovative and delicious coffee roasts in the country), and all I want is a big mug of it to keep me company. I drink it straight with cream & honey, sometimes blending it with coffee and/or roasted dandelion root.
Don't underestimate the potent nutrition of the ingredients, either, especially the unheard-of ramon seed. It's a powerful superfood, nourishing and sustaining; can you think of a better way to start your day?
To top it off, my spirit is uplifted by this blend. The historically significant ramon seed is enjoying a resurgence in central and south america, fueling economic growth with a sustainable native crop. And this is the only blend of Teeccino where EVERY ingredient is organic! For the SAME price as the rest! So fabulous.
Buy it. Not necessarily as a coffee alternative, but as a meal supplement and excellent investment in your own health - and the health of the planet.
