As you all know, I’ve been weaning myself from my horrible caffeine addiction. It’s been tough, I won’t lie. I’ve had the headaches, the irritability, and, most of all, horrible horrible sleepiness. Thankfully, the headaches and most of the irritability is gone but I’m still battling the yawns. I’m pushing through it.
The next morning, I tried the Java flavor in my French Press. It smelled wonderful and, even before steeping, turned a beautiful, rich, dark color, just as regular coffee should be. The Java flavor has natural coffee flavoring in it so, naturally, it tastes more like real coffee. In addition to the natural coffee flavoring, it has roasted carob, barley, chicory root, almonds, figs and dates. For those of you raising an eye at this, let me tell you, it is good. While it does not taste exactly like coffee, it definitely has a coffee feel to it and satisfies that coffee craving.
And it is healthy too. One cup of Teeccino is:
- Naturally caffeine-free – no processing, no chemical residue
- High in heart-healthy potassium and soluble fiber
- Natural energy boost – from nutrients, not stimulants
- Alkaline – helps reduce acidity and restore alkaline balance
- Rich in inulin, a soluble fiber in chicory root, that helps improve
digestion and elimination plus increases the absorption of calcium and minerals
Yesterday morning, I tried the Original flavor. Well, I can’t say that I liked it as well and wouldn’t really recommend it. It is lacking the natural coffee flavoring and doesn’t taste nearly as much like coffee as the Java flavor does.
But the Java flavor? I will continue drinking it, even after my yawns stop, which I’m hoping will be soon. I’ve wanted to be caffeine-free for a long time and now, with a very good substitute, I think I can be. Thanks, Jody!
