I know few people who don't have a secret chocoholic side to their personality. I like to say that chocolate is my drug of choice when I want an adrenal rush.
Fortunately in Teeccino, there's just enough cocoa powder to deliver that desirable chocolate flavor, but without noticeable stimulation from Theobromine, chocolate's main stimulant. Caffeine is such a small part of cocoa that it doesn't show up in a cup of Teeccino.
So when you want to indulge that chocolate craving without the calories or the fat, you can safely find refuge in Mocha! By the way, coffee lovers, who are adapting their taste buds to herbal coffee, find that Mocha can make that transition easier. Chocolate makes Teeccino taste ever so familiar. We find that coffee drinkers who say they don’t like any flavors, love both Mocha and Maya Chocolaté.
Really now, who can resist the chocolate temptation?
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, dates, almonds, natural mocha flavor, organic dates, cocoa powder, figs.

"This stuff is awesome!
I am trying to decrease my coffee consumption, and eventually give it up completely. (I only have 1 cup a day, but I know it's not good for me).
So, I bought a bag of this Mocha Herbal Coffee, brewed it this morning with purified water, then added some organic milk, chocolate stevia liquid, a teaspoon of dried coconut milk powder and a tablespoon of organic hot-cocoa mix. Wow ---it was delicious! Can't wait to have this every morning."

"I brew my Teeccino half and half with coffee. This mocha is probably my favorite. It really gives coffee a wonderful, bold taste; regular coffee just doesn't cut it for me anymore, not after having it with Teeccino. Love it!"

"The mocha is out of this world! It's perfect and chocolate but it also leaves you room to play with flavors as well as different milk options. Try it with some palm sugar and coconut milk, you'll never go back :)"

I was looking for a healthier coffee substituteâ€¦one without the caffeine and the acidity. I came across Teeccino and decided to give it a try. Now I doctor it up a bit with a little cream and sugar, but honestly I could not tell much of a difference between the Teeccino and the coffee I have been drinking. If anything it tastes better without the after taste. I can definitely live with this Mocha Herbal Coffee and am anxious to try the other flavors. If you are concerned about your PH and keeping your body alkaline, you do not need all of the acid that comes with regular coffee. Teeccino is an excellent choice if you are looking to break the â€œcoffee habitâ€.

"I ordered a sampler and as I sampled each one, I placed the empty packet aside when I was particularly impressed with that flavor. Well, Mediterranean mocha herbal won hands down. I love this flavor and will continue choosing it over all others. Thanks, Teeccino, for this wonderful coffee substitute!"

"I started drinking Teeccino to reduce my consumption of coffee. I love many of the flavors and the Mocha is at the top of my list.
I'm diabetic and think that switching to Teeccino has helped me get better control of my blood sugar. I started using this herbal coffee with a change in my eating habits and have gotten great results.
I drink my Teeccino (instead of coffee) with almond milk, and after a year of this have seen my A1c blood sugars drop from a high of 14 down to 7.6 as of April 2012.
I will continue to enjoy my Teeccino whenever I want my morning brew or a refreshing summertime ice cold drink.
Thanks for making my healthy lifestyle have more flavor than ever.
Keep Up The Good Work"
