It’s this simple: I love Chai and I love Teeccino. Why not put them together? I’ve created many caffeine-free chais with tea-like bases using rooibos. They’re wonderful, but then comes the moment when you want something richer, darker, more potent.
Who says chai can’t be made with a roasted, robust body brewed like coffee and energized with spices? Add sufficient hot milk and a true chai emerges to confound both tea and coffee drinkers alike. I say rules are made to be transcended and Maya Chai rises above our limitations to merge the best of both worlds.
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, organic ramon seeds, organic cassia, organic ginger, organic cardamom, organic spice flavor, organic vanilla extract.
May contain trace amounts of almonds.

"I like a strong, spicy chai. Blending Maya Chai with black tea or rooibos, sometimes adding more ginger or cardamon, gives me the ultimate chai blend that stands up to milk. On its own, this product has a lot of vanilla and cinnamon cookie flavor, so I think it's improved with more spices."

"When I first opened the bag, the aroma was that of apple pie. That makes perfect sense since apple pie spice is found in chai tea flavoring. I was head over heels for this flavor. I love the robustness of chai and this product didn't disappoint me what so ever. I highly recommend it. It is wonderful to enjoy morning, noon or night. It is so versatile. Enjoy it hot, pour it over ice or ice blended. The possibilities are endless."

"My favourite of your brands. Love the no caffeine and no acid - have health problems which limit my use. I couldn't believe how lucky I was to find your website and obtain your product. I just need that coffee pickup and Teeccino is perfect"

"Love the fresh chai aroma and it makes me feel good to know it's 100% organic! I like the dark french also with it and sometimes I'll add mint leaf or cinnamon stick to it. Teeccino got me off coffee although I still love to smell the aroma. ThanksTeeccino!"

"I love Chai tea, but it always gives me a buzz. So this is perfect. I do lighten it up with another lighter Teeccino flavor because iy can be very strong when brewed separately. No heartburn with this flavor either."

"I love coffee and have had to swear off of it. This drink is a very satisfying substitute.
While this product does not quite taste like coffee, it tastes just as good--it has a very strong taste, very rich and satisfying. When I tried to substitute tea (including herbal teas), I kept just wishing I had coffee. With this product, I'm fully satisfied.
Its taste combines well with cream and sugar."

"I didn't think anything could top Almond Amaretto but think Maya Chai has edged it out. I am not a big chocolate person, but in this case it adds something so perfect to the spiciness of the chai that I don't think the flavor can be improved upon. It's just great. Spouse loves it, too. We are on the site to order MORE."

"My husband and I were looking to replace our caffeine in our diet. After trying several different herbal coffees, we found this Chai Coffee. It's our favorite now! I feel this is better than coffee! I am also gluten intolerant so this has been heaven sent. We love the chai flavor the best! We started drinking this by using the instructions of replacing a portion of our regular coffee with the chai coffee. Now, this has replaced our coffee entirely! You don't have to give up flavor when you give up caffeine. Enjoy! "

"This is definately a very bold flavored chai. It is very spicy, which I love. It also has a strong scent and made my house smell amazing. This is how chai should taste! Tastes great with vanilla soy milk and stevia."

"While I love the other flavors of Teechino like the Original, Mocha, Vanilla Nut, Almond Amaretto.....I absolutely do not like the spices in this blend.
I was really disappointed and it was a waste of good money."

"I love the flavor of this Teeccino, cinnamon without any and a rich dark body. I bought the big bag when my local store stopped carrying it, and it only lasted me two months. Yikes. This nasty Minnesota Winter is just a little more bearable with this wonderful hot beverage helping me through. Thank you."

"I drink this coffee all day. It is a great beverage cold or hot! The blend of all the flavors stay bold even with almond milk. The other plus for me is that a sweetner isn't necessary to enhance the flavor. I love this coffee. "

"I have been curious about Mayan coffee and noticed this in the local specialty shop, so I decided to try it, knowing how much I also love a cold glass of chai. Boy, was I ever surprised! Intense, bold, sophisticated...catchy words, surely, but they describe a cup of this to a Tee (pardon the pun!). I blended a few cups of this with sugar, chocolate almond milk, and some coffee ice cubes. This is definitely a keeper!"

"I always brew Teeccino with my regular coffee - half of each. This chai is just divine. It really gives the coffee a chai flavor, very bold and intense and spicy. It really makes a regular cup of coffee something special."

"I don't particularly like the hot but I steeped it in my alkaline water overnight and used it in the place of plain water for my chocolate smoothies in the morning. It taste very good with an interesting nutty taste. I don't regret ever purchasing any Teeccino product so it's always a win-win! "

"I love coffee but it kills my stomach so I haven't been able to drink it in years. My go to drink has been a chai tea latte since then. This is the best of both worlds! This has now become my every morning drink. I absolutely love it!"

"I recently switched to teeccino after having stomach problems, which was partly thanks to the acidity of my daily coffee. I got the sample pack of tee-bags and the Maya Chai was my absolute favorite! It does not taste any differently from my delicious morning coffee (if not better, actually!) and no stomach pain or caffeine side effects afterwards! Highly recommended!"

"I love chai, this is chai. As chai goes, this one is not real spicy. All chai is spicy, but this one is on the smoother side. It is still bold and rich. Probably my favorite, definitely my favorite non caffeine chai. I have an Indian friend that runs an Indian restaurant, I've had the real thing, this rivals that. IMHO if you don't like this, you don't like chai."

"I love coffee and I love chai tea so I thought this would be the perfect combination.
It was good but, personally, I would have liked more chai flavor.
I would recommend trying the Maya Chai Herbal Coffee.
I hope to find some in a store near me to buy."
Carob pods are highly nutritious and contain a variety of antioxidants known as flavonoids. Carob shares flavonoids in common with tea that have been studied to be highly effective in humans for protecting cells against free radical damage.
