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.

"My son gave me a bag of Mediterranean Mocha. I was pleasantly surprised how well I liked the flavor. I have a cup every afternoon instead of my usual caffeine cup of coffee. It reminds me of Kahlua and cream coffee I usually have when in Mexico. "

"This was my first exposure to Teeccino as a coffee substitute, I found the flavor to be a little mild but increasing the steeping time helps a lot. I used to do Tim Robbins dark roast double doubles. Now I get the flavor, but I miss the caffeine, but that is why I switched to Teeccino in the first place. I find that Teeccino satisfies my requirement for a hot soothing beverage to drink, without the negative aspects of caffeine. Now I can have a good drink even after noon, without it keeping me awake all night."

"I just purchased my first bag. My husband needed to get off coffee (irregular heart beat) and we wanted a substitute. We tried some other brands, but found Teeccino in Sprouts. We use an expresso press and unsweet soy milk. I was surprised that I needed NO extra sugar. That will be a plus for health reasons too. I'm planning to give up coffee for this brand. "

"Because I am trying to lower the acidity in my body, I decided to try the Teecino and it was wonderful. It tastes so much like regular coffee, but a much better taste and not bitter. I bought the mocha and thought it was a great selection for me. I am ordering another bag and trying someof the samplers as well."

"I am only too happy to write a review of Teeccino which taste as good as coffee even better for me... I love the Mocha brand too because it not only taste exactly like coffee but you get a silky cocoa flavor but not too much... Just enough to be delicious... My husband and I have switched over to Teeccino and have given up caffeine... We are so thankful to the founder of this product... We only hope we can always buy teeccino so we are never forced to go back to coffee... If you are thinking of quitting coffee have nor fear... Once you taste Teeccino, you'll be hooked like we were..."

"The Teeccino brand herbal coffee has been a miracle in my life... I have GERD and Peptic Ulcers... I had to give up coffee including decaf and decaf tea... I haven't tasted anything that comes close to the taste of coffee except Teeccino. It's so delicious and has a wonderful rich flavor... Now both myself and my husband has switched full time to Teeccino for our coffee fix... Thank you for developing something so wonderful for people like us... Please never stop making it... My favorite is Mocha and Vanilla Nut... I can't wait to try the other flavors... "

"I served Mocha Teeccino instead of coffee at a family reunion last week. We have a lot of folks with food allergies and Mocha was the universal favorite when I sent out samplers last holiday season. In addition to fun and memories my family regularly shares health "secrets" - this one was most welcome! The rich and subtle flavor and aroma of mocha goes exceptionally well with gluten free birthday cake, energizing without interfering with sleep."

"I love, love, love my mocha. I finally weaned myself off the coffee cold turkey and believe me I could tell the difference right away on how I feel. My stomach does not gurgle anymore. The caffeine in the coffee felt like it was eating my stomach away. I don't have that problem anymore. Thanks Teeccino!"
By: Shannon from San Diego, CA US on January 23, 2016
"I've been drinking coffee for years, but now that I'm in my 40's - I've noticed more dehydration and stomach issues. I purchased a bag of the mocha flavor on a whim and WOW! It's delicious! My body feels really good. I'm a bit obsessed - thinking I need to try all of the flavors. "
By: TseTse from Springdale, AR US on November 18, 2015
"After finishing a 5lb bag of Hazelnut & I turned to Mocha and it has become my preference. Tastes more like real coffee and occasionally I do long for the taste of the original coffee. However Teeccino is a wonderful alternative - NO CAFFEINE to eat away at your bones :) . For now, Mocha & Vanilla Nut are my favorites. They are smooth & as I said before Mocha tastes like the real McCoy."

"I bought this at Whole Foods for a reasonable price and I used it in my expresso maker and just made a couple expresso shots out of it. I also mixed it in with some Soy Vanilla Milk and honestly it tastes very decent. I could see myself drinking this again and again and knowing that it's made out of healthy ingredients makes me feel safer. :) "
By: Ellen from Front Royal, VA US on May 11, 2015
"I purchased this because I have become allergic to caffeine and I missed coffee terribly. This is a great substitute when you are craving a hot drink that drinks like coffee. It is perfect for cold winter mornings. I have a reusable K cup for the single brew coffee maker at work and this grind works well with it. The mocha flavor is my favorite of all the Teeccino flavors. I will be trying it iced this spring and I know it will be great. "
By: Mackenzie from Wilmington , DE US on November 23, 2014
"I really liked this product, and I'm really happy that there is a great substitute on the market for coffee! The taste is not exactly like coffee, so don't expect it to be, but it has a very rich flavor just like coffee. I would recommend using a smaller amount of teeccino when brewing than they suggest, as it is so rich. "
By: Lois from Langhorne, PA US on February 5, 2014
"I was looking for a natural alternative to coffee so I tried the sampler pack after researching the products. So far the hazelnut and mocha are my favorites. This surprised me as I do not usually like flavored hot beverages. I think the difference is because the flavorings are all natural. I really look forward to my Teeccino afternoon breaks. I even feel like I have more energy!! Raving about Teeccino to all my friends and even sent a sampler pack to my sister-in-law, who also loved it. "

"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"

"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!"
By: Larry Jeffords from Beckley, WV on February 15, 2011
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€.
By: Karen Beth from Corinth, Mississippi on July 23, 2010
"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!"
By: Coffee-Lover from Murray/Ky on July 7, 2010
"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."
By: Corri from St Helens, OR on June 18, 2010
"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 delicious way to lower the caffeine level of my morning coffee intake. This fit the bill. I have a delicate pallet that craves mellow chocolaty tones. So I mix my regular medium roast Columbian 50/50 with this. Voila! Delicious morning beverage that let's me drink all I need without the jitters."
By: OrganicChocoholic from FRESNO, CA US on September 15, 2017
"Got a small bag of this at my local Sprout's store. I mix my own gourmet coffee's for the Keurig and this makes an absolutely wonderful addition to my organic Guatemalan coffee and only half the caffeine. Happy to have found the 5lb bag, will save me considerable amount of money over time. I strongly recommend this to any Mocha lover looking for a mellow morning cup. "
By: Happy Customer from Novi, MI US on August 10, 2017
"Love the mocha, that's why I keep coming back to it. It's too bad one customer gave it such a low score based on the difficulty of getting it some times due to out-of-stock status. I've run into that problem too, but I guess that shows just how popular this item is. "
By: email@example.com from Helena, MT US on April 21, 2017
"I LOVE the rich chocolate flavor in this mocha teccino! I have been mixing it with my regular coffee for years. It doesn't have any of the chemical taste I sometimes get from a decaf coffee and my daughter can safely enjoy hers too! I order these in bulk once a year. Watch for the discounts. "
By: Dutchess from Dunedin, FL US on February 1, 2017
"My husband and I love Teecchino and have been drinking it since we first found it on the store shelves in the early 1990's. We have introduced many friends to Teecchino over the years! Since we like to stay away from coffee, this is the perfect alternative for us and MOCHA is our all-time absolute favorite flavor. Mocha mixes great with any type of coffee if you prefer to add some caffeine, but to us it tastes even better on its own. We make it in our coffee press. Highly recommended!"
By: TeeccinoDrinker from Pittsburgh, PA US on July 22, 2016
"I love the taste of Teeccino, but I also love coffee, so I mix the two most mornings and then switch to Teeccino only for the afternoon.
I buy the #5 bag and switch sometimes between the Mocha and the Hazelnut. Both very delicious.
Try the different flavors!"
By: Kelly from Grand Prairie, TX US on August 17, 2015
"I absolutely love Teecino herbal coffee, and this is probably my favorite flavor of them all. I also really like Vanilla Nut and Hazelnut! After first trying this, I went right away and ordered a big size of this flavor. It's delicious and nutritious!! "
By: Jules from Irvine, CA US on April 24, 2014
"Love the mocha. Sometimes have it alone or will mix 1/3 coffee and 2/3 mocha. Add half and half and I am ready to take on the day. Store ran out of 1 lb. bags but now buy 5 lb. bag directly. Keeps nice and fresh in the frig. Wonderful product."
By: A fan from Vicksburg, MI US on February 23, 2014
"I prefer tea but when drinking coffee I need low acid and caffeine free. The Mocha teeccino is perfect! A smooth coffee flavor with a hint of mocha flavoring - not too over powering. Flavor still comes through after adding some milk or cream."
By: Bonniel from Merced, CA US on January 14, 2014
"What's not to like about Mocha? This flavor is a tried and true favorite. I also use it to make Teeccino truffles which are amazing. The recipe might be on the website somewhere. Always wonderful, a hot steaming cup of Mocha and the best thing is, you can drink it at night and not be kept awake. Highly recommended."

"The Mocha Herbal Coffee Tee-Bags are convenient.
I usually use two with 14 oz. of very hot water and I add approximately 1/8 cup of milk with 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar. I just use it as a side drink. It is pretty good."
By: Mary from New York on July 9, 2012
"I tried the Mocha flavored coffee along with other flavors and I love them all! The Mocha is the closest thing to coffee without it being actually coffee. I am a big time coffee drinker and I think Teccino is a great substitute and I can drink it all day without worrying about the caffiene. I add a little bit of sugar and creamer just like coffee and it tastes great!! "
By: PJ from Eugene, Oregon on July 5, 2012
"I ordered several different flavors of Teeccino Herbal Coffee. The sample sizes were a wonderful way to compare several of the flavors and find my personal favorite. Mine is mocha! It isn't bitter like coffee, so I am able to enjoy it without added sweetener, I recommend this product. "
By: Kim Hopkins from Los Angeles on April 24, 2012

"Suffering from Acid reflux, I missed anything chocolate. I was over the moon to find this wonderful coffee! I can have my chocolate fix and coffee also, since coffee is a no-no also with acid reflux. This coffee has given me back something I thought I would have to go a lifetime without! Thank You so much!

"Hi. I have several 11 oz bags of stuff that get used mostly 100% for afternoon drinks that use to be coffee. It also allows the same for after dinner that was always a risk for me w/ coffee after say 6 pm and sleeping. I went for the 5 lb bag of Mocha because it adds a richness to morning coffee that is 5 parts 50/50 caf/decaf coffer and 1 part teeccino. If they have it in 5 lb bags, I am going to do the vanilla nut next.
By: Julie from Atlanta, Georgia on February 22, 2012
"Yes, I drink Mocha Teeccino everyday and run wild in all the stores in Atlanta buying out the small bags when a friend suggested buying in bulk. Duh!
So, now it costs about the same as I have to pay for shipping, but I don't go crazy buying out all the bags and never run out of Mocha Teeccino.
I am a happy girl :-) "

"I love tea and I love Teeccino's Herbal Coffee Tee-Bags. They are so convienent for me to carry in my tote whenever I want a cup. The flavor is awesome! It taste like I am drinking real coffee without all the stuff. Teeccino offers me a healthier alternative and a positive way to keep my natural flora on track. I have introduced Teeccino to family and friends. I will always drink Teeccino! Thanks Teeccino people!"
By: Tara from Knoxville, TN on April 25, 2011
"I have tried many things to cut down the calories of my coffee and improve its "healthy factor". Teeccino has been the perfect stepping stone to do both. Brewing Teeccino mixed with regular coffee has allowed me to eliminate the sugar and creamer I used to need, reduce my caffeine intake, and just feel good about my morning cup. Someday I'll be off the coffee altogether and only drinking Teeccino. Thank you for a great product in all its wonderful flavors!"
By: Lisa from Bluff Point, NY on November 24, 2010
"i have used several other Teeccino flavors, and find this my current favorite, hence ordering 10 Lbs of it!
Like other testimonials i have read i find i am not missing caffeine. I sometime blend in coffee with my Teeccino, but to have it alone is a rare thing. My energy is much more level throughout the day, i don't feel tired when i go so bed, and still fall asleep so much faster than in the old days of coffee in the afternoon to keep going.
Thanks for you great product."
