When Montezuma was drinking his “Nectar of the Gods”, a brew that combined cocao beans with vanilla, honey, and chiles, he knew what he was doing. Just a bit of heat generated from those chiles will wake up your system with just the right amount of stimulation. It's subtle so it won’t overwhelm your senses, yet it provides a gentle prod with warmth for your digestion and circulation.
Though we can’t guarantee that it will bestow longevity on you like it was reputed to do for the royal Aztec lineage, we can tell you that Montezuma and his Maya neighbors knew how to create exciting flavor that is worthy of the Gods. Roasted coffee and chocolate notes from ramon seeds blended with cacao, vanilla and chile ~ now this is truly an exalted beverage from the New World brought to you courtesy of Teeccino!
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, organic ramon seeds, natural chocolate flavor, organic cocoa, chile flakes.
May contain trace amounts of almonds.

"I really loved my trial packet of Maya Chocolate Teeccino! It was dark and flavorful and not acidic or bitter. I do enjoy my coffee every day, but I could give it up for Teeccino. In fact, if my grocery store carries it, I will!"

"When reading the reviews I was concerned about this flavor being spicy, but I still decided to buy a sample and see for myself. Since I drink my coffee with hot milk, the spicy flavor is kind of hidden. I love its chocolate flavor and I even enjoyed the hot tone to it. Great product!"

"I never thought I'd find anything to replace that deeply satisfying, full-body taste of french roast coffee... I've been drinking it for years now. In an effort to eat more healthfully, I wanted to get caffeine out of my, and my husband's, diet. This Maya Chocolate Herbal Coffee is truly better than coffee. I make it in a french press pot, add hot whipped milk and a dash of cinnamon on top ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€" delish! Bye-bye, caffeine... I won't miss you! :D"

"Been trying to find the perfect substitute for my morning coffee and I just found it. This tea was recommended by a wellness coordinator at the school in which I work. She said in order to drop pounds one thing I needed to do was get rid of the caffeine because it just throws your body out of weightloss mode into stress mode! Well, I have to say after drinking tons of coffee laden with sugary creamers I can honestly say as a former coffee lover, I feel better today than ever! This drink is awesome and I am hooked!"

"this herbal coffee is perfect. i was a die-hard coffee fan but finally realized that caffeine was responsible for making me feel nauseous, headachey, anxious, etc., on a daily basis. i've only had one cup of this, but i'm so glad to be able to use my french press again - and enjoy my coffee ritual without the miserable side effects. perfect with soy creamer, too. can't wait to try the other maya flavors.
p.s. thanks for making samples available! great idea - you won me over. :)"
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.
Roasted barley is a popular coffee alternative in Italy where it is known as "Caffe d'orzo". Every coffee bar in Italy serves orzo brewed like cappuccinos or coffee!
Roasted chicory root is the popular coffee alternative in France. French coffee is famous for its smooth, less acidic flavor because approximately 30% of French coffee is roasted chicory root. Another variety of chicory produces endive...
Teeccino's Maya flavors feature roasted ramon seeds, a nutrient-rich food of the Maya civilization. Ramon seeds are actually the seed of the ramon fruit. Ramon seeds do not contain tree allergens like almonds, walnuts and pecans.
Teeccino selects the highest quality, pure natural flavors that are made from flavoring constituents that are extracted from natural ingredients like fruits, spices, herbs and even coffee.
