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.

"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 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 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 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."

"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."

"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."
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.
