Keep in mind that I was an herbal tea designer when I ventured into the realm of designing an herbal coffee. Java was created after listening to coffee drinkers tell me that they wanted a regular flavor with less sweetness and fruitiness than my first attempt at recreating the flavor of pure coffee. Original, now called Orange, with citrus notes from orange peel, was just too different for purist coffee drinkers. It called for a rethink!
I cut down the dates and figs and took out the citrus top notes to deliver a purer coffee flavor with a deeper roasted body, leaving just a hint of sweet. Flavored with a natural coffee flavor that doesn’t have any of the caffeine or acidity of coffee, Java satisfies the coffee drinker who wants a medium roast with just a bit of sweetness. Most people find they don't need to add sugar to Java like they customarily would to regular coffee. However, if you want a purely unsweetened brew, try our dark roasted Maya French Roast.
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, almonds, organic dates, natural coffee flavor, organic figs.

"This was the very first teeccino coffe I tried out of the sampler pack. When I smelled the tee bag before brewing, I was skeptical, but once brewed, and with creme and sweetener, this was delicious! I can definitely see replacing most (or maybe all!)of the coffee I drink with this yummy drink.
Most decaf coffees do not taste good--I've tried. I am grateful for this alternative."

"...and wow! I'm amazed by this product. The flavour just screams coffee. It is delicious and has a much less bitter after taste than regular coffee; even the smell is remarkably similar. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great cup of coffee."

"These are the best idea you've come up with in a long time!! I've been away for awhile so delighted when I came back and saw these handy bags... just what I need!
It's so much easier now to enjoy a cup of Teeccino and I'm passing on the good news to friends.
I was having trouble sleeping and yet needed a little boost in the afternoon, stopped the green tea, went back to Teeccino and I'm sleeping much better so this is a win-win all the way around! Thanks so much!!"

"This is the only non-coffee I will drink it tastes so much like real coffee but without the bad side effects of caffine. Even the tee-bags are great and very convenient to take in my purse so I can enjoy a cup while I'm out with my friends who are coffee drinkers. I Love It!"

Dates and figs slightly sweeten Teeccino's Mediterranean flavors without adding significantly to the calories per serving. Dates and figs contain antioxidants that are water soluble and extract during brewing.
Teeccino's Mediterranean flavors contain golden roasted almonds that create a rich, nutty flavor yet don't add any fat to a cup of Teeccino. Almonds also contain significant quantities of antioxidants including proanthocyanidins (OPCs) and...
