I couldn't believe it didn't contain coffee

Coffee makes me jittery but I love the flavor. Decaf, meh. Herbal tea, too flowery. Chai tea did the trick for awhile but I tired of the cinnamony flavor and yearned for more of a coffee taste with a spicy kick from my hot drink. Wandering up and down the aisles of our local health food store; I spotted a selection of Teeccino Chicory Herbal Teas. After reading the boxes - stating organic dark roast with coffee notes - I thought, why not give it a try? I bought two boxes: French Roast and Chocolate (couldn't pass up that flavor). When steeping my first tea bag of FR, I was pleasantly surprised at the ample amount. Not a wimpy supply. After the first sip, I reread the ingredients. I couldn't believe it was herbal and contained no coffee bean. Rich, aromatic, and substantial. I returned to the store the next day and bought a bag in bulk. Now in late afternoons, a chocolate tea bag serves for my end of the work day reward - dessert without the calories. It is savory and packs a subtle nudge from the hint of chiles. Every day, mornings and early evenings, I look forward to cradling my mugs of Teeccino tea.
