Since her reactions to coffee and creamer are worsening, my mother has finally relented in trying alternatives. I figured the caffeine rich yerba would be a good start. I can’t rate this quite yet as I don’t think I steeped it right. I used four table spoons in a two cup French press and forgot about it for twenty minutes. It came out with far too strong an aftertaste. I timed the second cup better and was surprised. Despite the dark color and list of toasty ingredients this tastes mostly like green yerba and a cacophony of extras. I’m going to give this blend a few more tries before I give up.

And the maternal unit’s reaction? “It’s okay. Too green. It needs creamer, though.”
Oh well. One problem at a time.

People trying to switch from coffee to tea usually like nutty flavored black teas. I think it reminds them most of coffee. Maybe vanilla flavored blacks are ok as well. There’s also the caffeine free chicory root. Or perhaps some chai. All those are good with creamer. :)

I have a friend who adds skim milk to EVERY tea, even delicate whites or greens. I don’t understand.
