It’s no mocha – or Mayan chocolate truffle – not even close. But it is a great coffee alternative. My only complaint is that the chocolate flavor isn’t a little stronger to make it really stand out from the original Teeccino.
49 Tasting Notes
A good coffee alternative – the vanilla flavor is not too strong like some of the other Teeccino flavors – in fact it is quite mild.
This is a good alternative if you like flavored coffees. The cloying hazelnut flavor is a little overwhelming for me – but it doesn’t render the cup undrinkable – I just know that I have to pair it with the proper cookie :)
It’s not coffee. If the caffeine or acidity of coffee bothers your stomach, then you should try Teeccino. It tastes like mediocre coffee and gives you that warm feeling like drinking a cup of coffee gives you. It’s a nice alternative if you were told you shouldn’t drink coffee anymore.
If you like pu-erh, stay very far away from this tea.
Berry tea that is tart. I don’t think it is overwhelming blueberry, but it clearly more blueberry than a berry zinger tea.
This tea is not too fruity and not too rooibossy – it’s very smooth and well blended so that not one flavor stands out.

I didn’t know what to think when I was given this tea – the name didn’t tell me much, and the description does not sound appealing to me.
Lo and behold, I made myself a cup this morning and I actually really like it. The peppermint notes are very low, almost non-existant. There are floral notes, but they are not cloying like your average jasmine tea. It’s just a very smooth green tea, with a little more flavors to make it unique.
This is not a terribly fruity tea – I expected a little more. I think the rooibos overpowers the fruit a little. I’m going to have a second cup to see if my perceptions change.
I really like this tea. The chocolate has a nice cocao flavor and the peppermint is not too strong. And it makes you feel like you’re getting a treat without all the calories of a heavy dessert!
Of all the chocolate teas out there, Republic of Tea is my current favorite. The chocolate flavor is more cocao than sweet. And the strawberry flavor in this tea is not overpowering or annoyingly artificial. This will never replace a chocolate dripped strawberry or a cup of hot cocoa, but it is a viable alternative if you don’t want something heavy & rich.

I actually like this tea – although I have to agree, now that you say it, it does taste a little like a cherry cough drop… but without the sweetness or the coying tartness.
I love this tea for an upset stomach. The flavors of the seeds are nicely balanced so they blend together well.
This is one of my favorite berry teas. It is fruity and tart.
I think the other comments say it best when they say it reminds them of fruity gum. I like pu-erh tea, and I like fruity tea. This tea is a bad combination of both, coming across as artificial fruit flavor (and aroma) that would make the makers of Bubble Yum envious.
I’m a huge pu-erh fan and collector. I like this tea as a simple, easy to drink, easy to make, everyday shou pu-erh.
I’m a huge pu-erh fan, as well as a “chocolate tea” fan. This is neither.
One of my all time favorite teas, especially when mixed with Good Earth Superfruit (aka a strong berry tea). I drink this tea hot & iced.
I received just one bag of the tea and it doesn’t have an ingredients list on it. I’m guessing it is flavored black tea from the looks of it – and of course the taste of it (not to mention, on the website I found it states that it is from Sri Lanka)… Not a fan of it.
I love this tea. It reminds me of toasted marshmallows!
All I can remember is that I wanted more flavor… I only had 1 bag, so I will need to wait until I get more to try it again.
