drank Chaga Ashwagandha by Teeccino

Not a sip down, but a tea for mulligan day.
I found a few flavors of teeccino carob chicory teas on sale, and picked up three different boxes as I’m looking to drink more chicory to help my digestion. This one has added chaga mushrooms, which I have tried before in a DT blend, and ashwagandha, which I’ve never known to have a calming effect. I did enjoy the other two flavors I picked up, but this one, hmmm, not so much. It does have a nice chocolatey flavor, brews up thick when only 6 oz of water is used, but does have a chalky aftertaste. Not one I’d buy again, even for chicory in a nice travel friendly packet.

Flavors: Bitter, Creamy, Dark Chocolate

Well, hello again, Steepster! It’s been a while. Have not been drinking any new teas lately; mostly been sticking with my good ol’ PG Tips and milk.

However, I have really been digging this mushroom herbal blend by Teeccino. Notes of earth, umami, chocolate, toast, nuttiness, and a hint of sweet creamy butterscotch. It takes milk really well, just like PG Tips, or even coffee. Creamy mouthfeel.

It’s a nice, warm, healthful, non-pumpkin spice, autumn-esque drink, and it satisfies the 2:00 “need another cuppa” craving without the extra dosage of caffeine.

Flavors: Butterscotch, Dark Chocolate, Mushrooms, Nutty, Toasty, Umami, Wet Earth

a) Always glad to see a fellow member of the PG Tips Fan Club. Sweater weather arrived bang on time this morning, and I had a bag of Extra Strong with milk. Perfect.
b) I’m a recent discoverer of Teeccino and have loved both of the varieties I’ve tried. Will have to see if I can find this one locally!

Ooh I haven’t seen this one before! I’ll have to look online because it sounds amazing!

drank French Roast by Teeccino
2442 tasting notes

Earlier in the year, I snagged a box of Teeccino’s Dark Chocolate on an insane clearance sale and immediately fell in love with the just-like-eating-a-candy-bar thick chocolate goodness.

So, with a lucky-day $2 coupon from Natural Grocers, I decided to give a (cheap) trial run to their French Roast blend.

I am amazed—its color and texture remind me of the dark, stewed coffee my dad drank when he worked at the local post office when I was little. (He’d give me little sips just to watch me scrunch up my face.) I’ve never tasted a coffee-ier tea, and it’s decaf at that. This will be just lovely in a few weeks when there’s an honest-to-pete nip in the air.

I can smell it just from reading this. I hear the radio in my parent’s kitchen.

I love Teeccino, the teabsg versions are also nice.

drank Dark Chocolate by Teeccino
2442 tasting notes

Every time I drink and review a chocolate tea, I bellyache that it isn’t chocolate enough. Well, the Hershey bar stops here. Wow. Thick, rich carob and chicory—this definitely hits the “unsweet chocolate bar” mark. I’m drinking this unsweetened, and there’s enough coffee-like bitterness to open my eyes a little, even though it’s purely herbal. With a little milk or as a latte, this is going to be just flat delicious.

Mmmmmmmmmm…..

I didn’t even realize they offered this flavor!

April Sipdown Alphabet Challenge: “D” Tea
This was probably my least favorite tea that came in the sampler. It just wasn’t the best herbal chai I’ve had.

I liked one of the other teas from this brand in the past so I bought a Dandelion tea bag sampler to try the rest of the flavors. This company makes coffee substitutes and is essentially an herbal coffee alternative. I made this one today and added a little oat milk to it. The spices in this tea are very weak and the sweetness overpowers them. I think this is my least favorite of the variety pack that I’ve tried so far. I would much rather drink a regular caffeinated chai or a good rooibos chai. This tea is very sweet from the dates and blackberry leaf in it. I think you could definitely find something better at a lower price. (I did enjoy the Tumeric and Caramel Nut ones I’ve tried so far though)

Decidedly not Teeccino’s best offering. This is supposed to have a hint of heat in it from spices, but this is my second cup of it, and I get no spice whatsoever. Like, quite literally none. It just tastes like weak hot chocolate with a tiny note of dates. It doesn’t even have that satisfying, full-bodied, roasted, mock-coffee quality that I’ve come to love in this company’s blends.
Pretty disappointed. Maybe I can salvage the last two servings I have of it by adding some hot cocoa powder and milk.

drank Dark Chocolate by Teeccino
722 tasting notes

Ughhhhh, so yummy! It smells like chocolate-covered raisins. Reminds me of going to the candy store as a kid. Slightly bitter, black coffee note on the sip, which transitions seamlessly into a very mellow, very genuine chocolate flavor, just like hot cocoa without the sugar. Stands up well to milk. I love this stuff.

drank Lion's Mane Rhodiola by Teeccino
722 tasting notes

Lovely, perfume-y, full of umami and earthy. Warm. Satisfies my desire for a second cup of coffee without actually being coffee. No acidity and no caffeine. I rely on coffee for survival, but tea is truly the magical side of things.

Today is Ash Wednesday, so for us Catholics, that means it’s a day of fasting and abstention. Drinking this to warm myself up and boost my mood so that I can more fully embrace and embody the spirit of Lent.

I choose to live in the American Northeast, so I have zero right to complain about the winter weather, especially with the amount of cold weather-related suffering that’s occurring in the American Deep South, where they didn’t choose to deal with snow and ice (and indeed are not equipped for it), but… it’s just the truth that it’s bloody freezing out today and everything is coated with glare ice. The wind doesn’t help.

I donated to the Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts in the hopes that the money will go toward helping my fellow Americans in Texas and other impacted states. If any of my Steepster friends live in those areas, know that I am sending warm wishes, prayers, and happy thoughts your way!

Flavors: Earth, Fig, Floral, Perfume, Roasted, Rose, Umami, Wet Wood

Your acts of kindness are making me smile this morning! One of our local stores has started to carry a Teeccino flavor or two. I am going to have to take a closer look.

Can’t recommend this brand enough!

Definitely need to watch this close and be careful not to oversteep it. The rose can become overpowering VERY quickly. But when it’s steeped right, it’s very tasty, especially with some milk. Does NOT need sweetener.
Notes: Perfumey, floral, sweet, roasted, nutty, and woodsy.
There are supposed to be a whole bunch of health benefits from consuming Lion’s Mane mushrooms, so there’s that, too.

Flavors: Dates, Fig, Floral, Nutty, Perfume, Roasted, Roasted Barley, Rose, Sweet, Wet wood

Completely in love. Just like hot chocolate, without all the sugar. Delicious with a splash of 1% dairy milk. I don’t know how Teeccino does it, but they are magical.

I smell something faintly and pleasantly floral in the liquor. I’m thinking it’s the astragalus.
Dominant flavor notes in the sip are earth and roasted nuts/ barley.
It’s not too sweet, despite the figs and dates, which is fine with me.
I added a bit of milk to it.
I taste maple very slightly in the aftertaste.
It’s kind of a delicate cuppa, and not overly flavorful.
I don’t think I’d buy it again, but it’s definitely drinkable.

These are a little kooky, perhaps…. herbal/ mushroom tea that tastes like coffee?
When I tore open the packet, I inhaled the dry leaf and got a whiff of cinnamon, but there was an earthy, umami quality to it that reminded me of tomato sauce, almost. Is that weird?
It steeped a delicious orangey-red color, and I got notes of cinnamon, earth, and herbal bitters. It DOES taste a lot like cinnamon coffee, and it holds up to milk quite well. People who like pu-erh would enjoy this one as a caffeine-free option.

drank Hazelnut by Teeccino
6 tasting notes

So if you really like coffee, this is a tea for you! That said, it may not taste like the best coffee — once I brewed mine up and added a bit of cream and sweetener, it tasted exactly like the cappuccinos from the cappuccino machine in my junior high cafeteria. That worked for me, but it may or may not work for you. Pulled this out of a Sipsby box.

Flavors: Coffee, Hazelnut

Didn’t care for this one at all. It tasted like hot sweet spice water. I barely tasted the base.
This one and the Red Chai blend were my least favorites in the whole sampler pack.

drank Dandelion Coconut by Teeccino
722 tasting notes

In this sampler pack, this one was fair-to-middling. It’s good if you like coconut, and the coconut flavor works well with the roasted dandelion and chicory base, because toasted coconut is a thing. Not as good as the Caramel Nut and Dark Roast blends, and not something I’d be in the mood for every day… but again, as with the Mocha Mint blend, I’m not unhappy that I got to try it.

Flavors: Coconut, Dandelion, Nutty, Roasted

Meh.
Tastes like a standard rooibos chai. Nothing special. Drinkable, certainly, but not really memorable. Kind of reminds me of the Oregon Chai Rooibos blend.

drank Dandelion Dark Roast by Teeccino

Absolute perfection for anyone looking to reduce or eliminate coffee from their diet! Will definitely be purchasing a whole box of this flavor. The experience is a lot like having coffee. It smells like freshly-brewed drip coffee and has a similar mouthfeel. Has the roasted bean-y bite that you want in a cup of black coffee, but no caffeine and no acidity. I personally did not add any milk or sweetener to it, but you totally could if you want to and the brew would hold up to it like coffee.

Flavors: Coffee, Dark Bittersweet, Nutty, Roasted, Toasty

Ever logged into your work computer on Monday morning and realized that you’re simply not emotionally ready to launch your interoffice IM app and email client? That me today. Wish me luck.

Caffeine will only increase my stress levels and further diminish my fool-tolerating threshold, so this is what’s on tap today. Good with a splash of milk. Good for the stomach. Good for the liver. Just good all around.

I know the feeling. Best of luck with the workday!

Tomorrow is my first day back after a weeklong staycation. Such a feel.

This is one of my favorite flavors of the Teeccino tea bags.

Discovering Teeccino has been one of the best parts of 2020 for me. Simple pleasures like a warm cuppa are sometimes what carries me through the week. I’ve raved about this particular blend/ flavor on here before, but I just wanted to add that this is an excellent autumn drink. I want to experiment with making it as a latte.

Easily my favorite from the dandelion blend sampler pack I got. Just so, so, so good. The sweetness/ burnt sugar notes from the caramel complements the burnt, roasted note from the dandelion root, and the extra nutty flavoring enhances everything as well. Smells heavenly and feels like having a second cup of coffee, but without the caffeine or the acid.

Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Caramel, Coffee, Dandelion, Nutty, Roasted, Roasted Nuts, Sweet, Toasty

You’re talking up the dandelions so much I may have to search some of this out!

teaqueen

Haha! I’ve been looking for caffeine free coffee alternatives to help manage my sleep and stress levels during quarantine. Teeccino is a pretty solid company to look into! Lots of great flavors. And they sell their products on Amazon with Prime shipping, so they’re convenient and safe.

drank Dandelion Mocha Mint by Teeccino
722 tasting notes

Pretty good! Perfect, barest hint of sweetness from the dates rounds it out a little and makes up for the fact that the roasted flavor of the dandelion root and chicory doesn’t pair perfectly with mint. Wouldn’t buy a full box of just this flavor, but definitely not unhappy about having it in the sampler pack.
