I had a meeting on Saturday morning with a client of mine (Just Breathe Wellness) and he asked if I wanted some coffee. I said yes and he pulls out his french press and Teeccino. A sort of herbal coffee. Has anyone tried this stuff? It’s not bad! In fact, I can imagine enjoying this if I wanted to cut back on caffeine for some reason (I don’t at the moment). Here’s the description of the product from the Teeccino web site. Teeccino is the best selling coffee substitute in America. Though we prefer the term “herbal coffee” (No one calls herbal tea a “tea substitute”, now do they?), we anticipate the day when herbal coffee brings as many people health and enjoyment as herbal tea does today. Herbal coffee is brewed from herbs that have been roasted and ground to brew and taste like coffee. Most people are aware that there is no “milk” in soy milk, and there is no “burger” in a veggie burger. However, many people don’t remember that there is no “tea” in herbal tea. Tea always used to refer to Camelia sinensis, the plant that has been grown for centuries to produce black tea. But now we have green tea, red tea, white tea, and herbal tea. The term “tea” has become a generic term for leaves, bark, flowers, roots and spices that are brewed in hot water like true tea. We hope that one day people will also understand “herbal coffee” as easily as they now understand soy milk! What’s amazing is that you can brew it just like normal coffee or even run it through an espresso machine. Instructions are on the Teeccino web site. You can buy it at Trader Joe’s, Wild Oats, Whole Foods, or online at Amazon. Why anybody would want to quit coffee is beyond me, but it is an interesting product and I bet it grows in popularity.
