My favorite coffee replacement

    I initially started drinking this tea to replace my morning cup of coffee. As a replacement I was looking for something with as much caffine but something that would be tasty enough so that I would have to add as little sugar as possible. I have been drinking this for months (no added sweeteners) and I love it. It smells delicious and tastes amazing.

    Tastes like a walk in the woods...

    The mate and assam teas are very distinguishable yet also harmonize creating a very wood/earth flavor. The combination reminds me of wet leaves and smoked twigs and papery tree bark with the notes of vanilla and cocoa rounding it all out. I'd say the vanilla is more prominent on my palate than the cocoa which seems more to blend into the background.

    I find this tea very pleasant. I didnt like it at first, I was so enamoured by the aroma and I was a little disappointed. But the flavor has grown on me quickly and i now enjoy this tea as the perfect start to a chilly morning.

    I use 2tsp of this tea per cup and steep for 6 minutes. I am not a fan of sugar in my beverages so i drink this tea black. I think this would companion well with my Maharaja Chia tea and am excited to try the two together.

          I really enjoy this tea anytime. I prefer it hot rather than iced. People who give it a low rating because it doesn't taste just like coffee have missed the point. It's not supposed to taste just like coffee. It's a unique tea.

          I'll try any mate, and have found they all take some getting used to. This is the first one that I didn't take to, and that was after eight ounces. I can taste the assam tea, but not the mate. Or the chocolate, for that matter. I honestly wanted to like this tea; it sounded like it was right up my alley. Sadly, this was not the case. I'll stick with the other mates.

            Breaking free from a coffee addiction, a Teavana employee recommended this to me years ago and I've loved it ever since. My perfect cup of tea for most mornings.

              I usually only drink Spanish espresso coffee (2 cups min), but I've been looking for a variety that will energize me with a flavor burst like my espresso. JavaVana is it! It is my chocolate fix, my pick me up, and the smell is like "floating on a cloud mini-vacation". I love this tea and have added it to my weekly routine. :-D

                Love to take this tea as my mid-morning picker upper, taste coffee-chocolaty-ish and just enough to keep you going.

                Pros

                • Coffee Substitute
                • Energizing
                • Soothing

                  Best Uses

                  • After Meals
                  • Dessert Tea

                  I had never tried a chocolaty-tasting tea before and was a little nervous about it since I am a avid chocolate lover. I drank a cup after lunch and immediately brewed more. It's satisfies my chocolate craving and is a great substitute for dessert. I also love my coffee but do not drink much of it anymore as it sometimes bothers my stomach, so this tea is also a good coffee replacement.

                  Love it! Will be keeping this in stock.
