Three Coffee-Like Tea Options
One option you may wish to try is an Organic Assam tea. Look for a blend that includes black teas from India, Sri Lanka and China. A good Assam tea blend often has a rounder taste profile than an English or Irish Breakfast blend. An Assam tea would be a good option to start your day, with about 45 mg of caffeine per cup compared to the typical 145 mg of caffeine in a cup of coffee. Assam tea takes milk and makes a tasty latte.Organic Golden Green Tea
Organic Hojicha Tea
Organic Hojicha is a bit of an outlier tea that has similar taste characteristics as coffee, on about a quarter of the caffeine. Hojicha is a Japanese green tea that during processing the leaves are roasted to a dark brown. The resulting tea offers taste notes of coffee, chestnut and caramel. Hojicha has a flavour that mimics a blonde coffee and makes an amazing cold brew or iced tea.
While no one expects you to give up coffee altogether, these teas are great substitutes for a coffee now and again. Each offers a unique taste that is just as satisfying as coffee. And caffeine from tea reacts differently in the body than caffeine from coffee. Caffeine from tea offers a longer period of focus and leaves the body gradually. All the taste without the coffee spikes and crashes!
