I quit coffee a few weeks ago and really wanted to like this drink. For people in the same boat, consider yourself warned that this beverage is NOTHING like coffee.
As to its merits as a distinct drink, I’d have to say I’m still not a fan. It’s bitter like the previous reviewer has pointed out, but this bitterness is not (in my experience) alleviated by stevia. While I’m usually a great fan of mint, this drink has a spoiled aftertaste which lingers on the tongue and is interlaced with nutty undertones. There’s not the slightest hint of chocolate, which is a shame because raw cocoa powder would be less bitter than this concoction.
If the taste were slightly more obnoxious, I’d say it was medicinal, but as it stands, it might be possible to disguise the poor flavors using cream or sugar. However, I think I’ll just save my money and continue on my search for a coffee alternative which I actually enjoy drinking.
This isn’t to write Teeccino as a brand off; I’d suggest ordering the sampler pack from their website in order to make an informed decision rather than pin all your hopes and dreams to one large tub of a single flavor.
This is a great, savory warm beverage. The mint can seem like a bit of a bitter taste, but I love to add a couple of drops of stevia and that’s all you need to turn it into a tasty treat. Unique choice for a change for your taste buds!

Teeccino is a very healthy alternative to coffee and the chocolate mint flavor is delicious. The price was great, too!
I had to stop drinking coffee a year ago, and this stuff is a life saver. Don’t expect anything that isn’t coffee to taste like coffee, but this is the closest thing out there. I drink it by the potful every morning. Chocolate mint is my favorite of all the Teeccino flavors, and I’ve tried all of them. It’s rich, dark, not too chocolaty, and the mint flavor helps me wake up. It tastes good with or without cream. I’ve experienced no physical side effects drinking this, unlike with coffee and black, green, and white teas.
As some other reviewers mentioned, it does not necessarily work for everyone as a coffee substitute. I’ve had teeccino for 2 weeks now and must acknowledge that it was hard in the beginning. BUT as soon as I followed a recommendation on a teeccino can – mixing teeccino with real coffee first and then gradually reducing the coffee ratio – I was being able to enjoy the drink AND I felt so much better – no after-coffee syndrome any more. I am still mixing in 1 tsp of coffee or less to 1 full scoop of teeccino, for the taste, at the same time I am getting used to the new taste. I also mix in with non-dairy milks – rice, coconut or almond – coconut works the best for me, although a brand matters. I highly recommend to follow the instruction on the package – makes all the difference for coffee addicts – to slow down the transition from real coffee to a substitute. A taste of teeccino is great on its own – great job of its maker, it just does not feel right for a coffee addict. Give yourself time for your taste buds to adjust, and you’ll start enjoying the teeccino as well. Also experiment with a coffee maker and non-dairy milks.
This is a great tasting product with the best price I could find online or in the store. This is my favorite flavor they offer.
