Sara,

Drinking it w/ unsweetened soymilk sounds great!  I still have a latte/capuccino machine on my counter that I never use anymore.  I wonder if I could grind the Teeccino finer and use it with my machine?!?!?   That would be heaven!

Oh, and the "teabag" is a great idea.  I often go with friends or my husband - out to Starbucks.  I sit there, drinking an herbal tea, wishing like heck it was coffee instead.  I'd be willing to pay for the hot water - if I could drink something that was more like coffee!   I'd think they would let me pay for a tea and hot water - and take the tea bag home with me?  Then, I'd just use the hot water for the Teeccino!    If it would help with those Starbuck latte cravings, I'd be thrilled to death!  

I'm definitely going out and getting some asap!

Meg,
I think the "java" flavor is the most like coffee. Hopefully, that will appeal to you, too, now that you've distanced yourself a bit from those high powered Starbucks!

The mocha is very coffee-like, too, with just a hint of chocolate so it satisfies both cravings for me. Their other flavors didn't appeal to me as much because of fruity or a slight chemical flavoring taste.

I'd love to hear if it appeals to you after a second try!

All right, NOW WHAT??!!!
I'm not enjoying my coffee anymore! ....I suppose that's a good thing...
BTW, I was floored when I found out last night that the BF told somebody he can't have coffee. He was out for an after-work non-compliant breakfast binge. And when he came home he noted he had a bad case of the hem-in-ahem's -   what he calls that enthusiastic mucous production O's get from dairy & wheat. He's turning out to be almost  more careful than me re: this BTD thang. Color me impressed!
D**n, I'm good!

Coffee myths then and now.General and personal. Army finds soldiers may or may not stay awake when provided coffee 24/7. Stunts growth of children.  true/false? Then there is that pop news flash that startled me recently that I've not seen mentioned here yet. Finally some so called south american research or other claimed different effects from coffee for different people depending on heritage. Not exactly NEWS...No mention of Blood type, but of course I just have to read between the lines when ever I see medical research driving around the BTD' hood.  One other popNEWS flash not so recent I recall is the one about Coffee and Alzhiemers. Never heard it actually fleshed out but it had some assertion to the effect that coffee drinkers stood a better chance of keeping the brain they had working better. Anyone care to slam that one? My thanks to everyone chasing this thread along. I've really paused in my intake of coffee because of the various inputs offered. I'm just crazy about coffee flavored half-n-half. I once jokingly made my new years resolution to drink more!  And did! I think the interesting thing I've observed personally after thinking about the things I've read here regarding doing or not doing it is with how sleep is supposed to be affected (just how am I dreaming/resting?) and how alertness in the morning can "seem" to be affected. Has anyone else noticed that if you manage to stop, the morning is not dependent on the brew anymore? I was amazed. But have a few cups each day for a few days in a row and uhhhhhhh can't find my toes or anything else until the cup meets my lips. Then of course I think I'm fine. Am I really? I read and weep at the supposed unseen ravages of this delightful beverage on my type -O- system. To what degree is denial going to sway my continued drift back within its embrace. Nobody ever calls me jittery.  No headaches on cessation either. My stomach feels fine (especially since wheat is gone) I do sense myself somehow happier without the ritual embedded in my life when I clear it from the deck. On the other hand what is there to not say, that each plant or animal  that shares its store of planetary wisdom/substance/force with me somehow does get me closer to what is, and what is not, if I can only learn to listen? Trying to see the difference in my life is very difficult.  I must be stupid to ever drink it again. With all the reasons not to presented here there seems to be no question for us -O's-.
Thanks again everybody you have all made me think harder about this than ever before.

Bad news on the Teecino ( I probably posted on this way back when, as I tried it a long time ago. Wasn't that crazy about it and I knew I shouldn't really be drinking it anyway. Altho, truthfully, if it didn't have the barley, I think I'd have tried harder to like it. The fact it contained barley, was always "in my way".)             Second ingredient in all Teecino coffees, if I remember right, is barley. An avoid for O's.    Neutral for everyone else.

PS.....went to their website and yes, all flavors have barley as the 2nd ingredient. The website does however, have a lot of good info about the "evils" of coffee.
http://www.teeccino.com/Default.aspx

Other than the barley, it has a bunch of great ingredients.

I went back thru this thread and ran across a site that PT posted as well. I think it's worth reposting, as it brings out a lot of negative about the effects of coffee that I think we O's need to read - again. Oh, me, oh, my, will we ever learn?

Italybound,
Thanks for the alert about the barley in Teeccino. DARN! I missed that entirely since I never eat barley & therefor never paid attention to it as an avoid. I was so excited about the chicory, carob & figs being beneficials that I neglected to doublecheck the rest. In rechecking barley in the typebase it's listed as a metabolic inhibitor. If losing weight is not a concern would the small amount in a cup of Teeccino affect me in other ways?

Sara C, someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but when it says metabolic inhibitor, I think it's referring to inhibiting the way our body metabolizes other foods. This is how I've always understood it and don't know if it is referring to losing weight or not. It will be interesting to find out. Thanks for asking that question
I, too, was excited about all the good things in Teecino, but couldn't get past knowing the barley was in there.

I thank you for even mentioning the empty tea bags that I knew must be for sale somewhere.  I'm going to have to look into purchasing some to make some tea bags for Roasted Chickory root that we are quite stuck on.

Well its true that Coffee is bene for me but lately I have lost interest in it. Ive been drinking 3 or so cups of Organic Haiku Hojicha Roasted Green tea and I am really enjoying it. I had been addicted to coffee while working in a cafe but finally had to quit because my Iron was super low down to 8 (whatever they measure it by measurement units) the withdrawl was terrible and it took 6 months to get my iron back up with 85 mg. iron pills. Now that I added coffee back into my diet my iron level begain to creep back down so I had to take iron pills again. So Im just drinking coffee every once in a while.

JamieB, what is it about the coffee that is affecting your iron? Also, where are you getting your Organic Haiku Hojicha Roasted Green tea and what company makes it ?  I looked for that at WF, but didn't see it there and have been wanting to try it. Thanks for mentioning it .

Hi Italy,
I'm not JamieB, but I appreciate her reminder of how good Roasted green teas are!  I know Peppermint Twist also loves her roasted green and it helped her stay compliant in the hot beverage department.

Great Eastern Sun is a marvelous company and they have great teas.  Your health food store should be able to order it for you because it is a well-known company.

Isa!  I just noticed this post!  Congratulations on your new direction with green tea.  It is much better for you than coffee.  (Even though you have an A in your blood type)  Good luck, and give it time.

And another thing, that Great Eastern Sun site has a nice chart of caffeine contents of coffee and various teas.

Tomatilla I., glad to hear you are doing so well on your "offing" from coffee.     And no really bad side effects!! What more could you ask for?  When I quit it, it doesn't bother me physically, just mentally. I don't drink much, but once in a while, it calls my name.  I know, I know, I should turn a deaf ear, right?      Maybe some day my common sense will kick in again.

Well, Isa, you COULD taper off gradually, you know!    (But where's the fun in that, eh? )

Anyway, give it some time.  It takes a few days for the body to come out of shock, and then, you will feel a lot better in a lot of ways.

Keep smiling!    Drink a lot of water.  And maybe for a few days, drink more green tea than usual.

Thanks Isa.              Cinnamon sticks are how we refer to them here. Will have to check that out. As the site I'm referring to IS a bit slinky, I'll PM it to you, then you can see first hand what slinky means.
