Chicory coffee: a worthy substitute

Coffee drinkers making the switch to tea do so for a variety of reasons, including added health benefits and the need to lower caffeine intake. They often seek a tea that tastes most like coffee. To make this transition easier (and tastier), Adagio Teas has created a new product: Chicoriccino, a chicory-based blend with all the comforts of coffee.

Chicory coffee has been around for some time, dating back to 19th century France. Chicory root was frequently added to coffee beans, often as a cost-saving practice during coffee shortages. However, Chicory coffee is quite enjoyable on its own… especially at the hands of the master blenders at Adagio Teas.
Other ingredients in Adagio’s new Chicoriccino blend include cocoa nibs, cinnamon, and dandelion root. With just a trace of caffeine, and a smooth toasty character, Chicoriccino is a perfect coffee doppelgänger.

Available in mid-September, Chicoriccino aims to be the go-to cozy autumn beverage. Sample sizes will start at only $3.
