6. Carob


This brew is a hybrid cross between hot coffee and chocolate. Carob is the perfect hot drink to pick you up without feeding the addiction to caffeine. Add honey and milk, and you will enjoy a comforting brew.

5. Dandelion Tea

Dandelion tea

If you are constantly on the go and coffee takes too long to brew, dandelion tea is the perfect alternative without the caffeine. The beverage is mildly sweet, with a rich, creamy flavor. It’s made from roasted dandelion root!

You can blend the tea with barley rye, beets and chicory root. All of these ingredients dissolve instantly in hot or cold water. When you switch to dandelion tea, you will have more energy throughout the day (natural energy, that is).
