Tea for Coffee Drinkers

What teas do you recommend for coffee drinkers? A common question on the floor of our Saratoga Springs tea shop, teas for coffee lovers is one of our favorites to answer! 

Whether you are looking to cut back on caffeine, supplement your morning coffee with an afternoon tea pick-me-up, or transition from coffee to the longer, more-sustained caffeination of tea, we've got a recommendation for you.

This collection is a mix of caffeinated teas and caffeine-free herbal tisanes with flavor profiles that will appeal to coffee drinkers. Most of these teas have deep, earthy flavors that echo what you love about coffee - without trying to be coffee. 

The one notable exception to this flavor-profile rule is Matcha, a stone-ground green tea powder that's whisked into water and packs a serious antioxidant punch. Matcha is a green tea, so its flavor is going to be sweet and vegetal as opposed to the leathery, earthy, tobacco notes of coffee. But we simply cannot have a collection of teas for coffee drinkers without Matcha! Containing nearly as much caffeine as coffee, matcha delivers a steadier and longer dose of caffeine and has helped many a former coffee-drinker to conquer those caffeine jitters!
