Coffee substitute test 1 - Yannoh "coffee"

Some of you may remember that I'm taking a break from coffee.

I have fallen off the wagon a few times in the last 2 weeks but on a whole I'm been fine.  I was surprised that I managed to function some days!

I'm still in the search of a hot and rich drink as a substitute.  I finally managed to visit a health food store in the weekend and bought a few things to try.

First off the bat is Yannoh "coffee", made by a New Zealand company called Golden Fields ($6 for 25 satchels).

The blend is a Japanese recipe that is meant to create an "overall pleasing and strong taste with coffee-like flavour, sweetness and body".

I made my first cuppa on Saturday.  First I tried it without milk - it tasted like genmaicha (Japanese green tea with brown rice).  I didn't think it would work with milk, but surprising it did.  The initial "feel" was thick and almost coffee-like, although the richness dropped away afterwards.  It didn't taste like coffee, but it was pleasant and smooth.  The only minus was that I left it infusing for too long so it was colder than I'd like.

I had another one yesterday and it was a lot more watery, I suspect I didn't have the water/tea ratio right.

This morning I had my third cup in the office.

It was somewhere between the first and second cup in terms of satisfaction.  I put more milk in so it was richer, but it made my tongue a bit dry by the end.

On a whole I was happy to have find this alternative, and I'll keep in on the rotation, but it wasn't IT.  I will try out the next option soon and report back.
