I know that those are not Raw..and that neither is tea..but I was wondering if any of you drink them. I am thinking of having some pero with raw honey and almond milk.
For any who do not know, pero is a coffee substitute made with roasted barley and chicory I believe..and ground into a powder. You use it like instant coffee powder.
Hot drinks are nice...they are filling and comforting..with a minimum of negative impact, I would think. Unless of course..they are a "gateway" food...

I've heard of Pero but not tried it. I've been using Teeccino at someone's recommendation. I don't remember whom...
It's YUMMY!! It's not raw. But it's much better than coffee. I'm a coffee junkie. Not so much the caffeine. I've go no trouble giving that up. But the community that goes with it. The sitting, sipping and chatting. I've gotten so I bring my little tub of Teeccino with me to coffee shops and have them make it for me when out with friends. Most have loose leaf tea brewers and they love a nice tip.
I got the Java and the Mocha to try it out. It's $6 for half a pound at Whole Foods. I love the Java. Tastes just like coffee. The Mocha is just like hot chocolate. Not like coffee with chocolate added...
I has NO caffeine. So I don't worry about drinking it at night. I used to work for a cardiologist. When folks had heart trouble they weren't allowed even decaf because it still has some caffeine. I love having this rich beverage to sip before bed time. It's the ritual of it. The little self indulgence.

Yes..I have tried that before. I liked it...I forget which flavour I had. The pero does not have any caffeine either...I just like it because it is hot....and it is so-o-o-o cold here..and it feels like a treat...just like you said.
I just made some...it is yummy. :-)
