Commercial Description

This full-bodied, caffeine-free alternative to coffee has been a trusted favorite for more than 30 years. With the robust flavors of roasted chicory and barley, a hint of chocolate from roasted carob and just a touch of cinnamon and allspice, Roastaroma is hearty enough to give you a lift in the morning and delicious enough to enjoy all day long.

I'm not a fan. It smells nice dry, kind of like a cinnamon roll. Brewed, the grain aroma from the barley takes over. I can see what they're going for and the chicory, carob and spices combine to give the passable impression of a mocha coffee, but there's too much dark bread crust for my taste.

I don't think this really fits the niche that it's supposed to. If my beverage doesn't need to be absolutely caffeine-free, decaffeinated coffee is far superior to this. Even if I want no caffeine at all, though, I'd rather drink something completely different, like mint. Roastaroma is the turkey bacon of coffee.

Blech!!!!! Just drink some coffee already. This one smelled OK in the bag but was not quite barley, not quite chicory, brown/herbal smelling and not at all like coffee. Sorry. FAIL.

I can't quite decide how I feel about this tea. It sort of hovers on the line between really good and completely off. I like that it brews really dark. Usually with Celestial Seasonings teas, I have to leave the teabag in for like 10 minutes, but this one took just a couple of minutes. It has this nice roasted flavor, but it has this flavor that I've tasted in other coffee alternatives that I don't particularly like, and it just makes the tea taste like "coffee alternative." It's probably the barley. I don't usually like herbal teas, though. I added cream and sugar.

Ok, it is NOT coffee. It is pretty good just as it is, but I have to confess I drink it more out of nostalgia than anything else and I keep it for my "no caffeine shall cross my lips" friends. It's a pleasant drink in the winter evenings.
