A hardy perennial best known for its association with coffee, it produces a more 'roasted' flavor, with no caffeine. Some coffees offer blends with up to 30% chicory, which cuts down on the caffeine content.
To use as a tea, pour 1 cup boiling water over 1 tsp of herb, cover and steep 3-5 minutes.
I decided to eliminate all caffeine from my diet. Eliminating coffee was the hardest thing to do. I had terrible withdrawal symptoms for several days and craved something to replace my morning coffee. I am gluten intolerant and vegan, so that made it that much more difficult to find a good replacement. I decided to try organic roasted chicory root because I knew that it is often mixed with coffee in different blends and is caffeine free. I was really happy with the results. I put it in a pot with some cinnamon, pour in some boiling water, and let it brew for 5 minutes. Then, I use a strainer to pour out the liquid into my cup. I add some soy milk to it and I find it delicious. I don't miss coffee at all anymore. I sometimes add other ingredients to it, like carob powder, but find the chicory itself is enough for me. I put the contents of the big bag into a large glass bowl that I had. It has an air-tight cover and makes it very easy to use that way. I usually use a heaping teaspoon of the chicory to make a nice, strong brew. I love this stuff and will never be without it from now on. I look forward to having it every morning now.
This product was perfect for me. The taste is pungent and the grind is even. It works well as a hot drink or a coffee booster and does not clog a paper filter. The vacuum packaging is ideal for me as I am an international customer and purchase fairly large quantities in order to optimize my shipping costs. Totally satisfied with the purchase.
Coffee Substitute for those who can't drink coffee

Great substitute for coffee. You can also mix half and half with coffee to cut down your coffee intake.
Had to revise my previous 5 star review

Previous: Really good! TODAY: Bleah!! Worst chicory ever, tasted like turpentine and smelled like turpentine after a few days; I even roasted it again to try and give it a roasted flavor and smell, helped some - but still tastes like chemicals. NEVER had this happen before; just have to throw it out. I will give them one more chance on a new package....weird: my iherb order shows that I only bought this in 2013????? JUST BOUGHT IT WITHIN 2 WEEKS!!
Loved the chickory coffee flavor!

I use this with a small amount of coffee for my breakfast drink. I like the way the flavor just blends in with the coffees flavor. What I like the most about the chicory is all the health benefits it has. Been ordering this for awhile now. Would like to larger package, since I use it every day. Iherb is 1 of the few places that seems to sell roasted chicory
