Well, I've found my locally-grown coffee substitute, should I choose to accept it. That Ilex cornuta, Chinese holly, has a sweetish citrus flavor and a strong kick, whether caffeine or theobromine or some other alkaloid I have no clue. It hit me hard after the 2nd 4-oz glass. Gonna lay off from it a while and drink some water.
