I first tried teeccino’s vanilla nut and fell in love. So, of course I had to try the caramel nut flavor. I really don’t know how teeccino does it, but they somehow make this delicious, caffeine free herbal tea that has the body and oomph of coffee. I’ve heard die hard coffee drinkers say they just can’t get into tea because it’s too much like dirty water. As someone who was a serious coffee drinker for years, I understand their feelings. It took me a bit of time to adjust and fall in love with tea myself.
This tea is made for those people. It is so satisfying in that unique coffee way. And it has such natural, delicious sweet flavor that very little sweetener is needed. I can taste both caramel and nuts in this brew. I love it so much. It’s actually become my favorite thing to drink in the morning. Especially as the weather is cooling down. It’s in the cooler months that I get tempted to have coffee. It’s just so soothing, and the pick me up is nice too. But now I have a cup of this with a little coconut milk and it’s better than any latte I would pay for.
Dandelion tea also has many health benefits. It also contains calcium, magnesium, iron, and vitamins B and C. Plain dandelion tea can be a bit bitter, so this is such a tasty way to get some health benefits.
Here’s the scoop!

I’ve been wanting to try Teeccino for quite awhile, but I could never find it at any groceries, even health food stores. Teeccino is a caffeine free coffee alternative made with chicory root and other herbs and flavors. Some blends have carob and dandelion root as well. It’s something a lot of coffee drinkers switch to when they’re trying to lower their coffee intake. A box of Teeccino practically hopped off the shelf at Natural Grocers, and I just had to try it. I chose vanilla nut. The vanilla nut has carob, chicory, and also dates and almonds!
As the weather cools, I crave black teas more, and I try to watch my caffeine intake, so this is perfect. I made myself a cup as soon as I got home. First of all, it looks just like coffee. And while it doesn’t smell exactly like coffee, it definitely has a tempting, rich and deep smell. And I could smell the vanilla right away. I let the bag steep for around five or six minutes, and added a little raw sugar, and a little coconut milk. It tastes so vanilla-y with a little nutty taste in the background. I love it, and this will be a staple in my life in these upcoming cooler months
As someone who was a serious coffee addict, I would recommend this to anyone who might be trying to cut back. It hits that sweet spot that comes from a coffee craving. I can’t wait to try their other flavors!
