The first time I tasted hazelnuts was in France when my taste buds were tantalized by a jar of a scrumptious spread. My schoolgirl French was put to the test by "noisette" on the label. Too good to be peanut butter, not almond, what was it? It was Hazelnut butter!
My love affair with Hazelnuts began then, but it really came to fruition when I designed Teeccino's Hazelnut Herbal Coffee. I had long since given up rich desserts, but here was that tempting richness with a nuttiness that keeps you desiring it way past the last drop.
Hazelnut is what the word "savoury" is meant to describe. Now you can enjoy something sinfully rich without worrying about either the calories or the caffeine!
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, dates, almonds, organic dates, natural hazelnut flavor, figs.

"I had to quit drinking coffee a year ago because of side effects of caffeine that were becoming increasingly more bothersome. I went without any hot beverage for an entire year except for herbal teas. When I tried a sample of the Teeccino hazelnut, I couldn't believe my tastebuds! It tasted so much like my beloved hazelnut coffee that I used to drink at Panera, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!! But this is so much better. It has none of the acidity of coffee and all of the flavor! And none of the bothersome side effects! Thank you, Caroline, for this wonderful product. You have a customer for life."

"Teeccino herbal coffee has the same taste and kick that real coffee does except without the acidity and caffeine. Where caffeine gives you a spike in energy then a crash, teeccino gives you a more progressive lift that lasts for hours without the sudden crash. I reccommend this product to anyone looking to get away from caffiene!"

"Better than coffee, yet so similar that it would fool me if I didn't make it myself. Makes an amazing latte too. I doubled the grounds in a French press and added whpped warm vanilla soy milk for a latte that is the best I ever made at home (and I have a lot of practice).
I am recommending this to my coffee loving friends. "

"I'm an ex-latte drinker who had to give up caffeine as well as sugar. Teeccino in general, and Hazelnut Herbal specificially, has made that transition not only palatable, but compellingly delicious. I love this stuff.
