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 have been drinking this for 3 years and love, love, love it! I have had 2 babies while drinking this and there have been no problems whatsoever through 2 pregnancies and nursing. This flavor is my favorite because I like the sweetness, but not too sweet. I only add a little almond milk and it's as good as my former Starbucks drink :)"

"We are caffeine-free, not because we tried to omit caffeine but because we received samples which included this flavor of Teeccino herbal coffee. We like it BETTER than our other coffees, all of which are caffinated.
We've both been told by doctors to stop the caffeine, but as gourmet coffee lovers it's the one food/drink "vice" we could not give up. Now we have! And because this and some of the other teeccino coffees we now drink are better -- we've discovered we don't really need caffeine after all to wake up in the morning. Who would have predicted this? Thanks, teeccino."

"I was told for health reasons to stop drinking coffee - regular or decaf!! I was crushed!! I started searching and found Teeccino, I ordered it and loved it. The Hazelnut is my favorite. Teeccino has coffee beat all the way around - has a longer shelf life, doesn't stain your teeth, and no after taste - is great hot or cold and is good for you. When are going to get Teeccino in the coffee shops!!??"

"Hazelnut Herbal Coffee is one of my absolute favorites. I drink it all throughout the week and it has enabled me to drop the caffeine habit completely. I don't even miss my once daily trips to Starbucks. Hazelnut has a taste that is creamy, smooth and almost bold. It is the perfect fit for a coffee lover."
