Is being gluten-free important to you? Even though Teeccino has been tested to have no detectable levels of gluten at 5 parts per million when brewed using a paper filter, you may be worried that you might still experience a reaction to the barley in Teeccino. Understanding that gluten-sensitive people, just like caffeine-sensitive people, can be hyper sensitive to trace gluten, I decided it was time to create a barley-free coffee alternative that is absolutely gluten-free.
Teeccino Dandelion Dark Roast (previously known as Dandelion French Roast) tastes just like our 'regular' French Roast to satisfy the person who loves dark roasted, regular flavor. It brings the health benefits of roasted dandelion root including its inulin content, antioxidants, and stimulating effects on liver function to your cup. With more dandelion root per serving than any other brand puts in their tea bags, Teeccino Dandelion Dark Roast Roast produces a cup where the deep, full body of coffee meets the health benefits of nature’s healing herbs.
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic chicory, organic dandelion root, organic ramón seeds, natural coffee flavor.
May contain trace amounts of almonds.

"i bought these tee- bags intending to use them on the go. i think the flavor is a lot weaker than the grounds (which i prepare in a french press). plus i've ripped open the packaging twice only to realize i'd ripped through the the tee-bags themselves and had coffee grounds fly all over my kitchen. don't waste your money on these. get the grounds and have better flavor and a clean kitchen! :)"

"It doesn't taste exactly like coffee, but it got me off the stuff. I was so addicted, I would think about it every morning until I had some. Now I have coffee once a week, usually on Sunday, and its a treat. I have a heart condition so that's why I had to stop drinking coffee. but I couldn't, not until this product. The bulk product is more full bodied and rich than the bags. "

"The Dandelion French Roast Herbal Coffee is very similar to the regular French Roast Herbal Coffee except the "Dandelion" one seems to be smoother or silkier in taste. They are both very good in flavor.
I also, have bought the French Roast Herbal Coffee in bags and use it in my Hamilton Beach l cup coffee brewer. I use 1 tablespoon of herbal coffee to 14 oz. of water.
I really can't tell the difference now between regular coffee and the herbal coffee. I am very glad that Teeccino makes the herbal coffee available to those of us that can't or maybe those of us that shouldn't drink caffeine."

"This is a great coffee substitute for those who cannot enjoy regular joe. I suffer greatly from migraines, so coffee has been off limits for over 10 years. Teeccino Dandelion Dark Roast has been a delicious addition. I even make a great iced coffee drink using it. "
