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 Caramel Nut tastes just like Teeccino Caramel Nut to satisfy the person who loves a medium roasted sweet twist. 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 Caramel Nut 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, dates, almonds, natural caramel nut flavor, organic figs.

"I recently was diagnosed with severe endometriosis and needed to change my diet entirely which meant No Sugar, No caffeine, No Dairy, No Gluten. After 2 months of this new diet, I found this coffee alternative and decided it was worth a try. Honestly, it was SOOOO good that I finished the entire box in a few days. I feel like I can have this one simple joy back in my life. Thank you for making such a great product that suits my dietary needs. "

"I've had a strong desire to return to drinking coffee again but it's not good for my health. I found this product at a local health food store last night and tried this AM. Wow! I am shocked at how much it gives the sensation of having coffee. Not exactly the same but really close enough! Looking forward to brewing some in a drip coffee maker. Thanks for making versions without barley."

"I just love this flavor, it tastes amazing. I received a sample while enjoying the Soul Food Festival and now I am hooked. The only downside is that it is only available in the tea bag version. Can't wait for it to come in the version I can use with my drip coffee maker *hint, hint ; ) "

"I had no idea how I was going to stop my Starbucks addiction because I just really like lattes; also I am gluten free and have come to feel like fancy coffees are a treat because I cant have most dessert. I went looking for an herbal substitute but they all seemed to have barley, and I'm not willing to risk any sort of gluten reaction. This tea is not as dark or bitter as coffee, but the flavor is really lovely. I drink it in a small coffee cup for really rich flavor and add a milk substitute. I don't use sweetener because I don't like sweetness in my beverages and don't think that it needs it. I'm so glad to have found this (I credit my mom). I drink three cups a day because I enjoy it so much (I never drank that much coffee). I've also tried the vanilla and hazelnut versions, and I prefer this one (the caramel nut) the best."

"I discovered this truly gluten free Teecino flavor by accident while looking at my local food co-op for more tea now that I'm not drinking coffee (again). I was familiar with Teecino from the past but stopped drinking it years ago when I realized that the trace gluten was indeed an issue for me.
It was a wonderful delight then to realize that the taste and aroma of this product is better than that of many coffees! Thank you so much for creating this yummy healthy beverage!!!!"

"I have loved the Teeccino herbal coffees as they are non-acidic and caffeine free. But when I realized I had to go gluten free I thought I had to give them up. Then I found the gluten free Dandelion Caramel Nut and was thrilled! It has such a robust smooth flavor that I have a refill with the same tea bag! I love it!"

"This is by far my favorite. I've tried just about everything possible to satisfy my craving for coffee with hazelnut soymilk "creamer." [I am trying to avoid caffeine, soy, cream AND gluten.] This is amazing! It's so tasty all on its own--no sweetener or cream needed. Really! Thanks for making my day, Teeccino!"

Dates and figs slightly sweeten Teeccino's Mediterranean flavors without adding significantly to the calories per serving. Dates and figs contain antioxidants that are water soluble and extract during brewing.
Teeccino's Mediterranean flavors contain golden roasted almonds that create a rich, nutty flavor yet don't add any fat to a cup of Teeccino. Almonds also contain significant quantities of antioxidants including proanthocyanidins (OPCs) and...
