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 Mocha tastes just like Mediterranean Mocha with that beloved combo of flavors, coffee and chocolate, that is so irresistible! Dandelion Mocha 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 Mocha produces a cup where indulgent temptation becomes virtuous via the health benefits of nature’s healing herbs.
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic chicory, organic dandelion root, dates, almonds, natural mocha flavor, organic figs, organic cocoa powder.

"I love the Mocha! This is the first time I have tried it and it is probably my favorite. I do a rounded tablespoon of Mocha and about a teaspoon each of Hazelnut and Dandelion Dark Roast, in about 20 ounces of water. It's fantastic. I'd highly recommend. Great rich flavor."

"At a recent birthday gathering I served up Teeccino for the evening coffee. Everyone loved it, surprised by the hint of mocha and the mild flavors. So I'm buying it for Christmas gifts for someone who has medical concerns so I know this will be better for her health.
Love, love, love teeccino!"

"I love this flavor, and several others, but I have finally figured out that it is the chicory root (also known as inulin) in Teeccino that is causing me horrible stomach distress. If you're like me, and drinking this causes pain, bloating, and gas, then you might want to avoid it. I have a ton of Teeccino that I now need to give away to someone I dislike."

"i was absolutely HOOKED on the chocolate or the Java dark roasts grinds only added to my ground coffee in the am; but to find out i had to strictly avoid gluten. This works as an excellent substitute. Not as dark roast but with dark roast coffee mixed it works. I hate the tea bags any flavor AND THE OTHER truly gluten free teecino's I do not like. Sad to taste the awful licorice in the tumeric blend.... really hate licorice taste"

"Not at all impressed with this version. Continually looking for the best coffee substitute..this reminded my wife and I of drinking Hot Graham Crackers. No syrup or flavor enhancer could in any way remove that odd flavoring."

"For most of my 65 years, I have been a coffee addict. I would live on coffee and ice cream if I could only pick 2 things to eat for the rest of my life.
For health reasons, I was told to stop caffeine. I switched to decaf coffee, which was still fine with me.
Knowing that tea is healthier than coffee, I decided to try teeccino. Wow!
I love most of the favors I've tried, but the mocha, with a little stevia, is pure heaven. It's a cross between hot cocoa and coffee and I LOVE it the best so far!
I rarely write reviews but I felt compelled to write this one. (I'm not sure if teeccino is aware, but the natural fruit this is made with also is exceptionally helpful in the elimination of waste, if you get my drift. The bathroom, for those of you who didn't.)"

"i originally bought the one made with barley from the local grocery store and enjoyed it. I thought I would try the one with dandelion. I haven't been disappointed. I even picked up the sampler. I can't tell you which s my favorite flavor. I love them all. "

"I always looked so forward to that cup of coffee in the morning (one of the things that would get me out of bed), but due to health issues I had to be off it for a while. It was very unpleasant, but during that time I stumbled upon teeccino mocha flavor and was ever so grateful. I longed for that deep robust taste that teas just could not deliver. The funny thing too is when I was able to resume drinking coffee again I actually wondered if the teeccino might actually tastes better!?!?"

"I'm trying to stop coffee, don't drink that much, but i would add a tea bag into the coffee to cut the acidity. I really enjoyed it in the evenings and would always have a bag in my purse. My business takes me overnight away sometimes, so it was nice to have the teechino with me. Another thing I noticed is that it seemed to help me with digestion and elimination, which has always been a struggle for me.
I wasn't too thrilled with the taste of this one and found I had to add two bags in a cup to get the flavor richness, but I'm not stopping here, I look forward to trying new flavors."

"I have tried many of the regular flavors after receiving my sampler pack and have found them all to be slightly bitter and too strong. My favorite is the mocha but even that was not exactly what I was looking for until I tried the dandelion mocha. It is perfect! I like it MUCH better as there is no bitter taste to it. I have used the regular flavors in a drip coffee pot but found that the flavor was too muted. I prefer to place the grounds in a large tea ball and soak in boiled water for 10 minutes. It gives a much more robust flavor experience. I use two slightly rounded tablespoons and 6 cups of water. "

"Love this flavor..have just ordered Vanilla to try next.
I have tons of food sensitivities so this was a blessing to find such a great product I could enjoy.
I mix it with nondairy creamer and/or almond milk to add to the mocha taste!"

"I'm gluten-sensitive, and while the regular Teeccino doesn't bother me at all, I tried the Dandelion Teeccino because I've read that dandelion is very good for the liver. I think this is my new favorite! It's rich without being too sweet or too strong. "

"i've only tried two flavors of teeccino, but this one BY FAR beat the french roast. i'm a huge mocha fan, and this takes the cake. i had to give up caffiene over a year ago (didn't know you could overdose on it) and i'm SO glad i found this company. tastes just like coffee! the mocha especially is awesome! hot, cold, doesn't matter, AWESOME!"

"The chocolate is a little hint. I am weaning off coffee myself and find this to be THE perfect product for me as it is gluten free. It is a different taste as dandelion is the base for this coffee. I don't think I could drink it black, it is too bitter. I only add some coconut creamer and a few drops of pure stevia extract and it's taste is phenomenal! My daughter says," Can I have some teecino mommy, please?"! "

"I have to give up coffee and gluten due to autoimmune issues and I stumbled on this product. I tried the dandelion sampler. Shipping was free, so if you are in doubt..get the sampler! I added creamer as I usually do to my coffee and OMG!! It is slightly different than regular coffee, but I know I can totally get used to this taste! I thought it was fantastic! It looks and tastes 'like' coffee!"

"Although the flavor of this Teeccino variety is good, I was disappointed that the strength is about half that of the regular mocha variety. I can make a two-cup serving of the regular mocha Teeccino and with the dandelion I can only make a one cup serving."

"We love Dandelion Mocha, and we especially love that my celiac husband doesn't have to be careful not to get any of the grounds in his drink. The Dandelion flavors contain no barley, so they are completely gluten free.
We brew a pot of Dandelion Teeccino every day. I feel a lot better than when I have coffee, even decaf, and since we started drinking Teeccino, coffee doesn't even taste that good to me."
By: shar from closter/nj on April 29, 2012
"Love the flavor and the medium strength is perfect. The french roast was very good but I much prefer the smoothness of the mocha. These coffees taste as good as the Teechino herbal flavors. Dont let the dandelion scare you, it's not like your tastebuds can decipher it. Good to the last drop!"
By: Tim Guthrie from Sequim, WA on April 6, 2012
"I like the taste. 4 rating is only because I like the Dark Roast better. Possibly redundant because using one of the other two Gluten-Free choices and adding my own chocolate (powder/syrup/etc) I get more mocha flavor) Super to have the choice finally as a Gluten-Allergic, Caffeine-free (by choice) individual to have my "hot drink" whenever I want it. I use a French Press for speed and best flavor."

"A couple years ago I had to stop drinking coffee. I didn't know about Teeccino. My husband stated he couldn't and wouldn't stop the coffee habit. He loved his coffee too much. Well, he had to stop coffee this last year and about the same time I was given a sample of Dandelion Mocha Herbal Coffee. I tried it first because he is so picky. Loved it. Had my husband try it. "Wow, this is herbal not coffee beans, I'm sold!" We have been using it ever since and several friends and family love it, especially knowing there is no acid and caffeine. Thank you for a great product!"
