Vanilla Nut was the first Teeccino flavor I ever created. I wanted to feature vanilla beans from Mexico where I was working to preserve rainforests.
Vanilla, the only orchid used in food, has become a favorite the world over due to its unparalleled fragrance and complex, heady flavor. Vanilla is indigenous to Central America where it was discovered by the native people centuries before the Spanish arrived. The Aztec Emperor, Montezuma, was said to be drinking an elixir for longevity made from cacao, vanilla and honey when the conquistadors were ushered in for an audience.
Now this may seem like trivia, but do you know that each vanilla bean has to be handled hundreds of times during its 6 month curing process? Doesn’t that bring home the wonder of nature and the cleverness of humans?
It is no surprise to me that Vanilla Nut has always been our best selling Mediterranean flavor. Drink it knowing that you are helping indigenous communities find sustainable livelihoods that preserve rainforests.
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, dates, almonds, organic dates, natural vanilla extract, natural nut flavor, figs.

"I was given a single bag by a friend to try. I absolutely love it. I gave coffee up 4 years ago and this is a welcome replacement. An interesting side benefit has been that the taste is so robust, and the drink itself substantial enough that I drink it instead of snacking. I've lost 5 pounds in the last two weeks and now have more energy to exercise as well!"

"I thought I would try these although I prefer the ground coffee. They are very handy when you are in a hurry. And who isn't in a hurry these days! I thought the flavour would be less robust but if you leave it to steep the flavour is very nice."

"I was an avid coffee drinker. My doctor told me one day no more caffeine, sugar or flour! I could live without the other two but no caffeine. She said not even decaf. Yikes! Now what? In searching the internet for an alternative, I found teeccino! What a life saver! I love the vanilla nut. It is my favorite from all the flavors. I add sugar free vanilla creamer to it and am in heaven. It does not wake me up like coffee but it does help. So glad I searched for it! It's been over a year without caffeine thanks to my secret to weapon teeccino I have been saved!"

"After the shock wore off from the realization that I just cannot consume caffeine any longer I went on line and researched coffee alternatives because I knew kicking the coffee habit was going to be an uphill battle. I came across the Teeccino website and ordered the Vanilla Nut Herbal Coffee Tee-Bags because it sounded most like the vanilla coffee I used to drink and the bags so I could have them with me everywhere as a quick alternative to that cup of coffee. I loved the taste of it at first sip and 3 months later I am still enjoying it. I had a bit of coffee the other day and it was so bitter and immediately upset my stomach...I threw it out and made a cup of my yummy Vanilla Nut and haven't looked back."

"Was lucky to have stumbled upon this in a health food store in Queensland, Australia. Loved it the first time I tried it but have never seen it before. Normally Australia sucks when it comes to trying to buy amazing products such as this from overseas. Most US retailers do not ship to Australian addresses. I was absolutely amazed and pleased to find that Teeccino did. Finally I have a coffee substitute I can drink toward the end of night shift when I need a drink but dont want the caffeine keeping me awake for the rest of the day, that actually tastes amazing too. All too often products make claims of flavours that dont exist in the real thing. Teeccino is not like this - the vanilla nut tastes like it sounds. Well done and thank you Teeccino for a great product."

"Vanilla Nut is by far my favorite flavor! I gave up coffee in January of this year and don't miss it at all....thanks to Teechino! I absolutely love the tee bags because I can't get my boyfriend to give up the coffee so he uses the coffee maker. The tee bags are awesome and saves us from having two coffee makers going. "

"My father-in-law cannot drink coffee or tea any more due to a medical condition. This gives him a comforting, warm beverage that he can enjoy without the worry of caffeine any time he wishes. He likes the smoothness and depth of flavor in the vanilla and says he cannot detect any difference between this and a cup of regular coffee. He drinks it "black" without any cream or sugar added."

"The best herbal coffee there is, can't get enough of the Vanilla Nut medium roast. Still so difficult to find in stores. Bought it in Wilsonville, OR, can't get it in the greater Palm Springs,CA area. Please do more marketing!!"

"I am so happy that I happened upon Teeccino. These Vanilla Nut Tee-bags are delicious and full bodied. I have stomach issues and shouldn't have coffee. I also have gluten sensitivity and cannot have gluten. Apparently, even though Teeccino contains barley, no gluten is present in the brewed drink. I have had no problems with it whatsoever. I am thrilled to have such a tasty coffee substitute that stands on its own in terms of its complex flavor. "

"I love the Teeccino in the tea bags. I am not crazy about the vanilla because it doesn't seem to have enough taste, but it's still good because of the natural & safe ingredients. Thank you for creating an alternative to coffee. I appreciate it because I can't have caffeine."
