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.

"There has never been a coffee from Teecino I didn't like. I have been strongly restricted from the slightest drop of caffeine. So when I stumbled upon this coffee, I was ecstatic. I can't go a morning without it. Thank you so much for returning some normalcy back into my life."

"I was looking for something to replace coffee and Hazelnut Teechino is the best.
It has the smooth, creamy taste of hazelnuts and I add cream and don't miss coffee a bit.
If you are looking to go caffeine-free, and don't want the chemicals used to decaffeinate coffee, I highly recommend this product."

"I have been a Teeccino customer for several years now and would not give us purchasing for anything in the world. I purchase at least 5 different flavors and make sure I NEVER run out. We practice organic living as much as possible in today's world and this is just one of those wonderful things that falls into that category. Living in FAR Northern Maine there is nothing like a soothing, fragrant cup of coffee on a cold snowy morning, nor is there anything like an awesome cup of coffee on a warm spring day on the deck after the long cold winter. There are so many kudos I could write, but just know you cannot go wrong with the quality, taste and enjoyment of Teeccino coffees. All the flavors I choose - Hazelnut, Vanilla Nut, Caramel Nut, Southern Pecan, and Amaretto are all truly superb. I will always be grateful for the creation of this wonderful company and Perfect Product."

"I am an ardent Teeccino user. It has been a number of years now and I could never go back to Coffee. I have to say I only drink coffee on the week-ends and truly look forward to those comforting morning moments when I can relax and enjoy Teeccino. Living in FAR Northern Maine where the weather is colder longer than most other places Teeccino warms and heart and soul when you snuggle up with a cup of the most flavorful coffee you can ever imagine. I will always have this in my cupboard. Thank you for making the most wonderful product possible."

"I love sipping this tea/coffee with dessert, or actually using it in my dessert. Once brewed, I blend it with flax meal then add black beans, vanilla, coconut palm sugar, grapeseed oil, sea salt, raw cacao powder, and baking powder - blend it all in a high speed blender and bake for 30 min. YUM! I top them with chocolate chips and serve with either a whipped coconut milk or non dairy icecream. Grain free, dairy free, high fiber goodness! "

"Hazelnut is my #1 favorite teeccino! Fabulous flavor, and sweet enough not to need sugar or sweetener. Since I figured out that I should no longer drink caffeine, teeccino has come to my rescue. I don't know how I would have got along without it. Thank goodness I don't have to!"
By: secretlobster from Fairfield, CT US on January 8, 2013
"Out of the flavors I've tried so far (hazelnut, chocolate, vanilla nut), this one comes closest to the real thing in terms of flavor, smell and consistency. A friend of mine didn't even realize she wasn't actually drinking hazelnut coffee, now she's a teeccino convert. Totally satisfying."
By: Jill Storch from Flagstaff, AZ on October 1, 2012
"I've been struggling to get off coffee for quite a while now. I've found the perfect solution! Couldn't be happier - feels like a real treat :) Have only tried the Hazelnut so far & love it. Just ordered a bunch of other flavors that I'm hoping to love as well"
By: Becky from Gaylord, MI on August 31, 2012
"Just got mine and it does not taste like coffee. It has a terrible odor so i have to put my lid on my cup which helps alitte. I was very excited about this product since it has great reviews. I can no longer drink coffee because of the acid. I am going to keep drinking to see if it grows on me, but as of now yuck. "

"My first time trying teecino. I really enjoyed it and I am about to go get some more. I love that it is a healthy coffee substitute. It is not quite as bold as coffee, which can be a good thing, but it takes a little getting used to to replace your daily cup."

"I love carob so am delighted with Teeccino! It has helped me get off coffee.
I also bought a large jar of Kaffree Roma that won't get used unless I run out of TC.
At Caribou Coffee I order a latte with no coffee and throw in a TC bag -- wonderful!
Can only get Hazelnut, Almond and Mocha at the EarthFare store here in Charlotte so am happy that I can order on-line. (I even gave away a TC bag to a lady at the store who hadn't tried it).
Attention TC sales: we have a Whole Foods opening up in Aug. and a DNC coming up!"

"I have never been a heavy coffee drinker other then the occasional coffee shop drink. I have never owned a coffee maker or bought coffee for that matter. I have really only relied on tea for my caffeine fix here and there. My mom never drank coffee growing up due to allergies and sensitivity to caffeine, and of course I inherited that sensitivity to caffeine as well and to much caffeine in a day makes for a not so good day or night for me. I have always loved the smell and taste of coffee as my dad does drink coffee, however even decaff bothered me due to the way they remove the caffeine. Well I found what I have been looking for a while a drink that looks smells and tastes like but with out all the caffeine and acidity. I found my drink for life, this was the first flavor I tried and I loved it I just bought some Mocha from the Medd. line and cant wait to try it. I just ordered some samples and cant wait for them to get here! I am fortunate to live in an area where I can get this at my local whole foods store I wish your sampler was sold in stores. I will defiantly be recommending this to people! "

"I purchased this because of a review stating it tastes "just like" Panera's hazelnut coffee. Well, almost. I drink black coffee, and actually like the bitterness of it, but do enjoy the aroma of the flavored coffees.
If you brew this herbal coffee and drink it black, it tastes like mild black coffee with a "flavor shot" of hazelnut, so it is slightly sweet. That's fine if you usually add light and/or sweetener, but not black. I have eliminated most of this sweetness by adding about 1/4 tsp salt to the 3 scoops of grinds for my 10-cup brew. You can't actually taste the salt, it just removes/masks the sweetness.
I will try one of the plain versions, or get a variety pack, on my next purchase."

"This is the most amazing "coffee" ever...
You can make it as "strong" or as "weak" as you wish, by adjusting the amount you put into your coffeemaker...just play with it and you will find your own perfect cup of "joe" without any of the side affects of regular coffee...
Bless you, Teeccino for this product!!!!"

"I'm an ex-latte drinker who had to give up caffeine as well as sugar. Teeccino in general, and Hazelnut Herbal specificially, has made that transition not only palatable, but compellingly delicious. I love this stuff.
By: Lisa from Hillsboro, OR on September 5, 2010
"Better than coffee, yet so similar that it would fool me if I didn't make it myself. Makes an amazing latte too. I doubled the grounds in a French press and added whpped warm vanilla soy milk for a latte that is the best I ever made at home (and I have a lot of practice).
I am recommending this to my coffee loving friends. "

"Teeccino herbal coffee has the same taste and kick that real coffee does except without the acidity and caffeine. Where caffeine gives you a spike in energy then a crash, teeccino gives you a more progressive lift that lasts for hours without the sudden crash. I reccommend this product to anyone looking to get away from caffiene!"

"I had to quit drinking coffee a year ago because of side effects of caffeine that were becoming increasingly more bothersome. I went without any hot beverage for an entire year except for herbal teas. When I tried a sample of the Teeccino hazelnut, I couldn't believe my tastebuds! It tasted so much like my beloved hazelnut coffee that I used to drink at Panera, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!! But this is so much better. It has none of the acidity of coffee and all of the flavor! And none of the bothersome side effects! Thank you, Caroline, for this wonderful product. You have a customer for life."
By: Diane from Springdale, AR US on January 18, 2017
"I drink it everyday, be it winter or summer. However I am apt to drink more of it on those COLD winter mornings. When I used to drink coffee I needed to add both sweetener & milk, however to Hazelnut Teeccino I add only sweetener (milk's not needed & saves me calories!). Ever since I was in my teens I have favored organic products as this is. I've been drinking it for over a year now & have NO plans of changing. My sister drinks another caffeine-free coffee substitute for religious reasons, but I do not like what she drinks, so it is Teeccino for me! "
By: JoAnn Miller from Hubbard, OH US on January 14, 2017
"Thank you so much for your product! I am enjoying Teeccino as a coffee alternative, as I love the taste of coffee, but can't have the caffeine & won't drink anything decaffeinated. I especially like the Hazelnut flavor. It is my favorite above all the others, although I like them all, but Hazelnut is my favorite! Thank you."
By: Lyn from Trinity, FL US on September 8, 2016
"I had to stop drinking coffee once I was diagnosed with IC. I struggled for months to find a warm drink similar to coffee with no luck. Once I heard about Teeccino, I tried it and loved it! I love the Vanilla Nut, but the Hazelnut is my favorite. I add a little cinnamon creamer to it and it tastes just like my coffee! "
By: TTMcc from Springdale, AR US on July 4, 2016
"I love the 5lb bag and have been drinking it for years. It lasts for a long time so you aren't frequently running out of coffee & ordering more. I also love the taste of Hazelnut. It fools me into thinking it is the real coffee, so I don't mind at all not being able to have caffeine. It is especially good in the winter when a mug of it it keeps me WARM :-) . I give it my complete 5-star stamp of approval! "
By: VMantler from Victoria, US on May 5, 2016
"Best product EVER. I got a sample from a friend and fell in love. I am actually a tea drinker, love the smell of coffee but can't stand the taste, however, I like it strong and rich so I usually use 2 -3 bags. One bag of this is exactly that, the taste is so good I actually ordered online, I've never ordered anything online before, this was absolutely worth it. Regular tea just can't cut it anymore! I've tried the Hazelnut, Chai, Vanilla and French Roast and they are all fantastic."

By: Teeccino Addict from Kaneohe, HI US on June 20, 2014
"This is one of my favorite flavors. I add a pinch of brown sugar and half/half. Love the flavor of coffee but had to stop drinking due to becoming caffeine sensitive and having acid reflux. I am so grateful for this product. Love the tee bags because I can take with me when I travel or go to restaurants. I wonder what a coconut flavor teeccino would taste like???

"Okay, so I love coffee and I love flavored coffee. I know that coffee is very acidic which is not great for bone health and I know that flavored coffees are created in a lab so I stopped buying them. I use a french press and use 2 scoops of organic coffee and 3 scoops of Teeccino and I get a great mug of what looks like coffee and tastes very much like flavored coffee. I love it. I have two picky picky friends who didn't love it but they've got bad taste in food and drink and willingly ingest garbage. I add a broken-up cinnamon stick to the grounds and sometimes cocoa powder. It's just delightful. Next up in the rotation is the Southern Pecan 5-pound bag. I'll let y'all know how I perceive the difference."

"In winter months, I like to have something warm to sip while I work. And though I prefer white tea in the mornings, I find myself wanting some "coffee" in the afternoons.
Teecino Hazelnut suits this need perfectly - I take it w/ Eden Soymilk and stevia - a caffeine free, guilt free drink!!"

"I can't say enough about all the flavors. I am so happy I can drink coffee again! I went a year of not drinking coffee after I was told by my doctor no caffeine. It was a tough year, but then I discovered Teeccino and have recommended it to everyone I know! I am not sacrificing the coffee flavor or taste and still get a nice hot cup of coffee in the morning! Thank you Teeccino!! :)"

"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."
By: Linda from Greenville, TX on April 15, 2012
"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!!??"

"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."
By: Melanie from Nashville, TN on March 13, 2011
"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 :)"
