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 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."

"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!"

"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."

"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!"

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...
Dandelion root is popular in modern cleansing and detox diets due to its reputation for stimulating the liver and bile. It has a long history of use as a coffee alternative.
