Teeccino Herbal Coffee Review
Today I have a drink review for you: Teeccino Herbal Coffee.
Writing my third book, I got into the bad habit of drinking multiple cups of coffee each day. After feeling jittery one too many times, I found myself craving the coffee taste but not wanting all of the caffeine. I did some research online and found Teeccino herbal coffee alternative. I decided to try it for myself and purchased their Vanilla Nut brew from a local health food store. What a pleasant surprise!
This drink is delicious and provides that same warm, robust drink experience I enjoy when drinking coffee.
What does an herbal coffee contain? The ingredients in the Vanilla Nut flavor are: carob, barley, chicory root, date & figs, almonds and other natural flavors. I love drinking mine with a coconut or almond milk creamer. Or I might drink it with milk and coconut sugar.
You brew teeccino just as you would coffee, just using slightly less than you normally would as the flavors are very strong. Use a traditional coffee brewer, french press or espresso machine. They also have tea bags that I like to take with me when I travel or for when I don't want to brew an entire pot. I love the Dandelion Caramel Nut flavor, which contains: dates & figs, almond, dandelion root and natural caramel and nut flavors.
Here are the listed health benefits, from Teeccino's website:
Every cup of Teeccino is brimming with nutritious health benefits that are naturally released during brewing from Teeccino’s herbs, grains, fruits and nuts. These nutrients are quickly absorbable from brewed Teeccino because the nutrients are suspended in liquid so digestion isn’t needed to remove them from fiber.
In many ways, Teeccino rebalances the negative effects of coffee. For instance, Teeccino is excellent for people with digestive health conditions because it is non-acidic and contains the prebiotic, inulin. Inulin is a soluble fiber from chicory root that supports a healthy population of beneficial digestive flora, so necessary for good digestive health.
Coffee, on the other hand, is highly acidic and along with its caffeine content, coffee can over-stimulate the digestive tract aggravating health problems for people with gastrointestinal conditions like acid reflux and IBS.
Another example is heart health. Teeccino provides two heart-healthy nutrients, potassium, an electrolyte mineral, and soluble fiber. Potassium helps prevent strokes and high blood pressure. Soluble fiber lowers total cholesterol. Drinking several cups of Teeccino daily provides nutrients that support good cardiovascular health.
Caffeine, however, is a central nervous stimulant that makes the heart beat faster and can increase blood pressure. Coffee drinking has been shown to increase blood pressure in sensitive individuals. Caffeine’s effect on heart beats can stress the heart in people who have heart conditions. Decaf coffee has been shown to raise cholesterol and produce the “jitters” even though it has less caffeine than regular coffee.
Like any drug, caffeine withdrawal can cause many undesirable symptoms such as headaches, irritability, and nausea. Slowly weaning oneself off coffee by mixing Teeccino into your morning brew, and increasing the ratio of Teeccino to coffee for 3 weeks, has proven a successful plan to quit coffee, while still enjoying the taste of coffee, with little or no withdrawal symptoms!
Energy is the reason why many people drink coffee. With Teeccino, people experience an energy boost that comes from nutrients, not stimulants like caffeine. A cup of Teeccino keeps energy steady and balanced, but won’t provide that spike and subsequent crash that you can experience from too much coffee. Although many people drink coffee to get “energy”, they are really putting themselves in a state called “flight or fight syndrome”, which is a stress response that triggers alertness along with a host of stress reactions throughout the body. Getting off of the caffeine rollercoaster ride of sudden highs followed by lows in energy is one of the benefits of drinking Teeccino!

These herbal coffee alternatives would be wonderful for pregnant or nursing women or anyone who is trying to kick their caffeine addiction. They are also great for people who love a good coffee after dinner but don't want the drink to interfere with their sleep.
I have purchased Teeccino from both Sprout's Market and Whole Foods, but they are also available from Amazon and other online retailers, including teeccino.com
Teccino Vanilla Nut on Amazon.
Dandelion caramel nut on Amazon.

I'm enjoying watching these You Tube videos. Although this was posted a year ago, I would like to comment on this topic of Dressing Well. I find that when I have carefully selected my clothing and gotten ready for the day, I don't need to think about myself from that point on. I can engage with the people that I am with that day and be "fully there" with them. I love the freedom that this brings.
Great point Linda! When we look presentable, we feel presentable as well and we are able to focus fully on the important things of the day without feeling self-conscious.

Take time out of your busy day to enjoy a favorite beverage. It could be a hot cup of coffee (or herbal coffee!), a sweet iced tea or whatever drink you love. While you enjoy your drink, look out the window, sit on your shady porch or simply sit in your living room and take in your surroundings. No phones. No TVs. Not even any books. Just enjoy your drink until it's finished. This time for quiet reflection is so needed throughout our wired, fast-paced day.
This week I would love to know... have you ever tried Teeccino? What are your favorite coffee alternatives? How do you like to drink your coffee?
