drank Vanilla Nut by Teeccino
1134 tasting notes

I went caffeine-free due to tummy issues so no coffee, black tea, white tea or green tea anymore. I have switched to decaf coffee which does still have a tad bit of caffeine and isn’t the best, depending on what the filtration process consists of for each brand so I’m always looking for the next best thing and two people I know recommended this.
I picked up a box yesterday and chose the Vanilla Nut flavour (there were many to choose from) and I have to say, I’m impressed!
I made it my morning cup and it really is a decent replacement for coffee as evidenced by the fact that I feel satisfied.
It’s roasty, nutty, rich, not too strong, not too weak and with my Silk Almond French Vanilla Coffee Creamer, this is just perfect!
A big bonus is that this has actual health benefits with ingredients that are good for you.
Thoroughly enjoyed and will 100% re-purchase.

Flavors: Nutty, Rich, Roasty, Vanilla

I love the Teeccino blends! I wonder if you can drink the Lupicia low caff/no caff teas? Cerisier doesn’t keep me up at night even though it is a very low caffeine option rather than a no caffeine option.

I hope you find lots and lots of good things to enjoy! Green rooibos or honeybush blends can also be really nice.

Jason

Thank-you ashmanra! It’s been a struggle! haha 7 months now, of tummy troubles. My doc is finally on it, I have a colonoscopy and an endoscopy this upcoming Thursday. Not looking forward to it (for obvious reasons lol) but I am looking forward to finding out what’s going on so I can have some kind of treatment for it. Thanks for your recommendations, really appreciate it!

drank Chocolate Mint by Teeccino
4081 tasting notes

This had a crazy strong peppermint smell in the pouch, I assume because it contains peppermint oil.

It’s pretty potent in taste as well, but not over-the-top. The mint is definitely the starring flavor, but I do get some of the chocolate as well. With a bit of oat milk, it’s like a less-sweet peppermint dark hot chocolate. I will say the coffee element is a bit light, maybe because the mint is so strong, but I don’t really mind.

I could see myself enjoying this around the holidays especially, maybe I’ll pick some up closer to winter.

Flavors: Cocoa, Dark Chocolate, Mint, Peppermint, Roasted, Sweet, Toasty

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Caramel Nut by Teeccino
4081 tasting notes

I recently ordered a bunch of Teeccino samples. I’m not a big coffee drinker, though I do have a cold brew with oat milk every morning. But I had heard multiple people rave about Teeccino around these parts, so I had to give it a go. Unfortunately my grocery store only seems to carry the dandelion line, so naturally I had to go overboard on their website (heh heh) and order 10 different flavors to try.

I’ve had the Mocha and this Caramel Nut, and overall I really like them. I will say this particular one is a bit too “flavory” for me, but then again I tend to not love caramel-flavored things. Real actual caramel sauce, yes, but caramel flavoring not so much.

Regardless, still very tasty as a warm cuppa with oat milk. Roasty and toasty but not too much so (I’m a light roast gal), and the dried fruit sweetness doesn’t taste weird, like natural sweeteners often do. Looking forward to trying some more flavors!

Flavors: Almond, Artificial, Butter, Caramel, Coffee, Nutty, Pecan, Roasted, Roasted Nuts, Smooth, Sweet, Toasted

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank French Vanilla by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

I taste a bit of vanilla, but this one was pretty mild. It was pleasant, but I prefer other more interesting flavor profiles.

gmathis

I haven’t Teeccino’ed in a while. Need to remedy that!

AJRimmer

I have a large bag of the snickerdoodle flavor, which I’ve been working my way through mostly!

ashmanra

I don’t think I have tried French Vanilla. I am currently out of Teeccino but will likely buy one or two this fall.

drank Mocha by Teeccino
16045 tasting notes

Sipdown (2527)!

Tastes very much like what you’d expect. That typical, highly roasted and dark profile with notes of chicory, date, carob, and barley. Very typical Teeccino composition. Just has a little bit of a sweeter finish with a chocolate-y note. More that chocolate liqueur vibe, but not quite so artificial. Very complimentary. I really enjoyed it.

drank Dark Chocolate by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

This tea had more bitterness than I would prefer. The flavor profile also ended up a little simple for me. I wouldn’t choose this one again, which is fine since Teeccino has so many flavors that are repeat buys for me!

drank Dandelion Red Chai by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

I wouldn’t call this spiced enough to be a chai, but it wasn’t bad! The base wasn’t too acidic either. It was nice with almond milk, but I couldn’t taste much spice content, just a little.

drank Dandelion Mocha Mint by Teeccino

I taste a good amount of mint! It’s bright and tasty, and the base is pleasant too. The resteep was also nicely minty.

drank Mocha by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

This is nice! It’s subtler than I expected, but mocha seems like an accurate flavor profile. The base was mild, and the flavoring worked well with it. The resteep was super tasty!

drank Dandelion Dark Roast by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

This one was too bitter for me. With lots of sugar and almond milk, it was decent, but it needed too much help. And I prefer the fun flavors rather than just the basics. This one is apparently supposed to taste like black coffee, and I was never a coffee fan, so it’s not the tea’s fault!

drank Tremella Tulsi by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

This is from last year’s advent calendar. I certainly wouldn’t have chosen a tulsi blend myself. I just don’t get it. It’s so herbaceous and doesn’t go with the coffee flavor. It’s drinkable, but really not a great combination.

drank Snickerdoodle by Teeccino
961 tasting notes

AJRimmer Advent Day 22

I have several friends who LOVE Teeccino and I have never understood it. Maybe you have to be a coffee drinker to “get” it? The roasted chicory flavor is just unpleasantly bitter to me and tends to overwhelm whatever other flavor is present in the blend. This one was no exception. I got a hint of cinnamon, but nothing that was reading “cookie” to my taste.

Flavors: Bitter, Chicory, Cinnamon, Roasted

This is supposed to be butterscotch cream flavor, and I wish I could taste that! The base is mild (or maybe I’m just used to it now). On top of that, I noticed something a bit desserty, but nothing so decadent as butterscotch cream. I recently reordered a few favorites from Teeccino, and this one didn’t make the list.

Ha I have no idea what the name of this tea means, but I’m still working on the advent calendar from last year, and this was next. I definitely prefer the more desserty Teeccino flavors. This one is a little herbaceous, but still not bad.

Dustin

Cordyceps is a term for fungus, schisandra might be a type, then mushroom incase you didn’t get the cordyceps part and last adaptogen which seems like the new health food hot word like antioxidant once was, but this one has to do with relieving stress. It’s not a name that would sell me on a tea! LOL!

Roswell Strange

Schisandra is an adaptogenic berry – has a more tart/sour flavour. Dustin’s spot on with cordyceps being a mushroom – the one that caused the zombie outbreak in The Last of Us, actually.

gmathis

Schisandra sounds like somebody sneezing! (Sorry, just had to say it!)

ashmanra

Or – hear me out gmathis – like someone summoning a cartoon superhero while slamming their rings together. Anybody else familiar with the cartoon SHAZAN and no I do not mean Shazam. Ashman was so confused the first time I brought it up because somehow he missed that one in childhood.

gmathis

I might have missed that one, too. (If it came on opposite from Sigmund and the Sea Monsters or Lidsville, that explains it.)

ashmanra

There should be two z’s in Shazzan, my bad. The camel’s name was Kaboobie. Yes, there was a camel. If I remember correctly, it was a flying camel. It’s been a long time….

Dustin

If this tea’s name had “zombie” or “flying camel” in it, it would have grabbed my attention for sure!

I didn’t expect a lot from this one based on the name, but it’s actually quite tasty. The base isn’t overly strong, and it’s mildly desserty on top of that. Maybe I taste a bit of vanilla. The resteep was almost as tasty as the first.

drank Almond Amaretto by Teeccino
452 tasting notes

I have tried this in tea bag and in loose leaf form and I like to over leaf it so its a strong cup of amaretto. There’s enough date juice in here to make it sweet, and I like this as a caffeinated alternative. It is a bit boozy tasting, would probably make a good mocktail. This is something I expect to keep stocked in my cupboard.

Flavors: Amaretto, Chicory, Dates

drank Hazelnut by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

The base is mild, but desserty. It’s quite nutty, though I can’t tell it’s hazelnut in particular. I’m glad since I’m not really a hazelnut fan. This one is definitely similar to other flavors but I love the nuttiness!

drank Macadamia Nut by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

I’ve never had a plain macadamia nut, so I’m just thinking of white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, and this tastes familiar. The coffee base is pretty mild again, mostly I just taste the flavoring that I suppose is nutty. It’s nice, though not super memorable.

drank Mango Lemon Balm by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

This is much nicer than I would have guessed. The lemon and mango do actually work with the mild coffee base. I enjoy this with soy milk. The mango is mild, but it’s a really fun note.

drank Mocha by Teeccino
1233 tasting notes

This is the last of the three flavors of Teeccino available in my local grocery store (as grounds). I’ve had it hot a handful of times, but mostly I throw two scoops of grounds into a fillable teabag and cold steep it overnight for coldbrew “coffee.”

I’m having a hard time finding this one any different than the Hazelnut I tried last time. Maybe that is due to my brain having a strong hazelnut-to-chocolate association because I’m an eat-Nutella-straight-from-the-jar sort of person, but I’m getting the same roasted coffee flavor, nuttiness, and really dark and bittersweet chocolate. If I had them side-by-side, maybe one leans stronger on the nuttiness and the other on the bittersweet chocolate, but all-in-all they taste “samey” enough to me to not really have a preference of one over the other.

Flavors: Coffee, Dark Bittersweet, Dark Chocolate, Nutty, Roasted, Thick

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 2 tsp 32 OZ / 946 ML
ashmanra

I agree about “samey”. I think this is the only one I will most likely keep on hand.

drank Vanilla Nut by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

The base was mild and supported the added flavors well. It tastes quite desserty and nice with some almond milk. I’d consider getting more of this one. The resteep tasted exactly like the first.

drank Dandelion Coconut by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

I’m not a coconut fan, but I actually love the flavor they accomplished here. The coconut is light, but it blends perfectly with this base. The base is lighter and more enjoyable than some of the other Teeccino teas as well. The flavor is so desserty, and the second steep tasted just like the first. I’d consider buying a larger amount next time!

Michelle

This is one of my favorites from them. The coconut doesn’t disappoint!

drank Dark Chocolate by Teeccino
1889 tasting notes

The TTB has arrived! So big, so many teas… no chance to try them all!
Tea #13

Well, I just saw a tea bag of this and I knew I have to try it. All the hype about Teeccino here, I just wonder if it is that good or… what it is about.

Yes, even dry bag smells lovely and full of chocolate. When I put it to the hot water, it started to color it so fast… and after 4 minutes it was so dark… and hot chocolate aroma was wafting through the room. I let my brother smell and taste it and he said: “Well, the aroma is great, indeed hot chocolate like. But the taste is… not that good. A cheap chocolate, maybe like chocolate toppings without the sugar added.”

I agree with him, it highly reminds me Hershey’s chocolate syrup minus the sugar. A little bitter too. But mouthfeel is great and while I won’t drink this daily if I had the chance, I would be happy to keep a few in the cupboard for chocolate cravings or/and for guests, who would like to drink hot chocolate — tea.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML
ashmanra

I haven’t tried this flavor, but I just made ice cream with the mocha flavor one!

gmathis

This is great with milk.

Martin Bednář

Definitely I can see why it is great with milk. Maybe once I will get lucky to try more of it. And then, I will try that.

drank French Roast by Teeccino
2380 tasting notes

I would have guessed this had vanilla, but apparently it doesn’t. Ha maybe that’s my vanilla almond milk talking. This flavor is quite desserty and tasty! The base isn’t as harsh as in some of the other flavors. It’s straightforward, but smooth and tasty, especially as it cools to room temperature.

gmathis

I like this one, too!
