Frances is Telling Teachers About Teeccino!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

Teeccino Ambassador Frances

These teachers are into Teeccino!

Frances recently became a Teeccino Ambassador after learning about our Ambassador program and watching our online Webinar. Frances just did her first event at a meeting with other teachers at her school in southern California. She told us in her report –

“I was able to share the Tee-bag samples with about 40+ of my fellow teachers. Woohoo!!! They loved hearing about this healthy, yummy alternative and receiving some samples to brew at home. Since the event on Tuesday, I’ve heard great feedback from at least five other teachers.”

“I’m super excited to share with them again and have the sample brew available. I had such a fun experience sharing the treasure of Teeccino, I can’t wait to have another event. I especially appreciate your amazing support and generosity.”

We are SO glad to hear it, Frances! Thank you so much for sharing Teeccino with your fellow teachers, and sending us SUCH a super photo from your event!

Are GMOs Toxic?


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

This month I took my 91 year old mother to visit a cousin we hadn’t seen for 40 years. Wow – the last time I saw her I had just started my first job at Celestial Seasonings and I was traveling the West coast in a Volkswagen bus gaily painted with thunderbolts striking teacups and roosters crowing at dawn. It was way before anyone ever thought about Genetically Modified Organisms, but that’s all I could think about on my way to her home in rural Illinois!

Teeccino Are GMO's Toxic?Naïve Californian that I am, I can’t express my amazement at how massive the acreage is of GMO corn and GMO soybeans in this country’s “bread basket”. Talk about mono-cropping and destroying nature’s diversity! Miles and miles whizzed by and all the eye could see was row upon row of GMO plants grown for … yes … animal feed and high fructose corn syrup!

Now there’s a new study that that reveals that the known carcinogen, formaldehyde, builds up in GMO soybeans. Plus it shows a massive decrease in GMO soy’s glutathione, the antioxidant responsible for keeping our cells detoxified. Yikes!

Did you know that the US Congress passed the DARK act just a few weeks ago? Dubbed the “Deny Americans The Right To Know” Act, it will prevent states from requiring labeling of GMOs. Now the fight for our right to know what’s in our food has shifted to the Senate and I encourage all of you to write your senators to vote against it! Read More

Stephanie of Chattanooga, Tennessee has been an amazing Teeccino Ambassador since she started in February of this year. She’s been doing carefully planned events of all kinds, like a Valentine’s Day Teeccino Tasting. She sent us her report about her most recent opportunity to share Teeccino – and told us how it went:

“The student orientation was quite successful. All of the new Bachelors and Masters students were treated to a department breakfast. The beverages included orange juice, three types of coffee and Teeccino.  At the end of the day, all the Teeccino was gone and only the coffee remained! Students and teachers chose Teeccino!”

It sounds like you are really ‘warming up’ your campus to Teecccino, Stephanie! We appreciate it so much, and we look forward to supporting your future events!

Rising Star Dani-elle is Singing Teeccino’s Praises!

Even though she’s just 19 years old, Dani-elle is a veteran Nashville performing and recording artist and singer/songwriter whose band recently opened for Darius Rucker and soon – for Luke Bryan. Dani-elle and her band are playing at multiple venues in Nashville, and due to the success of her single “Bye, Bye, Bye” even played at CMA Fest with an audience of over 90,000 people. 

Dani-elle has been touring with her band a lot, but she still finds time to do a little natural food store shopping to discover great products that support her health and energy when performing night after night! Here’s what she had to say about how she discovered Teeccino:

“We were introduced to Teeccino at a local Natural Store here in Pennsylvania. My Mom and I were out shopping and were out of coffee. We saw the new brand and decided we would try it, not realizing there was a difference between coffee and Teeccino. So we took it home, and literally fell in love with this ‘coffee’ the first sip we tasted. My Mom finally said, “I have to see what is in this,” and to our surprise it was all natural, which made it even better!! We always love to find a good healthy alternative. So we went on to share with our friends and family who loved it as well. Even my Dad, who is very picky, LOVES it. I went on to share with my band, who are all very natural and health alternative guys, and they love it as well. My whole team likes it – even my head of security!” Read More

pumpkinspiceTeeccinoGretchen became a Teeccino Ambassador in May of this year by watching our online Teeccino Ambassador Webinar, and recently did her first event at a party at her home. Gretchen told us in her report:

“It was a small gathering of friends and family. They all seemed to like Teeccino, especially the flavored ones. Besides the samples you sent, I also included some from my stash of the Boutique flavors. They liked the flavors the most (Pumpkin Spice, Mocha, Hazelnut, Chocolate Mint). They pretty much liked all the ones with a flavor to them…my favorites are Pumpkin Spice and Mocha.”

That’s wonderful, Gretchen! We are so pleased to hear how much your guests enjoyed the Teeccino flavors from our Boutique and Mediterranean lines. We are so glad you became a Teeccino Ambassador and will be happy to support your future events!

Kisha, also known as Fit with K, a certified Health & Wellness Coach & Educator, has done a number of Ambassador events and recently provided her Hygienist, Brenda, with Teeccino to enjoy during her 42nd Family Reunion (a 3 day event)! Kisha told us:

“Brenda’s husband ended up enjoying the taste before she did; eventually she got around to tasting it herself and then introduced to her mother. Now the entire family was able to experience the great taste of Teeccino as well.”

Kisha closed out her report, saying:

“Ramona, the President of this year’s family reunion is seen here chilling in her room with some family members showcasing Teeccino at the Family Reunion.  She, among many other family members, enjoyed being introduced to the benefits that Teeccino had to offer and will be attempting to add it to their monthly regime.”

Brenda also told me,“Coffee is one of those things that is hard to get away from, but this alternative is one that can make doing so a bit easier with time.”
