A Virtual Visit to Rancho La Puerta Destination Retreat Center


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

Rancho La Puerta Garden PathI couldn’t have found a better place to recover from the massive energy output demanded by our annual natural products trade show than a quick trip across the border to Rancho La Puerta, the renowned destination wellness center in Mexico. Originally inspired as a health retreat in June 1940 by its visionary founders, Debra and Edmund Szekely, the family has created a true health oasis in Tecate, Mexico. Read More

Bridget Brews Up Teeccino for her Healthy Food Group!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

healthfoodTeeccinoBridget has been a Teeccino Ambassador since June of 2013, and recently brewed Teeccino at another Ambassador event with her ‘Healthy Food Group’. She told us all about it in her official event report:

“I made the the Vanilla Nut, Hazelnut, and French Roast flavors at my regular Healthy Food Group get together. Everyone loved the way it smelled, especially the Vanilla Nut. They responded with, “It’s good.” Here again I’m dealing with coffee drinkers, but they were certainly more open to the idea than my last group! I gave them some extra samples of the other flavors and coupons.  Maybe some new Teeccino drinkers?”

We know it can be hard to convince certain coffee-lovers that there is a time for Teeccino (afternoons and evenings for a break from caffeine), and we love that you are out there doing it, Bridget! We also like how you wrapped up your report -

“I have my boxful of samples that you sent me and anytime the opportunity presents itself, I’m making Teeccino for someone who hasn’t tried it. When it gets warmer, I intend to make iced Teeccino to share.”

Great idea on the iced Teeccino, Bridget…and we so appreciate you sharing your favorite herbal coffee and sending us this fantastic report. We’ll be very happy to send you more samples anytime!

Teeccino Ambassadors is a program where our most dedicated fans sign-up to be Ambassadors, and can make requests for samples to share at their local neighborhood events. We’ve supported so many different types of Ambassador events…from book clubs, office lunches and sci-fi conventions…to health fairs, holiday parties and church events!   We now have over 100 Teeccino Ambassadors active around the country.  The best news is, the program is still open to new Ambassadors!  It’s easy to join by taking a quick survey and watching our online Webinar – a history of Teeccino and info on its many health benefits, hosted by our CEO Caroline MacDougall. Once you’ve watched the Webinar, you can request samples online!

 

Kelli’s Co-Op with Teeccino Tee-bags!

Kelli recently became a Teeccino Ambassador and hosted her first event just a few weeks later for about 30 people at a homeschool event. Kelli was kind enough to send us her report directly after the gathering.  She told us:

“It was a homeschool co-op event. I had set up a table with hot water in a thermos and laid out the brochures with samples, coupons and the info sheet. Folks helped themselves. When I noticed someone at the table, I went over to explain Teeccino. One lady had tried the Hazelnut but then had accidentally added maple syrup to it so she said that kind of skewed the taste to where she tasted the maple more-so. I told her to take another sample home to try later if she liked. Another lady said she had already had too much caffeine and was looking for something hot but decaf, so she picked out a chocolate flavor to try.”

Thank you, Kelli!  We always love hearing about the varied and positive feedback our Ambassadors receive at their events. And it is true, especially with our Mediterranean flavors that contain roasted figs and dates in the blend, sweetener is usually not needed. We think it’s great you had extra samples to send home with the attendees. We will be glad to support any of your future events and will love to hear how they go!

Carmen Serves up a Cuppa Teeccino at Her Salon!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

salonsharesTeeccinoCarmen became a Teeccino Ambassador in February with plans to share Teeccino at her salon, Ginger Group, in Michigan.  Her first event went well and she sent us a report last week. Carmen told us:

“We have what we call Super Saturday once a month, offering discounts on products or specials on services. This last Super Saturday was a very heavy snow day so it kept the crowd down, however we did a sampling of Teeccino and it was well accepted and enjoyed. Most questions werewhere can I purchase it’, some clients prefer not to shop on-line. Non-coffee drinkers liked it and some of the heavy coffee drinkers will need more time. We are keeping the signs up and offering it via the Krug coffee maker for any one that wishes until we are out of product. It’s a product I would have in the Salon if we get clients requesting it. All the staff liked it and a couple prefer it over coffee or tea.”

It sounds like a wonderful venue for your clients to chat and taste Teeccino, Carmen!  Thank you for becoming a Teeccino Ambassador and making our product available to your clientele.  We’ll be happy to support your future events!

New TeeChia Packaging & Sweetness


Written by: Caroline MacDougall


New 6-serving bags

I’m happy to announce that after a year of testing TeeChia by serving it to thousands of people at events and selling it in a selection of local Whole Foods and independent natural food stores, we are finally launching TeeChia into distribution in the natural foods marketplace in April. First, we’re rolling it out to the western half of the U.S. By the fall, it will also be available in the East. Please request TeeChia at your favorite natural food store to help us get it on the shelf!

We learned so much from everyone’s responses as well as from the reality of selling TeeChia on the retail shelf. Here’s what we discovered that guided our development of TeeChia’s beautiful new package design and new sweeter flavor: Read More
