Alkaline Balance: Myths and Reality


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

Frequently we’re asked, “What’s the pH of Teeccino?” People are confused because we know that Teeccino is alkaline for the body, but if brewed Teeccino is tested with a simple pH strip, you get varying results.

The difference starts with the pH of the water used to brew. Alkaline waters are very popular these days, but some are made artificially alkaline and others are naturally alkaline. What’s the difference? The same thing that makes Teeccino alkaline regardless of the water’s pH: the presence of alkaline minerals provided by nature. Read More

Teeccino @ Bhakti Fest 2017


Written by: Melissa Russell

We’ve done it again! Another successful Bhakti Festival under our belt. With staggering amounts of workshops and lectures, yoga classes and keratin music we were there to assist a community of mindful people from all over the world. Being that this festival was a 100% meat, drug and alcohol-free, we were there every step of the way to hydrate and refuel the attendees, keeping them feeling their best as they endure the long hours of practice and devotion.

As always we had hot airpots of Teeccino, featuring our new Dandelion Super Herb Teas that we recently launched this year. The Dandelion Turmeric was a hit and aided to a lot of score muscles from extensive stretching and yoga and classes. We also brought 2 kegerators this year, serving our delicious, velvety smooth Tea Nitro, that has cascading vitality in every pour. One of the crowds favorite was our fruity Hibiscus Blackberry, known to lower your blood pressure and is high in vitamin C, this drink was very popular in the hot 100 degree temperature of the day. 

We also had TeeChia, our sustaining superseed cereal. We donated product for their cafeteria as well as sampled and sold bowls of it out of our booth all day long. With 6 superseeds, dried fruit and gluten free rolled oats, everyone appreciated the lack of sugar and high energy they received from it. 

 We saw a lot of familiar faces plus we got to meet and educate many new ones. Thank you all again for your support and devotion not only to your practice, but to Teeccino! Can’t wait to see you next year, same place, same time. 

Red Tea, The Fermented, Caffeine-Free Super Herb Tea


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

Rooibos Flowers

As my followers know, I’m a huge advocate of getting as many herbs into your diet as possible. Where else can we find a wide biodiversity of unique phyto (plant) nutrients completely unchanged from those consumed by our hunting and gathering prehistoric ancestors? We need our super herbs to protect our health more than ever in this era of toxins polluting our air, water and food!

Let’s take a deep dive into an herb that is so unique, it grows only on the tip of South Africa and even there, only in one small region called Clan William. It’s also the only herbal tea that goes through a fermentation process similar to black tea, which turns its green needles to a deep shade of rusty red.

It also happens to be an herb with which I’m intimately familiar. Back in the late ‘90’s, I brought it to the United State’s tea drinking world after it had been forgotten due to the ban on importing S. African products during Apartheid.

We’re talking about rooibos (pronounced ROY-e-boss), the red tea. Here’s the story about this super herb tea that is the base of the best caffeine-free chai teas including Teeccino Dandelion Red Chai!

Barbara’s Been Recruiting Carpenters…and Coffee Shops!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

Barbara just got started as a Teeccino Ambassador, and has been making many new Teeccino fans already! She sent us great pics of a fellow coffee-shop goer where she shared Teeccino during a meeting – and two new Teeccino fans from her construction crew! She told us about sharing Teeccino at the coffee shop –

“Sharing a picture from a recent meeting where I passed out Teeccino samples. The cafe owner let me leave a dozen samples next to their cash register. But he wouldn’t let me take his picture with the samples because he’s an avid coffee drinker…”

Then a simple message with a pic of her contractors…

“Recruiting carpenters from coffee to Teeccino lovers…👌🏽”

Turmeric – Taming The Flame


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

What turns everything bright yellow, is an essential spice in Indian dishes and is reputed by the ancients to heal everything you can think of? Yes, that would be turmeric, the spice that is turning up in a wide range of natural food products from supplements to chips!

I like to take a deep dive into the science below the hype to get to the truth about the health benefits one can realistically expect to get from an herb. Often studies in humans are hard to find because they’re both complex and expensive to perform. But with turmeric, there are thousands of years of traditional use as well as numerous recent animal and human studies that support its reputation as a ‘super herb’.

If you’re interested in knowing why I chose to create Teeccino Dandelion Turmeric for your enjoyment, read on about how turmeric can enhance your health Read More

Lauren’s Coaching Clients Love Teeccino!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

Lauren Bahr, Holistic Health Coach

Lauren is a longtime Teeccino Ambassador and IIN alumni who recently held an event for her new health coaching business, and shared Teeccino Tee-bags with everyone! She told us all about the big day –

“I hosted an open house to launch my new Women’s Health and Wellness Business, Simply Balanced Wellness. I offer physical therapy and holistic health coaching. I gave each person that attended a small thank you goodie bag to take home with my business card, organic dark chocolate and a Teeccino sample. It was over 100’F out the evening of my event so serving a hot beverage did not seem wise. I have heard back from a few people that they have enjoyed the sample. ALSO, I am sharing Teeccino with all of my health coaching clients. They are LOVING having a tasty beverage option that is sweet, yet healthy! And it does not have the negative effects of caffeine or sugar.”
