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!
Teresa is a very active Teeccino Ambassador who has been featured on TeeccinoBuzz a few times already since she joined our program earlier this year. Her beach party and World Gym event are two great examples of what a Teeccino Ambassador event can be. This time, Teresa got into the holiday spirit (oh she did!) and shared her latest story with us:
“We had a cookie exchange, so I thought that was the perfect pairing for this festive event. It was a very chilly day outside which makes a warm beverage even more desirable. The event was for adults and kiddos. I had some avid die hard coffee drinkers so my christmas tree was decorated with the samples hanging from mini clothes pins. The guests were so excited to hear about the benefits of Teeccino and that it was caffeine-free. Such a wonderful day to share my love for this company.”
Thank you, Teresa! We loved your report and the pics – WOW! It makes us so happy that you are enjoying being an Ambassador so much. Your enthusiasm is wonderful to watch, and it’s contagious! We can’t wait to support your next event.

Caroline in front of New Age Natural Foods circa 1972
The year was 1968. I was a teenager visiting Aspen, Colorado for the summer and I found myself in one of the very first natural food stores in the country. Well, if you can call it a store. It really was just a storage shed filled with barrels of bulk grains that an enterprising hippie had set up to sell whole foods without packaging. I know bulk foods don’t sound too revolutionary now, but let me tell you, there wasn’t anything anywhere like it then.
2015 will go down in history as the year the natural foods movement turned the tide on Big Food’s chemical, mass produced “frankenfoods”. One big company after another is rushing to announce the removal of artificial colors and flavors, food additives and drugs from their products. From fast food giants like McDonalds, who has promised to buy antibiotic-free chicken and added kale to its salads, along with Subway and Panera Bread, fast food menus are being reformed towards healthier ingredients. Sagging sales at Kellogg’s, Kraft, and Nestles, to name just a few, has caused these giant food companies to pivot towards clean, healthy labels. Why? Because their customers are voting with their dollars and they’ve gotten the message at last!
For someone like myself who has been part of this movement since its early days, it’s really stunning to see this change happening so rapidly at last. I invite you to take a trip with me back in time, to see how we got here! Read More
Candace is a doula and a longtime Teeccino Ambassador who recently helped support an event with Pike’s Peak Doula Association (PPRDA) at Babies R Us. Candace has shared Teeccino with her own clientele and at other baby fairs, like this baby fair at the army base in June 2013! About this recent event, Candace told us:
“It was a Baby Fair at Babies R Us and all the vendor tables were spread out on the merchandise floor. Our booth/table was the biggest display so we attracted many expecting parents. The majority of attendees had not heard about herbal coffee and they were excited to try it out, especially hearing that it was safe for pregnancy!”
Wonderful, Candace! Thank you so much for all you do to champion Teeccino and the photo you sent of one of your colleagues, VP of Pike’s Peak Doula Association…we appreciate it!. With many testimonials on our site like the Quimby’s (right) about drinking Teeccino during pregnancy, we are thrilled that you continue to to spread the word and introduce new Moms to Teeccino.

Carmen 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 were ‘where 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!
