Teeccino: A Healthy Coffee Alternative

Are you a coffee person or tea person? Some people have a strong preference, but I have always been a drinker of both, depending on time of day or depending on my mood.
Teeccino Herbal Coffee is a unique beverage that combines some of the healthy aspects of both coffee and tea.
Teeccino is naturally caffeine-free and non-acidic, but it still provides a natural energy boost. It comes in ground form, like coffee, or in tea-bag form. You can choose from light, medium or dark roast. There are even tasty flavors like Chocolate Raspberry or Caramel Nut!

Disclosure: As a Naturally Savvy Team Blogger, I received free samples of Teeccino for review purposes.

Making History

I am a historian, and spending so much time delving in to the past does mean that it takes me a while to “catch up” to the present. I am no Luddite, and I love technology; but, I admit, I am sometimes a “slow adopter.”
This is my first blog post (please be kind)!

Subject? Product reviews, contests, coupons, deals, family matters–and, when possible, I’ll be taking small nuggets of history and connecting them to the contemporary world.
Goal? To inform, entertain, and engage readers in conversation.
Inspiration? I am a member of @NescafeUSA Tasters, and their ‘Tools for Blogging’ activity really helped both inform and inspire me to get cracking on this.

Take a look through old newspapers at your local library--the stories may fascinate you!

So, stay tuned to this channel for more posts!
