Grab a glass of summer's coolest treat. We made sure our raspberry flavored iced tea is the perfect balance of sweet and tart.

I was excited with the release of these iced teas. The idea is great and it works well. Fill up your cup with ice, press the button and voila. After a sip or two, you notice that it's overly sweet. I need to add extra cold water to it to water it down. The taste is pretty artificial. I wish that had something more natural and better tasting. NO NEED FOR EXTRA SUGAR.
No, I do not recommend this product.

A special gift to the 2nd Earl Grey, this aromatic tea was so popular at parties that Twining's® received special permission to sell it; now, your TASSIMO® machine brews a cup to perfection. Quintessentially British and flavored with hints of bergamot oil, Earl Grey Tea has been enjoyed for nearly two centuries.

I absolutely love early grey tea lattes. Pop this sucker in the machine, add a cappuccino or latte pod to it and two squirts of vanilla syrup and you have it...without needing to go to Starbucks or another cafe. The aroma of the tea spills throughout my apartment and smells great. It is the boldest of teas available through Tassimo. Of course, drinking it plain is great too!
Yes, I recommend this product.

A dark roast, full-bodied selection with an extra bold taste that is both sharp and intense. Made with 100% high quality Arabica beans, this complex and hearty blend is reminiscent of the finest cafés in Italy.

This is truly the best black coffee offered by Tassimo yet. The flavors are all there, without any burnt after tastes. While it is truly dark and bold, it has a smooth taste. You can also add a cappuccino or latte disc to this coffee for a great combination, since it is so dark. Don't hesitate, enjoy!
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my favorite coffee to drink in the morning. It is bold in flavor, has a great aroma and is unique from the "run of the mill" arabica coffees. Give it a try!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Herbal - Caffeine Free Teas

The selection of teas on this site is abysmal. Is there anywhere I can find herbal, naturally caffeine free teas for the Tassimo?
Unfortunately, as of yet, no. I hope they increase their tea selection like the coffees. It would be nice to find herbal teas, rooibos, green, oolong, and other types. Hopefully one day. For now, it's Early Grey and English Breakfast...

Which Gevalia is more intense, the italian roast, or the dark blend

I used to prefer the starbucks and want to order the strongest, darkest blend
Based on my tastebuds, I would definitely say the Dark Italian Roast. It has great flavor to it that goes beyond all the others...without the burnt taste of Starbucks coffee ;).

Which extra bold t disc brew 16 oz cups of coffee

Unfortunately, Tassimo still has not created any dark roast/extra bold discs that come in the 16 ox/large cup size. There are only two light options, the Maxwell House Cafe Collection Morning Blend and the Gevalia Morning Roast. I hope they one day will increase the offerings of large cups, however, I believe that it is difficult since the pods are larger for the darker roasts and would have to be even larger, not allowing them to fit in the machine.

how many discs are in a box

The boxes vary in the quantity of pods. Some of the dark roasts are thicker pods and then come with three boxes instead of two. When you look at the different types of coffee, you can find the number of pods/cups on the page in the details section. This Italian Dark Roast comes with 12 cups/pods.
