Rated 2 out of 5 by Java1 Too Sweet, Contains Fake Sugar
The raspberry flavor is subtle and the tea flavor is even more subtle. The overwhelming flavor in this drink is the fake sugar, which ruins everything. It would be nice if this was just raspberry tea with no sweeteners of any kind so that the consumer can sweeten to taste. This is only the second Tassimo product I have ever tried that I can’t recommend. The first was the peach iced tea for all the same reasons I can't recommend this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CP78 Too sweet ... contains Sucralose
I was so excited when I saw new teas being added to the product line. Unfortunately, this product doesn't do it for me. It is way too sweet and contains both, sugar and sucralose! In theory, the sweetness could be offset by adding more ice or water. However, depending on how sweet you like your drinks, you might end up with watered down beverage, like I did. I would prefer if the T-discs would be unsweetened (I especially despise the taste of artificial sweeteners). Also, I would like to see non-caffeinated teas, such as herbal, rooibos, and fruit teas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mrphotoman Not bad but.........
It is not bad but it is slightly bitter and has an artificial sweetener aftertaste.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mochaccino Stop putting Sucralose artificial sweetener in your teas or put a "Diet" label to warn people.
All I taste is sucralose (Splenda) overpowering all the other flavor of the tea. Here is what would be a delicious Raspberry flavored iced tea completely ruined by sucralose. It's such a great idea to make flavored iced teas for Tassimo and it brews perfectly into a Tervis cup filled with ice. I'd love to buy these tea drinks over and over again and drink it every day, but I can't because of the bad potent artificial sweetener.
Are there people out there who can't taste sucralose or something? It is unnatural and gross, like a really bad fake version of sugar. This drink would be unbelievably delicious if not for the fake sugar. It's not like the drink doesn't have sugar as the second ingredient, so why does sucralose have to be in this drink at all?
Here is my advice to Tassimo and I hope they will take this seriously: Offer a diet and regular version of your teas. I don't drink diet soda, I can't tolerate the taste of diet drinks, but I recognize there are people who have learned to become accustomed to the flavor of fake sugar. Give me a regular (non-diet) option so I can continue buying teas from you. This also applies to your Chai Tea latte which I would buy repeatedly if not for the sucralose.
