TASSIMO TEA BAR Raspberry Iced Tea
good flavor but bitter.. from the sweetner
After reading the reviews I decided to go ahead and give it a try. I found both the new flavored teas bitter but the fruit flavor itself is good especially compared to the bottle flavored or can flavored teas. I did add some sweetener, and it evened out the bitterness. Tassimo do us a favor and leave the sweetener out of the teas. My hubby is not a follower of fruit teas but loves Ice tea. Can you please just make a plain Ice Tea for the non-fruit Ice tea lovers! I will probably continue buying this product as long as the availability continues.

My husband loves this!
My husband loves this, though he also finds this sweet. The taste is really nice. Comparable to the taste of the flavored teas at Chili's and the like. I actually like the fact the the raspberry isn't overwhelmingly artificial tasting. I agree with the other comments - take note Tassimo - make your teas as unsweetened as possible, and let your customers add the sweeteners themselves, so that they can use real sugar, stevia, or nothing. My husband and MIL are diabetic, so this is CRUCIAL.

Terrible. Tastes like artificial sweetner not tea.
I was very disappointed with the tea. Iread all of the information and no where did it say that it was sweetened with artifical sweetner and there were no reviews then. I was really excited about making iced tea but what a disappointment.

fake flavor, no tea?
Followed the brewing instructions and noticed that what was being brewed was very light in color. I drank about half of the glass and couldn't finish the rest. It tastes like flavored water with way too much sweetener in it. Sucralose has a chlorine taste to me, so that was overpowering. Add that to the fact that there doesn't seem to be any tea in it, and it's just no good in my opinion. I wonder if it's because a good tea flavor needs 3-5 minutes to steep, and this is all done in under a minute? I love most everything else about my Tassimo and the coffees, however, just not a winner on the teas.
