I'm not that happy with my purchase of this item so I'm glad I only ordered one and not 3 of them as I was going to. I'm basically disappointed with this because it just doesn't do what I bought it for to do as well as I expected.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I've had Twinings Brand Tea Bags and I didn't like them. The Tassimo is a different story altogether though. Reluctantly I tried this due to my first experience with Twinings AND because it was the only brand tea available for these machines. As you can see, above I rated 'Taste' and 'Aroma' as "Good." Same with 'Soothing' HOWEVER: "Soothing" seemed like a trick phrase of sorts to me. I don't think that one even belongs in here for consideration because this is a 'caffeinated" beverage. Earl Grey, a British tradition. One cup won't get you wired, still "soothing" is relative. I think that if you want 'soothing" you would want to go with an Herbal Tea as Herbal "teas" are not 'tea' per se. For instance there's no such thing literally as a Blueberry Tea Tree from which workers literally till the crops of literal blueberry tea leaves: no such thing: but anyway any tea that comes from a tree as far as I know, whether it's Oolong, Black, Green, or White: from India, China or elsewhere (red comes from more of a plant than a tree I believe) anyway, the one's I've mentioned have naturally occurring caffeine as an ingredient. I don't know, have you ever or has it ever, is it ever your experience to call your morning cup of coffee, for instance to be 'Soothing" or do you consume caffeine to wake up??? I don't, but either way...
Black teas, like this one, contain caffeine and don't contain antioxidants but have catechins I think which are especially good for your stomach. Green & white teas ARE rich in antioxidants, white even more so than green AND green, as you may or may not have already known, has lots of them (antioxidants,) BUT I've digressed.
The point is thought that I like this tea a lot and unlike at least one review I read, which stated that they ended up with tea leaves spilling out into their cup, my experience has consistently been that there was not even a trace of tea leaves in even one single cup. I like it; easier to make than having to mess with a tea bag, faster, nothing bad to say about it EXCEPT it would be nice if Herbal Teas became available for or in T-Discs.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I don't like to make negative comments. My taste may be different from yours. Personally, I don't like this particular blend. Real vanilla is not used to flavor this coffee, the vanilla flavoring is artificial and one taste would have told me so had I not read it on the packaging. I wouldn't say that the taste is completely awful, but #1. I won't buy this one a second time because #2 the box I bought of this will probably be around the house for awhile to serve as a reminder that I didn't like this one if nothing else.
It just doesn't taste right to me. If you're a smoker maybe you won't taste it and you can get it on sale or something.
No, I do not recommend this product.

This thing brews coffee REAL fast. I have an espresso machine that I like a lot. Makes espresso fairly quickly, not as hot of a temperature though that the Tassimo produces. I have not yet tried Tassimo espresso yet though, so I cannot speak for the quality of espresso varieties available for THIS machine.
I also have a Keurig for K-Cups. Great machine also BUT the Tassimo makes coffee and teas faster AND hotter. Hard to believe, but it does. EXTREMELY easy to use. Maybe it goes without saying for some, but for those to whom it applies, this is important: Be sure to read the instructions that come with the Tassimo AND be sure to clean the unit as stated in the instructions before brewing your first cup of coffee from it. You won't be sorry.
Yes, I recommend this product.

As you may know, chamomile is an herb or wild flower. Gevalia must have SOME garden, although chamomile in general usually can be found growing wild to my understanding. This tea, I feel has a great, GREAT taste to it. Very gentle on your stomach, I like it with natural honey from a health food store. (Grocery store honey is mass produced, it's heated to a point that important components for good health are obliterated leaving mostly fructose where glucose is more desirable...) ANYWAY, I read that in some cultures they make a strong cup of chamomile tea, using two tea bags, first thing in the morning, drink it unsweetened then lay on their right side for 5 minutes, then on their back for 5 minutes, left side for 5 minutes and finally on their stomach for 5 minutes. If you do this at home you'll find yourself feeling like a complete moron having accomplished nothing in 20 minutes time. Just kidding, seriously though, doing so will cleanse your colon, it's good for you. I've done this, I do it once a year or so, it's invigorating to some extent. The point is, I like this particular chamomile tea for this exercise. Very relaxing, soothing, calming. For the record, I'm a hetero male who just happens to like doing these sorts of things. A relatively inexpensive 'de-stressor pill" chemical free. I like it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Goes great sweetened with honey (best purchased from a local health food store) Higher in anti oxidants than green tea, this particular white tea with pear is an excellent replacement to Celestial Seasonings harder to find, and over-priced when you do White Tea with Pear. I believe this tea does contain naturally occurring caffeine, so 'soothing' is relative to what??? I like it a lot. Gevalia packs a lot of tea bags into a small container, the tea bags themselves are very cool, they're in this round, mesh-type 'wrapper' of sorts that doesn't require squeezing upon removal from your cup to the trash. I really like this a lot, from the tea itself to the packaging. What a great job they did!
Yes, I recommend this product.

By virtue of their use of the word "Blend" I expected something pretty mediocre; but as it turns out this is now my favorite K-Cup coffee to date. It just has an overall good taste that appeals to me.

This is a very nice tasting tea. I did not rate it to be very soothing as it contains caffeine which is not generally regarded as being a soothing ingredient in any beverage.

You might not find this to be the most soothing of teas even though it has a soothing taste. It DOES contain caffeine though which is not characteristically very soothing. It IS smooth tasting, I think anyway. At the outset it may APPEAR soothing, but again there is that caffeine in it to consider. It has a stronger effect on some more than others.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Is it made made out of Stainless Steel?

No dimensions and product description.
For as well as it works to my satisfaction, it could be made of Sterling Silver, sell for only $10.00 and it still wouldn't matter to me as I'm dissatisfied with it. I think it is stainless though.

Will these pods fit the Hamilton beach single brewer?

Is your Hamilton Beach single brewer of the Tassimo variety? Did you buy your machine in a store, or online? If so AND it is a Tassimo coffee maker, then, yes.

If you bought the machine at a yard sale or something and you don't know whether it is a Tassimo machine or not, then I don't know.

Does the signature blend taste like the Antigua?

Yes. EXACTLY like it. There's absolutely no difference whatsoever. All they did was take the same coffee and put it in a package with a different label on it in order to trick people.

How much caffeine is in the Signature Blend REGULAR Coffee?

I 'THINK' that caffeine content is pretty standard. I drink one cup and I'm good for awhile (like all day.) Everything AFTER the first one, for me, is a matter of my just liking the taste of coffee in general. I didn't experience any excessive buzz. I found it to be a very pleasant amount of caffeine, pretty standard in comparison maybe with a 16 oz. cup of 7-11 coffee as opposed to an 8 - 10 oz. sized cup of Signature Blend. Same thing pretty much is what I'm saying and expressing as a ratio. I hope that this is more helpful than not.

Has the Earl Grey Tea been discontinued?

Always buy some for my mother for Christmas (she LOVES it) and don't see it listed. Help?
No, the Earl Grey has NOT been discontinued. If you can't find it, why don't you call the 800 number to order?

Does China Mountain Green Tea have caffine?

Yes. In fact ALL Green Teas have caffeine in them. It occurs naturally within the leaf, just like caffeine occurs naturally inside of coffee beans. (How they get the caffeine OUT for de-caf, I forget, but Green Tea has Caffeine in it. Never heard of de-caf Green Tea.

is chamomile dream caffine free?

Yes, the Chamomile Dream 'tea' IS Caffeine FREE it is. You may find it interesting to note that Chamomile tea, although it's called 'tea' is NOT technically a tea. (It's called 'tea' for lack of a better word, I don't know.) The point is that there are no chamomile tea trees that sprout chamomile tea leaves. Chamomile is a type of flower considered more technically as an herb. Therefore it is an herbal 'tea' AND there is no caffeine in this one. I can't say for sure whether ALL herbal 'teas' are caffeine free. The Chamomile Dream however contains no naturally occurring caffeine and none is added.

(Note: I think you'll find that it tastes even better with honey.)
