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. 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 belongs in here because this is a caffeinated breakfast drink. One cup won't get you wired, so "soothing" is relative. I think that if you want 'soothing" you would want to go with an Herbal Tea as it is not a '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) the others have naturally occurring caffeine as an ingredient.
Black teas, like this one, 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.
Yes, I recommend this product.
