We just spent the weekend kicking back with our Tassimo brewing up the Twinings Chai Tea Latte T Discs. We've got quite the crew of Chai Tea Latte drinkers here at Single Serve Coffee. Often, the entire crew will venture out to Starbucks to get what they consider the "best Chai Tea Latte" around. Other Chai Tea Lattes can be had at Pete's coffee, or even at Dunkin Donuts. Each of the Chat Tea Lattes are always a bit different at the various coffee shops. The Starbucks Chai Tea latte is considered to be the most balanced with sweetness and milky goodness and Pete's is in solid second place.
So, this brings us back to the do it at home Chai Tea Latte crowd. The Twinings Chai Tea Latte T Discs for Tassimo consist of a Chai Tea T Disc and a Latte creamer milk T Disc. You combine these two T Discs into one Chai Tea Latte that you can make at home. How does the Twining Chai Tea Latte stack up against our local coffee shops? Does our staff like the Twinings Chai Tea Latte as an alternative to a $4.50 drink at a coffee shop?

We're very excited Tassimo is continuing to come out with amazing drinks for their hot beverage system. One of the staff here at Single Serve Coffee (Maya over at Kitchen Contraptions) is probably the biggest Tai Chi Latte fan we've ever seen. Not only does she purchase a Tai Chi Latte just about everywhere we go, she's yet to be impressed with us making her one at the office.
Hopefully these new Twinings Chai Tea Latte Tassimo T Discs will pass her stringent test. The Twinings Chai Tea Latte Tassimo T Discs come packed with 8 chai tea t discs and 8 latte t discs allowing you to make 8 Twinings Chai Tea Lattes. These T Discs will work in your Tassimo TA1400 and TA1200 hot beverage systems.
We'll have a full run down on Monday. If you can't wait and need to order they are available at Tassimo and at Twinings Chai Tea Latte for Tassimo Coffee and Beverage Makers.

Keurig and K Cup display at Bed Bath & Beyond
We've been making our way around several stores lately to see what Tassimo and Keurig have to offer in more brick and mortar environment instead of online. After a recent visit to Bed Bath & Beyond (you can use their store locater here), we were quite surprised to see Keurig and Tassimo back to back in a store offering. Don't get us wrong, it's not odd to see both in the same single serve coffee aisle - or single cup coffee offering area - but it was pretty stunning to see a wall of both T Discs and K Cups in a mid-aisle single serve coffee offering.

We've been enjoying the new Tassimo T Discs that just came out over the past week. First up for impressions? How about the Nabob 100% Colombian Arabica coffee T Discs. If you aren't familiar with the Nabob brand, it's based in Canada and loved throughout the country. There is even a rather large page on Kraft Canada's web site detailing the Nabob coffee brand.
In the past we enjoyed Jacobs Kroenung T Discs that seemed to have a similar coffee flavor note. What you're going to find tasting the Nabob 100% Columbian Arabica Coffee is a very light, smooth tasting coffee. This is not for the dark coffee drinker, nor is it for the medium coffee drinker, this is for the morning at the cabin occasional coffee drinker.

In a way we always thought "T Discs" sounded a lot like a "tea disc" than a coffee disc. However, if you have a Tassimo, you know a T Disc can contain anything a Tassimo can brew up or mix into a coffee or tea drink, but Tassimo does make "TEA Discs".
We've just spotted the new Tazo® Awake™ Black Tea and can't wait to try it. The tea combines indian black tea and bright flavorful teas from Sri Lanka. Packed 7 T Discs per package and priced at $2.89 a set. These T Discs will work in your Tassimo TA1400 and TA1200 hot beverage systems.

Made for the TASSIMO Hot Beverage System, the Gevalia Signature Crema Coffee T-Discs make one of the best cups of coffee we've had for Tassimo. Don't get us wrong - we love our Jacobs Kroenung and our Yuban coffee T-Discs as well, but we've really been enjoying this coffee over the past week.
Packed in 2 - 16 count T-Disc boxes, these T-Discs will work in your Tassimo 1200 and 1400 models.

We've all been waiting for a cup of single serve coffee from Starbucks, but we think we can definitely settle for Tassimo T Discs from Seattle's Best Coffee. Starbucks may own Seattle's Best, but the coffees are always a bit different. We love the stronger blends we can often find at Seattle's Best, and they also have that crazy aroma of Seattle in the coffee - rich, a bit darker, and always interesting.
About the Blends:
- Seattle's Best Coffee Breakfast Blend: Roasted to a deep dark brown, this coffee is medium-bodied and intense with a rich flavor and roasty sweetness and an elegant finish. This blend says, "Ready, set, go!". Packed 16 T DISCS per package. $7.99 per package.
- Seattle's Best Coffee® Henry's Blend® - Nutty flavor, hearty aroma and a complex, rich flavor are the essence of this medium-to full-bodied blend. It's super-smooth with a long lingering finish. Packed 16 T DISCS per Package. Price $7.99.
What did we really think about these two new blends? What did they taste like? Are they as good as a cup of Seattle's Best coffee right at the coffee shop?
