Here's another tea I got at a motel breakfast area, but that can be ordered online. If you're familiar with Bigelow's Constant Comment, the taste is a slightly lower-order approximation of that, but without cloves, about the same orange level, similar strength but slightly lower quantity of black tea. Much weaker aroma, though...

For a holiday-style spice tea, the smell was rather feeble out of the bag and in the cup, more so than the flavor itself. The "spice" is straight cinnamon, which is apparent in the background but dominated by the orange rinds and black tea itself.

Overall it's a smooth, sweet, friendly tea, not quite as strong as I would like (the dry tea content in-bag is a little less than most), but probably pleasing to most folks who enjoy spiced black tea in general. If you like it strong, use a big cup and two bags.
