If this were all Christmastime had to offer, I'd say, fast-forward to the new year. Fortunately, it's not. "Christmas Tea" is one of the better Twinings black teas I've tried, but...
1. That's not saying much, and
2. It's a very poor approximation of Bigelow's much richer, more-flavorful Constant Comment blend. Conversely, if one takes Constant Comment and dilutes it by a factor of about two, it becomes a reasonable approximation of this tea.

Bullet #2 applies to the flavor, which is good...just too soft. The dry-bag and in-cup aromas were astoundingly weak for a bag containing both this much black tea and some cinnamon. Orange isn't advertised as an ingredient; however I could detect a faint bit of it, nearly as much as the mild cloves. Again, this isn't a bad tea, but I could not justify purchasing it (got it for free at a conference) when there is a much-better option for this sort of bagged blend out there.
