I recently tried some decaf Constant Comment and liked the orange and spice blend, so I tried this. This blend is, in a word, disappointing. Orange & Spice is much heavier on the cinnamon and while I can taste the clove if I look for it, it's very much a background flavor. I don't smell or taste the orange at all. This is exactly the opposite of Constant Comment. Additionally, the cinnamon tastes like spicier cassia rather than mellower Ceylon cinnamon, making the blend taste like apple cider mix.

The hibiscus adds tartness and astringency to Orange & Spice that are quite pleasant, but it's not enough to rescue an otherwise generic and uninspired blend of spices.

A hotel in northwest Dallas had bags of this tea on its breakfast area, so I tried a couple -- one there in (what is some of the consistently highest quality nationwide) city water and one at home in my own well water. In both instances, my impression of this tea is simple and straightforward: "Constant Comment" minus the black tea. Since I like Constant Comment a great deal, per my review thereof, this is a fine alternative for when I don't want caffeine and can excuse the absence of the flavor also imparted by the former's decent quality of black tea. If there is a difference, it seems to be a bit more orange and less cinnamon than Constant Comment. Similarly, the aroma in-bag and in-cup is pleasant and relaxing. I do wish the flavor were a notch or two more intense; but that's the case for most herbal teas.

This tea is great for the season, sipping it I couldn't help but feel fall! While this is your run-of-the-mill supermarket tea (and for me, free-from- the-office tea), I definitely enjoyed it, especially on this cool and rainy day. I especially loved the spice tones, both for taste and aroma.

The spice and orange taste was more mild than most other teas I've experienced like this,which was perfect for me since I'm not a huge fan of flavored teas.

Bigelow also gets extra stars from me for not tasting artificial, unlike the Orange & Spice I tried from Twining's around this time last year.

Why even call this a tea... call it unsatisfying flavoured water, but not tea?
A waste of effort.

The aroma is delightful! Very much so matches the name of orange and spices and is super nostalgic for me. Always reminds me of Christmas when my mom would have her orange spice potpourri on the burner.

I am mixed on the flavor, I would rather have Constant Comment because it is not as tart, still as herbal teas go it is certainly not bad. I think I am not a fan of the sourness of rose hips and the tanginess of hibiscus and tend to not enjoy herbal teas that have those ingredients as much. The spice blend on the other hand is nice, but I wish it were a bit stronger.

I enjoyed this tea. It is not incredibly tart or spicy, nor is it sweet. The first ingredient is rose hips. As a lover of chai and spiced teas, I would prefer a bolder flavor, and wouldn't go out of my way to get this one. However, it was certainly enjoyable and refreshing at the end of a summer day.

I HATE orange & spice and this one is no exception and is on par with Celestial Seasoning's version (which my mom made us drink as kids). Smells great but tastes like drinking "Orange Potpourri". Blech!

The aroma is really pleasant; cinnamon and vague wood spice notes, hibiscus and sweet citrus.

The flavor is tart but not overpoweringly so. Light enough to be satisfying even on a warm day. Decent body, not thin. I wonder how this would go over iced?

As for value, I didn't pay for it, so I can't really say. But assuming this is in the 3-4 dollar range for 20 individually wrapped bags, I'd say it's not a bad deal.

Overall, quite satisfying every once in a while, but not my favorite. Still, there is nothing bad to say about it. (2 teabags in a 12 oz. mug).

This is one of my favorite non-caffeinated teas. It has a good balance of orangey-ness and spiciness. Most orange flavored teas are too tart or acidic for my taste, but this one is just right. One thing to note: I like this tea with milk and sugar, but the citrus does occasionally make the milk curdle.
