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.

I love this tea. Definitely my favourite spiced, bagged tea. It reminds me of a chai but isn't as strong as some I've tried, which is perfect for me. It's cinnamony and tastes like Christmas.

The smell was barely existent but the taste is strong and filled with delightful Cinnamon. Christmas tea is really just a Chai Tea, but I love Chai so this is perfect. It’s ironic but recently, after trying some Chais, almost all dissappoint. I first found Chai years ago in teabag form and swooned. I have since tried Thai Chai by Adagio – yummy different sort of tropical Chai. I nabbed some Oriental Spice to hopefully serve as a Chai and Orange Spice but sadly disliked it. I also nabbed another Masali Loose Tea Chai from the local tea shop and sadly it was lackluster as well. Must I only find blissful Chai solitude within a teabag? Surely not!

This one is very rich on Cinnamon, which I enjoy, followed by a pleasant orange taste resting on the tongue. Skimming through reviews, it looks as if others sometimes note a lack of cinnamon. Odd. Perhaps the cinnamon is brought fuller out with sugar, I think.
