      This is really nostalgic. As a kid, I drank it with my mom every time we went to a hotel, once I was allowed to have caffeine

      The name seemed intresting enough but in the end it felt like any other black tea.

    • 

      My mom always drank this stuff. It's alright, it's a black tea, but it's a little astringent and heavier than plain black tea. Just has a lot going on. 3/5

      Tastes delicious and warm. A very good tea to drink when it's raining and cold outside

      A pretty standard / run-of-the-mill tea. Good but nothing special

      One of my favorite black teas, especially when I'm in the mood for something bold.

      A warm variety with a little ember of spice and sweet orange to balance it. Good baby steps into spiced tea.

    • 

      Orange and cinnamon notes abound in this tea. I like adding a little honey when I need extra sweetness.

      A good black tea with a bite. It’s great for cold winter days.

      This is one of my favorite bagged teas. The mix of orange and spice is quite a lovely mix. It reminds me of orange and spice pomanders.

      This is a wonderful tea! It tastes like Christmas-oranges, cloves, cinnamon and spice! I enjoy this tea iced in the summer. One of my favorite teas year around!

    • 

      One of my oldest beloved favorites. I think both of my grandmothers used to keep it around when I was little, and my mom kept it around from time to time too.

      The orange is always very strong, and the spices add a nice kick. It can get bitter and almost pine-y if you steep it too long, but even then just add some cream and sugar and it's still good!

      Nice flavor and very smooth. I like the way it tastes with some cream thrown in.

      Years ago, this was the first tea I tried that I actually liked. The orange and spice pair in a calming way that's not too overwhelming. A solid choice for a lower price tea.

      This is a wonderful tea, nice spicy clove taste that is hands down the best I've had so far.

    • 

      I wanna really love this tea. It smells wonderful upon opening the packet, but I can never quite get what I want out of a cup. I enjoy but not as much as I would like to.

    • 

      This is the perfect christmas tea. The orange peel compliments the black tea and clove perfectly, and this reminds me of my grandma so the memory makes it extra delicious.

    • 

      One of the classic teas of my childhood. It is a perfectly balanced orange/cinnamon which pairs well with a good book or conversation with Mom.

      Classic tea that was my go to coffee substitute for years.

      Great basic black tea! It's super basic but nice to have on hand.

      I absolutely love this tea. I use my fancier Adiago teas at home but this is my go-to at the office. The black tea with a hint of citrus, pair with a little half and half gets my work day off to a promising start!

      This was the first hot tea I ever tried and it's also one of my favorites. One of the best bagged teas out there! It takes well to sweetener and is kind to the occasional overstepping.

      One of Biggelow's more famous blends, nice black tea with spices.

      My husband really liked this, but I did not. I'm not a big fan of black tea but it's his favorite, he liked the spices mixed in it.

      A lovely black tea. Particularly like the decaf variety.

      The first tea I ever really loved, I think about it often. It's a good solid blend of black tea with plenty of orange spice. Versatile, I've had it with milk, plain, or sugared, and loved it every time.

      Great general overall tea. Butters quickly, watch steep time

      Very good black tea! The accented flavors comes through nicely as well.

      Oh, this is my go-to. I've always got an individual foil packet of one of these bad boys in my fanny pack or backpack or lunchbox or pocket. Great hot, iced, room temperature bc you forgot you made tea. Perfect balance of spices. Warm and good with any combination of sweeteners and/or creamers

      Really a classic tea. It reminds me of tea time at a the Haraseeket, beautiful hotel my parents use to take us to in Maine.
