The tea to get you into the holiday spirit! This blend of bright, tangy Ceylon black tea flavored with warm cinnamon, pungent cloves, and orange peels is a Christmas delight. Spicy and fresh aroma, outdoorsy and cozy, with a balanced tangy flavor and slightly sweet finish. Perfect to sip while decking the halls, being jolly, or dreaming of a white Christmas.

      I was disappointed in this tea. It's still a nice cup, but the flavors weren't as strong as I expected. There are other teas out there with a more festive feel to them.

      Little sister is absolutely in love with this tea. Wassail scent and her eyes lit up like Christmas morning!

      Just okay, not too into this blend. The spice was too heavy

      Bought this tea for my sister and she really enjoys it!

      It’s decent. Not as spicy as I wanted but still good.

      It's an okay Christmas tea. Like other people have noted, it's like a weaker Constant Comment. This is one time that I'd take the supermarket bagged tea over the loose leaf.

      Not a bad tea. This has some rather nice spice to it. Next time, I'm going to see how well of a latte it makes.

      It's very similar to Christmas Tea from Twinings and somewhat to Constant Comment from Bigelow.

      Reminds me of constant comment, only not as strong. Not bad, but not my favorite.

      A fantastic, festive tea to enjoy the holiday season. With just the right notes of spice this is truly Christmas in a cup!

      Quite a good tea but feels like a flavor combination I’ve tasted so many times before in Adagio’s monthly subscription box so it doesn’t seem super distinct to me.

      This tea is absolutely perfect. Sweetened with a little bit of the rock sugar crystals, and it was wonderful on this cold day!

      the name says it all. It is christmas in a mug of warm delicious tea

      A lovely black tea with a good combination of citrus and spice. I love an orange spice tea and this one was a treat.

    • 

      Mellow spices, a happy feeling. It's like a gentle warmth, nothing too intense. It can be enjoyed on its own or with cream and sugar.

      A nice Christmassy black teablend with subtle orange and spice. Gets the point across without being overpowering. Probably won't drink regularly, but wouldn't turn down an offered cup.

      If you have had pepper cookies, you have a pretty good idea of what this tea is. I brewed it at a lower temp (out of laziness) and I think I missed out on some of the flavor. I wish I just did it right. But it was still very Christmassy!

      Hits all the right notes in terms of Christmas flavors. Spice and fruit all wrapped up in a cup like a Christmas present.

    • 

      Spices are a bit lighter in this than other blends. But no one flavor dominates which is nice. The base tea is quite bitter and astringent though, so not my favorite.

    • 

      Holiday flavors abound in this fun tea, enjoyed and will drink again!

      I love the idea of this tea, but I found the flavors a bit underwhelming. I would love to have more of the spices!

      Enjoyed it, although I found it a bit overwhelming of cinammon.

    • 

      I'm definitely not a fan of this tea. I wouldn't necessarily say it's bad; the flavors just don't really do it for me. I must have a very different idea of what Christmas should taste like. =)

      I usually dont like black tea but this one is really good. Its got a nice spice tonight

      Love this tea. Whenever I have it it takes me back to a drink my mom made for me as a child.

      Delicious and perfect for the holiday season! Lovely with a little milk and sugar

    • 

      I like this. Easy to over steep, which makes it really bitter. Good when it is done right though. I like the spice flavor. I do prefer other teas for the holidays, but I wouldn’t turn this down if someone gave it to me.

    • 

      I loved it more the first time I got it, but the second time just wasn't hitting the same notes. It's spice, and over all a very good cup of black tea.
