This herbal blend was extremely aromatic and the smell of cinnamon quickly filled my house while I was steeping. It was sweet, minty and deliciously spicy all at the same time. The spearmint added a really nice, cooling crispness to the finish of each sip. I was worried that the orange flavor might be too strong but it was just right. I could see where this would do well with adding just a smidgen of honey. This would be a great tea for those who typically don’t like holiday blends. It isn’t overly sweet or spicy, just a nice festive cup. I would definitely recommend this tea.
