This tea is absolutely delicious -- It smells wonderful, it tastes great and I am now so addicted to it that I must drink a large cup of it every morning. So far, I have ordered / received 450 tea bags of this particular tea and I will probably order twice as much next year! There is something so unusual and so appealing about this tea that I highly recommend that you try it -- I'm sure you will love it!

I bought a can of this tea as a Christmas stocking stuffer for my mother and it became her favorite tea.

Now I order it for her in bulk and it’s all she drinks all year long. Nothing but the best for Mom!

Tea is important to me. I own all of the accoutrements of a serious tea drinker - kettles and pots and strainers and warmers and cups. Oh the cups. Fancy and thick and thin and plain and authentic Chinese and - you get the idea. I drink tea every day. So when I say that my favorite tea in the whole world is Comfort and Joy, people who know me listen. Comfort and joy is equally delicious served hot or iced, and is just perfect with a holiday meal. But heed this - Comfort and Joy is offered seasonally, and once it is gone, it’s gone until next year. This year I went three months without my favorite tea, and I won’t let that happen again! Order early and order plenty. Republic of Tea offers great deals on bulk purchases. I hope you try Comfort and Joy. If you do, I think you will love it, too.

I absolutely love this tea. I'm writing this in July, and I have 6 teabags left from my last holiday order. I can't wait until it's back in stock in the fall. This is my quintessential holiday tea. It tastes just like a delicious mince pie or fruitcake. The spice level is perfect. The aroma and the taste are incredibly soothing. It truly makes me happy when I drink it. When I have teabags left in the summer months, I drink it iced, and it is still fantastic. Be sure to stock up when you order this, since it is only available seasonally. Can't wait for Christmas!

It reminds me of the holidays, it reminds me of my deceased grandmother in the kitchen preparing food for the holidays, so yes, comfort and joy is a wonderful name for this tea.

I'm writing this in the middle of May because it's rainy outside and I reached for a cup of comfort and joy- and was instantly overjoyed with the "comfort" the subtle spices bring to this black tea. It's somewhere between an earl grey and a chai, and with a little dash of heavy cream and honey, it is a cup of cozy, wrap up in a blanket and read a good book goodness. Take it to go on a busy, cold and blustery day and take a cup of comfort with you. Can't wait for fall when they restock!

I'm not a fan of flavored teas, usually. I got this as a sample with the recent catalog. I steeped it for about 3 minutes, then somewhat doubtfully added sugar and cream (wasn't sure how that would taste with the apple flavoring listed)--but, wow! It's glorious. I'm not giving it five stars just because I'm not sure if the flavors would be so mellow, silky and rounded if not for the dairy. Boy, though. Such a soft cinnamon flavor, not overpowering, and the apple tastes so natural, like the juices from a freshly-picked one that drip from one's lips as they bite. Spectacular, yummy. Would recommend sweetened and milked-up, maybe in a carafe at a holiday party.

This tea is my favorite. I like to drink it all year, not just in the wintertime. I make candied orange peel curls and add them to a steaming cup and the peel just kicks up the orange flavor a notch. Peel an orange, making sure there is no white left on the peel. Make a sugar and water mixture (it takes quite a bit of sugar)add the peels, boil until the sugar water becomes very thick and almost all gone. Let the mixture cool and place in a tightly covered container, refrigerate. Add to your tea. YUM YUM.

Love it!

I bought a bulk bag of this tea after finding a canister on clearance a few years back. After a while, the cinnamon can be a bit overwhelming, but this is still a great holiday tea. Wish it came in leaf form!

I've been drinking this tea for 6 years now, and it kicks off the holidays perfectly! When I think of the first sip of Comfort and Joy I took years ago (during Thanksgiving week), it evokes happy moments with family. Every cup since then has been a joy and is now a tradition, which is what the holidays are all about!

Just make sure to follow the directions for steeping, black tea becomes bitter if steeped too long!
