About the Brand

The Bigelow® Tea Story

Beginning the moment our founder, Ruth Campbell Bigelow created "Constant Comment"® Tea in her kitchen in 1945, our family has focused on just one thing…trying to make the finest teas possible. Over the years we have introduced many new flavors as well as concepts in tea. Today we offer a selection of deliciously different blends of teas and green teas, a wide variety of herbal teas and teas flavored with real fruit juice. Today Bigelow Tea is the number one specialty tea company in the United States. And to think it all began with the first legendary black tea flavored with golden orange rind and sweet spice…"Constant Comment"®Tea.

Bigelow takes immense pride in providing the tea drinking community with the best tea at a great value. We only use hand- picked teas, real spices, flavors and herbs. The flavors and blends we have created are second to none. Some of our teas contain up to twenty different ingredients! And because tea is a leaf that can dry out we take steps to protect it. To keep the teas fresh, we seal our tea bags in protective packets. We simply have to protect those delightful flavors. That’s why a cup of Bigelow Tea is aromatic and delicious; a true indulgence for the senses.

Ruth Bigelow created this tea about 1945. By about 1960, Constant Comment was sold as bulk tea, in a tea tin, at Jitney Jungle at I-44 & Peoria in Tulsa. I've still got one of the tins! My mother used to send me to the store. She'd brew the bulk tea in a tea caddie and have a glass of iced tea at hand all day long. I'd come in from playing and drink about half of her glass. (Half was the most I could get away with without scolding.) So I grew up drinking this. (Never learned to like American coffee.) We've traveled all over and have tried many fine teas, but this is our all-time favorite. Both Bigelow and Twinnings have many good teas, but nothing is quite as good as Constant Comment! ;^)

Now Constant Comment comes in bags in individual foil pouches. This has at least two advantages: the foil preserves freshness and allows one to carry his tea with him to work or school to brew fresh! The best way to brew Constant Comment is in an Iced Tea Pot. We have two Iced Tea Pots from about 1998. Just put two teabags in the holder at the top of the pot, fill with water and turn on. When the first container of water is done, refill and you'll have two quarts of strong tea from two bags! When brewed this way, the tea has no bitterness at all, so you don't even need lemon to adjust the bitterness!

The best way to sweeten tea is with local honey. Local honey will also tend to prevent allergic reactions to the local pollen and allieviate any hay fever that you may be experiencing. But be sure to get at least a quart of honey and put about 1 or 2 teaspoonfuls in a quart of tea! Enjoy!

I grew up in a family of tea drinkers; and although I now tend to have a lot of coffee while I'm at work, I still drink almost exclusively tea when I'm at home. I generally prefer loose leaf teas - that way I know I'll get "the real thing," whereas tea bags tend to contain merely the leftovers of a harvest; little crumbs too poor in aromatic and other content to otherwise pass quality control standards.

The exception are Bigelow teas: and first and foremost among those their flagship, Ruth Bigelow's original "Constant Comment" with its recipe of black tea, orange grind and holiday spices (primarily cinnamon). Created by Mrs. Bigelow on the basis of an old colonial recipe over half a century ago, the blend soon became so popular among her friends that their "constant comments" of approval prompted Ruth and husband David Bigelow to found their own tea company. Since then, "Constant Comment" has long become a true classic ... and if you love tea, it is indeed the perfect refreshment; whether or not it's Christmas time. (E.g., it also makes for great iced tea in summer; particularly if you add a bit of lemon.)

If you're making more than a single cup of tea, and unless you like your tea *very* weak, you may want to rethink the company's measuring directions - based on the the "one bag per cup" ratio, you'll likely need two or more bags for an entire pot (depending on size), even when steeping an extra minute or two. That said, though ... wanna come over for a cuppa?

For those used to the 20-pack boxes of Constant Comment, these will be a big let down.

Constant Comment is all I drink. I have bought countless 20-pack boxes from Walmart over the last couple years. So I decided I would save some money and buy this in bulk. The first thing I noticed is the packaging is different. In the 20-pack boxes, they're normal thick tea bags, all packed together sitting in the box. In the 40-pack box, the bags are different - cheaper, thinner slip bags, with 4 each in metal-lined paper wrappers that you have to rip open. (See the photo I have attached to this page by scrolling to the top of the product page and clicking on "See customer images")

The next thing I noticed was the smell. Whereas the 20-pack bags have a deep and distinctive smell, the 40-pack bags had none of that. It reminded me of some cheap Lipton orange spice tea. Then the taste. I tried my usual 1 bag in a 12-ounce glass of hot water. The taste I have come to know quite well just wasn't there, at all. It tasted diluted - as if there's less tea in each bag - and less rich, again reminding me of Lipton orange spice.

So, 239 more bags to go, and I'll be switching back to the Walmart 20-pack boxes I'm used to. This was a big let down, but I'm still a fan of (the Real) Constant Comment.

Update: I've tried doing two bags in a 12-ounce glass as well, and it's simply brought out the worst parts even more. There is a weird aftertaste that just ruins it. If I hadn't already given it two stars, I would drop it down to one now.

This is the tea of my youth, Friday nights at my best friend's house, brewed up properly in a pot or even just by the mug with a little honey. I like tea that's been steeped a while, and letting this tea sit a bit does not ruin the flavour. The orange highlights are just right and compliment the tea nicely. I can be brought out of the foulest mood by just the scent of the tea brewing in my cup. An excellent tea to have on hand for when you are under the weather, or for those cold winter evenings in front of the fire.
