About Bigelow Tea

Bigelow Tea is an American tea company based in Fairfield, CT. Bigelow tea is widely distributed in supermarkets in the U.S. The company is best known for teabag teas, especially flavored and scented teas, although a few of its teas are also available loose. Bigelow has a large number of registered trademarks for its named blends of flavored tea; one of the best-known and oldest such blends is Constant Comment®, a black tea flavored with orange and spice. In addition to its website, Bigelow also runs the Bigelow tea blog, featuring news relating to the company.

Bigelow also owns one of the few tea plantations in the continental United States, located in Charleston, SC. The plantation had been closed, but was reopened by Bigelow in 2006. Tea from this operation is sold as American Classic Tea.

Bigelow also owns Novus tea, which it sells on its website.

Employees of Bigelow's production facilities in Boise and Louisville have undertaken a number of projects to promote sustainability, including composting, moving more towards recyclable materials, and reducing energy usage. Bigelow has a section of their website dedicated to their efforts to promote sustainability.

English Teatime

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????
Jun. 15th, 2018

The aroma is faint, but malty. The tea tastes thin and a bit cooked. Not offensive, just not much going on. If I take a big sip, there's a warm bitterness on the sides of the tongue that's nice.

As the tea cools down, it's more astringent and bitter than before. I'm trying to taste what might be in the blend and it ...

Raspberry Royale® Black Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: ?????
Jun. 9th, 2018

I like this tea. The flavor is quite complex and I'm not sure which flavors are the tea itself and which are "other natural flavors." The malt sweetness of the tea is foremost and the raspberry flavor is unmistakable, but subtle. The tea tastes alternately of Ceylon and Assam, coupling the malt with an almost roasted f...

Red Raspberry Herbal Tea

The dry tea bag out of the foil wrapper smells vaguely spicy if I hold it to my nose, but there's not much there. Adding water brings out a small bit of aroma, but nothing that really smells like tea. It smells lightly earthy and...

Chinese Oolong

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: China
May. 7th, 2018

A dark oolong with a nutty and buttery taste. It lacks the complexity of a higher quality oolong, but it has the advantage of being cheap and available at grocery stores. I actually prefer it cold brewed, and the ease of putting two bags in a water bottle overnight to take with me the next day is the only reason I'd ge...
