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.

Picture of Steep Organic Pure Green Decaffeinated Tea

After my experiences with other teas in the Steep line, I'm a little disappointed in this tea. It's not terrible, though.

The dry tea smells like dusty hay, vegetal, but otherwise nondescript.

The brewing tea smells grassy, but the aroma is a bit weak. There's also a sort of "shrimp" note that I've detected in ot...

This tea came from a motel. That isn't surprising, considering that the Bigelow website for the product offers 48-bag boxes and cases thereof, as if targeting the food-service market. I've gotten the regular version of this (which is mediocre too) in motels as well as on airplanes.

For a decaf tea, Premium Decaf w...

The concept behind "Green Tea with Lemon" left me with a s...

Dec. 7th, 2020

Having not been either impressed nor repulsed by Bigelow's regular Earl Grey, and having not gotten any new teas to review for some months, and having to work down a stockpile of reviewed teas, I finally raided my wife's cache of the decaf version to try it for a report here. I've missed RateTea more than I've missed ...

Not bad, considering this is a teabag. It tastes like a basic but not bitter black tea, and I do notice some raisin-like notes as well. It’d be a good at-work tea.
