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.

Constant Comment® Loose Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend
Nov. 17th, 2019

I think that this is the first time I will have said (or written) this, but I actually prefer the teabag form of this tea. The balance of flavors is off in this. I've tried four different ways of brewing it, changing both the times and the amount of tea, but nothing felt quite right.

Using 2 1/2 tsp for 2 min using...

Nov. 11th, 2019

This is only the second tea by Bigelow that I've tried (and both, I've tried in the last two days). I've been, overall, impressed by Bigelow. I admit that after being quite disappointed by other American brands, I gravitated towards those from the UK. I assumed that they'd be better able to formulate a good cup of tea,...

Caveat: Constant Comment is one of my very favorite teas, so even a noticeable dropoff from that still garners a favorable rating from me.

The Good: As bagged decaf teas go, this is one of the most tolerable, and dare I say pleasant. Most of the wonderfully clove/orange/cinnamon aroma and flavor of original Const...

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend
Nov. 10th, 2019

This is tea from a tea bag, so right from the start, we're not dealing with the best quality. But, this sort of tea isn't for having a gourmet experience. If it were, they wouldn't sell it for a few dollars at the local supermarket. It's a daily tea. On that level, it does fine.

The flavor profile is different from ...

Picture of Steep Rooibos Hibiscus Herbal Tea

Upon opening the foil pouch, this smells strongly and plainly of rooibos. Adding the water brings a surprisingly strong aroma of orange oil.

The flavors play well together. The orange lends sweetness to the tart hibiscus and rose hips. The nuttiness of the rooibos adds a nice, nutty complexity that isn't often foun...
