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 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...

Aug. 8th, 2019

The dry teabag smells like a spiced cake, like carrot cake or gingerbread. The spice is predominantly cinnamon (mellow "Ceylon" cinnamon rather than the hotter cassia), but there's something else there, too, like nutmeg or ginger.

Interestingly, the instructions say to only steep for two minutes. I'm ignoring their ...

Aug. 7th, 2019

Caffeine generally doesn't bother me, even before sleepytime (lower-case, not to be confused with the Celestial Seasonings brand of herbal tea).

Raspberry Royale® Black Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: ?????
Aug. 3rd, 2019

This was among the better bagged, fruit-flavored black teas I've had. Raspberry teas are uncommon in my experience, so I figured to try some that I saw on a hotel tray in Gillette, Wyoming. Their water ain't the greatest, so I drank one there and also took a bag home. Upon ripping open the foil-lined pouch (s.o.p. f...

Picture of Lemon Ginger Herbal Plus Probiotics

Caveat: While tolerant of them in some combinations and contexts, I'm not a big fan of either lemon or ginger. Please take this rating in the context of assessing the nominal mix of two flavors that, while not repulsive to me, aren't particular favorites either.

When I do have ginger, I look for it to give a good...
