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.

Mint Medley® Herbal Tea

Style: Mint Tea – Region: ?????
Dec. 12th, 2018

Both the dry and brewed tea smell almost like Wrigley's Doublemint gum with the balance a little more toward peppermint.

The taste is not what I was expecting. The tea is definitely minty, but as the ingredients include rose hips, lemon peel and hibiscus, I was expecting some fruitiness. Of the extra ingredients, I ...

Plantation Mint® Black Tea

Style: Black Tea with Mint – Region: ?????
Dec. 12th, 2018

Both the dry tea bag and brewing tea smell like straight-up spearmint oil.

Bigelow's base tea is too mild to stand up to the spearmint and I can neither taste nor smell any tea at all. Aside from the color, this is indistinguishable from plain spearmint. The spearmint is good, but I expect to taste tea in my tea.

Picture of Pomegranate Pizzazz® Herbal Tea

In many ways, the behavior of this concoction from bag to cup to esophagus reminded me uncannily of the berry-flavored members of Celestial Seasonings' "Zinger" line:
* Fruity, hibiscus-heavy dry-bag and in-cup aromas,
* Initial cherry-red color turning a deep, opaque purple-gray with time,
* Strongly fruity,...

Constant Comment®

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????
Aug. 24th, 2018

I like decaf Constant Comment, but hadn't gotten around to trying the original version. It turns out, it's not much different. I can taste a little of the maltiness in the finish, but that's about it. I already know that decaf black teas have little tea flavor, but I was hoping there would be more in this one. A bit of...

Lemon Lift Black Tea

Style: Lemon Black Tea – Region: ?????
Jul. 30th, 2018

About 15 years ago, out by L.A., I saw a dude outside a smoothie shop dressed in yellow hat, yellow shoes and yellow tights, wearing a lemon costume. Had he asked me for a lift, I could have handed him a bag of this tea and satisfied the request.

Otherwise, the tea is not too useful. It reminded me a lot of flavor...
