drank Constant Comment by Bigelow
1979 tasting notes

I’m traveling this week, so I haven’t had access to all my teas (hence the lack of tasting notes). This is one of the only teas my mom had in her cupboard, so I had a bag this morning with breakfast. I’m sure I’ve had Constant Comment before, but it’s been quite a while I didn’t really remember it. It reminds me of a holiday tea, with it’s orange rinds and spices.

I like the aroma a lot, clove and cinnamon and a bit of orange, but I feel like the taste falls a little flat. I didn’t get any bitterness, but I didn’t get a lot of distinctive flavor either; it was all in the aroma. A decent tea, but probably not one I’ll go out of my way to stock!

I wish this was available as a loose tea. It was my go-to tea growing up, but I do wish it was stronger.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
