From Bigelow

Created by Ruth Bigelow in her kitchen over 60 years ago “Constant Comment” is today America’s most popular specialty tea. This original blend of the finest mountain-grown tea is deliciously flavored with rind of oranges and sweet spice. There’s no other tea in the world quite like it.

I have a possibly irrational love of this tea because I have drunk it since I was eleven or so. Leave the bag in the water for a while, since it’s a tad on the weak side.

When I first tried this I really liked it, but I think I also am becoming a tea snob because it’s starting to lose it’s charm. The orange is now musty, the spice is too dusty, wah wah wah…

This is an obvious personal taste tea to me. I don’t really care for it. Too busy with too many powerful flavors other than tea. Yet I can understand how others could like it.

Like previous posters, this tea is nostalgic for me. My mom used to mix it with Tang to make a hot beverage. Lowering the steep time helps alleviate the bitterness of the black tea. I find it sweet enough to enjoy without adding a sweetener.

This tea is available at my work, and is largely responsible for converting me to a tea drinker. Love the orange flavoring and the sweet aroma.

This tea is ok, a very generic orange tea (but with a lot of orange flavor). My box has bags made for 3 cups, so making tea for myself is not easy. overall, ok, not too bad, but not great.

This is ok. I don’t really taste the spice in it. Just ok.

It’s not terrible, but it’s not very good. It’s generic orange-y black tea. Drinkable but that’s about as far as I’d go.

One of the first teas I ever tried thanks to it being one of my mother’s favorites. Still enjoy it from time to time as I like spicy teas. Have yet to try the loose leaf version though.

Gross. I’ve yet to find a Bigelow tea I like.
