Found this tea very refreshing. Have not had this in ages great for a brisk June morning in Michigan.

I always have to have this tea on hand. It has been a favorite for over 20 years. The oranges mixed with spices is so wonderful, it just makes you stop to smell and enjoy.

Can’t beat a classic. A little orange-y, a little spicy, this is one of those teas that won’t let you down when you just don’t know what you want.

Sadly I am one of the few people who did not grow up on this tea. I have just recently tried this and so far I have to say that it is not horrendous. I really like the orange spicy flavor and will probably have to steep some very soon.

A great tea for a cold fall evening – the orange flavor is lovely, and it’s just spicy enough for my liking. Hadn’t had it in ages, and found a lone tea bag lurking in my stash (courtesy of a handful of tea bags handed to me by the lovely lady at the hotel desk on my last trip, when I had a Lack Of Tea Crisis), so I figured it might be time to brew it up. :-)

I’m not really into black teas but my coworker offered me some of this. I liked the smell more than anything. Really nice and clove-y. But without additives it was a little too bitter for my taste. Maybe I steeped it too long. I’ll probably never buy this one.

Constant Comment has long been one of my favorite teas. The taste is excellent and I find it highly relaxing and enjoyable. I have talked with many vocal tea drinkers who believe that Constant Comment by Bigelow is the most trustworthy and tasteful tea on the market. I highly encourage you to try it.

This tea gets really strong, really fast! It’s far too bracing if left to brew too long; I prefer this with a shorter brew time of 3 minutes or less. It’s nice with a touch of sugar. This was one of my mother’s favourite teas, and just the scent of it brings me back to wintery mornings in the kitchen, watching the deer outside in the backyard. I love this tea for that reason, though I rarely keep it on hand.

ETA: Upon visiting my parents for the holiday this November, I had a nostalgic cup of this again. The same as ever, excellent with just a little sugar.
