Over 70 years ago, Ruth Campbell Bigelow changed the way we drink tea in the United States. An avid tea connoisseur, Ruth thought tea drinkers like herself would enjoy a more zestfully flavored tea. Happening upon a special colonial recipe that called for tea to be blended with orange peel and spices, she decided to try and re-create what she felt sounded like a wonderful idea. After much trial and error in the family kitchen, she finally hit upon the best tasting recipe. After sharing samples with family, friends and acquaintances, one of them reported back that her new tea had caused nothing but constant comments. Thus the “Constant Comment” tea name was born which started a wonderful journey for the Bigelow family.

As a third generation family run business, Bigelow Tea believes in trying new combinations of tea and new products, we believe in asking our old and new friends, family and acquaintances what they think about our new blends, so join us on our blogging journey where we explore tea in all of its forms from helpful tea tips and celebrity tea news to the inner workings of Bigelow Tea, a family run business.

Let us know what you think, let us know what you do and don’t like, and share your thoughts. Who knows, maybe you will be the one to come up with a new name for our next tea flavor!
