Review: Bigelow Constant Comment Black Tea

The Bigelow original. No recipe makes us prouder. To this day members of the Bigelow family are still the only ones who blend this secret recipe of black tea, rind of oranges and sweet spice. One sip & you will know there is still no tea like it… take a whiff then enjoy the one and only “Constant Comment”.

Bigelow Tea

This is an interesting blend. With an overwhelmingly potent orange flavor, I’m not quite sure how harmonious it mixes with the strength of the black tea (and other flavors? sweet spice? Forget it). The tea has a more sweet rather than spicy taste (and perhaps even somewhat medicinal), and even as I drain my cup, I can’t quite nail how I feel about it. In any case, I’m certainly not in love and not interested in trying it cold. Though I’m aware this is one of Bigelow’s proudest blends, I can’t recommend this mixture.
