An all-time favorite. I grew up in a family of tea drinkers; and although I now tend to have a lot of coffee while I'm at work, I still drink almost exclusively tea when I'm at home. I generally prefer loose leaf teas - that way I know I'll get "the real thing," whereas tea bags tend to contain merely the leftovers of a harvest; little crumbs too poor in aromatic and other content to otherwise pass quality control standards.
The exception are Bigelow teas: and first and foremost among those their flagship, Ruth Bigelow's original "Constant Comment" with its recipe of black tea, orange grind and holiday spices (primarily cinnamon). Created by Mrs. Bigelow on the basis of an old colonial recipe over half a century ago, the blend soon became so popular among her friends that their "constant comments" of approval prompted Ruth and husband David Bigelow to found their own tea company. Since then, "Constant Comment" has long become a true classic ... and if you love tea, it is indeed the perfect refreshment; whether or not it's Christmas time. (E.g., it also makes for great iced tea in summer; particularly if you add a bit of lemon.)
If you're making more than a single cup of tea, and unless you like your tea *very* weak, you may want to rethink the company's measuring directions - based on the the "one bag per cup" ratio, you'll likely need two or more bags for an entire pot (depending on size), even when steeping an extra minute or two. That said, though ... wanna come over for a cuppa?...more info
Bigalow Tea The tea came quickly and was packaged well. It was as expected. Now I'll have my favorite tea on hand for some time and at a lower price....more info
The best tea, period... Constant Comment picked the right name. Everyone comments when they try this tea. It is the best tea I have found. The orange and clove add just the right hint of flavor and a great aroma. ...more info
Good Deal This is a good deal, and Amazon is responsible for a good deal of the good deals. :)...more info
memory making tea This is the tea of my youth, Friday nights at my best friend's house, brewed up properly in a pot or even just by the mug with a little honey. I like tea that's been steeped a while, and letting this tea sit a bit does not ruin the flavour. The orange highlights are just right and compliment the tea nicely. I can be brought out of the foulest mood by just the scent of the tea brewing in my cup. An excellent tea to have on hand for when you are under the weather, or for those cold winter evenings in front of the fire....more info
Excellent R.C. Bigelow, Inc. was begun in 1945 by Ruth Campbell Bigelow, a tea connoisseur who wanted to offer even more taste opportunities to American tea drinkers. Among the teas that Ruth blended up was an aromatic and highly flavorful mixture of black tea, orange rind and spices that she named "Constant Comment." Constant Comment is now one of the most popular specialty teas in America, and it is easy to see why!
Overall, I found this to be an excellent hot tea. You are first greeted with a full bouquet, and then receive a wonderful taste sensation. But, that's not all, Constant Comment also makes a great iced tea.
So, if you are looking for an exciting tea, one with a very different and yet truly enthralling flavor, then I recommend Bigelow's Constant Comment. (By the way, check out the interesting recipes on Bigelow's website!)...more info
the SPICE of LIFE, and TEAS!, too!!! When I tell you I LOVE this Tea, you better believe that I Mean it.
I drink two Teas. Twining's Earl Grey is my staple. Period. End of statement. I love it.
But, like all people, I just Love a break from every day. When I want a break, I turn to Bigelow's Constant Comment Tea. It is just THE BEST when you want something very special and to break from your day (or evening).
Constant Comment NEVER fails to make me go "Ahhhh", and also to make me smile (the truth). A secret here might just be home-made sugar cookies with it...(smile)! The orange/spice, combined with the flavor of the tea, and then the sweet richness of homemade sugar cookies are just "food for the gods", trust me. If you are familiar with Constant Comment, then you know what I am speaking of, if you are not....by all means, try some soon....You'll Just Love It! ~operabruin...more info
tea gotten the easy way I received the order promply- all was in order--saved time and energy at the grocery store!...more info
The best tea, hot or iced! I've been enjoying Constant Comment since I was first introduced to it as a teenager, and no other tea is so delicious. Having moved to Canada, I have been unable to find it in stores, so I was delighted to find I could order it here.
For tea lovers, definitely one to try! It's black tea with an assertive but not overpowering citrus and spice flavor, equally delicious hot or iced. The tea can also be used in baking; excellent recipes featuring Constant Comment and other Bigelow teas are available at [...]. I recommend the Constant Comment shortbread! Easy to make, and delicious, especially with a nice hot cup of tea....more info

Great tea, fast delivery right to my door! Within 1 business day of ordering this item, the tea was delivered to my house! Talk about service! As always this tea is one of my staples, nothing has changed, so another great purchase experience on Amazon!...more info
Orange Spice This tea has just the slightest hints of orange zest and a little spice. It reminds me of when I used to go to Seattle to my grandmother's house and we would have tea and her famous apple pie. A relaxing tea you can drink with honey or with milk and sugar. Orange Blossom honey is recommended.
Just right I have dry mouth because of a medical condition, so I drink a lot of liquids -- in my case, tea, nearly two gallons a day. (Of course, road trips take me longer than average!) I enjoy the flavor I get when using one bag of Constant Comment along with regular (daytime) and decaf (evenings) black tea each time I brew up a gallon. It's also very good by itself for a hot cuppa....more info
Timelessly Delicious We've ordered this to keep in the office and it's wonderfully packaged and easy to use. Getting the larger boxes adds the convenience of 4 tea bags per larger individual package (There are 10 large individual packages per box). There's less trash and it still stays fresh. The price is usually much better than the grocery store and it arrives within a day or two. ...more info
WONDERFUL TREASURES I ENJOY A GOOD CUP OF TEA EARLY IN THE MORNING. I AM NOT REALLY A COFFEE DRINKER. MY HUSBAND LOVES BIGELOW TEA ALSO....more info
Great hot tea! I have always enjoyed drinking this tea and I had a hard time keeping it in stock. So, I ordered enough to last a while at the same price I would have given for it at the grocery store....more info
Wonderful tea! We've brewed and drunk this for over 40 years! Ruth Bigelow created this tea about 1945. By about 1960, Constant Comment was sold as bulk tea, in a tea tin, at Jitney Jungle at I-44 & Peoria in Tulsa. I've still got one of the tins! My mother used to send me to the store. She'd brew the bulk tea in a tea caddie and have a glass of iced tea at hand all day long. I'd come in from playing and drink about half of her glass. (Half was the most I could get away with without scolding.) So I grew up drinking this. (Never learned to like American coffee.) We've traveled all over and have tried many fine teas, but this is our all-time favorite. Both Bigelow and Twinnings have many good teas, but nothing is quite as good as Constant Comment! ;^)
Now Constant Comment comes in bags in individual foil pouches. This has at least two advantages: the foil preserves freshness and allows one to carry his tea with him to work or school to brew fresh! The best way to brew Constant Comment is in an Iced Tea Pot. We have two Iced Tea Pots from about 1998. Just put two teabags in the holder at the top of the pot, fill with water and turn on. When the first container of water is done, refill and you'll have two quarts of strong tea from two bags! When brewed this way, the tea has no bitterness at all, so you don't even need lemon to adjust the bitterness!
The best way to sweeten tea is with local honey. Local honey will also tend to prevent allergic reactions to the local pollen and allieviate any hay fever that you may be experiencing. But be sure to get at least a quart of honey and put about 1 or 2 teaspoonfuls in a quart of tea! Enjoy!...more info
