Bring Back the Tea with Lemon
by Zephyr from Phoenix on 1/14/2018 1:12:50 PM
Please bring back the American Breakfast with Lemon!!! It is so delicious, and the lemon flavor is perfect! I'm really going to miss starting my morning with this cup of tea.
Please Bring This Back!!!
by Dave from Marion on 1/9/2018 9:36:35 AM
I am a non-coffee drinker and this tea was AWESOME!!!! I was buying up some tea for the colder times of the year this fall when I realized I couldn't find more American Breakfast to stock up on. This tea ruled! Even if I had to order it online and pay a bit more it would be worth it!
Please Bring It Back!
by Amy from Athol on 1/7/2018 12:20:18 PM
This is my favorite tea, and like everything else I like, it seems to have been discontinued. I raided a local close out store just before Christmas and bought as many as I could. Judging from other reviews here, I would not be the only repeat buyer of this stuff if it were brought back.
Black Tea with Honey
by Cecilia from Littleton on 1/6/2018 6:22:13 PM
This tea is absolutely delicious! Please make it available again. I would buy several cases of it if it comes back!
American Breakfast Tea w/Lemon
by Yolanda from Las Vegas on 12/17/2017 6:38:18 PM
I've been a tea drinker for my entire life and I must say that this tea is my favorite, hands-down! Please bring this one back. Those of us who drink this particular blend are really lost because it's not stocked in any stores and you no longer carry it. I implore you to reconsider. American Breakfast Tea with Lemon is a keeper!!
by Latoiya from Long Beach on 12/8/2017 9:11:17 PM
I order American Breakfast by the case and to find out you no longer have it available is devastating!! I don't even add sweeteners to the tea because I love the taste hot or on ice. I've even turned my co-workers on to it!! Please, Please, Please bring it back!!
American Breakfast with Honey
by Katherine from Fritch on 11/19/2017 1:41:18 PM
PLEASE! Please bring back American Breakfast with Honey and licorice. I am addicted to this flavor. I refuse to buy anymore Bigelow products till you do.
Bigelow, LISTEN to your customers!!
by L from NORTH HIGHLANDS, CA on 11/17/2017 12:57:22 PM
I stumbled upon this tea after my Dr advised I lay off coffee & went exploring. American Breakfast tea beats all the others, hands down. No sooner did I declare this my new favorite, then I couldn't find it again when I went to buy a 4th box. Ugh!!! PLEASE read the reviews & listen to your market - we want American Breakfast tea back!!!!!! Please
American Breakfast with Honey
by Steffany from Albuquerque on 11/6/2017 1:41:36 PM
Please bring back American Breakfast with Honey! Loved this tea.. so sad I am not able to buy it anymore.
American Breakfast with Honey
by Arron from Firestone on 10/18/2017 12:39:07 AM
I am absolutely crushed that I can't find this magnificent tea. I was given a box by a friend a week ago because he was moving and was trying to find ways to make room. Had I known that I was not going to find this ever again, I would have made it last more than a week. Truly one of the best teas I've ever had. Please reconsider bringing it back. It appears many are missing it.
Bring back American Breakfast and with Honey!
by Mimi from washington state on 9/26/2017 6:39:24 PM
I have drank all of my American Breakfast with Honey and now on the last box of American Breakfast. I am so upset that I can't find the teas to buy ANYWHERE!! Please, please bring both teas back.

by Heidi from Waterford on 8/15/2017 8:43:29 AM
All flavors just great and I can't find them anywhere. Bring them all back. So need a cup of the honey blend this morning!
Loose leaf version
by Michelle from Cheyenne on 8/10/2017 12:16:06 PM
We tried this on a whim, and it quickly became my husband's favorite breakfast tea (not counting a few tins we actually bought in Scotland) but we frequently drink loose leaf tea. I like to combine this with my Constant Comment. Please make a loose leaf version for our automatic tea pot!
Where's American Breakfast Honey?
by Machele from Byron on 7/22/2017 11:38:53 AM
What happened to the American Breakfast Honey? I've been looking for it for a long time and now I don't see it here either. Nor can I find either of the other two American Breakfast teas. Please bring back the honey.
American Breakfast Tea
by Rosemary from North Haven, CT on 6/21/2017 10:09:18 AM
What happened??? I can't find this tea anywhere. Did you stop making it?? I loved this tea. Please get it back on the shelfs of the stores. Does anyone carry it? Did you stop making it?????? Bring it back!!!
Bring American Breakfast back! with HONEY!!
by Jennifer from Pittsburgh on 5/5/2017 10:34:03 AM
I have been searching for this every time I go to the store and can't find it anywhere!! I love this tea not even for the extra caffeine just for the flavor. I am a constant tea drinker, coffee upsets my stomach and I prefer tea. I drink many of your other flavors constant comment, earl grey, plantation mint but this became my go to morning cup at work. I loved the honey flavor because I didn't have to add honey and it was perfect every time. Please bring this back even if it doesn't have the extra caffeine, just as a flavor option. Thank you.
American Breakfast tea is the best!
by Mary from Plainfied on 4/20/2017 10:59:00 AM
Please ,please ,please bring this tea back to the supermarkets! I just discovered it last year, but now you don't sell it in the stores anymore.Very disappointed !I tried this after I could no longer drink coffee because of the things that it did to my body ,and I love coffee, hated to give it up, but I will give it up for this tea! The flavor is great!
Reconsider please
by Michelle from St. George on 3/18/2017 8:13:23 AM
I've drank this for a long time and now I don't even know what a close substitute would be. Please reconsider and bring it back. My tea of choice!!!
American Breakfast Tea
by Fred from Milwaukee on 3/12/2017 3:49:56 PM
If I would have known you, ( RC Bigelow Inc.) were going to discontinue production and sales of American breakfast tea, I would have bought more. At least a case, If I had I would have enough for at least 6 months I hope it will be considered for bringing it back on the market. Fred B.
What Happened???????
by Wendy from Albemarle, NC on 2/20/2017 12:46:07 PM
I finally find a tea that I can't get enough of and you take it off the market??? I don't know how you could say that no one bought it because out here they could not keep it in stock enough!!! Please bring it back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by Jean from Anderson, SC on 2/18/2017 9:21:56 AM
Please make this available, at least online, in k-cups!!!
American Breakfast
by Charles from Sand Springs on 1/28/2017 3:25:49 PM
This is my favorite black tea. I have been drinking this in place of coffee. Since I couldn't find it in the store, I have gone back to coffee. I miss it though. I just cant believe it wasn't selling enough.
Please bring this product back!!
by Francine from Oxford, PA on 1/21/2017 8:28:25 AM
This tea is great. It has a nice full bodied taste and the best part, it gives a caffeine boost when you need one. I don't drink coffee and this tea is wonderful. Please bring it back to our shelves. There is a following of folks who love this tea and your company is doing us a disservice by discontinuing such a delicious tea. Maybe your marketing team didn't do their job advertising this product like it should have been...
American Breakfast Tea
by Catherine from Vienna on 1/19/2017 4:15:07 PM
I am so sorry that American Breakfast is no longer on the grocery shelves. It is hard to believe that people were not buying it. I found its taste superb. I used my last two American Breakfast tea bags when I had company and my company loved the tea. You can imagine how I felt when I found out that there was no more American Breakfast in my local grocery store. Boo, hoo!
by Randi from Star Valley on 1/10/2017 6:55:00 PM
Love love love this tea. No coffee for me when there's such great flavor!
Love it
by Kim from Dahlonega on 12/30/2016 4:21:28 PM
Best tea ever. Finally found it in my local Ingles.Bought 2 boxes 😃
American Breakfast is the Bestest!
by Eileen from Hamiltion on 12/28/2016 1:12:12 AM
WHY can I no longer find this tea anywhere??? I have everyone on the lookout for it and apparently, it's a wild goose chase. I see other reviewers are equally upset and befuddled. I purchase most of the teas that you make, truly, but American Breakfast is my favorite by far, and now it's order online only?? I don't understand. You must not have given it enough time for people to try it, because if they do, they'll love it! Please bring it back to the stores, if you have, and it looks as though you did, remove it from the shelves. Mostly, don't stop making this great tea!

Where did it go?!?!?
by Lauren from Dallas on 12/15/2016 10:00:29 AM
My favorite tea has disappeared from shelves!!! Please bring it back to the stores!
Best Tea I have found yet!
by Charlie from Sarasota on 11/30/2016 1:57:35 PM
This tea used to be sold in Wal-Mart but I have not been able to find it in quite some time. It is by far the best of all the tea I have had. I am trying to back off of coffee and this tea is the perfect replacement and takes less time, cost, and energy to prepare. I also hate to drink water so this tea is perfect because I can stay hydrated (better than coffee hydrated) and get my kick start whenever I need. Flavor is 110% amazing and is everything I want from a tea flavor profile! Lets bring it back to stores!!!
Cannot find American Breakfast in stores anymore
by Meg from Cleveland on 11/27/2016 10:48:04 PM
I have enjoyed the American Breakfast with lemon for months now. I drink it instead of Constant Comment on the days when I need a little pick-me-up in the morning, but I cannot find it in the store where I have bought it for months. Is the tea being discontinued, or does the store just not carry it anymore?
Bigelow 50% more caffeine tea... Love it! PLEASE BEING IT BACK.
by Courtney from Middleburg on 11/25/2016 8:46:58 PM
Hello! I have been drinking the 50% more caffeine tea for about two years.. I couldn't find anything to help me wake up and enjoy the day ... until I found this tea.. I can no long find it in any store I go to ranging from Georgia to Florida and I would really like to know if it will come back on the shelfs again soon? Thanks in advance! I am a night shift Nurse and I depend on this tea to keep me awake all night.
by Jay from Topeka on 11/15/2016 12:13:16 PM
American breakfast has been my favorite...and, it seems, quite a favorite with many others. Good robust tea flavor that is an great substitute for coffee. Thanks a lot for discontinuing a popular blend to make room for yet another blend of nondescript herbal crap nobody wants.
Bring it back, please.
by Yusef from North Augusta on 11/14/2016 8:04:50 PM
Hello, i am a true fan of your American Breakfast tea. I especially love the one with 50% more caffine. I live in the aouthern tip of South Carolina and for some reason i can't find this tea anymore. I guess i will just have to order the case. Which is fine with me. I do like the idea of a kcup though. Thank you!
by Martha from Fairfield on 11/1/2016 3:36:31 PM
Just love this tea and I do not see it in the K-cups anymore. Please bring it back to that way again.
Good tea
by Americo from Houston on 7/19/2016 4:00:23 AM
Love this tea! Makes a fairly strong cup of tea that I enjoy very much, in the afternoon as well as in the morning. Wasn't this available as a tin of loose tea? Will that be back?
Wheeee! ABT works and rules
by Thomas R from Medford on 4/26/2016 12:22:52 AM
I am bought a box and not done anything with it for a few months, then made one cup with one bag, very strong for me as normally I will make a pot with one bag. I have found American Breakfast to be a lifesaver late at night if I want an extra oomph, as recently at tax time. The taste is robust--and I didn't have some of the nuisance effects of coffee. I have now bought several boxes of ABT (including an added honey variety by mistake--I avoid flavored teas). Sadly American Breakfast seems to be disappearing from the stores; today a clerk told me it had been discontinued. From what I read here it appears I may have to buy it by the case from Bigelow. This is the first time I have bought any Bigelow teas.
by Latoyea from Cambridge, MA on 3/20/2016 4:59:49 PM
Hello! It's Latoyea, again, and this time I'm back home in Cambridge, MA. My mother did me a solid and bought me the American Breakfast Tea. I thought I would have the same reaction to it as I did with the American Breakfast Tea and Honey - I was wrong. This tea is great! I LOVE it. We have not found the coffee filters yet some it's been tea for me for my caffeine fix. This tea, albeit plain, is perfect for adding the right amount of honey, lemon or even CoffeeMate! I am going to be buying Bigelow teas from now on. Oh, and thank you for the coupon.
Great tea!
by Christina from Moorestown on 3/7/2016 4:09:36 AM
This is really great tea! My husband is allergic to coffee but we both like caffeine. This tea is the kick needed. It is smooth and we both sometimes drink it plain.
My Favorite Tea
by Siobhan from Norwich on 1/8/2016 10:42:00 AM
I love this tea so much. I took a chance and bought a case of six boxes online before I had even tried it after seeing the positive reviews. It has become my favorite! It's so smooth and dark! I drink it plain!
by Sandy from Decatur on 12/17/2015 2:59:10 PM
Love this tea!! My question would be, why am I only given the option to buy a case of 6 boxes of K-Cups? Why are the individual boxes of 12 not sold?
by Mary from Harker Heights on 12/9/2015 4:05:15 PM
Sounded good when I first saw it on the self at my local WalMart. It is better than good, I've been sharing it with complete strangers who were drinking tea. Wish I had those bags back that I gave away 'to try'. My Wal-Mart discontinued carrying it. Now I have to order. Can you appeal to Wal Mart to carry American Breakfast again? I'm bugging them; if they only carry the 'plain' we could add our own lemon and honey when the taste calls for it. Please, it's the best. Yes, I still have Constant Comment on my Tea Shelf. And English Tea Time since American Breakfast is unavailable. Time to order.
American Breakfast Tea is Amazing
by Carrie from Lockport on 11/23/2015 7:52:13 AM
I received a complimentary bag in my box of Earl Grey tea, so I decided to try it before I had my "regular" tea. The American Breakfast Tea is amazing, nice clean taste and packs a nice caffeine punch too!!
Complimentary tea
by Jessica from Oxford on 10/11/2015 8:34:50 PM
I tried a complimentary tea bag of American breakfast tea, and it is fantastic. It was so great I even drank it in the middle of the night, which was obviously a mistake. Then again is it truly a mistake if the tea is as great as this?

Awesome tea. Love everything about it. Please make a k cup version and I will be thrilled.
My Morning Get Up and Go!
by E C from Las Vegas, NV on 9/13/2015 8:41:37 PM
I opened a box of Earl Grey and found a sample of American Breakfast tea! Tried it the next morning and to my surprise I found it gave me the energy and staying power to focus on all my morning activities. Now I will not depart from making it my morning cup! Coffee does not interest me as I find the energy staying power of this tea outlasts any coffee I could drink! When my stock gets down to 3 boxes, I order six more!
Love this tea!!!
by Leslie from Trabuco Canyon on 8/27/2015 3:11:24 PM
I bought my first box just a few months ago and now drink at least two cups of it a day. I was at Wal Mart to buy more and they also are discontinuing it so I bought all 6 boxes. Maybe Bigelow reads their reviews and will keep it on the market if it is being done away with!
Love, Love, Love
by Jessie from Pensacola on 8/24/2015 9:59:14 AM
We live and die by this tea in my house. I am allergic to coffee, so as a life-long tea devotee, I am always on the lookout for the best. American Breakfast is, by far, my preference, even over other more expensive mall/boutique brands. Between myself and my husband, we go through, on a busy day, 3 bags each. I was disappointed to learn at my local grocery store, Publix, that they were no longer going to stock American breakfast, despite its popularity. I hope I am able to continue to special order and that Bigelow is not discontinuing it entirely.
by Madonna from Sturgeon Bay on 12/11/2014 8:18:59 PM
I tasted American Breakfast for the first time today. All I can say is WOW... and thank you. This is NOT my usual reaction to any tea--no matter what flavor or brand. This could be my new favorite.....um well ...not sure about that. You see Constant Comment has been my favorite for almost 50 years. I discovered it as an undergrad at the Univ of Ill--my dorm room was the haven for all the girls who wanted a tea break from hitting the books at night. Constant Comment was the tea of choice. But back to American Breakfast tea. Like i said--WOW. It just might replace my morning cup of coffee.
by Linda from Mtn.View on 11/14/2014 12:07:14 PM
This is an awesome tea!!!!I was drinking Morning Thunder by Celestial Seasonings but it is too hard to find...this is a wonderful substitute......nice & strong & lots of caffeine....GREAT TEA!!!!!!!!!!!my new tea of choice..course I still love the constant comment & English teatime....thanks Bigelow....
Excellent Coffee Replacement
by Prop from Billerica on 9/21/2014 3:49:33 AM
I am a recent tea convert due to issues with coffee, and really, to me it just doesn't taste good. I was excited to see Bigelow had a new tea with twice the caffeine which brings it right up to coffee level. I have tried both the regular and with honey. A bit bitter (to me anyway) due to tea extract but add some sugar and milk and this tea is divine. I love it. Adding a bit of ice to cool it down does not change the overall delicious flavor. Highly recommended, especially for us coffee converts. Thank you Bigelow!
