Dear Bigelow Tea Lovers, As a family tea company that started with my grandmother creating “Constant Comment” Tea 70 years ago, I want to let you know we read each of your comments. Tea is our passion and we realize that you are passionate about our "Constant Comment". Please know that we have never and will never (in my lifetime) change her original recipe. It is still the same recipe my grandmother blended in her kitchen. We use the same special recipe ingredients, from the hand-picked black tea, to the orange rind & spices that we have always blended into “Constant Comment”. To this day my parents are still the only ones who blend “Constant Comment” every month. Our packaging changed but never our recipe. We will continue to read & trial every sample of tea we get from customers that are not happy with their “Constant Comment” but the recipe is 100% the same as it was before we changed our packaging. “Constant Comment” has always been a blend of beautiful black tea & a secret recipe of orange & spice. With deep appreciation for your patience and passion for our products, Cindi Bigelow, 3rd generation President & CEO
very disappointed!
by Karen from Craryville on 1/4/2015 10:34:27 AM
This used to be one of my favorite tea flavors. What happened? The bags I purchased did not have the same taste as before and I did not care for the taste. I won't be buying any until they go back to the old recipe.
Not as good as the Individually wrapped packets
by Denise from Massillon on 12/2/2014 3:51:32 PM
The "4 bags in a pouch" packaging delivers a less-flavorful and aromatic tea experience compared to the individually-wrapped bags. I also dislike having to place any unused bags in a storage container if I'm only having one cup. Individually foil-wrapping eliminates the need for me to do so.
NOT THE SAME CONSTANT COMMENT
by Karen from Presque isle on 11/29/2014 2:00:58 PM
Just had the extended family here for Thanksgiving. We had a few bags left of "0ld Constant Comment" along with the newly packaged CC. NOT even close. Blind taste test and blind smell test says that you, Cindi Bigelow, you are feeding us a line of bull when you say nothing has changed. 15 long term CC drinkers disagree. Please let us know when you bring back the old recipe.
BEST TEA EVER
by Isabel from New Canaan on 8/7/2014 11:47:47 AM
Bigelow "Constant Comment " tea is the best tasting and most satisfying tasting orange spice tea currently on the market. The scent and taste of this tea causes me instant relaxation and also provides a nice caffeine laced pick me up in the middle of the day. I love this tea and drink it several times a day!

As a family company, we appreciate each and every comment found in our product reviews, and read each one very closely. We want you to know that we realize that these comments are being made by some of our most loyal and long term tea drinkers, who know the product best, and need to communicate to us that the taste is definitely not what they remember. I am also reading that the words "black tea" on the front panel of our new design is presenting some confusion. Black tea has always been the base ingredient in "Constant Comment" and was/is the first item listed in our ingredient statement. Our recipe always begins using hand-picked black tea from the top of the Sri Lankan Mountains, which is then carefully blended with our special recipe of orange and sweet spices. My parents are still the only ones that actually create "Constant Comment". I can promise you that we are still buying the EXACT same ingredients from the same suppliers. We continue to blend the “Constant Comment” following the same steps, absolutely no short cuts. Although we do taste all our raw ingredients prior to creating this "special blend recipe" the fact that you are not pleased with the flavor, has prompted us all to work as hard as possible to determine the cause. Our entire family reputation is based on the integrity of our name. We cannot and would not change my grandmother's recipe, as it’s this particular recipe that built our company. So I can promise you we all will be drinking "CC" here at Bigelow and overseeing our raw ingredients EVEN more carefully than ever, but we are 100% not changing our original recipe. Please know our commitment and dedication to that original recipe created by my grandmother in her kitchen is as strong today as it was when I joined the company 30 years ago. With deep appreciation for your passion to our products, Cindi
