Ruth Bigelow - An American Classic

When Ruth Bigelow created "Constant Comment" tea in 1945, little could she have imagined that it would be America's most popular specialty tea.

The Story Behind Constant Comment

Join David C. Bigelow, Co-Chair of Bigelow Tea, as he tells the story of how Constant Comment tea was created by his mother, Ruth Campbell Bigelow, over 60 years ago.  Created in her kitchen in 1945, Constant Comment is truly an American classic.  It has been loved by generation after generation of tea drinkers.  And, most importantly, each and every tea bag is overwrapped and sealed in a stay fresh foil packet so that all the goodness and classic flavor is protected until you get ready to have a cup of tea.


Bigelow Tea's Community Challenge 

See how Bigelow Tea's 20th Annual Community Challenge fundraiser raised a record $60,000, the entirety of which will be distributed to thirteen local area charities.  More than 1,000 strong took the "challenge" and participated in Kids' Fun Run, 2-mile walk and 5K race.
