Over 60 years ago my mother, Ruth Campbell Bigelow changed the
way we drink tea in the United States. An avid tea connoisseur,
Ruth thought tea drinkers like herself would enjoy a more zestfully
flavored tea. Happening upon a special colonial recipe that called
for tea to be blended with orange peel and spices, she decided to
try and re-create what she felt sounded like a wonderful idea.
After much trial and error in the family kitchen, she finally hit
upon what she thought was the best tasting recipe. After sharing
samples with family, friends and acquaintances, one of them
reported back that her new tea had caused nothing but constant
comments. Thus the "Constant Comment"® name was born.
In the ensuing years, my wife Eunice and I along with our two
daughters, Lori and Cindi, have carried on expanding Ruth's
idea with many new flavors in tea, herb teas, green teas, and iced
teas. Bigelow Teas have grown and grown until today you can find a
generous selection in virtually every supermarket in the United
States. Little could my mother ever have imagined that the little
tea company she started so many years ago would sell over a billion
cups of tea this past year.
My wife Eunice and I hope you will enjoy your visit to our web
site. Not only do we look forward to telling you about our teas but
we also have some new products that we're very excited about. And
our "On the Web" Gift Shop has some ninety different gifts that are
sure to please family and friends. Hopefully, you can find just the
right gift for that next occasion.
One last thing, because we're a family owned company we put lots
of time and attention into each and every tea we make. Our goal is
to make sure you get the best tasting cup of tea possible. Because
we think flavor is so important, we overwrap and seal each and
every tea bag in a stay fresh foil packet so that all the goodness
stays in until you get ready to have a cup of tea.
Please enjoy your visit with us. If you have any questions,
suggestions, or thoughts you'd like to share with us, just
send them along. We'd love to hear from you.
