When it’s time to slow down and take a moment just for you, reach for a steaming cup of Bigelow Tea “Constant Comment” as generations of tea drinkers have done for almost 80 years! Company founder Ruth Campbell Bigelow created this legendary blend of black tea, orange rind, and sweet spices with the hopes of making a better cup of tea. After weeks of trial-and-error blending, she emerged with her first cup of specialty tea. Ruth gave the blend to friends who later told her the tea “was a source of constant comment,” and so the tea was named and a company was born. This beautiful cup of tea continues to spark conversation for tea fans who share a cup with friends and family. “Constant Comment” is definitely something to talk about, so let’s take a look at what Bigelow tea drinkers have to say about their favorite cup of tea.
Best Way to Start the Day
For many, drinking tea is a habit that brings comfort and a sense of calm. As one customer shared, "Drinking tea is habitual. I prepare my tea in the morning, and mimic the same motions each time. The act is soothing as much as the tea is."
For another tea lover, "Every morning I enjoy a couple of cups of ‘Constant Comment’ tea. It helps me wake up and start my day. The comfort of the sweet, warm tea makes me feel great about starting my day. I never miss a morning without my Constant Comment. It's the only tea I drink."
A Sense of Nostalgia
And for others, “Constant Comment” tea is a reminder of cherished memories with loved ones. "My grandmother made 'Constant Comment' tea. Then my mother. Then me. Now my daughter, and now my granddaughter. It is a much-loved tea in my family. Our 'comment'," shared one customer. Another “Constant Comment” fan even claimed, “Teas are like liquid memories for me, each flavor reminding me of moments spent with my daughter or friends.”
“Constant Comment” is a tea that spans generations, as one customer reminisced, "My Grandmother and Dad introduced me to a nice cup of hot tea at a young age. I have found memories of it. When I drink tea, I just feel warm and cozy and safe.”
It is also a tea that families can appreciate together. "My mother's favorite tea was ‘Constant Comment’, I have always used it, and now my grown children use it. My granddaughter is now learning to love it too. 4 generations” claimed one customer while another ruminated about how “Tea makes me feel the love both past and present.”
Stay Calm and Drink “Constant Comment”
The ritual of preparing and enjoying a cup of tea can be a moment of mindfulness in a busy day. As another customer shared, "The smell and then the taste of tea just calms me down and gives me a moment to just breathe. Mom and I love having tea together every day!" while another tea lover emphasized how the tea brings them a sense of calm. “From the anticipation of the first sip to the satisfaction of the last ahh, tea is my drink.”
