This book was written for the Bigelow Tea fans. It tells the story of a company that began with my mother, Ruth Bigelow’s vision. The year was 1945. That was the year my mom disappeared into her kitchen for a couple of weeks and when she came out, she had created what would become America’s first specialty tea, “Constant Comment”. A delicious blend of tea with orange peel and sweet spice. Seventy five years and three generations of our family later, this iconic tea is still going strong having brought many millions of Americans so much pleasure. Today Bigelow Tea, still totally family owned, is America’s leader in specialty tea. Our Family is very proud of this story. Hope you enjoy it!
