Constant Comment
by Rowena from San Diego on 4/25/2014 6:56:11 PM
I have been drinking Constant Comment for 50 years. Really. Probably 4 cups per day. But recently, you changed to a strong black tea which is bitter and unpleasant. I cannot taste the orange or spice at all: just the unpleasant strong tea similar to strong Scottish tea. I can't drink it and am looking for an alternative. Whatever you did, you have lost a long-term customer. And I do love my tea...

I fell in love with this tea years ago. Then something changed!!!! I thought is was me. Then suddenly I realized the reason I was not getting the full flavor of the tea was that the "COMPANY" DOWNSIZED the tea leaves causing people like me to use LESS water OR MORE teabags per cup! AGAIN paying more for LESS!!!!! I would rather pay more and have the same great taste of the tea that I fell in love with than the watered down tea they have been selling for years!!!!
Changed Constant Comment
by Lori from Roann on 5/6/2014 5:53:18 AM
I tried to think that it was just me. However I found some "old" boxes of Constant Comment at my local mom and pop grocery store and bought them out. in side by side trials with both kinds of tea the old one has far more taste and aroma. The new box is weak, thin, and really has a bitter, quality. Whatever you have done PLEASE undo!
Constant Comment Black Tea
by Ruth from Raleigh on 5/9/2014 6:14:43 PM
I have been drinking this tea every morning for many, many years and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't know what you did when you redesigned the box and I guess the tea, but it is not the same. As others have said, I will have to find a new morning tea. There is no flavor and it is very weak. Sorry, you'll be losing another customer.
Constant Comment constantly changing
by Leslie from Houston on 5/19/2014 10:27:27 PM
I still remember when one tea bag of Constant Comment tea could deliver 2 cups of wonderful orangy flavorful brew. Around the time of the new box design, I needed 2 tea bags for one cup that was still mildly weak but still had the orange tones. Now the the Constant Comment box I bought last week tastes more like your English Breakfast tea and I only need one bag per cup. The pouch it is packed in smells right, almost like you are spraying the pouches with orange essence. But the tea bags do not smell orangy at all and the bits of orange are so small, they are not even visible. Like the other reviewers, I would rather spend more if you are doing this to keep costs down and get the Constant Comment tea that I remember.

My old friend is back
by Carol from San Antonio on 6/13/2014 2:17:59 PM
I have sympathy for people who are dismayed when something is changed, so I do not want to hurt anyone's feelings. I was drinking Constant Comment, 2 large cups in the morning and often a cup at night, daily since the 80's until maybe 3 or 4 years ago (unsure on exact date). It used to be my one luxury when I scrimped on everything else. A few years ago it started tasting like the spices were not blending into the background or something, maybe too much orange rind, I have no idea. Hard to describe but it seemed more pungent than aromatic, and bitter (not quite the right word), unlike what I was used to. I thought maybe my tastes had changed after menopause or something, it didn't occur to me the recipe might have changed. I finally quit drinking it after all those years. I tried it again this month and now it seems back to being more like I remember when I used to drink it all the time. I had assumed when I quit liking it that maybe it was something about me (thought possibly I was becoming sensitive to a spice such as the orange rind or something), but now the tea is good again so maybe it wasn't me. Anyway, I would like it to stay the way it is, I am back to drinking it! I am basing this on the 40 count box, which never tasted the same as the 20 count, will have to try the 20 count. I am so glad to have this back.
Where are the spices?
by Betty from Danville on 6/17/2014 5:00:46 AM
Purchased my usual four boxes of Constant Comment yesterday, made a cup this morning. Tasted it and poured it out, wondering what went wrong with my every morning tea I have drank for the last 10 years.I made another cup and it tasted just as bad, as if all the spices have been left out, and has a terrible bitter taste. I was hooked years ago with my first cup and drink several cups each morning.Please bring back the original!!
What Happened?
by Valerie from Turlock on 6/30/2014 12:41:50 PM
I give this a "one-star" as this is a complaint. I have been noticing a difference in the quality of this tea, and am very disappointed in the company for changing their standards. If it does not get remedied, I will find another basic tea and infuse it with orange and clove myself. I have been a loyal customer for decades, so this is big disappointment.
something has changed
by Lillian from Murrells Inlet on 7/11/2014 1:29:36 AM
I have been drinking your Bigelow constant comment tea for 20 yrs, we loved this tea. Then something happened, the taste changed, and not for the good. Everyone in the family could tell there was a change in the taste. Not enough orange, and toooooo much spice. I have had to buy another brand of tea, and add my own orange rind for flavor. I can see others are not likeing the flavor either. Please change it back
Less is not more
by Al from Centennial on 7/12/2014 9:44:24 AM
I want to express my disappointment in your decision to save a few cents and reduce the quantity of tea per bag. I would think the savings are negligible as your costs for packaging have to be way more significant. I have made sun tea with Constant Comment for many years. This summer I really noticed that the amount of tea in each bag is significantly less. I hope you get the message that many of us are sending you.
A Sad Day
by Elizabeth from Dallas on 7/18/2014 8:45:17 AM
As noted by many others, Constant Comment has changed for the worse. I was hoping that I had bought a bad batch but after reading other comments I see that the mix has changed. The new mix is weak and flavorless. My daughter is a the third generation to drink Constant Comment in our family. This is to say, we have been drinking Constant Comment for over half a century. It is a family tradition. If I do not see "Original Mix" across the box I will not be buying Constant Comment again. It is a sad day.
Watery tasting Constant Comment
by sherry from oakley on 7/21/2014 12:50:32 AM
I used to love Constant Comment. Didn't buy it for a while and recently bought 2 boxes. Very watery now, very little flavor and looks to me like 1/2 the tea in a bag too. Wow. You guys are going to lose your customers.
terrible taste- chage back
by Carol from Joshua Tree on 7/25/2014 8:57:09 AM
Lost another customer! The new black tea Constant Comment is no longer a good tasting...now it is going to be "bad constant comments" to all I talk to. Please return to the old recipe.
