I think it might boil down to their superior packaging. You pay for this, of course. Each bag is enclosed in a moisture and air proof pouch, rather than the paper overwraps of practically everything else for bagged tea. Even though I put my tea into glass jars upon opening the box, the Bigelow wrappers seem to preserve freshness and aromas (which is what tea is all about) better. I too, love Bigelow's chamomile but don't have any now.

 

I've found that others with similar packaging (like Wegmans) don't have the same robust flavor. I think the major difference may be in the sourcing of the teas. The Bigelow chamomile 'tea' may be high-quality Egyptian grown.
