This Is What You’ll Find In The Bag: An Inside Look At Bigelow Tea Ingredients

 

To Bigelow Tea, each and every ingredient tells a story. Call it commitment to quality or just call it delicious! Since 1945, Bigelow has sourced handpicked leaves from high-elevation gardens where the best tea plants are grown so all tea drinkers can enjoy the best possible cup of tea every time. And, as a third-generation family business, Bigelow selects ingredients only from suppliers who share the same passion for quality. Many of these trusted partners have worked with Bigelow Tea since the company’s founding, over 70 years ago, and are now, well, like family! To us, it’s the heart and soul of all we do—it’s what we like to call being #TeaProudly.

Lush Lemons

Take lemon for example. Did you know Bigelow Tea has partnered with the same family-owned lemon peel supplier for the last 30 years? Lemon peel is an essential ingredient in many Bigelow Tea flavors, and the perfect blend of sweetness and tartness is critical to deliver the flavor profile the Bigelow family requires. Hailing from Central Valley California (a chill place for a chill beverage), the lemons used are 100% USA-grown and meet strict standards. The Bigelow family’s supplier has perfected its state-of-the-art processes to harvest, juice, and zest some of the world’s best lemons since opening their groves in 1947.

M-m-m-mint

Another great example is our supplier of 100% American-grown spearmint which gets masterfully blended into several Bigelow mint teas. What makes this mint so special…mint is mint right? Well, this mint is grown exclusively in the northwest corner of the United States by a family company of multi-generational growers. We’ve been a loyal customer to the family since the early 1960s, when Bigelow Tea set out to develop a tea with the refreshing taste of spearmint. Today, a father-and-son team meticulously harvests acres of spearmint two times each year, with care and craftsmanship that cannot be beat, tracking all their mint from crop to cup for quality and accountability. Pretty, awesome, right?

Calabria… It Must Be Italian!

That brings us to one of Bigelow Tea’s most beloved varieties—the oh-so-irresistible Earl Grey! What makes Bigelow’s Earl Grey so special is the real oil of bergamot sourced year after year exclusively from Calabria, Italy. The single town of Calabria is where 80% of the world’s citrus bergamot fruit is grown. Since the 1970s, Bigelow Tea has worked with the family farmers in Calabria who supply the best oil of bergamot to create this classic blend. Another third-generation operation, these family bergamot farms are dedicated to expertly growing citrus bergamot fruit without the use of pesticides, using natural, organic methods from orchards that have been in existence for over 80 years. They’re all about the integrity of the flavor and the bergamot oil. We can totally get behind that.

From the top of the Sri Lankan mountains—where those high-elevation gardens flourish—to ingredients sourced from farms and companies proven through generations, Bigelow Tea has never and will nevercompromise on ingredients—or on the family recipes. You can count on that.

Bigelow Tea Owned Charleston Tea Plantation, A Tea Journey Past and Present

Bigelow Tea has been an American classic since 1945 and while we all know and love the company’s tasty tea, Bigelow has another gem to celebrate, the Bigelow owned Charleston Tea Plantation which is America’s largest working tea garden located on the historic Wadmalaw Island. This South Carolina destination has ideal climate for growing the Camellia Sinesis (tea!) plant. Bigelow purchased the plantation in 2003 and has created a literal tea oasis; besides producing American Classic Tea, the plantation is also a beautiful setting for weddingseducational tours, and even a variety of music festivals.

NPR shared what life is like on the Charleston Tea Plantation in an interview with America’s only fulltime tea taster, William Barclay Hall. Hall gives fascinating insight into growing tea the old-fashioned way:

  • The Charleston Tea Plantation grows cuttings in a nursery for four years instead of planting seeds. These bushes are, unbelievably, descendants of the same plants that were first brought to region in the 1700s.
  • Talk about a taste for tea — Hall is a third generation tea taster (his father and grandfather held the roles before him) who was trained in London. During his training, he tasted as many as 800 teas a day, five days a week!
  • Tea is one of the only commodities in the world bought and sold based on taste, according to Hall. Because tea is harvested on average every 15 days, the taste is always changing based on everything from the temperature, to the amount of rain, to the time of year.
  • Pests stay away from tea! The caffeine and tannins in tea repel insects, so the Charleston Tea plantation doesn’t need to use any pesticide, herbicides or fungicides.
  • Tea leaves are placed on “withering box” screens for 18 hours, and then macerated in a grinder. Hall then steeps, tastes and blends every single batch until he thinks it tastes absolutely right.

Now you know: a little piece of tea history continues on in the modern world, all thanks to Bigelow!

Brew A Brilliant Cup Of Bigelow Tea

We love our friends across the pond. And, clearly, there’s a shared passion for tea. But have you ever wondered what exactly sets England apart from the United States of America when it comes to brewing a pot of tea? Well, a couple of things. Bigelow Tea has the scoop.

For starters, though, a bit of history.

The tea culture in America is an important thread in the fabric of the history of the United States. Tea was originally imported by early Dutch settlers in the 17th century, and became very popular. Over time, most tea was imported through Great Britain and the large population of early English immigrants passed their tea drinking customs to the colonists. However, tea and tea taxes soon became a point of contention between the American colonies and Great Britain. In 1776, angry Colonists dumped the tea cargo from British ships into the Boston Harbor (The Boston Tea Party), which became a precipitating event of the American Revolutionary War. And for a while there, tea drinking was considered unpatriotic. Fast-forward several hundred years to today, where 82% of Americans drink tea—that’s more than 158 million people who count tea as a top beverage choice.

Talk about #TeaProudly!

Anyhow, today, both Brits and Americans often steep a tea bag (an American invention, by the way, no biggie) in a cup of hot water. And while Americans are more likely to enjoy their tea over ice (can we get a pitcher of sweet tea, please?), we can all agree that a splash of milk or sweetener is an acceptable form of deliciousness. Also, Americans are known to explore a myriad of flavors, whereas the most popular tea in Britain is a simple cup of black tea.

Whatever your tea style – whether you’re an Anglophile or an adherent to the Americanized trends of tea – you want to make sure your tea is brewed right. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Start with premium quality tea and fresh cold water. Cold water is essential to making a great cup of tea. It’s the oxygen in the water that opens up the tea leaf for full flavor extraction so always allow tap water to run for 30 seconds before filling tea kettle. If you prefer to use bottled water, shake the bottle to aerate (oxygenate) the water.
  2. Chill out (or off). When using a teapot, take the chill off the pot by rinsing it with hot water.
  3. Boil, baby, boil. For black, oolong, herb and rooibos teas, always bring water to a rolling boil then immediately pour over tea. For green and white teas, bring water just to the point where tiny bubbles begin to form then pour over tea.
  4. But, you know, whatever. All Bigelow Tea packages list recommended brew times but as a general rule, black is best enjoyed when steeped 2-4 minutes, green teas for 1-3 minutes, herb teas for 4 minutes, or whatever time you prefer!

Regardless of your preferences, we think it’s fair to say that tea is warm and cozy; it soothes souls, connects people, invites conversation and makes memories. So, whether you’re taking builders tea in England or waking up to a mug of herbal bliss in the U.S. of A., raise your cup and share the experience with those close to you for a drink we all love. Tag #TeaProudly with your favorite way to enjoy a cup!

How To Make An Amazing Outdoor Garden (You Can Use Tea!)

Yes!!! April is National Garden Month so that means it’s time to get ready to enjoy all those gorgeous colors that will bloom soon (if some haven’t already)! Plus, it’s that time of year to take on an outdoorsy project – like making your own garden of course!

Bigelow Tea has a lot of experience doing just this- our community garden 

grows fresh ‘n’ delicious goodies such as tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, squash and basil. We even donate our bounty to local nonprofit organizations where they help feed those who may be less fortunate.

And of course, Bigelow Tea has also cultivated a rather, um, large garden—the Charleston Tea Plantation! (See the pic of all the rows of beautiful tea above!)

On a smaller scale, whether you are interested in growing your own garden so you can feed your family or help give to others- here’s a super idea: You can start a garden using tea bags! How cool is that? Try some of these tips from a tea fan:

  1. Begin with a plate, platter or disposable serving tray lined with unbleached paper towels.
  2. Place moistened tea bags, which have been prepared normally using boiling water, on the tray.
  3. Using a small blade/knife or your fingers, make a small slit in the tea bags (large enough to plant your seeds).
  4. Take 2-3 seeds and push them into the slit that you made in the tea bag so that the seeds are slightly covered by the tea leaves.  Keep in mind that because the tea leaves are moist, some of the contents of the tea bag will get on your fingers- don’t worry, just make sure that the seed is in place.Put your tea bag garden in a sunny area and wait for your seeds to sprout.  Be sure to keep the paper towels moistened1 Depending on sun exposure, temperature and watering, seeds should begin to sprout in 10-15 days. When watering, pour water onto the paper towels, not directly onto the tea bags.
  5. Once you have a small sprout, take the whole tea bag and plant it in either a raised bed or container.  The tea bag will become fantastic compost for the garden!

Another simple way to get gardening is to start with herbs. It’s an easy way to get going with that farm to table concept!

‘Fess Up: How Often Do You Snack?

Noshing, munching, nibbling- whatever you want to call it, Americans love snacking! In today’s crazy busy culture, snacking on-the-go instead of sitting down to three square meals is truly becoming a way of life. Whether you are indulging at your desk at work, grabbing a bite when shuttling the kids to classes, or fueling up after a workout, snack time is all the time! Need proof? Read these fascinating stats from Mintel, a market research provider:

  • Millennials are more likely than any other generation to snack four times a day or more.
  • 94% of Americans are snacking at least once per day.
  • Snacking now accounts for 50% of all eating occasions and many Americans say that snacking helps them meet daily nutritional requirements.
  • 37% of the time, a snack replaces a meal.

When you hear the word “snack,” we wouldn’t blame you if it invokes visions of candy bars, chips and cookies. But “snacking” doesn’t have to mean eating junk. For example, this Chai Shortbread cookie recipe from Bigelow Tea fan by Swathi @ South Indian Kitchen is just made for grabbing and then going! Plus, it’s packed with good-for-you ingredients.

Chai Shortbread Cookies

Ingredients

For making Chai short bread cookies:

  • 1cup (130g ) all purpose flour
  • ¼cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • ¼cup (33g) powdered sugar
  • ¼teaspoon salt
  • Bigelow Vanilla chai tea packet
  • ½cup butter

For Chai spice mix:

  • 6cardamom
  • 2inch cinnamon
  • 1/2inch dry ginger/ ¼ teaspoon dry ginger powder
  • ¼teaspoon nutmeg
  • 4black peppercorn
  • For chai spice sugar
  • ½teaspoon chai spice
  • 2tablespoon sparkling sugar

Instructions

In a kitchen aid stand mixer add butter, sugar, powdered sugar cream well. To this add flour, salt and vanilla chai packet and mix well until everything combined well.
Scrape the dough out of the bowl and warp it in a parchment paper. Freeze the dough, or chill for at least 30 minutes.
Make chai spice powder by grinding all the ingredients for chai spice. Then mix the chai spice with sugar and set aside.
To bake, preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat. Spread the dough into ¼ inch sheet and cut out using your favorite cookie cutter. Then roll the dough into chai spice sugar. Place the cookie on the baking sheet and bake until the edges are just beginning to brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks. Store cooled cookies in an airtight container.

You also might want to try thinking out of the box when it comes to snacking – such as out of the tea box, that is! Tea like Salted Caramel and Vanilla Chai just may be the ultimate go anywhere treat! Simply throw some teabags in your purse or pack, and curb those cravings wherever you can grab hot water. Sometimes a nice mug of tea is just what your body needs to feel revived, refreshed and refueled!

Here is an idea: if you’re jonesing for something sweet, keep a teabag of a savory caramel or chocolate flavor handy to help you beat the battle of the bulge, yet still indulge!

Grab A Mug of Bigelow Tea And #RELAX With These 12 Stress-Relieving Tips

Does your stress stress you out to the point where you’re too stressed to deal with stress? Ugh. That’s the worst… It’s simple for people to tell you to just let it go, but sometimes, that’s easier said than done, right? Right. That’s why Bigelow Tea is equipping you with a few tips to get you through those challenging moments. And given that it’s Stress Awareness Month, there’s no better time, really! So, grab a mug of your favorite tea (BONUS TIP!) and scroll on down. Consider it our version of a pep talk.

  1. For starters, try to change your perception on how to handle stress. Be honest about what is working for you, and what’s not.
  2. Learn to say “no” when it’s appropriate. You’ll feel so much better once you begin to incorporate this into your life.
  3. Have the courage to ask for help when you need it! Whether you’re tackling a project or just need someone to talk to, asking for help is the first step towards positive progress.
  4. Give back. Performing random acts of kindness may be the secret to alleviating social anxiety, according to research. Studies have also shown that being nice makes us happier, less stressed and may even help us live longer. Oh, and don’t forget the whole altruism aspect… When you’re nice to someone, you just feel good. You have a bigger smile and an even bigger heart.
  5. Find better ways to manage your time by making a schedule or to-do list. Check, check, check… It’s just as rewarding to cross those items of a list as it is to complete them.
  6. Naturally Savvy, a good friend to Bigelow, suggests keeping it simple in the kitchen. While there are moments that call for fancy meals, a delicious, nutritious dinner can come together in 20 minutes or less. Another great trick is to plan your meals out ahead of time.
  7. Speaking of meals, take a look at what you’re eating and drinking. We found that some foods may even help reduce our crazy anxiety and help refuel for, well, life. After all, we all need the right fuel to conquer tomorrow and the next day and the next.
  8. We often take our stress home with us after a busy day, but taking some time to brew a hot cup of tea can be just the thing to slow down. And studies have shown that l-theanine, which is found in tea, is a powerful little amino acid which promotes relaxation and helps reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and irritability – all without making you drowsy.
  9. Sleep better. Start making some snooze-inducing changes to feel rested and raring to go instead of wanting to hide under the covers. Nix the bedtime screen time, and try a hot bath or some gentle stretching.
  10. Practice self-care. It’s a fab way to recharge your mind, body, and spirit. Develop a mantra, breathe, drink a cup of tea, take a bubble bath, hug someone, cry or tidy up. Even a minute doing one of these things can help you feel better.
  11. Get your blood moving! Exercising is a great stress-reliever! Being active can boost your feel-good endorphins and increase your overall health. Go take a walk or get to a fitness class. You’ll feel better afterward.
  12. Get outside. Harness the power of nature for easing stress. In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.”

And while you’re drinking the wild air, why not drink a mug of tea? Aside from the benefits listed above, going through the ritual of boiling and steeping can help you take a step back. And tea is practically the mascot for a relaxing time. So, the next time you’re stressed, don’t look at it as a frazzled moment, look at it as an opportunity to #TeaProudly (a time when you are a proud tea drinker knowing you are doing good for yourself). Share your secret weapon against stress and share your favorite ways to unwind….tag your tips with #TeaProudly so we can all learn!

5 Bigelow Tea Sustainability Efforts That Celebrate Earth Month … All Year Long

Earth Month is all of April so let’s celebrate!

Anyone and everyone can do something good for the Earth this month (and, well, all year round!), whether it’s big or small. And that includes Bigelow Tea– it’s about practicing business philosophies that help, not harm. In fact, it’s in our mission statement: “Do the right thing and good things will follow.”

So why do the right thing for the planet? As third generation president and CEO Cindi Bigelow says, “Being responsible is not something my family does because we can do good things, but because we strongly believe that we should and need to do good things, whether it’s for the community, for our employees, or for the environment.”

Need some inspiration for ways to be earthier this month? Read on for some of Bigelow Tea’s famous “SustainabiliTea” efforts and get motivated!

  1. Supporting renewable energy and reducing emissions, our planet stays in good shape for future generations.  By installing 880 solar panels at our Connecticut headquarters, our yearly effort produces about 200,000 kWh which is enough energy to power 527 homes for an entire year, using nothing but the power of the sun.
  1. We’ve been reducing our energy use for years! This has led to a nearly 10 million kWh reduction where energy has been reduced by over 2.5 million kWh in just our Fairfield plant alone through energy efficiency measures. That’s the equivalent of planting 41 million trees. How have we done this? One way is by replacing light bulbs with energy efficient bulbs in offices in all our facilities. So simple, yet so effective – anyone can change their light bulbs to make a difference!
  1. Bigelow Tea has achieved “Zero Waste to Landfill” status. What that means is we’re following the guidelines of the Zero Waste Alliance, which says that a company can claim being a zero waste to landfill facility if no more than 10 per cent of their waste ends up in a landfill.
  1. Bigelow Tea, with the goal of preserving land, purchased the Charleston Tea Plantation in 2003 to save 127 acres of land from real estate development. Today, the plantation has hosted well over 100,000 visitors.
  1. We try to act on the bees’ behalf! Bigelow’s Green Team has planted flowers on our corporate property along an urban train track fence to help provide bees with a better natural habitat.

Feeling inspired now? We hope so!  And hey if you need more encouragement, check out these Bigelow Tea activities planned for each day of Earth Week (April 17-22):

  • Recycling drives for electronics, towels for local animal shelters and business clothing (women’s and men’s) to benefit  Dress for Success
  • Educational exhibits on container gardening, lighting , recycling and composting
  • Lunch and learn with  the Back Yard Bee Keepers Association
  • Plant tours of our facility to showcase our sustainability efforts and our solar panels
  • Local foods will be served in the cafeteria
  • Raffle prizes – packets of seeds, tee shirts, plants  and more

So how will you observe Earth Month? Let us know by sharing anywhere online and tag with #TeaProudly!

Bigelow Tea Is Sweet On Caramel

Hey, tea lovers, let’s talk caramel. This decadent flavor is exactly what you need in your life—especially today, given it is National Caramel Day. Thank goodness, Bigelow Tea has got you covered. Each of our caramel teas have *real* pieces of caramel in the tea bag. Yes, you heard that correctly… little nuggets of bliss that make each flavor—Vanilla CaramelCaramel Chai and Salted Caramel—a heckuva lot yummier. All are a little bit sweet, a little bit salty, a lot creamy and butter-y rich and totally ahhh-mazing.

Besides delicious, what exactly is caramel? And why on earth do we all love it so much!? From sauces to wrapped treats, caramel is a versatile piece of sweetness. While its exact history is unknown, it is documented that around 1650, American settlers were making hard candies in kettles. Between this time and the early 1880s, candy makers began to add fat and milk while boiling sugar and water, creating what is now known as ooey-gooey caramel. Caramel candy’s popularity increased greatly when Milton S. Hershey opened Lancaster Caramel Company in 1886. Soon after, caramel candies were being shipped across the United States and to Europe.

Jump ahead to today and check out how Bigelow Tea rocks caramel: Salted Caramel is an all-natural blend of hand-picked black tea and caramel with just a hint of salt; Caramel Chai Black Tea is made with spices, natural caramel chai flavor and molasses crystals; and Vanilla Caramel is smooth and sweet, thanks to the rich caramel and creamy vanilla ingredients. Pick a flavor, add a splash of cream and a hint of sweetener and you’ll have the perfect bit of awesomeness in your mug of tea!
