Do You Heart Bigelow Tea?

btthurs_Do You Heart Bigelow Tea?

Whether it’s true love, a little crush or even just a platonic bromance, the gift of Bigelow Tea can’t be misinterpreted. It means you think tea rocks and you want to share it. No mixed messages there!

Sure, you can give someone candies with messages like “Tweet Me” or “Be Mine,” but they’ll be scarfed down in no time. A few boxes of tea, however, will last a bit longer keeping those warm thoughts of you lingering! That’s why, for Valentine’s Day, Bigelow Tea has put together what could possibly be the sweetest little two-pack of tea ever. Sweetheart Cinnamon and White Chocolate Obsession. Together. No joke. “Soul Mates” indeed.

And if you boycott Valentine’s Day, snag the Valentine Gift Duet for yourself. Tea, of course, always loves you back. So sip your tea, take a selfie and watch “Love Actually” in your jammies. No date needed. Like our friend, The Life of Jess, you might just become #obsessed with Bigelow Tea!

Bigelow Tea Is Buzzing Over National Honey Month

btwed_Bigelow Tea Is Buzzing Over National Honey Month

Since the beginning of time, honey has been used to sweeten what we eat and drink. And, of course, Bigelow Tea has always known that this nectar goes beautifully with tea. During September’s National Honey Month, we’re getting the buzz out about how to find quality honey, locally.

There are a number of places where we can buy this naturally sweet stuff. First, farmers markets are a great source as farmers and beekeepers offer samples and can answer questions. Natural food stores are another option. Or consider joining Community Support Agriculture (also known as a CSA), which is a network of farmers that sell their crops directly to you.

Honey in general is a golden color, yet not all types are alike. The color and flavor can depend on where the honeybees get their nectar. Honey can have a lighter hue and a mild taste or be darker with a stronger flavor. In fact, according to the National Honey Board, there are more than 300 types of honey available in the United States, from flower sources ranging from alfalfa to tupelo!

At Bigelow Tea, we are quite enamored with honey, so much that we’ve created honey-themed gifts. They include our Honey Spoon Gift Set, with spoons that dissolve right in your cup, and our Tea and Honey Basket (pictured below) which pairs our vanilla teas with a honey pot, honey spoons and a jar of honey. They truly are “the bee’s knees.”

Bigelow Tea Shares A Special Garden Gift!


Gardens have a way of making the heart sing. Whether found in your own backyard or verdant landscapes in distant places, the alchemy that occurs with seeds, soil and the natural elements is something to behold! Here at Bigelow Tea, gorgeous spring blooms and plants remind us why we appreciate the earth and its many gifts, and why we make land preservation a major part of our sustainabili-TEA efforts. So we are excited to highlight the American Classic Tea Sampler, a lovely gift item from our very favorite garden: The Charleston Tea Plantation!


When you give someone one of these samplers, you are giving more than just tea. Along with three packets of each of our six delicious American Classic Tea flavors, the recipient will also get a little bit of Americana. You see, American Classic Tea is grown right here at the largest working tea garden in the United States. Since 2006, more than 200,000 visitors have toured our 127-acre tea garden on South Carolina’s Wadmalaw Island. People are drawn, year after year, by the tranquil setting and the opportunity to see the lush camellia sinensis tea plants that thrive in the island climate.

It’s hard to believe how close the U.S. came to losing this American treasure to new development. David C. Bigelow, son of founder Ruth C. Bigelow, tells the remarkable story of how the Bigelow family was inspired to purchase the tea garden at auction in 2003 to preserve it for future generations. One of the benefits of the purchase was that production of American Classic Tea resumed after a long hiatus, thrilling tea lovers who remembered the tea’s unique flavor and longed to taste it again. Now you can try this homegrown garden gift, too … and share it with others by giving an American Classic Tea Sampler!
