This Scotties Cookie Tin filled with pure butter shortbread cookies is “begging” to be paired with a warm cup of Bigelow Tea like the amazing one-of-a-kind Earl Grey Green Tea. The nibbles in this 7.8 oz. Walkers tin featuring black and white Scottie dogs are baked in the secluded village of Aberlour, Speyside in the Scottish Highlands. The cookie is a traditional recipe handed down through generations—a family business much like Bigelow Tea, built on quality ingredientsgreat taste, and a whole lotta love.  And who doesn’t love cookies and tea? @zachyer tweeted this demand recently: “Someone make me some tea and cookies and bring it to my couch.” LOL. If only everyone could be so fortunate!

Happy holidays all!

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!
