Bigelow Tea Celebrates Family Stories Month With Cindi and Eunice Bigelow

Sit back, relax, and brew your favorite Bigelow Tea because it’s Family Stories Month. With the weather growing colder and a mug of Salted Caramel Tea to keep you warm, this is the time to learn more about your family. Who knows, maybe Dad has a crazy story you haven’t heard yet!

Here’s a family story from Bigelow Tea employee J. David Silva, Sr., who has turned health and wellness into a family affair. Together, he and his family decided to kick-start their commitment to health. Each person kept track of their workouts in a journal to be discussed as a family on Saturdays, presumably with a cup of Bigelow Tea in hand!

And if you haven’t already heard the legendary “Because Mama Moved the Pony Stable” story about Bigelow family matriarch Ruth Bigelow and her mother’s determination, give it a read now. This is a family story worth sharing!

When celebrating Family Stories Month, doing something fun with a family member is key! In the video clip above, see two members of the Bigelow family having a ball. Third generation President and CEO of Bigelow Tea Cindi Bigelow has the recipe for this delicious Greenie Martini, but it’s her mother Eunice who really shakes it up!

It’s probably safe to assume that many tea fans out there enjoy sharing family stories over a nice mug of Bigelow Tea. Twitter fan @Hayley_Giles enjoys teatime and thinking about happy memories with her Grandma.

Which Bigelow Tea will you be sipping as you relive or create family stories this month?

Bigelow Tea Is Ready for America Recycles Day!

bigelow tea recycles

On America Recycles Day, Bigelow Tea has some great news to share: For their 2014 fiscal year, 1,796,501 pounds of materials in all of their three facilities have been recycled, reused or composted. That’s quite a number!

Recycling is a top priority in Bigelow’s Sustainability program, which is all about the company’s commitment to social responsibility. This program has led to the creation of many innovative ways to encourage reducing or reusing excess materials at all three of Bigelow’s facilities: Louisville, Kentucky; Boise, Idaho, and Fairfield, Connecticut.

At all three manufacturing plants, items ranging from machine shop metal to packaging materials are given a second purpose. And in the Bigelow Tea offices, collection drives gather empty print cartridges, electronics and even videotapes for recycling.

While Bigelow Tea practices the 3 Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle), they also want to know what their fellow tea drinkers are doing. Send a tweet to @BigelowTea and share your thoughts. @larellscardelli tweeted a suggestion to use ceramic not paper plates—great idea!

How ‘Bout Them Apples? Bigelow Tea Celebrates National Apple Month

Bigelow Apple Cider Tea

Everyone knows “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” and that’s because it’s one of the best and tastiest powerfoods around. Apples are packed with fiber and nutrients, and boast a delightfully crisp texture with a sweet yet tart flavor. Bigelow Tea has three delectable apple-tea blends—made with real apple bits—to savor during National Apple Month.  Naturally caffeine-free, Bigelow Tea’s herbal blends are anytime perfect.

Can’t make it to the orchard? Bigelow Tea’s Apple Cider blends crisp and tangy apples and hibiscus with sweet spices—cinnamon, rosehip, orange peel, licorice root and clove—to instantly warm up cool autumn days.

No time for baking? Our Cinnamon Apple herbal tea is practically apple pie in a cup! Warming cinnamon and licorice steep nicely with the subtle tartness and fruity notes of hibiscus and apple. It’s so compelling that @RunBrinksyRun posted on Instagram “Guys, I may have a tea addiction and this #Bigelow Cinnamon Apple smells amazing.” Sounds like she may need an intervention.

A fan of the cran? (Berry that is.)  A more full-bodied option, in a rich crimson color, Bigelow Tea Cranberry Apple herbal tea balances the tartness from cranberries and hibiscus with the sweetness of apples and chamomile for a robust, herbal brew.

Enjoy National Apple Month!

 

Bigelow Tea Adds Flavor Excitement to the Holiday Season

The Bigelow Tea family, renowned for three generations for their tea blending craftsmanship, is delighted to add scrumptious new teas to its ever-popular seasonal tea line that are perfect for holiday enjoyment, and on target with today’s consumer taste trends.

In addition to Pumpkin Spice Tea and Apple Cider Herbal Tea, Bigelow’s Harvest line now includes:

bigelow tea saled caramel

Salted Caramel Tea!

Reflecting the latest confectionary trend of melding a salty note to rich buttery caramel, all-natural Bigelow Salted Caramel Tea captures all the appeal of this popular, full-bodied-caramel flavor combination. To achieve its tantalizing flavor profile, the expert American tea blenders at Bigelow Tea have combined hand-picked black tea with natural caramel and salt flavors. Amazingly, for a beverage so loaded with indulgent flavor, Salted Caramel Tea has zero calories and no sodium for a sublime, guilt-free indulgence.

Adding zest to the Bigelow’s already delicious Holiday line of Eggnogg’n® Tea and Ginger Snappish® Herbal Tea, is this refreshing new offering:

bigelow tea peppermint bark

Peppermint Bark Herbal Tea!

As fans of peppermint bark candy know, peppermint and chocolate make a wonderfully refreshing flavor combination that is truly irresistible! Now, consumers can enjoy this delicious Holiday favorite – a hallmark of season, in a whole new way. Bigelow Peppermint Bark Herbal Tea is an all-natural herbal tea that is decadently rich in chocolaty flavor with a cool, fresh minty finish. Hot and cool at the same time, it makes a perfect treat to warm body and soul on a cool day. Here’s another reason to celebrate. This caffeine-free treat has zero calories.

“We are truly thrilled to offer these richly flavorful teas to the growing world of tea drinkers,” says Cindi Bigelow, 3rd generation president and CEO of the family-owned company. “Everyone who has tried them absolutely loves the comfort and pleasure of these tempting seasonal tea treats. They’re two of the holidays’ favorite flavors. Pure enjoyment – with no calories and no guilt!”

Protective Packaging

True to tradition, both new flavors are packaged in individually wrapped tea bags in Bigelow’s signature foil pouch to protect them from air, moisture and surrounding aromas, to keep the tea as fresh and flavorful as the day it was blended. It’s easy to tuck a few into a pocket or handbag to enjoy the fresh, luscious flavor anywhere, anytime throughout the busy holidays.

Look for Bigelow Harvest and Holiday Teas in free-standing floor shippers at retailers starting in October. They will also be available at bigelowtea.com.

“We invite you to try our new teas” says Cindi Bigelow. “Not only are they a satisfying pleasure that you’ll want to enjoy often, they make wonderful gifts for family, friends, colleagues, teachers – anyone you think deserves a holiday treat. Pop them in a gift bag with a special mug and spread the joy!”
