Bigelow Tea Plans Its Go Green Week Event February 9-13th, 2015!

bigelow tea classic green tea

You can bet that green is one of Bigelow Tea’s favorite colors. From the outstanding family of Green Teas to the Bigelow Tea company’s Energy Conservation efforts, green is the color of the Bigelow family’s culture!  Efforts go beyond the factory doors, from the ethical and conservational practices of suppliers to your own kitchen and Bigelow Tea’s packaging – because the box, strings, tags and tea bags are completely recyclable!

So it’s no surprise that Bigelow Tea is into Go Green Week. Their Green Team has  planned an event that will be geared to refresh and heighten employees awareness of what items should be composted and recycled.  So how will you be “green” this week? Bigelow Tea fan Marcia Del Greco Posted on Facebook that she always composts her tea bags. You can even recycle the foils and tags into decorative art,as seen on Pinterest!

Bigelow Tea’s green conscience and principled environmental business practices are a huge part of the family business—which is marking its 70th year this year!—and is rooted in the company culture.  Bigelow Tea can now make the claim that across all 3 manufacturing facilities they are a Zero Waste to Landfill Company.

Says Cindi Bigelow, third-generation president and CEO: “Do the right thing and good things will follow.” So brew a mug of Bigelow Green Tea and embrace the power of green!

 

Bigelow Tea Celebrates Founder Ruth C. Bigelow’s Birthday!

 

btthurs_Bigelow Tea Wishes Your Family A Happy Thanksgiving!

Ruth C. Bigelow with husband David E. Bigelow Sr.

Sunday, February 8th, is a very special day as Bigelow Tea celebrates the birth of founder Ruth Campbell Bigelow! One hundred and nineteen years ago in Providence, R.I., the indomitable Ruth was born! Later, as an adult, Ruth took a great leap of faith in 1945 to launch Bigelow Tea based on a single tea she created in her kitchen: “Constant Comment®.”  What a legacy to commemorate as the Bigelow family also marks the company’s 70th anniversary this year!

Ruth will be forever remembered as a visionary whose passion for quality, family and American ingenuity continues to fuel the Bigelow Tea mission. How proud she would be to know that the business continues to be family-owned and is now America’s number one specialty tea company with more than 120 varieties blended and packaged right here in the USA!

It took determination, grit and hard work for Ruth and husband David Bigelow Sr. to achieve their version of the American dream. Driven by the belief that the country was ready for a more flavorful tea, and inspired by a Colonial recipe, Ruth spent weeks blending black tea, orange rind and sweet spices to perfect  “Constant Comment®.” It remains one of America’s best-loved teas and still generates lots of conversation, as @sharoncady shared in this heartwarming tweet:  “If friendships had a smell, ours would be #ConstantComment tea!”

Happy birthday to Ruth and her beloved Bigelow Tea … here’s to many more generations as America’s Family Tea Blenders!

Seventy Years Of Bigelow Tea

bigelow tea 70th anniversary constant comment tin

The year 2015 is a special one for the Bigelow Tea family. It marks 70 years since the day Ruth Campbell Bigelow created the very first Bigelow Tea, “Constant Comment”® in her home kitchen. For a family-run company to continue for seven decades is no small accomplishment—and Bigelow Tea has not only remained a constant presence on the tea scene, it has thrived and grown to become America’s number one specialty tea company! It’s a true American-dream come true, and it’s a family story that Bigelow Tea is proud to share and savor—much like a nice pot of freshly brewed tea.

Seventy years ago, back in 1945, life in the United States was a bit different. Abbott and Costello made people laugh, World War II was coming to an end and 10 year-old Elvis Presley made his first public appearance at a talent show. Also back in 1945, when the Bigelow Tea company first started, Ruth Bigelow and the family could only afford a single-color label for her first tea. To help spruce up the package, her son David Jr. and her husband David Sr. would sit together each night, hand-painting the two ladies on the original label.

bigelow tea 70th anniversay

Each morning, they would put the tea into the family station wagon and sell it store by store. 70 years later the Bigelow family still puts this kind of effort and passion into selling their tea.

Today, not only is family-owned Bigelow Tea is the #1 U.S. Leader in specialty tea, but that first tea—“Constant Comment”®—is its flagship brand and a tea that has given tea lovers many, many cherished family moments. On Facebook Shannon Martin shared her memory of having “real tea parties” with her great-grandmother and Bigelow Earl Grey. “She passed when I was eight. I’m still a Bigelow drinker today.”

As the Bigelow family and Bigelow Tea celebrate this 70th anniversary throughout the year 2015, please share your special memories of sipping Bigelow Tea throughout the decades!

 

Bigelow Tea’s Energizing American Breakfast Tea Is Waiting For You

bigelow tea american breakfast

Tea drinkers craving  extra focus—and coffee drinkers looking to add a new caffeinated beverage to their repertoire—need look no further than the shelves of their local retailer. Bigelow Tea is excited to announce that Bigelow American Breakfast Tea, an all-new line of robust black teas naturally formulated with 50% more caffeine than the average cup of tea, is now available at Walmart, Publix, Giant, Wegman’s, Shop Rite, Weis, A&P and Price Chopper.

The full line consists of:

Crafted with premium, all-natural ingredients, Bigelow American Breakfast Tea is made in America, by an American family, for the American consumer. In that same spirit of patriotism, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the American Breakfast Tea line goes to support our U.S. servicemen and women. And please note Operation Gratitude added American Breakfast tea to their wish list on Amazon so please think about making a contribution to our troops.

New Bigelow American Breakfast Teas are specially formulated with natural black tea extract—a concentrated form of brewed black tea—to deliver 60-90mg of caffeine per cup, versus the typical 30-60mg in regular black tea. Despite the significantly higher caffeine content, drinkers won’t experience the “rush and crash” effect typical of coffee.

Cindi Bigelow, third generation president and CEO of the family-owned Bigelow Tea, explains, “The lift you get from the caffeine in tea is different from that of coffee. That’s because tea has the added benefit of Theanine, a naturally occurring component in tea. Studies have shown this unique combination gives tea drinkers a sustained energy boost and, at the same time, a feeling of relaxation and focus similar to what is achieved through meditation. ”
