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. ”

Bigelow Tea’s Tips For An Eco-Friendly Holiday Party

bigelow tea cindi bigelow

Hosting a “green” holiday party can be a fun and relaxed experience if you prepare, organize, and delegate ahead of time. Bigelow Tea has a number of eco-friendly holiday hosting tips and delicious seasonal teas you’ll want to explore before heading to the store.

Use cloth napkins instead of paper.

Cloth is both elegant and good for the environment. Tea towels come in handy for those inevitable spills and guests will appreciate the eco-friendly gesture.

Create a sustainable décor.

Making up-cycled holiday decorations is a fashionable and fun activity to share with friends and kids before—or even during!— the party. Last year, Bigelow Tea’s Christmas tree was decorated with 100% up-cycled ornaments made by employees. Check out more on our sustainability board on Pinterest!

bigelow tea ornamentServe food and drink in “real” dishes and cups, not paper or plastic.

‘Tis the season for hot beverages, and Instagrammers like @collettebates are enjoying #mulledwine with friends. Use teacups and mugs, not Styrofoam. It doesn’t matter if they match—eclectic
mugs are a fun addition to a party. And, if you’re looking for a good recipe, Bigelow tea has a delicious one for Orange & Spice Hot Mulled Wine that pairs well with these holiday cookies made with Eggnogg’n.

 

Surf the web for more eco-friendly holiday party ideas.

Bigelow Tea posted a few of our favorites ideas and tips for green decorating last year, including a no-chemicals suggestion for a holiday-scented house! Explore the internet for more options and share your favorite ideas with us on Facebook!

Happy hosting!

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?
