Last year, tea lover and Instagramer rachaelnaidu spent Diwali sipping tea with the whole family! Consider Bigelow English Teatime, which is grown in the mountains of Sri Lanka and is famous for its rich full-bodied yet smooth flavor.

A Video Tribute To Family And Bigelow Tea!

There’s nothing like a snow day and tea to create a little extra family time, as Kyle Elliott explains in this nostalgic video. He remembers shoveling snow, then coming back into a warm house and sharing a mug of tea with his dad! As family tea blenders for nearly 70 years, Bigelow Tea agrees that tea and togetherness go hand in hand! 

Judging by all the Facebook chatter about this crazy winter, Kyle’s not alone in finding comfort in a cup of tea. After one recent storm (who can keep track?!),Christine said she was “having lots of tea parties with the girls.” Love that!
 

Cindi Bigelow Shares Why Bigelow Teas Always Make The Grade!

WFSB 3 Connecticut
Brew a mug of your favorite Bigelow Tea blend and hit “play” on this video to join Bigelow Tea on a virtual tour of the family-owned business, which was started by Ruth Campbell Bigelow in 1945 with “Constant Comment®” tea (not chai, as mistakenly noted in the clip).

WFSB-TV in Connecticut visited the company’s Fairfield, CT headquarters and spoke with Ruth’s granddaughter Cindi Bigelow, third-generation president and CEO of Bigelow Tea. The news piece covers a range of topics including these interesting facts:

  • After water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world.
  • Bigelow Tea sells approximately 1.6 billion tea bags a year in 128+ varieties. Wow!
  • Tea leaves used in Bigelow Tea are grown in ethical tea gardens in such places as China, India, Sri Lanka and our Bigelow’s own Charleston Tea Plantation in South Carolina, then shipped to Bigelow Tea, where they are “tested, blended and tested again.”
  • Personnel in the Fairfield, CT headquarters analytical lab taste between 25,000 and 30,000 cups of tea and ingredients per year to ensure that the flavor, color and aroma are up to Bigelow Tea’s high standards (and yours!).
  • Tea leaves are mixed into a machine before being placed in tea bags and packaged in boxes for each variety.
  • Quality is paramount, which is why every five minutes, a tea bag is pulled from the machine and inspected.
  • And those beautiful new boxes? They’re designed by an artist in Bridgeport, CT!

See for yourself how the dedicated Bigelow Tea team ensures that every mug of your Bigelow Tea is perfectly pure and flavorful!
