bigelow-tea-turkey_thanksgiving-recipe

Ingredients

Glaze:

Turkey and Gravy:

  • 1 10-15 pound (5-7.5g) turkey (thawed if previously frozen)
  • 1 lemon, cut into four pieces
  • 1 onion, peeled and cut into four pieces
  • 1 cup (250mL) chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons (30mL) cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper to taste

*Variations: Try using Bigelow Orange and Spice Herbal Tea   

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350º. Steep tea bags in 1 cup boiling water for 5 minutes. Squeeze excess liquid out of tea bags and discard. Reserve tea. Meanwhile, prepare a glaze by heating butter, brown sugar and cranberry juice into a saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Add tea and reduce mixture by cooking over medium high heat for 15 minutes. Set aside. To prepare turkey, remove giblets and neck from turkey, rinse inside and out and pat dry. Place a cut lemon and a cut-up onion into the cavity and truss the turkey. Place in an open roasting pan breast side up. Brush skin with glaze. Bake turkey in preheated oven. Keep glaze warm on stove and continue basting with glaze every 20 minutes. Remove turkey from oven and let stand for at least 20 minutes before carving. Discard any unused glaze. To make gravy, dissolve cornstarch in chicken stock. Place roasting pan on burner over medium heat, scraping browned bits. Add stock whisking constantly until thickened; about 1 minute. Strain gravy and serve with turkey. As a nice alternative, use a 9-11 pound oven stuffer roaster chicken in place of the turkey. For best results, tie the chicken with string at the legs and the wings. For the glaze reduce the number of tea bags from 12 to 8.

#TeaProudly With Bigelow Tea

bigelow-tea-tea-proudly-mugs

We totally get why tea is second only to water as the most widely consumed beverage in the world and we especially love that 82% of Americans drink tea—that’s more than 158 million people who count tea as a top beverage choice. And tea is now considered trendy where 42 percent of Americans under age 30 prefer to drink tea where 27 percent drink tea exclusively. Just think, millions of us around the U.S., all ages, men and women, share the love of tea in common. Historically, while tea holds a special place in many cultures near and far, today we consider tea drinking a proud American tradition!

And you know how much we love tea at Bigelow. As a proud third generation family run business, our founder Ruth Campbell Bigelow created our flagship “Constant Comment” tea in 1945 and from that moment on, one tea bag at a time, we have reinvented tea in America by providing tea drinkers with a selection of more than 130 flavors of black, green, oolong, and herbal teas using premium ingredientsand foil pouches for each tea bag so you can sip and savor the highest quality, most delicious cup of tea.

But let’s get real, drinking tea is so much more, right? It’s warm and cozy; it soothes souls, connects people, invites conversation and makes memories. This, we believe, is something to talk about…something to share. As an industry leader, we are taking the very tea movement we inspired in America to the next level. We are building a Tea Proudly community.  #TeaProudly is a welcoming place that keeps all tea lovers informed about what’s brewing and gives rise to expression, both yours and ours together. We, and tea lovers across the country,  want to hear from you about why you #TeaProudly, why you make tea your beverage of choice, when you drink it, who you share your tea moments with, and what special memories have been made over a warm, beautiful cup of tea.

Join us at www.teaproudly.com and tag your special moments using #TeaProudly and let’s share a cup or two together!

Pump Up Your Day With A Mug Of Bigelow Tea For #NationalPomegranateMonth

bigelow-tea-green-tea-mugLove a good twist on a classic? Why not try a tangy spin on a traditional Bigelow Tea favorite: Green Tea with Pomegranate (which also comes in an organic version, steep by Bigelow).  This beautiful cup of tea offers a touch of sweetness and a hint of tartness, and packs a punch with the power of pomegranate which is the perfect way, we think, to celebrate #NationalPomegranateMonth! And hey, why stop there if you are loving this amazing fruit?  Try Pomegranate Black Tea and Pomegranate Pizzazz Herbal Tea too!

So, what is a pomegranate, anyway? A pomegranate is a round fruit with a thick, reddish skin that—when cut open—reveals ruby-red seeds called arils. High in antioxidants, potassium, vitamin C, and a great source of fiber, pomegranates are often used in cooking, juice blends, cocktails and, of course, tea!

bigelow-tea-pomegranate

Pomegranates also have an awesome history as symbols of abundance, prosperity, and fertility for thousands of years so why not combine the legends with a wealth of flavor and health benefits like tea lover @767Beauty who proudly shared that Bigelow’s Green Tea with Pomegranate tea is, “Such yummy goodness from Bigelow!”

Mmmmmmm, Bigelow Green Tea with Pomegranate, please! #TeaProudly

A Bigelow Tea Tribute To Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen will always be considered a musical legend. He was iconic. He was tremendously influential. He was considered a visionary by so many. And as the world mourns his passing, the Bigelow family wants to give our condolences to his family, friends and many, many fans.

For six decades, Leonard revealed his soul through music and poetry. As Billboard noted, his songs that became radio hits were more likely to have been recorded by other musicians, such as “Suzanne,” by Judy Collins. In fact, it was the success of Judy’s cover of the song that led to his recording career—soon after, he released The Songs of Leonard Cohen, the first of 14 albums. And it was the beautiful lyrics in “Suzanne” that honored our “Constant Comment®” tea by making reference to “tea and oranges.”

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night forever
And you know that she’s half-crazy but that’s why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges that come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her
Then he gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer that you’ve always been her lover

Inspired by his friendship with Suzanne Verdal, the evocative lyrics in “Suzanne” describe the afternoons they would spend together at her apartment by the Montreal harbor: she would serve him “Constant Comment” tea and fruit, and they would walk along the St. Lawrence River and by the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours, where sailors prayed before heading out to sea.

“The song was begun, and the chord pattern was developed, before a woman’s name entered the song,” he told the BBC in 1994. What allegedly began as a song about his hometown of Montreal evolved into a reminiscent and melodic poem of friendship, a story that NPR’s The Salt shared in detail here.

While great songs last forever, we recognize that our time with people, even the greatest and most creative people, is fleeting. We’ll miss you, Leonard. To his fans in the tea community, let’s find some time today to turn on “Suzanne,” make a pot of “Constant Comment,” and reflect on the work of one of the greatest songwriters of time. Tag your reflective moment with #TeaProudly to share with other tea drinkers.

Bigelow Tea Honors Our Troops with a Gift to the USO

bigelow-tea-tea-for-troopsBigelow Tea keeps those who have served our country close to our hearts every day including this Veteran’s Day. Recently Bigelow Tea worked closely with the USO and Stop & Shop in Quincy, Massachusetts on a specially developed Support our Local Troops Program that represented 3% of all Bigelow Tea sold at Stop & Shop stores between June 3 and July 7, 2016 and resulted in a final contribution of  $14,100. The contribution will provide support to the USO and the crucial services it provides to forward-deployed service members, military families, wounded warriors, troops in transition and families of the fallen.

“The USO and their mission, which recognizes the huge sacrifices men and women of our military have made and continue to make, is near and dear to the hearts of everyone at Bigelow Tea. Filled with pride and gratitude for all they do, we love doing all we can, whenever we can, to support them,” says Cindi Bigelow, President & CEO of Bigelow Tea. “We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Stop & Shop on this program and to all the Stop & Shop consumers for their whole-hearted support. Together we accomplish great things.”

Bigelow Tea’s commitment to U.S. military communities continues to grow since it launched its Tea for the Troops Program in 2009 donating 5 million tea bags to date in support of the USO’s ongoing mission to strengthen America’s military by keeping them connected to family, home and country. The “Tea for the Troops” program sends specially designed boxes of the company’s 100% American-grown tea, from the company’s Charleston Tea Plantation, to U.S. military personnel overseas and in the States. The package was created exclusively for service men and women to thank them for their service.

Additionally, Bigelow Tea became an official sponsor of the USO in 2015 and an enthusiastic participant in USO events such as the organization’s 2015 and 2016 Warrior Weeks that took place in Virginia Beach, Virginia in association with USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia Inc. Their invaluable programs bring together physical, therapeutic and recreational organizations that empower wounded, ill and injured troops with a renewed sense of adventure by providing opportunities to participate in activities from adaptive water skiing and kayaking, to deep sea fishing, horseback riding, surfing, racquetball and tennis.

We encourage you to take a moment this Veteran’s Day to find your own way to honor and support all the men, women, and families who have given so much to our country.

Bigelow Has Breakfast In the (Tea!) Bag

bigelow-tea-mug-of-teaIf you’re not really the early-rising, breakfast-eating type, we at Bigelow Tea are here to convince you otherwise. Being proud tea drinkers makes us all about choosing healthy choices. And that includes grabbing an eye-opening morning meal that will make you want to be rid of the snooze button once and for all.

Chowing down on breakfast offers your body all sorts of amazing benefits. Did you know that people who eat breakfast generally weigh less? The theory is that eating breakfast makes you crave healthier food choices throughout the day since you aren’t starving come lunchtime. One study from the Harvard School of Public Health even suggests that not eating breakfast can lead to weight gain, diabetes, as well as high cholesterol and blood pressure. Not convinced yet that breakfast is the best? How about if we told you that breakfast also fuels your brain — kind of important if you’re heading to the office or school!

So nibble something yummy with that steaming mug of tea and start feeling amazing every morning.

We are crazy for these sweet yet filling, recipes. They’re so good, yet so simple to whip up…. important when you’re half asleep! We know you love your tea, but we promise you’ll love it even more when it accompanies one of these mouthwatering breakfasts!  Happy breakfast eating tea lovers!

Who Doesn’t Love A Celeb Filled Tea Party? BAFTA LA Does It Right!

Celebs came out in full force a few months ago to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea held by BAFTA Los Angeles (The British Academy of Film and Television Arts) the day before the Emmys. The annual event took place at the Boxwood cafe inside of the London Hotel in West Hollywood, and gave Brits and non-Brits alike a chance to relax before the big awards night – plus munch on teatime goodies! BAFTA Los Angeles is an organization that promotes British talent and bridges the relationship between Hollywood and the U.K. film industry, and the event included plenty of stars from the other side of the pond. Celebs such as Emilia Clarke and Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones, and Laura Carmichael and Julian Fellowes (star and creator of Downton Abbey respectively) enjoyed a spread that included the ever classic scones with strawberry preserves and clotted cream, as well as a variety of tea sandwiches such as roast beef with horseradish sauce, cucumber, and egg salad and watercress. Of course, there was plenty of tea sipping, with English Breakfast, Earl Gray, and Peppermint being some of the varieties on pour. For celebs looking for a little bit more of a kick, a variety of cocktails also shared the menu. And what does a star wear to a tea party? A tea length dress of course! Clarke and Carmichael showed off their English rose radiance by wearing delicate tea length dresses that were right in tune with the theme.

If you’re looking to replicate the BAFTA experience at your own home, unfortunately we can’t promise that the cast of Game of Thrones will show up. Luckily, there are plenty of delicious recipes and flavorful teas to create a memorable event for your own friends and family!

Bigelow Likes A Green Monster’s Taste in Tea!

bigelow-tea-halloween

It’s Halloween and you know what that means — trick or treat yourself to a warm cup of tea! Speaking of ghouls and monsters and all things spooky, actor Boris Karloff, who famously played Frankenstein’s monster as pictured, was known to be a tea enthusiast. Whether it was between takes on a movie set or sitting quietly at home, a cup of tea was never far out of his reach. Let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want a cup between all the takes and lines?! Perhaps Green Tea (or in this case maybe our Green Tea with Lemon) helped him get into his green-tinged character?bigelow-tea-green-tea-with-lemon

Which Bigelow Tea flavor do you sip during a long day? (And, yes, a Greenie Mar-TEA-ni can count today… after all, it’s, technically, a holiday!)
