Want To Spoil Your College Student? Send Tea, Please.

The fall semester has started, midterms are finished, and finals will be approaching soon. And you know what’s synonymous with college finals? Care packages. Still not sure what to send? Here’s a little hint: boxes of Bigelow Tea.

Consider this: research suggests that millennials seem to pay greater attention to leading a healthy lifestyle than other generations – nearly half (47%) of the 18-34 age-group surveyed had changed their eating habits towards a healthier diet. Plus, tea is now considered trendy as 42 percent of Americans under age 30 prefer to drink tea and 27 percent drink tea exclusively. Yep. You read that right. Tea = cool (even when it’s hot). In fact, if you’ve got a University of Connecticut student, they’ll see Bigelow teas in the cafes around campus this year!

So, yeah. Show your college student that you’re thinking of them. We suggest a selection of Bigelow Benefits tea. Why? Well, first, they’re awesome. Second, they’re totally delicious. Third, each tea is masterfully blended with the goodness (dare we say, benefits?) of wellness ingredients, which tackle those moments in life that require a breather… You know, like finals.

Want to build a fab care package? Here are a few other items to consider sending: stationary or swag from home to remind them of their favorite places, a few yummy snacks (homemade Vanilla Drop cookies for the win), pictures of the fam (fur-babies, included), cash or gift cards (dinner’s on the ‘rents), household items (laundry detergent pods, shampoo/conditioner always help), and maybe a few fun magazines (for those much needed breaks between studying).

Be a warm, invigorating (and delicious) ray of light in an otherwise hectic finals schedule. With a care package headlined by Bigelow Benefits tea, your student will be focused on their course content and thinking of you as they relax with a cup of their favorite tea. And with any luck, they can boast to you about their awesome grades as you gather together and #TeaProudly on break!

How To Hygge For The Weekend With Bigelow Tea

Adapted blog and picture by Andrea of Salty Canary

Have you heard of “hygge?” It’s pronounced “HUE-ga” and is the current Danish trend here in the United States of being cozy, slowing down, and having a sense of well-being. It’s been a super popular fad, and is a nice reminder to slow down and settle into “weekend mode.” So, stock up on your favorite Bigelow Tea flavors and learn of art of hygge – you may even want to try it this weekend!

We don’t know about you, but a weekend spent slowing down, being cozy, and appreciating the fall season is just what everyone needs right now! We love the fall and winter months of September through December, but when you add the holidays to everyday life, it can become overwhelming and before you know it January is here! We think cozying up on the couch with cozy socks, blankets, and pillows, a good book and some stationery to write some snail mail, and a cup of tea and pumpkin bread is the perfect weekend of hygge along with some mulling spices on the stove to make the house smell like fall!

The first step to Hygge-ing (is that a word?) for the weekend is to make NO plans! None! So it’s actually a plan for no plans! Block off a weekend on the calendar. No apple picking, no pumpkin patches, no corn mazes, no haunted mansions, no movies, or dinners with friends! It’s like a staycation at home. It’s an excuse to spend the weekend in bed or on the couch, and you don’t even have to have the excuse of the flu!

Next, prep your hygge gear – cozy socks, legwarmers, pajamas, or sweaters, along with cozy blankets and plush pillows. Maybe even a fire in the fireplace or scented candles!

Next, prep your snack! Tea and fresh baked pumpkin bread is the perfect choice! We suggest picking up a box of Bigelow’s Orange & Spice Tea because oranges remind us of fall and it pairs so nicely with this fresh baked pumpkin bread. Drinking tea is warm and cozy; tea has the power to soothe souls and connect people!

Then choose your activity. Try to unplug, if you can. No Netflix, Hulu, or TV binging. No internet surfing. Instead, gather a few inspirational books, magazines, and some stationery, and reconnect with the old-fashioned art of snail mail.

And last, but not least, make your house smell cozy with some mulling spices on the stove. Here’s one of our favorite recipes by Salty Canary:

Ingredients:

  • 2 oranges, sliced
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 star anise, whole
  • 2 Tb whole cloves
  • 2 Tb all spice
  • 4 bay leaves

Instructions:
Combine all the ingredients in a large stock pot, fill the pot half way or two-thirds full of water and allow to come to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. NOTE: NEVER leave pot unattended. Check it periodically in case it needs more water.

So, there you have it… the perfect way to hygge out this weekend. Tag #TeaProudly on social media and show us how it went for you! Remember – just relax, because you deserve it!

5 Ways You Can Practice Gratitude At Home, Tea In Hand

(Blog and Picture by Carmen Sognonvi of Top Flight Family!)

This time of year always inspires us to be a bit reflective, maybe even more so than the New Year does. It’s the perfect time to make changes in our life – the landscape is literally changing, so why shouldn’t we? The fall leaves and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday remind us to think about all we have to be grateful for. And that’s a great time to instill gratitude in the children in our lives. If you feel the same way, try one (or all) of these 5 ways families can practice thankfulness at home. Brew up a pot of Bigelow Tea and get started!

  1. Practice what you preach. Before we suggest anything, know that your kids are watching you and taking notes! If you force them to eat their vegetables and never eat anything green yourself, you’ll be called out. The same goes for any activities you want your children to partake in. Sometimes, we have to force ourselves to take the time we need to recharge. Kids look up to you, so be a good role model.
  2. Keep a gratitude journal. Whether you do this one solo or as a group, the simplest way to count your blessings is to put them down on paper. Choose a beautiful notebook and a fancy pen, so you’ll be encouraged to write daily. Or sit around the kitchen table and discuss what you’ll write. (Sometimes kids need a reminder of all the little things they encountered in a single day.) Then jot it all down. Brew up a cup of tea and take some time to reflect. There’s something so soothing about sipping some warm tea as we sit down to share our thoughts.
  3. Meditate. It’s hard for kids to sit still. Scratch that. It’s hard for all of us to sit still these days! Show your family members how to take brief periods of time each day to sit in silence, clear their minds, and focus on their breath. Because our minds tend to reel, give your children an intention of thankfulness to focus on while they’re sitting. They can either say the word over and over or they can visualize all of the things and people they are grateful for. You can start with a minute a day and work up from there.
  4. Say thank you more often (and mean it). Do you thank every stranger that holds the door, hands you something, or helps you in some way? Make it a point to say the words thank you more often. Make it a part of your normal lexicon and encourage your kids to do the same. This simple, verbal expression is a good reminder for us all.
  5. Send thank you cards. This is not only a great habit to model for your children, but also a small gesture that really means a lot to the recipient. Hand-written thank you cards for any and all occasions are vastly underrated. When possible, throw in a $5 coffee shop gift card or a drawing your children made of the interaction to take it a step further.

This is Why Bigelow Caramel Teas are Perfect for Fall

As the leaves start changing and fall gets into full swing, Bigelow Tea lovers everywhere look forward to sipping on delectable, decadent Bigelow caramel teas. The main ingredients in caramel are surprisingly simple: milk, sugar and butter. But when does caramel become caramel? The process of caramelization consists of heating sugar slowly to around 170 °C (340 °F). As the sugar heats, the molecules break down and re-form into compounds that create a characteristic rich caramel color and flavor. (wow, the science of food is amazing!)

A variety of desserts and confections are made with caramel, and all of Bigelow Tea’s scrumptious seasonal caramel tea blends feature real pieces of caramel. (yum!) An all-natural blend of hand-picked black tea and caramel with just a hint of salt, the sweet and salty flavor of Salted Caramel tea is a perfect after-dinner (or anytime!) treat. Velvety smooth Vanilla Caramel tea features robust black tea blended with rich caramel and creamy, oh-so-luscious vanilla. Add a little milk and sweetener, and you’ve got a decadent delight! (yum!)

Tasty caramel and exotic chai spices are carefully mixed with mountain-grown hand-picked black tea to create heavenly Caramel Chai  Black Tea. One sip and you’ll see why caramel and chai are a perfect union of rich spices and buttery caramel.

And our newest treat, Bigelow Caramel Apple Tea is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without getting sticky fingers! This tasty tea is the embodiment of fall flavors–rich caramel and sweet-tart apples pair perfectly with bold black tea to create a party of caramel apple flavors!

@mrspandalee writes on Instagram: “Drinking my new Bigelow Caramel Apple tea in my new #HalloweenCat cup my amazing husband got me!” You go, mrspandalee…..after all, October 31st is National Caramel Apple Day! (yay!)

C’mon, who doesn’t love the rich, creamy taste of caramel? (right?!) Give Bigelow Tea’s yummy caramel tea blends a try, and tag #TeaProudly to share your favorites!

Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Walnuts

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups hot water
  • Bigelow® Pumpkin Spice Tea Bags
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil, plus more for brushing
  • ½ cup walnuts, roughly chopped (optional)
  • Electric waffle maker (an 8 inch round waffle maker was used for this recipe)

Instructions

Sprinkle with cinnamon and chopped walnuts for additional flavor. Steep tea bags in hot water for 3-5 minutes. Remove bags, being sure to squeeze thoroughly. Set tea aside to cool. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add cooled tea, beaten eggs, and oil. Stir to combine. Gently fold in the walnuts (if desired). Preheat the waffle maker. When hot, lightly brush the surfaces with oil, to prevent sticking. Place about ⅔ cup of batter onto the hot waffle maker. Close top and cook for approximately 2 minutes (most waffle makers have an indicator light which will let you know when the waffle is ready), or until waffle is cooked through and surfaces are crisp. Remove to a platter. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.

Banana Pancakes with Salted Caramel Syrup

Salted Caramel Syrup with Bigelow Tea

  • 1⅓ cups Bigelow Salted Caramel Tea (already steeped)
  • 7 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbs Corn starch
  • 1 Tbs water

Banana Pancakes

  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed (about a cup)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 TBS butter, melted
  • Banana slices to garnish

Instructions

In a medium sized bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In separate bowl, whisk milk, tea, mashed banana, egg, and melted butter together until smooth. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients and using a spatula, mix untill just combined. Let batter sit while preparing syrup.

Syrup

Steep a mug of salted caramel tea, remove tea bag and put 1 and ⅓ cup in a heavy pot. Add 7 ounces of sweetened condensed milk and a tsp salt. Stir well. Turn on to medium heat, and stir to combine. In a separate bowl mix together corn starch and water. Add mixture to syrup mix, and stir over heat until it thickens. Remove from heat.

Cooking pancakes

Heat griddle and spray with no stick spray, or use a cast iron skillet with cooking spray heated over medium heat. Spoon batter in, creating 4-5 inch pancakes. Once bubbles begin to form carefully flip pancakes and continue to cook on other side until lightly brown.  Adjust heat if necessary.

Notes

Syrup can be stored in fridge in airtight container for up to two weeks.
* For a quick version use 1½ cup “Just add water” buttermilk pancake mix, ¾ cup Bigelow Salted Caramel Tea, and 2 bananas (mashed) to make pancakes, and top with syrup made according to directions.

Bigelow Tea’s First Social Craze: “Constant Comment” Tea

Isn’t it awesome to see a post or a photo from a year or two or five ago? It puts all the craziness of life in perspective, right? Well, let’s rewind over 70 years. We’re going all the way back to 1945 in the Big Apple – c’mon! Let’s take a stroll down a tree-lined block. Here we are. That brownstone right there. Imagine it with a sepia filter if you like. That’s where it all started: Bigelow Tea, America’s classic, family-owned tea blender. It all started with a kitchen and an enterprising woman who never gave up on her amazing vision.

Inspired by an Early Colonial recipe, founder Ruth Campbell Bigelow disappeared into her kitchen to create a better cup of tea. After weeks of trial and error, blending black tea with orange rind and sweet spices, she emerged with the first cup of specialty tea, which would become known as “Constant Comment®”. It got its name from the “constant comments” of her friends. How cool is it that today Bigelow Tea’s friends and fans are still “commenting” about Bigelow Teas all over the web?

Back at the beginning, Ruth couldn’t simply tweet about her teas (no social media then, obviously…). So, when it came time to market her product, one shopkeeper told Ruth that the aroma of “Constant Comment” was a big selling point. She promptly set up a jar of “Constant Comment” labeled with the directions: “open and whiff.” It was an instant teaser of what’s to come – like a GIF for your nose! Shops across the country placed this whiffing jar by their cash registers and the sales began to grow!

The rest, as they say, is history. And though Ruth never saw the power of the worldwide web, she’d be thrilled to know that “Constant Comment” is still generating buzz! In fact, you can even join our Facebook group dedicated to loving “Constant Comment” – check it out!

Plus, “Constant Comment” even has its own admins-only rules (the tea, not the Facebook Group). To this day, it is made following a secret recipe that only Bigelow Tea Co-Chairmen Eunice and David Bigelow know and blend. It has stood the test of time and continues to fill cups, kitchens and hearts.

And while we can’t share the recipe, you can still like, love and favorite the tea in your cup each day. So drink up, #TeaProudly, and think about how far this tea has come in 70 years. Not bad when “Internet famous” usually only lasts about 70 seconds!

Why Bigelow Tea Takes Pride In Working Women Everywhere


Ambitious. Confident. Passionate. Fierce. Fearless. Brilliant. Trailblazing. Inspiring. These are just a few words to describe female entrepreneurs and businesswomen. So, consider this a shout-out to women in the workforce – especially during National Business Women’s Week®. If anyone knows what it’s like to overcome barriers as a woman in business, it’s Bigelow Tea founder Ruth Campbell Bigelow and her granddaughter, Cindi Bigelow.

Let’s start at the beginning. In 1945, inspired by an Early Colonial recipe, Ruth disappeared into her New York brownstone kitchen to create a better cup of tea. After weeks of trial and error, blending black tea with orange rind and sweet spices, she emerged with the first cup of specialty tea, which would become known as “Constant Comment®”. And Bigelow Tea was born. The company continues to be 100% owned and managed by the Bigelow family, and is one of the nation’s leading producers of specialty teas, which includes more than 140 varieties of flavoredtraditionalgreenherbaldecaffeinated, and iced teas.

Times have changed, but the role of the woman in business still deserves to be celebrated. Today, Ruth’s granddaughter, Cindi (pictured at the top), is president and CEO of the company. Each day, Cindi brings the spirit of her grandmother into every decision she makes for the company. In a country where only 5 percent of companies have female CEOs, Bigelow Tea has thrived—against all odds—to be not only the #1 specialty tea company in the USA, but a part of the conversation about women entrepreneurs.

Not only is it National Business Women’s Week, it’s Boss’s Day on Oct. 16! Which, incidentally, was created by Patricia Bays Haroski in 1958. She was working as a secretary for State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Illinois, at the time and chose to register it on the 16th, which was her father’s birthday. And whether your boss is a man or woman, it’s a manager’s job to ensure that everyone thrives in the workplace. So really, these events go hand-in-hand.

Speaking of hands, it’s a perfect time to raise the cup of tea in your hand. (Don’t have one? Brew a cup; there’s no time like the present!) Raise a cup to the women in business and the bosses in your workplace. They carry a lot of responsibility and keep your workday running – which is no small feat! Better yet, invite them to sit down with a cup of tea, get their perspective, and #TeaProudly over your business successes!

4 Astounding Facts About Tea


Tea lovers are a passionate and devoted bunch, and Bigelow Tea is happy to indulge our thirst for knowledge when it comes to facts about tea. (“thirst” for knowledge, get it? Get it? You drink tea to quench your thirst, sooo…….).

Check out these four fun facts about tea and do share more of your own amazing knowledge so we can add it the list!!

  1. Almost every tea we enjoy (except for herbal tea) comes from come from the leaf bud and leaves of the Camellia Sinesis plant. So how do we get different varieties from one little plant, you ask?! It’s all about the air–exposure of the tea leaves to air for different amounts of time is what creates greenblack and Oolong teas. (wow!)
  2. You may think that the best way to relax is with a cup of Cozy Chamomile tea, but did you know that non-herbal teas can also have a calming effect sans drowsiness?  Many teas contain an amino acid called L-theanine, which has been shown to promote relaxation which helps to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and irritability.
  3. According to one of America’s top full-time tea taster, William Barclay Hall, tea is one of the only commodities in the world bought and sold based on taste. On average, tea is harvested every 15 days, so the taste is always changing based on everything from the temperature, to the amount of rain, to the time of year.
  4. Not all tea ingredients are created equal. (who knew?!) When it comes to making quality tea, sourcing is very important. Since 1945, Bigelow Tea has sourced handpicked teas from high-elevation gardens where the best teas are grown, and herbs from the world’s finest family farms to create our flavorful blends.

As one of the most popular beverages in the world (second only to water), there’s no denying that tea is a beloved beverage for millions (maybe even billions!) of people. Our ever-expanding community of devoted tea lovers thinks so, and they tag #teaproudly to show their passion and enthusiasm for versatile, tasty and comforting tea. Woo-hoo!

Sweet! Bigelow Tea-Infused Recipes

Did you know the vast range of fragrant, flavorful tea ingredients found in the Bigelow family of teas makes for not only a great drink, but a natural, aromatic and rich addition to sweet and savory recipes? While Asian countries have been using tea in recipes for centuries, the Western world is finally catching on. Tea-infused recipes are all the rage in the culinary world and now even home cooks are trying their hand at incorporating tea flavor sensations into their own recipes.

We recently shared two excellent examples by #TeaProudly community members, Jennifer, the blogger behind ‘Engineer Mommy’ and Natalie of the minimalist cooking blog, ‘Just a Little Bite.’

Natalie developed a recipe for London Fog cupcakes, an ode to her London Fog Latte obsession. The tea tie-in?  Bigelow Earl Gray Tea, mixed into the frosting to add a heady bergamot and black tea note which evokes the latte experience.

Lemon, ginger and a healthy dose of wellness were the inspiration for Jennifer’s perky and potent Lemon Ginger Bars.  The Bigelow Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea fan created the recipe to pair with mugs of the tea itself to battle a cold. The bars feature a lemon-ginger combo traditionally known to sooth all that ails you, including the need for a tasty treat!

Ok, #TeaProudly tribe, the challenge is on!  How can you take your favorite Bigelow Tea flavors and transform them into awesome recipes?  With Bigelow’s traditional and modern new flavor families like fruity (peach, orange), sweet (caramel, chocolate) and savory (pumpkin, cinnamon), Bigelow offers plenty of inspiration for your next culinary creation.
