Bigelow Tea Cheers Sheryl Crow And Her Upcoming Performance  At The First Flush Festival

bigelow tea first flush sheryl crow

Bigelow Tea and music make a great combination … and if you throw Grammy-winner Sheryl Crow into the mix, well that’s definitely something to sing about!

With hits like “If It Makes You Happy” and “Every Day is A Winding Road,” Sheryl Crow is one of America’s best-loved performers. As a proud American company, Bigelow Tea appreciates this home-grown artist and hopes she sips a little American Classic tea (made from our very own Charleston Tea Garden) before she hits the stage!

If you also adore Sheryl Crow, mark your calendar for May 24! That’s the date she will headline the ninth annual First Flush Festeaval at The Charleston Tea Plantation. This family-friendly festival celebrates the first harvest of the season and includes live music, local artisan vendors, kids activities, food trucks and of course, plenty of American Classic Tea! Crow will be joined by bands like Stop Light ObservationsDangermuffin, and other special guests. Facebook fan Rosanna Stefano saw Crow perform in 2007 and said “it was the best concert I’ve ever attended… She is fantastic!”

In addition to being a nine-time Grammy award-winning artist, Crow is also the mother of two young boys. Good Housekeeping caught up with Sheryl last summer and she revealed when she’s on tour the boys travel with her as much as their school schedule allows. Who knows, maybe Wyatt and Levi will be at the First Flush Festival to watch their mom perform and to meet Waddy the Frog!

Either way, Sheryl Crow’s love of music is contagious. What’s your favorite Sheryl Crow song to listen to while you sip Bigelow Tea?

Charleston Tea Plantation First Flush 2015

bgelow tea charleston tea plantation first flush

Spring is here at Bigelow Tea and a new harvest season is about to begin at the Charleston Tea Plantation! The first harvest of the year produces a special tea called the “First Flush.” This tea was traditionally reserved for royalty and usually is picked in late April or early May. It creates a unique tasting tea that is only available once a season! Like all tea, First Flush tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. After being dormant all winter, the Camellia Sinensis plants experience escalated growth of new leaves creating this distinct tea. Devoted tea drinkers describe a cup of First Flush tea as the most delicious, pure, and fresh cup of tea available with a smooth and mellow flavor.

In celebration for the new harvest season, each year the Charleston Tea Plantation hosts the First Flush FesTEAval. This year’s 9th Annual First Flush FesTEAval will include live music from nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow! This family friendly festival also includes local artisan vendors, food trucks, kids activities, and of course, plenty of tea! The First Flush FesTEAval will take place onSunday, May 24, 2015 beginning at noon. Tickets are currently available online through Ticketfly and in person at the plantation. This is an event you won’t want to miss!

The Charleston Tea Plantation is open seven days a week, with the exception for a few holidays and is the perfect spot for a family day trip. To learn more about First Flush tea, and all tea, enjoy a trolley ride through the fields, Factory Tour, and a glass of chilled iced tea in the Plantation Shop. And don’t forget to snap a picture with Waddy the Frog!

Bigelow Tea Reports On Penn State Research That Says Green Tea May Keep Your Mouth Safe From Certain Forms Of Cancer

bigelow tea green tea

Yes, Bigelow Tea in a big mug can warm your hands and it can bring delicious aromas to your nose … but it’s the mouth that really gets to enjoy Bigelow Tea. The mouth is the gateway to Bigelow Tea’s rich flavors and that soothing sensation of sipping and swallowing tea. Now there’s news that Green Tea may actually keep your mouth safe from some forms of cancer! Read on.

A new Pennsylvania State University study published in Molecular Nutrition and Food stated that green tea might kill oral cancer cells, and boost healthy ones. In the study the authors found that a compound in green tea triggers a process in the cancerous cells’ mitochondria that leads to early cell death. A previous study in 2002 found that green tea could induce cancer cell death and suggested “regular consumption of green tea could be beneficial in the prevention of oral cancer.”

This is exciting news! So, in addition to tasting good, keeping you warm and making special memories, Bigelow Green Tea might keep your mouth healthy. Another wonderful reason to enjoy Bigelow Tea during its milestone 70th year@DarlenyGomezR tweeted that she might be obsessed with Bigelow’s green tea … are you?
