At Bigelow Tea, we’ve known for decades what the experts at The Food Channel are just now predicting—Tea is (quite literally) a HOT food trend for 2014! And while we’re honored to join the ranks of the Cronut and the craft-craze, we’re firm believers in longevi-tea!
And why not! After all, tea is tasty, stylish, multi-seasonal and multi-cultural (just ask the Chinese, the English, the Moroccans)! Celebrities swear by it. And, it complements just about every cuisine, sweet or savory, hot or iced. In fact, tea is so steeped in our world tapestry, it’s downright quotable!
Sooo… given tea’s anticipated popularity this year (the most popular flavor globally being Earl Grey), we thought it might be fun to visit some other BIG trends for 2014, simply to test our newfound “it”-ness…
**In beauty, the looks range from effortless (think: clean skin) to statement making—from platinum blonde to braids, neon orange lips, nails in geometric patterns and prints (especially black and white), and lids with unexpected pops of color, from blue to green to white. Oh, and gilded. And if you can pull off the lioness eye, props to you!
**In fashion, expect a random amalgamation of luxe sportswear and couture-comfy sandals to art-inspired designs and the return of the crop-top, Bermuda shorts and vests.
** Generally speaking, the consumer shopping experience will be transformed, with customization applied to every possible category; social responsibility becoming increasingly more meaningful—something Bigelow Tea takes very seriously; and the ability to shop straight from our mobile devices going mainstream.
Tea lover Kelsey tweeted that she drinks Bigelow Tea every day, so she’s right on trend! How about you? Aside from drinking tea, which of these other trends tickle your fancy?
