This Is What Balance Tastes Like…The Bigelow Tea Way

Okay, so when you think of the word balance, what comes to mind? Maybe it’s finding time for you – learning how to balance everything in your life (and within yourself) or attempting to identify more work/life balance. Or, perhaps it’s more literal – “I want to balance my checkbook this weekend!” (said no one ever). Well, whatever the word conjures, guess what – we can do it all with a cup of Bigelow Benefits Balance (Cinnamon and Blackberry Herbal Tea). After all, it’s got Balance in its name!

What’s even better, is that this tea was blended with a certain purpose in mind: while finding that inner balance, its hearty cinnamon and blackberry ingredients are so satisfying, you’ll likely want to skip the addition of sweetener and help balance your sugar intake. And, hey, after the most indulgent holiday season ever, we’re cool with that.

It’s all about ingredients you know and tastes you will love, right?! A beautiful (and balanced!) blend of cinnamon, lemongrass, blackberry, fennel, apples and elderberries, each cup of Bigelow Tea Benefits Balance is *totally* delicious. It’s robust and fruity with the perfect amount of spice.

And check this out: some of these ingredients go back thousands of years. Cinnamon was believed to have been first used as a perfuming agent during the embalming process around 2000 BC in Egypt. There is also evidence from the Iron Age Haraldskær Woman that she consumed blackberries some 2500 years ago, so these berries have been a foodie favorite for a long time!

Give this Bigelow Benefits tea a try and brew a pot for some friends or gift a box to someone who needs it. Any way you #TeaProudly is another way more people get to enjoy the incredible power and delicious flavor of tea!

Some Like It Hot – Hot Bigelow Tea During Hot Tea Month, That Is!

Brrr… it’s cold out there! All the more reason to cozy up inside – light a fire, cuddle up and drink some hot Bigelow Tea! And, hey! Look at that! It’s Hot Tea Month… an even better reason! If you’re wondering how best to celebrate this – ahem, *very* important month – sharing a cup of Bigelow Tea with your favorite people is a great way to start. National Hot Tea Month is a great excuse to sip more tea and enjoy it over good conversation. Or, if you’re not an avid tea drinker (and by avid, we mean many cups, every day), now’s the perfect time to begin a new, delicious habit – daily cups of tea! Annnd, if you needed one more reason to drink mugs and mugs of tea this January (and every other month of the year), we’ll do one better – we’ll give you five!

Five reasons why tea is awesome:

  1. It tastes fabulous. And we promise that every cup of Bigelow Tea you drink will be made with only the finest ingredients.
  2. Tea is the perfect conversation-starter. Ever say to someone, “Let me put the kettle on and let’s talk?” Sharing a cup of tea is a wonderful—and easy—way to get something off your chest, catch up or simply talk about your day.
  3. Tea is warm and cozy—it soothes souls, connects people, is relaxing, invites conversations and makes memories. In life, it doesn’t get much better than that.
  4. Tea is EVERYWHERE. In the U.S. alone, millions of us share a love for tea. Historically, while tea holds a special place in many cultures near and far, today we consider tea drinking a proud American tradition!
  5. Let’s get this party started! No longer the exclusive property of ladies in gloves and big hats, tea parties can be fun and even cool. Are you ready to get your tea party on?

The new year is here and it’s a perfect time to start some new tea-inspired traditions. It’ll warm you up, help calm you down, and a pot of tea is the best way to bring people together. And that’s something we can all use, instead of being focused on our phones and buried in blogs, right? Well, maybe there’s one exception there – you can always #TeaProudly right here! Cheers!

What Would Morning Be Without Tea?

bigelow tea recipesAre you the type for whom getting out of bed just doesn’t happen without a big soothing gulp of tea? Yeah, us too. Bigelow Tea is such a great drink to start your morning with because it can help get you going without all the caffeine of coffee. It’s a cozy, warm, and comforting way to ease into the day- plus it comes in tons of flavors!

March is National Caffeine Awareness Month, and considering that 54 percent of Americans treat themselves to some form of caffeine every day according to Health Research Funding, it’s definitely worth noting how much less caffeine there is in tea when compared to coffee. Here’s how it adds up:

bigelow tea caffeine meter

  • Black tea contains 30-60 mg of caffeine – half (way less!) than coffee.
  • Green tea has even less caffeine, around 25-50 mg.
  • Decaffeinated teas have about 1-8 mg of caffeine.
  • Herbal teas have no caffeine. (Making them perfect for bedtime, or anytime you need to chill out and relax!)
