A family-owned and operated company, Bigelow Tea has been dedicated to providing customers with truly fine quality teas. Over the past 70 years—and three generations—the Bigelow family has shared many special memories, tea tastings, and afternoon teas together, and loves to see when other families do the same.

On Mother’s Day, actor, producer, environmentalist and fan favorite, Leonardo DiCapriowas spotted taking his mother, Irmelin, out for afternoon tea in New York City. A class act like Leo deserves a mug of a classic tea, like Bigelow Tea “Constant Comment®.” Bigelow Tea enthusiast Helen B. knows: “Another favourite #tea is Bigelow’s Constant Comment…tastes much like chai, strong clove aroma. #Teatime.”

With all they’ve done and still do for us, any day is a good day to treat Mom to something special. And what could be more special than an afternoon shared over a good cup of Bigelow Tea?

Ask any Southerner about tea and they’ll likely tell you to put it over ice. Well, the Bigelow Tea family won’t argue with that! Bigelow Tea’s freshly-brewed iced teas have simple ingredients that make them family-friendly and a perfect choice for today’s healthy lifestyles. Easily made by the pitcher or by the glass on hot summer days — or all year ‘round— they are a flavorful, low-calorie, low-cost beverage option. Try Bigelow’s Iced Green Tea with Pomegranate!

One Southern belle who loves her iced tea is actress, producer and all-American sweetheart Reese Witherspoon. Reese has been keeping busy: She’s launched a new lifestyle brand called Draper James; released a new movie, Hot Pursuit; hosted Saturday Night Live; and was nominated for a 2015 Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for the critically-acclaimed film Wild. And according to her editorial profile on Draper James, Reese does it all with a glass of sweet tea in her hand (it’s her favorite)! How about Bigelow Tea’s Perfect Peach Herbal Iced Tea or Green Tea with Pomegranate Iced Tea? Bright, refreshing and an instant classic, just like Reese!

Twitter user @ArunaGee summed it up perfectly when she said, “A salute to iced tea season! Bigelow green and pomegranate iced tea.” Mmmm… Take a long sip and listen to the ice clink. Cheers!

At Bigelow Tea, it’s music to our ears when we hear about singers who drink tea before a performance. Bigelow Tea imagines vocalists enjoying a mug of Cozy Chamomile® Herbal Tea to soothe the voice and calm the nerves backstage!  We found out that nine-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and musician John Legend is known to sip hot chamomile before a big show. And if he loves the taste of chamomile, maybe he would enjoy Novus Citrus Chamomile Herbal Tea at home too—perhaps over conversation with his newlywed wife, actress and model Chrissy Teigen.

With its mellow, delicate and slightly floral notes, Cozy Chamomile offers understated flavor along with the calming quality of chamomile flowers coupled with a hint of lemongrass in Novus Citrus Chamomile which is legendary.  With the busy life that John leads, he certainly deserves a bit of relaxation between shows on his #AllOfMeTour. And, hey, it looks like @THE_Umrani has a pretty peaceful view to enjoy a cup of tea while listening to John Legend’s music! Bliss!

Bigelow Tea loves a good tea party—it’s a delightful way to celebrate most any occasion— even movie premieres! Recently, the cast of Cinderella joined guests at a tea party before the New York City premiere of the new film, based on the timeless classic fairytale. And, of course, the enchanting princess herself, portrayed by Downton Abbey’s Lily James, was in attendance.

Perhaps Lily enjoys a cup of robust Bigelow Earl Grey or rich “Constant Comment”® while hosting tea parties as Cinderella. Or maybe the Britain-born starlet prefers drinking classic English Teatime while traipsing around the Downton Abbey set. No matter which blend you prefer, the ambiance of Downton is enough to put anyone in the mood for a tea party. Avid watcher @carolinespruill shared, “Thanks #downtonabbey now I can’t get enough #tea #bigelow #missinglondon.”

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!

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.

Bigelow Tea Supports ‘Cups Of Care’ Tea Parties For Breast Cancer Awareness

bigelow tea health

Meet the awesome girls and their moms who have teamed up to create the Cups of Care Program with the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center in Bridgeport, Connecticut. These creative mother-daughter duos host in-home springtime tea parties to raise money for breast cancer treatment and build awareness about breast health. Bigelow Tea is incredibly proud to support this great cause by providing tea for the parties and encouraging others to join the effort!

If you know the story of “Constant Comment,”® you also know that the company began 70 years ago with one woman’s initiative and passion for tea. So it’s inspiring to see what these girls and their mothers are doing to make the world a better place—and to know that Bigelow Tea is a part of it. And while Bigelow Tea supports many charitable causes, there is a special connection to Cups of Care because founder Ruth Campbell Bigelow battled breast cancer.

Cups of Care began last year as a fun way to not only raise money for women struggling to pay for treatment, but also to educate teens about breast health, inspire overall wellness from an early age, and empower young women with the knowledge that they can make a difference in the community and lives of others.  Several mother-daughter teams came together to host eight tea parties and raised nearly $11,000. Wow!

“At Bigelow, supporting good work like this being done by these special young ladies makes each of us feel so fortunate” says Cindi Bigelow, third-generation President & CEO of Bigelow Tea. “They are truly making a difference and we could not be more proud to help, if even in just a small way. Brava young ladies … brava!”

For spring 2015, two parties have already taken place and another is scheduled for April 12th. The program is looking for volunteers to host their own in-home parties from now through May. To find out how you can host a Cups of Care Tea Party, contact Mari-Jo Gordon at the Norma Pfriem Breast Care Center, 203-255-5546.

You too can help make a difference “one cup of tea at a time!”

 

Bigelow Tea is Smitten With Jamie Dornan’s Preference for Peppermint

While former model Jamie Dornan is recognized for his role as Christian Grey in the newly-released Fifty Shades of GreyBigelow Tea especially loves that he favors tea. When it comes to sipping tea, he revealed on Twitter that he’s an avid drinker throughout the day—and wouldn’t it be appropriate if he enjoyed a mug of Earl Grey?

When Jamie’s not acting or drinking tea, he’s falling in love with fatherhood as a new dad to daughter, Dulcie. “Fatherhood is incredible,” he shared in a recent interview with Elle UK while sipping on peppermint tea. We agree wholeheartedly, Jamie. As a family-owned and operated company, Bigelow Tea has been sharing memories together for 70 years.

With his smoldering looks and Irish charm, Jamie has become the talk of Tinseltown and is quickly rising to fame. We hope he keeps a stash of Bigelow Tea Peppermint Herbal Tea on hand for those busy days of filming and interviews. @affiliatedbeauty can attest that our peppermint blend can help calm any frazzled nerves!

So tell us: Which Bigelow Tea favorite is your go-to whenever you need to steep, sip and relax?
