Bigelow Tea’s Three Things to Love About Jessica Chastain

Bigelow Tea Jessica Chastain

Grab a cup of your favorite Bigelow Tea and get ready to learn more about the Oscar-nominated actress, Jessica Chastain. While she keeps her personal life to herself (understandably), she has been spotted sipping tea and dishing about her rise to fame and an upcoming project.

Here’s the scoop:

Jessica Chastain is a Green Tea drinker.

When the actress sat down in New York City for an interview with The Telegraph, she had a cup of Green Tea in hand as she answered questions about her life, fame, and upcoming projects.

The actress worked hard to get to where she is today.

Before Chastain’s rise to fame, she had more than a decade of acting experience under her belt. She did theater work in San Francisco and starred in a number of independent films. Then two of her films made it to the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and she was nominated for an Oscar for her role in The Help. Since then, her career and personal life have been cause for constant comment.

Interstellar is her next big film.

Jessica’s latest role in Interstellar might be her biggest role to date. Pour a mug of American Breakfast Tea before you see it! Why? First, because the movie is over 3 hours long and with 50% more caffeine, it could help you stay alert and second, theanine, a naturally occurring compound unique to tea combines with caffeine to give you a sustained energy boost along with a feeling of relaxation and focus that only tea can provide. Moviegoer and tea fan @Sheona tweeted about going to “the filling station for tea” before seeing Interstellar. Good idea!

Bigelow Tea Applauds Actor Benedict Cumberbatch’s Precise Love Of Tea!

Bigelow Tea celebrity

You might say that British actor Benedict Cumberbatch has a pedigree for drinking tea. Born and raised in London to actor parents, he is the grandson of a submarine commander and the great-grandson of a distinguished British diplomat. Bigelow Tea, which also boasts three generations of tea-drinking family members, can imagine teatime at the Cumberbatch’s with a whole house full of notable tea drinkers!

Benedict’s diverse film and TV career is also impressive and includes playing Kahn in Star Trek Into Darkness and the voice of Smaug in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.Currently he’s starring in 2014’s The Imitation Game (which recently landed him on the cover of TIME magazine!) and as a modern day Sherlock Holmes in BBC’s SherlockBenedict’s even famous for some amazing celebrity impressions!

Along with all his talent, Benedict also loves his tea. No surprise. And like his demanding roles, he upholds precise expectations for his cuppa, saying “Never ever, ever push a tea bag with a spoon. You’re out the front door if you do that!” Tough talk … and 3rdgeneration President and CEO of Bigelow Tea Cindi Bigelow agrees—do not squeeze that tea bag!  Another item Cindi has in common with Benedict? Family!

In a Twitter interview, Benedict was quoted as saying his Dad made the best tea (he and Cindi Bigelow share that same sentiment) while Benedict’s fiancée, theatre director Sophie Hunter, dished about how seriously the actor takes his tea. If she has any questions about brewing and serving tips for married life with Benedict, she can look at Bigelow Tea’s important tea tips! Even Bigelow Tea fans are a wealth of information, like @LifeCrustCutOff who tweeted her own tea brewing tips. It’s all good, even for an old school tea-lover like Benedict Cumberbatch!

Bigelow Tea Catches The Amazing Emma Stone Sipping Tea!

It’s so fun when Bigelow Tea catches an A-list celeb like Emma Stone in the act of one of the world’s favorite pastimes: tea drinking.

In late September, several weeks before her film, Birdman, released nationwide, Emma was snapped drinking tea with a girlfriend in the new downtown Tribeca Italian eatery, Gran Morsi.

It seems she was off to yoga, so in the world of Bigelow Tea, that can only mean one thing: a blend that’s detoxifying, warming and muscle-relaxing like a classic Green Tea or perhaps Novus Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea. Either will do the trick!

Bigelow Tea Takes Notice Of Bindi Irwin’s Sweet Sixteen!

You have one guess to figure out what Bigelow Tea and Australian teen conservationist, Bindi Irwin, have in common … it’s tea, mate!

It seems the sweet sixteen celebrated her milestone birthday on July 24 with a jungle-themed party at the Australian Zoo, some light reading, and a Chinese feast enjoyed with a traditional cup of tea.  Although the details of this mysterious cup have not been revealed, Bigelow Tea surmises it might have been a Chinese Oolong, a tea with mellow notes that complement Chinese cuisine. @SpoilSaffron tweets that it’s her favorite tea!

The adventure-seeker also added a learner’s permit to her lengthy list of achievements—actor, TV personality, singer, songwriter, dancer, author and entrepreneur. As if that weren’t enough for anyone triple her age, Bindi, earlier in her youth, released an exercise video for kids, Bindi Kidfitness, and a line of clothing, accessories and footwear for children under 10 called Bindi Wear.  She also served as Tourism Ambassador to Australia!

Crikey!

Today, Bindi works at the Australian Zoo, which she calls home, and is actively involved in advancing the mission of The Wildlife Warriors, a charity dedicated to the conservation and preservation of wildlife, founded by her parents, Steve and Terri in 2002. It’s refreshing to see a young person so involved in something near and dear to the Bigelow family’s heart: sustainability.

Happy birthday, Bindi! And may you have Sweet Dreams on your Sweet Sixteen!

Tea on TV: Simon Baker on The Mentalist Is Never Far from a Cup of Tea! 

bigelow tea mentalist

If you’ve seen the hit CBS series, The Mentalist, you probably know that handsome Simon Baker plays the role of Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation who solves crimes with his skills of alert observation. And, if you’ve caught an episode of the show you would also know that the Patrick Jane character loves his tea! In almost every episode he drinks at least a cup … and sometimes he’s shown pouring and serving it too!

Fans have become so obsessed with Baker’s character and his tea drinking, that they’ll even purchase teacups and saucers like the ones he uses on the show!

At Bigelow Tea we were wondering about what type of tea this sleuth character might be drinking….then we stumbled upon an interview with Tim Kang, who plays Kimball Cho on The Mentalist, an agent for the California Bureau of Investigation. He shared: “…Jane [Simon’s character] probably drinks Earl Grey and [my character] probably drinks green tea…”

Very interesting…and if they truly are that intuitive–then we’re sure that it’s from Bigelow Tea!

Bigelow Tea’s Earl Grey is a favorite of many amazing people, like @honeygirlkitch, who tweeted “So the jury is in …Bigelow Earl Grey is my favorite.”

Not surprisingly, Mr. Baker, a native of Australia, adores tea in real life too. He’s been quoted as saying his “turn-ons” include: “Hearing my kids laugh, a good cuppa tea, dancing with my wife.”

Bigelow Tea and Pop Star Ariana Grande Love Iced Tea

bigelow tea

Pop singer Ariana Grande lives the good life. Born with a gorgeous voice that can carry many tunes, she has followed her passion, and through hard work and dedication, made it to the top of the music industry. With hits like “Problem” and “Bang Bang,” it’s impossible to turn on the radio and not hear those catchy beats combined with Ariana’s one-of-a-kind vocals. Although she’s now pop star royalty, Bigelow Tea notes she still likes to relax like the rest of us. Ariana recently tweeted that, “Weekends are for iced tea, blowing bubbles, kisses, and tweeting. A lot. :)”

Because this chart climbing celebrity has so little downtime, Bigelow Tea suggests Green Tea with Pomegranate Iced Tea. The taste of green tea with pomegranate is indescribably delicious and if Ariana tries it once, she’ll be a fan forever. Best of all, the 8 quart-size bags per box makes 2 gallons. That’s enough to ensure her entire entourage has a sip of the good life too! If she wants to sweeten the deal, Bigelow Tea’s Half Iced Tea & Half Lemonade rocks, especially when it’s super hot on stage.

Now that she has her iced tea selection figured out, that’s “One Less Problem” for Ms. Grande!

Bigelow Tea’s classic Green Tea is pictured and featured in an article in the October/November issue of Dr. Oz The Good Life. The piece has reported on green tea and shared that studies show it may have health benefits, particularly when people consume 2-3 eight-ounce cups a day.  The staff of the magazine taste-tested several blends and raved about Bigelow Tea! They called it “Darned good”” and “pleasantly mild.” They also said, “I’d buy it.” Share your love for Green Tea on Facebook (like our fan Peggy Clay who posted “Love Love Love Bigelow Green Tea”) if you agree!

It sounds like Gwen Stefani could use a cup of Bigelow Tea’s Green Tea to keep her both energized and relaxed in the months ahead!

Hollaback Girl is back! She’s someone who does it all—she’s a famous recording artist, fashion designer, and busy mom all rolled into one! The fall, just months after bringing another baby into her rockin’ family, Gwen takes her place in a chair on “The Voice” next to music industry leaders Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams. Her presence, of course, brings new fans to the show like @m_langdang who tweets he’s watching the show just because she’s a judge.

If this isn’t a grueling enough schedule to make the average person go B-A-N-A-N-A-S, the L.A.M.B. fashion designer is also partnering with another brand and planning a New York Fashion Week comeback. Phew!

btfri4_Bigelow Tea Cooks It Up During National Pomegranate Month!

As a tea lover who could “drink tea all day long,” Gwen should be making sure she stays hydrated with her favorite tea flavors. Her No Doubt song “Hey Baby” even features a lyric about Chamomile tea! Always one to mix it up with her signature prints, Bigelow Tea recommends Gwen mix any Bigelow Green Tea with Bigelow Tea’s Pomegranate Pizzazz to add some, well, Pizazz, to those busy days.  It’s D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S and can be enjoyed hot or iced.

In an interview with HBO, Lena Dunham mentioned that when she’s stressed out, she likes to “drink a cup of tea.” Bigelow Tea imagines that “Constant Comment®” Green Tea would be a modern day classic tea for her on-the-go lifestyle.

The 28-year-old Dunham is the creator, writer, actress, and sometimes director of the HBO show Girls. In addition to making a few of her own movies including Tiny Furniture, Dunham held a varie-tea of typical jobs like babysitting and working as a restaurant hostess, before impressing the powers-that-be at HBO.

Life in Hollywood is fast-paced and it takes a special je ne sais quoi as well as lots of tea to keep up with the unstoppable and sassy Lena Dunham! As Girls fan @alicattx0 mentioned on Twitter, “tea and #hbogirls … perfect combo.” Now that’s a perfect evening!

Which Bigelow Tea would you pair with an episode of Girls?
