Cindi Bigelow and Bill met at the Natural Foods East conference in Baltimore, MD last Fall. At that time, Bill praised Bigelow’s Earl Grey tea so much that Cindi asked if he could send along his story to share with our other passionate tea drinkers. Below is Bill’s story.
“I wanted to tell you how much I love Bigelow’s Earl Grey Tea. I have to admit that I go out of my way to drink only your brand of Earl Grey as I have tried various brands of Earl Grey. Bigelow has the perfect blend of tea and bergamot oil. I rarely travel without it. As I stay in various hotels and dine at different restaurants, I always ask if they serve Bigelow’s Earl Grey Tea. When I find out that they do not, I must ask for hot water and pull out one of my Bigelow tea bags. This picture is of my Bigelow Earl Grey tea bag at a Cracker Barrel restaurant.
This past winter, we took our kids on a 8 day Caribbean Disney cruise. During our first breakfast, our drink waiter brought out an assortment of teas. He did not have Bigelow Earl Grey but he went on a search for some. He did come back with a non Bigelow tea bag. I politely refused and pulled out one of my Bigelow Earl Grey tea bags. He watched as I pulled it out of the package and dipped the tea bag into the hot water. I then gave him the wrapper to smell. You would have thought I gave him gold the way his eyes became big. He was so impressed with the smell that he took it around the dining room and offered other waiters to smell the wrapper. I was so amused by this that I went back to my stateroom and gave him an unopened Bigelow Earl Grey tea bag. You would have thought that I gave him a crisp $100 bill. He was so grateful.
I do not start any day without Bigelow Earl Grey tea and I wanted to thank you for allowing me to start every morning refreshed!”
Have a great day!
Bill from Maryland
