Bigelow Tea Voices Gwen Stefani’s Talent, Style, and Taste for Tea

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!

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.

 

Bigelow Tea Fashion Find: Donna Karan Loves Tea!

Bigelow Tea Fashion

The clothes. The hair. The makeup. The nails. The runway. The theater. The coveted front row. There’s no hotter ticket in town in September than Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and Bigelow Tea certainly loves a good show! As the fashion elite and Hollywood A-listers step out in their fall finest, the designers themselves will no doubt be excited to show their latest designs. Among them will be iconic American fashion designer Donna Karan, who it turns out appreciates tea as well as great design!

Interestingly, tea seems to have found its place steeped in the world of fashion, with many designers reporting their love for their #dailycup. @CINDAAA knows that fashion and tea are a winning combination!

Donna built an empire at the intersection of comfort and femininity—with ‘seven easy pieces’ that changed the way women dressed. A devoted teaista, whose mantra is about finding ‘calm in the chaos,’ DK often conducts business dealings over tea at her downtown Urban Zen store.  Her DKNY show is slated for 1pm on September 7th.

So tell us: Who’s your fashion cup of tea?

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!

Bigelow Tea Loves Tempting Teapots

As the hippest tea lovers know, tea drinking is a delicious ritual whether you’re grabbing a to-go mug of your favorite Bigelow Tea on the run (don’t be late for that awesome internship!) or sipping from a steaming mug with study buddies.

Good Water Is Key At Bigelow Tea

bigelow tea

Quietly sipping and savoring a cup of aromatic Bigelow Tea on a warm summer day is like stepping into a Zen-like state in which the pure water is the Yin and the flavorful tea is the Yang.  One complements the other.  If the water is pure, the tea experience will be delightful.  If the water quality is poor, the tea will be compromised.  It’s just that simple. So, in honor of National Water Quality Month, Bigelow Tea has some Sustainabili-TEA tips to help you optimize the water quality in your home, so that every drop of water is the best (and safest) you can drink.

The problem with hard water (water with a high mineral content), is that it tastes metallic and may leave a film floating in your teacup or kettle ―making it less desirable for tea, hot or iced. Water quality not only affects our tea drinking experience, it impacts our health and the environment.

So, what to do? First, know the water quality in your house.  Next, consider  installing either  a whole-house distiller or faucet filters.  If cost is a concern, buy yourself a filtered pitcher. Then, put the kettle on and have a perfect cup of worry-free tea!  Follow @MelodyAWriter’s suggestion and try some Bigelow® Plantation Mint Tea.

US Open Tennis & Bigelow Tea: What a Match!

bigelow tea tennis

Love. Set. Serve. Important tennis terms, yes? But also words that apply to the joy of drinking Bigelow Tea! As the US Open tennis begins in Flushing Meadows, New York, here’s a little discussion of what tea and tennis have in common.

Love. The term for “zero,” in tennis originated with the idea that tennis is played for the love of the game. And how does this apply to your cup of Bigelow Tea? Well, everyone loves it, of course! Raise your hand if you agree with the phrase (and the name of a tasty Bigelow herbal tea) “I Love Lemon!”

Set. Tennis matches are made up of sets. Winning in straight sets is a seriously great thing. And how does the word “set” apply to tea? That’s easy: Bigelow Tea offers an amazing range of gift sets to give the tea lovers in your life.

Serve. Possibly the tennis player’s most powerful tool is his or her serve. It’s how each point begins, and a serve that the opposing player cannot return is called an “ace.” In the tea world, serving tea is the final step in getting that mug to your eager lips. Serve your Bigelow Tea over ice in the summer for a truly refreshing experience.

Tea and tennis fans like @TeaForDummies appreciate a little tea with their tennis. So, as you enjoy watching the players at the US Open this year, brew up some Bigelow Tea and remember that tennis and tea make a perfect match!
