This Is Why You Should Drink Bigelow Green Tea

The second-most popular beverage in the world next to water, tea has long been a favorite drink around the globe (who knew #TeaProudly was an international sensation?!). While the taste of Bigelow Tea is totally awesome, did you know that green tea may also give you a more mellow, steady caffeine boost that can keep you going all day? Wait…catch a caffeine buzz while feeling mellow?! How is that possible? Author Hana Hong chronicled her journey on Readers Digest when she ditched coffee and switched to green tea for a week. Not only did she mellow out, she found the additional benefits of drinking green tea to be crystal clear. Let’s join Hana on her journey:

Day 1: Although it took a while to sink in, Hana was energetic, alert, and felt a sense of steady calmness throughout the day. Here’s why: the L-theanine in green tea calms the nervous system while increasing concentration levels. (Amazing!)

Day 2: There’s nothing as refreshing as a good night’s sleep (except maybe green tea!). Hana snoozed peacefully (zzzzzz…) without restless tossing and turning or waking in the middle of the night. She felt less anxious, and the mellow caffeine boost lasted a solid eight hours. (Yay!)

Day 3: Instead of feeling bloated and sluggish after lunch (yuck!), Hana felt a surge of productivity and alertness she’d never encountered after a meal before. There’s a reason, many say, why the use of green tea for digestive health dates back thousands of years!

Day 4: Hana noticed some serious changes in her skin—a healthy glow and no breakouts or undereye circles; and hyperpigmentation looked lighter. The catechins in green tea can fight damage caused by free radicals says the article, so it makes sense that it helped her skin look awesome!

Day 5: Green tea officially stole Hana’s heart! (awwww). She was focused, lively and her body and mind felt better on just about every level. The caffeine boost started lasting at least 10-12 hours. (Sweet!)

Day 6 and beyond!: Hana felt the cumulative effects of drinking green tea for six days in a row. She was less dehydrated, her digestion was much improved, her skin looked better than ever, and a hot cup of green tea helped Hana keep her cool—her frequency of mood swings decreased significantly. (Wow, those are some awesome benefits!)

If you’re inspired by Hana’s exciting journey and you yourself are new to green tea, grab a box of Six Assorted Bigelow Green Teas to get acquainted with some of Bigelow Tea’s fabulous flavors! Tag #TeaProudly to let us know how drinking green tea has changed your life!

Pair Your Favorite Comfort Food With Bigelow Tea

Rough day? We hear you. Those happen, and you know what? Bigelow Tea is a hug in a mug. So when you add your favorite comfort food to the mix, it’s literally the definition of a *perfect* pair.

While tea goes well with everything, it’s worth knowing that in general, when it comes to tea and food pairings, the stronger the tea, the more hearty the food. So, here goes: a few of our best comfort food and tea pairings. Put them in your back pocket for a rainy (or sleepy or sad or long) day or try it out for the holidays with family!

  1. Comfort = Anything sweet. If chocolate, rich treats and sugary goodness are your go-to, an Oolong or bold black tea – like English Teatime  or Vanilla Chai – will do the trick. Lighter foods, like an angel food cake or French madeleines pair well with a cup of green tea.
  2. Comfort = All things savory. Dreaming of sandwiches? Say, these Ham and Pear Sandwiches or this juicy Chamomile Braised ChickenTry an herbal tea, like I Love Lemon.
  3. Comfort = Salt + spice. Like salt and spice (yup, everything nice)? You’ll love pairing your favorite comfort food with a robust cup of Darjeeling. This flavor pairs well with rich, creamy, or spice-forward dishes.
  4. Comfort = Homestyle cooking. Soups? Mashed potatoes? Meat? Cheese. Earl Grey all the way. Earl Grey’s smooth flavor and bright citrus aroma perfectly complement the strong, earthy flavors in red meat dishes like Orange Beef and Chinese Broccoli, and Lamb Kebabs with Mashed Sweet Potatoes.
  5. Comfort = Breakfast. Maybe you’re a breakfast lover, in which case, you can’t go wrong with Bigelow sweet herbal teas, like Chamomile Mango. Try a cup with these recipes for Vanilla & Cinnamon Baked Challah French Toast or Caramel Apple Crunch Muffins. Yum!

Whatever your feel-good fix, there’s a Bigelow Tea flavor that’s sure to complement. And hey, if that doesn’t turn things around for you, talk it out with a friend or family (perfect timing with Thanksgiving tomorrow!). Whether it’s over a cup of tea or not (though a cup of tea never hurts), it always helps to spend some time, express yourself and share a laugh with your favorites in #TeaProudly style. Enjoy!

10 Fabulous Facts You Might Not Know About Tea

Ahhhh, wonderful, warm soothing tea. Who wants a cup? Apparently, a lot of us do—87 percent of millennials drink tea! So….tea lovers, want to expand your tea knowledge? Cozy up with a mug of your favorite Bigelow Tea and check out these ten fabulous facts about tea:

  1. White, green, oolong and black teas come from the leaves of the same tea plant species, Camellia sinensis. (now that’s a fun fact!)
  2. Herbal tea isn’t really tea at all. It’s made from an infusion or blend of leaves, fruit, bark, roots, or flowers of almost any edible non-tea plant. (Wow, who knew?)
  3. Sri Lanka is one of the best places on earth to grow tea. Bigelow Tea founder Ruth Campbell Bigelow fell in love with tea from the region and initiated a partnership with tea growers that has continued for over 70 years!
  4. The word tea comes from the Chinese T’e, which was the word in the Amoy dialect for the Camellia sinensis plant. In Mandarin, the word was ch’a, which is where the word chai is derived from. No matter how you say it, tea is delicious!
  5. Did you know that tea can be deliciously paired with food, just like wine?
  6. Earl Grey tea contains oil of bergamot, a fragrant citrus fruit with a green color similar to a lime. (Mmmmmmm.)
  7. 85 percent of tea consumed in United States is iced, according to Peter Goggi, president of Tea Association of the USA. Sip on, iced tea lovers!
  8. The tea bag was accidentally invented by an American. In 1904, tea and coffee importer Thomas Sullivan sent out samples in small silk pouches to customers. They popped the bags right into hot water and voilà—tea bags are by far the most popular way to brew tea these days!
  9. English author George Orwell penned the essay, “A Nice Cup of Tea,” first published in the London Evening Standard on January 12, 1946. His rules for making tea cover matters such as the best shape for a teacup and the advisability of using water that is still boiling. (Writers sure are a passionate bunch!)
  10. We can thank Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, for the traditional English teatime as we know it. In 1840, Anna started nibbling on a light afternoon meal with tea to help stave off hunger pangs in between lunch and the late dinner hour. Makes sense–who wants to hear their stomach growling all day?

3 Reasons Why Pomegranates Are So Amazing. (Especially In Tea.)

It’s exciting. It’s potent. It’s pomegranate. Ever since this “wonder fruit” found its place in Bigelow Tea’s blackgreen and herbal teas, tea lovers haven’t looked back. The flavor is unmistakably rich and robust, and hey, a cup of pomegranate tea has the perfect rosy hue – perfect for an Instagram filter, right?! As if you needed another reason to love it, we’ll give you three.

  1. There’s a whole month for celebrating pomegranates. Every November, pomegranates are in the spotlight. Why not use this time as an opportunity to try a new pomegranate flavor or recipe? Love a good twist on a classic? Try a tangy spin on a traditional Bigelow Tea favorite: Green Tea with Pomegranate (which also comes in an organic version, steep by Bigelow). This beautiful cup of tea offers a touch of sweetness and a hint of tartness, and packs a punch with the power of pomegranate which is the perfect way, we think, to celebrate #NationalPomegranateMonth!  And don’t forget to try Pomegranate Black Tea too!
  2. It’s a pretty neat and exotic fruit. (And it’s awesome to be a little different, right?) So, what is a pomegranate, anyway? A pomegranate is a round fruit with a thick, reddish skin that—when cut open—reveals ruby-red seeds called arils. High in antioxidants, potassium, vitamin C, and a great source of fiber, pomegranates are often used in cooking, juice blends, cocktails and, of course, tea!
  3. Pomegranates have quite the history. Pomegranates are rooted in history, and have been symbols of abundance, prosperity, and fertility for thousands of years. According to a Greek myth, the goddess Persephone was forced to spend every winter in the underworld because she had eaten pomegranate seeds there (worth it). And, of course, today, back in the real world, it can bring a wealth of flavor and health benefits to your cup of tea.

So, there you have it. More than enough reasons to add pomegranate to your life – and to your tea cup. Have a favorite flavor? Tag #TeaProudly to show it off!

Roasted Turkey with Constant Comment Glaze

Ingredients

Glaze:

Turkey and Gravy:

  • 1 10-15 pound (5-7.5g) turkey (thawed if previously frozen)
  • 1 lemon, cut into four pieces
  • 1 onion, peeled and cut into four pieces

  • 2 tablespoons (30mL) cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350º. Steep tea bags in 1 cup boiling water for 5 minutes. Squeeze excess liquid out of tea bags and discard. Reserve tea. Meanwhile, prepare a glaze by heating butter, brown sugar and cranberry juice into a saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Add tea and reduce mixture by cooking over medium high heat for 15 minutes. Set aside. To prepare turkey, remove giblets and neck from turkey, rinse inside and out and pat dry. Place a cut lemon and a cut-up onion into the cavity and truss the turkey. Place in an open roasting pan breast side up. Brush skin with glaze. Bake turkey in preheated oven. Keep glaze warm on stove and continue basting with glaze every 20 minutes. Remove turkey from oven and let stand for at least 20 minutes before carving. Discard any unused glaze. To make gravy, dissolve cornstarch in chicken stock. Place roasting pan on burner over medium heat, scraping browned bits. Add stock whisking constantly until thickened; about 1 minute. Strain gravy and serve with turkey. As a nice alternative, use a 9-11 pound oven stuffer roaster chicken in place of the turkey. For best results, tie the chicken with string at the legs and the wings. For the glaze reduce the number of tea bags from 12 to 8.

Thank You To Our Troops, Every Day

Tomorrow, Veteran’s Day, is a day near and dear to the hearts of everyone who is part of the Bigelow Tea family. We believe strongly in supporting the troops who do so much for our country. In 2009, Bigelow Tea created the Tea for the Troops program, which features customized packaging filled with 100 percent American-grown tea produced at the company’s Charleston Tea Plantation on Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina.

Created exclusively for the troops and not for retail sale, this special tea is a way for the company to thank those who serve and have served our nation with a truly American product that provides soldiers a taste of home. From Iraq and Afghanistan to USO facilities in airports where troops stay on their way to and from deployment, over four million tea bags have been delivered to troops across the globe. This special tea is also available to veterans in VFW chapters and VA hospitals.

With more than 180 locations around the world, the USO has been connecting America’s service members to family, home and country for over 75 years. To help build awareness for the USO and the great programs it offers our troops and their families throughout their service, Bigelow Tea created American Breakfast Tea—a line of robust black teas naturally formulated with 50% more caffeine than the average cup of tea. In 2015, Bigelow Tea became an official sponsor of the USO and began working with select retailers to donate portions of tea sales to USO centers serving local military communities.

The Bigelow family is proud of the small part they play in supporting these amazing men and women who work to keep our country safe. “Tea is a universal beverage and one in which relationships can be built.  It is a way to say that all of us back home are thinking of you and we want to thank you for all you are doing to bring peace to our world.” –Cindi Bigelow, president and CEO of Bigelow tea.

This Veteran’s Day, take a moment to honor all the men and women who have served in uniform. If you are a veteran from generations past or future, we celebrate you and thank you and your families for all you do for our country.

Old vs. New – And All the Other Reasons Why Tea is Steeped in History!

Alright, so history might not be your favorite subject, but when it comes to tea, it goes waaay back! Actually, if you think it’s pretty cool to drink tea now, just think – 2,100 years ago, others did, too! So, grab your fave Bigelow Tea flavor and let’s do a then vs. now.

Afternoon Tea

Then: Many tea drinkers may think of afternoon teatime as a British tradition (even though the post-lunch, pre-dinner cup and nibble has roots across numerous cultures). Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford is the woman to thank for the traditional English teatime as we know it. In 1840, Anna started partaking in the light meal to help stave off afternoon hunger pangs in between lunch and supper.

Now: Today, traipse into an afternoon tea party and be ready to see a scene with three-tiered serving stands filled with treats like tea sandwiches, petit fours, scones, and clotted cream. From fancy hotels to teahouses to your own kitchen, afternoon tea has come a long way since an afternoon snack – it’s a full-fledged event!

Iced Tea

Then: Richard Blechynden has often been attributed with making the first iced tea at the World’s Fair in St. Louis in 1904. As sales for his hot tea dropped while summer temperatures rose, he purportedly poured tea over ice to entice fairgoers. Some dedicated research tells another story, though, with iced tea’s roots reaching as far back as 1879, when Marion Cabell Tyree created a recipe for green tea over ice, which was published in a community cookbook called Housekeeping in Old Virginia. Later, in 1884, another recipe for iced black tea surfaced from the Boston Cooking School.

Now: Iced tea has become so popular, that there was even a bill introduced in 2003 that proposed a requirement for all Georgia restaurants that serve tea to serve it sweetened over ice. It was later determined to be an April Fool’s joke as an attempt to bring humor to the Legislature, but Georgia State Representative John Noel allegedly said that he wouldn’t mind if it became law!

Book About Tea

Then: Long ago—in 1211 to be exact—a famous Buddhist priest by the name of Eisai wrote what is known to be the oldest book on tea in Japan: Kissa Yojoki (“How to Stay Healthy by Drinking Tea”). Kind of cool to know that even in the 1200s, tea was a part of a trend of healthy living…

Now: Today, there are countless books, podcasts and blogs about tea. A quick snapshot of the popularity of tea articles today, the Tea page on Reddit has nearly 100,000 subscribers, more than one million subscribers on social media, and receives about 150 posts to share each week.

Tea in America

Then: Letters between John and Abigail Adams mention tea. One from July 1774 describes a hostess only serving coffee since tea (during the American Revolution) was considered unpatriotic. Fortunately, Americans came back around to this delightful beverage—and not just for throwing it into harbors.

Now: On any given day, more than 158 million Americans are drinking tea. Clearly, things have changed since the 1700s.

Sought after by noble, innovated by inventive brewers and written about for centuries, tea has a storied history. So, the next time you’re confronted by a historical fact and feel your eyes glazing over, just think about how tea was probably livening things up behind the scenes. Do you have a favorite tea-related story to tell from your own history? Tag #TeaProudly on social media and share it with us.

Make Mine a Mint! – The Story Behind Bigelow Mint Medley’s Famous, Fresh Taste

Let’s talk mint! A revitalizing, prized herb which has been used for ages in every civilization for its medicinal and culinary properties, mint is the bold star of one of the most refreshing sips to savor, Bigelow Tea’s Mint Medley.

Definitely a #TeaProudly favorites, Mint Medley has a bit of history of its own to boast.

It all started down at the (mint) farm… In the early 1960’s, the Bigelow family set out to develop a revitalizing mint tea.  In addition to being a flavor tradition in many countries, mint tea has been said to have a calming effect on digestion, be a great antidote for cough and congestion and is a non-caffeine revitalizer for an anytime pick me up.

To find top quality mint, the Bigelow family visited farms throughout the Northwest, where the rainy, chill climate is ideal for growing the multi-variety herb.  In fact, the Northwest region even once led the world in mint farming and mint oil production.

Finally in Oregon, the Bigelow family met its mint match – the family farmers and multi-generational growers that have been growing mint crops specifically for Bigelow Tea for over 50 years. In addition to a shared love of mint, the families found their philosophy to produce the best possible product for their customers aligned perfectly, a commitment and business model which has persevered since.

Today, the father and son farming team that provide Bigelow Tea with its tasty and thrilling mint taste only harvest the fragrant and potent little leaves twice a year.  The result – unparalleled superior quality, cleanliness in processing and tea connoisseur worthy “crop to cup” traceability. Bigelow Tea and its mint farmers proudly contend no mint is purer, no mint tea more flavorful that Bigelow’s Mint Medley. So next time you’re thinking tea, make it a mint… enjoy some today!
