Fall For Bigelow Pumpkin Spice Tea This October



October brings cooler weather, cozy sweaters, crisp leaves, mugs of Bigelow Tea and pumpkins! We’re excited that it’s finally pumpkin season, and the reasons to celebrate are many.

The pumpkin packs some powerful and healthy perks: A cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin contains more than 200 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A. Pumpkins are also rich in beta-carotene—the compounds that give the gourd their bright orange—which the body converts into a form of vitamin A. They are also good sources of vitamin B, potassium, fiber, protein and iron.

Not only are they nutrient-dense, pumpkins are rich in history! Pumpkins are native to Central America and Mexico, but now grow on six continents worldwide. Other fun facts about pumpkins:

  • As one of the most popular crops in the United States, 1.5 billion pounds of pumpkins are produced each year.
  • The record for the world’s heaviest pumpkin was broken September 30, 2012, at the Topsfield Fair in Massachusetts. Ron Wallace of Greene, Rhode Island, entered a pumpkin weighing 2,009 pounds.
  • According to the History Channel, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns is a Halloween tradition that originated hundreds of years ago in Ireland. Back then, however, jack-o’-lanterns were made out of turnips or potatoes; it wasn’t until Irish immigrants arrived in America and discovered the pumpkin that the ritual we know today was born.
  • Most parts of the pumpkin are edible, including the fleshy shell, the seeds, the leaves, and even the flowers.
  • And the greatest thing about the pumpkin? It tastes delicious in our Pumpkin Spice Tea!

Bigelow’s Pumpkin Spice is a black tea blended with delicate spices and pumpkin flavors —just like your grandmother’s homemade pumpkin pie. The savory, well-rounded taste makes this blend a tea for all seasons. So raise a cup to the pumpkin, a gourd we can all adore!

“For every leaf, that twirls the breeze,
May useful hints and lessons give;
The falling leaves and fading trees
Will teach and caution us to live.”

– John Clare , Autumn

Autumn is the glorious season of colorful leaves, crisp fresh air, spicy aromas and harvest festivals.  It’s a celebration of nature’s bounty – a sustainable feast of everything organic, like apples, pears, pumpkin, squash, potatoes, zucchini and corn.  Add some antioxidant rich spices and herbs to the harvest mix, and you’ll enjoy a sensory explosion of flavors and enticing scents.  At Bigelow Tea, we welcome the autumn harvest with a delightful cornucopia of organic, herbal and spicy teas, like Bigelow® Pumpkin Spice Tea , Bigelow® Apple Cider Herbal Tea ,  and Cinnamon Stick® Tea.
