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 donates 100 percent of proceeds to local organizations that provide members of the community with shelter, educational services, counseling, crisis management services, after-school tutoring, recreational programs, and stock food pantries. 3rd generation Bigelow Tea President and CEO Cindi Bigelow, personally visits these charities to observe, first-hand the impact these Community Challenge dollars have on the various programs and says, “Each year I am overwhelmed by the enormous need here in our community and by the fine services these charities provide.”

The Community Challenge is a perfect event to bring the whole family. In addition to featuring a 5k certified course, there’s also a 2-Mile Fitness Walk, and Kids’ Fun Run. Childcare will be available so participants can run or walk.

Dr. Oz Likes Bigelow Tea

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!

Sipping Bigelow Green Tea Is Smart!

Bigelow Tea recognizes that September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month—so here’s some info about the signs and symptoms of prostate cancer.

Symptoms of Prostate cancer include frequent or painful urination and frequent pain or stiffness in the lower back, hips or upper thighs.

Living a healthy lifestyle (eating well, avoiding smoking and exercising often) can help prevent the disease, but men over the age of 50—or over 40 if you are African-American or have a family history of the disease—should consider yearly exams for the disease.

A study, published in the academic journal Phytomedicine, suggests that green tea could play a vital role in protecting the body against cancer. That’s good news for @juliahartlieb, who tweeted that she drinks “endless” cups of it every day!

Bigelow Tea good friend Joe Torre—who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1999—also knows that sipping green tea is an easy way to feel good every day!

So now that you’ve been educated about the prostate, it’s time to break out the Bigelow Green Tea and sip your way to good health!

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month from Bigelow Tea!

¡Feliz Hispanic Heritage Month!

Bigelow Tea appreciates history and loves learning about world cultures, so here’s a chance to talk more about one of the fastest growing communities in the U.S.! What began as a week of observation in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson became, under President Ronald Reagan, a full 30-day period from September 15 through October 15. Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors hail from Mexico, Central and South America, and Spain—many of whom arrived in the United States with “Sweet Dreams” of their own.

However you choose to celebrate, Bigelow Tea has wonderful recipes and bilingual packaging to make it easier for Spanish-speaking individuals to become familiar with these tasty teas. From Dulce Sueño to Te Verde Descafeinado and from margaritas to quesadillas, we’ve got you covered for your siesta and fiesta! Or, create your own version of mom’s receta favorita with Bigelow Tea. Of course, we’d love a Facebook message with a photo or the recipe, so come say hi!

Bigelow Tea would like to give a big social media #shoutout to Latina actress Sofia Vergara from Modern Family. @MOFYNation tweeted Sofia’s awesome quote, “I love my character, it makes me proud to play her as a symbol of many Latin women.” Bigelow Tea fans are lovin’ her character too and enjoying their favorite beverage as they watch the show. #MOFY lover @tbhlana brags, “spending my nights drinking way too much tea & watching modern family.” The Manzanilla Mango tea would be a great midnight pairing.
