Happy Valentine’s Day from all of Us!

Cupid

With a blinding flash of bright pink, Valentine’s Day bisects February with a reminder that almost anything can be packaged in heart-shaped boxes, and if you don’t impress your significant other, you’re definitely in for six more weeks of winter.

Many look forward to the occasion with big ideas for home-made chocolates, construction paper cards and dinner for two, but Bigelow Tea lovers can look forward to their own special tea made just for the holiday. Bigelow Tea offers seasonal Valentine’s blends in White Chocolate Kisses and Sweetheart Cinnamon.
