Bigelow Tea Reports On Penn State Research That Says Green Tea May Keep Your Mouth Safe From Certain Forms Of Cancer

Yes, Bigelow Tea in a big mug can warm your hands and it can bring delicious aromas to your nose … but it’s the mouth that really gets to enjoy Bigelow Tea. The mouth is the gateway to Bigelow Tea’s rich flavors and that soothing sensation of sipping and swallowing tea. Now there’s news that Green Tea may actually keep your mouth safe from some forms of cancer! Read on.

A new Pennsylvania State University study published in Molecular Nutrition and Food stated that green tea might kill oral cancer cells, and boost healthy ones. In the study the authors found that a compound in green tea triggers a process in the cancerous cells’ mitochondria that leads to early cell death. A previous study in 2002 found that green tea could induce cancer cell death and suggested “regular consumption of green tea could be beneficial in the prevention of oral cancer.”

This is exciting news! So, in addition to tasting good, keeping you warm and making special memories, Bigelow Green Tea might keep your mouth healthy. Another wonderful reason to enjoy Bigelow Tea during its milestone 70th year@DarlenyGomezR tweeted that she might be obsessed with Bigelow’s green tea … are you?

Loving American-Grown Spearmint At Bigelow Tea!

As Bigelow Tea celebrates its 70th anniversary, it’s time to look at the good things that continue to happen here … and today it’s all about the flavor of mint! As a family-owned American company that has been blending teas for three generations, Bigelow Tea enjoys the luxury of not only sipping some of the world’s finest teas, but of being able to select only the best quality ingredients for its recipes. When you enjoy tea as much as the Bigelow family—and your name is on the package, you want to be choosy.  It is why Bigelow Tea sources all of its ingredients from trusted suppliers who share the company’s passion for tea.

The pure, clean 100% American-grown spearmint that is masterfully blended into Plantation Mint® Tea and Mint Medley® herb tea is no exception. The mint is grown in the northwest corner of the United States by a family company of multi-generational growers who, when Bigelow Tea set out in the early 1960s to develop a tea with the refreshing taste of spearmint, demonstrated the same uncompromising care and craftsmanship that Bigelow Tea demands.  And the two families have enjoyed a loyal relationship ever since.

Each year the father and son team expertly grows acres upon acres of the finest quality mint that is meticulously harvested only two times each year.  The superior quality of their product, the cleanliness of their processing and the traceability of the mint from “crop to cup” are what make them ideal partners for Bigelow Tea.

Whether you enjoy Bigelow mint teas hot or over a tall glass of ice, passion, quality and exceptional flavor is what you’ll taste in every cup of Bigelow Tea.

Bigelow Tea Goes For Mellow During National Caffeine Awareness Month

bigelow tea national caffeine awareness month

Bigelow Tea knows that tea drinkers sometimes need a little boost from their favorite beverage … but during March’s National Caffeine Awareness Month it might be time to try a few less-caffeinated options.

One great choice is Bigelow Herbal Tea. Herbal teas are actually not made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis bush, so they are completely caffeine free. Mellow herbs like mint and chamomile make these teas tasty and invigorating, without any caffeine. Try Chamomile Mango or the aptly-named Sweet Dreams this month before bedtime.

Another great alternative is the full line of Bigelow Decaffeinated Teas. These teas have the same robust taste as many Bigelow black and green tea favorites, but they have only 1-8 mg of caffeine per serving. So, for example, if you want a little less “lift” in your Lemon Lift, try the Lemon Lift decaf!

Whether caffeine is a vital part of your morning or something you prefer to forego, Bigelow Tea has an option for you this and every month.

Bigelow Tea Raises a Cup to Women Everywhere

March is National Women’s History Month—a time when we recognize the contributions of women in history and contemporary society. The 2015 theme is titled, “Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives,” and presents an opportunity for Bigelow Tea to highlight the story of our tenacious founder, Ruth Campbell Bigelow, whose story weaves into the essential fabric of the company’s—and nation’s—history.

In 1945, inspired by an early Colonial recipe, Ruth created the first cup of “Constant Comment”® Tea in her New York City brownstone kitchen. Soon after, the Bigelow Tea Company was born. Because of the bold choices—and fine quality teas—that Ruth made, Bigelow Tea, as a third generation family run company, has become a household name and is happily celebrating a 70th Anniversary this year under president and CEO, Cindi Bigelow, Ruth’s granddaughter.

This month, raise a mug of tea to the influential women of the past and present and savor a cup of tea in honor of the wonderful women in your life—@gglugo has the perfect Wonder Woman mug for the occasion.

Bigelow Tea Prepares For Cold & Flu Season

bigelow tea flu

Like chicken noodle soup, a hot mug of Bigelow Tea just makes you feel better when you’re suffering from a cold or the flu. The warmth, the aroma and the enticing flavor of tea can really soothe you from the inside out! So, as cold & flu season approaches, share your favorite “sick day” Bigelow Tea option!

Do you prefer a nice, low-key herbal blend like fragrant Peppermint Or perhaps your choice is a green tea such as the invigorating “Constant Comment”® Green. Alternatively, do you want that traditional black tea boost from a cup of Earl Grey? And zesty Lemon Ginger Herbal Plus Probiotics is delicious and good for your digestion. Really, you can’t go wrong with whatever variety you choose!

Of course, the CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine as the best way to reduce the chances of getting the flu. But Joe Simrany, president of the Tea Council of the USA, recommends consuming plenty of fluids especially hot tea. “Hot tea soothes the throat and warms the body on chilly winter days, and it can promote relaxation.” And some research findings report that drinking black tea might improve the body’s defenses and quicken the response to bacteria and viruses. One study indicated that drinking tea activated immune cells and boosted the immune system!

So, drink up! Here’s to a healthy cold & flu season!
