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 and flu season approaches, share your favorite “sick day” Bigelow Tea option!

Do you prefer a nice, low-key herbal blend like fragrant Chamomile? Or perhaps your choice is a green tea such as the invigorating Green Tea with Mint? 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 may aid 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.

Celebrate Fall With A Mug of Bigelow Tea’s Salted Caramel Tea

Autumn is one of the Bigelow family’s favorite seasons. The changing colors of the leaves – coupled with the crisp, cool air – sets the perfect scene for brewing a cup of Bigelow Tea. Fall is also the ideal time to enjoy Bigelow Tea’s seasonal flavors, like sweet and savory Salted Caramel.

Smooth and succulent caramel is hard to resist! Bigelow Tea has taken that rich, buttery flavor and blended it into a combination of sweet and salty. Hand-picked black tea, luscious caramel
and natural salt flavors, rose hips and chicory root combine into a beautifully balanced treat for the senses. The aroma of Salted Caramel tea evokes a warm cozy feeling, like baking and the bigelow tea salted caramel boxfirst fire lit in the fireplace. And the flavor brings back candy store nostalgia without the calories.

Add a splash of milk and a little sweetener for a sublime guilt-free indulgence, or simply settle in for an evening cuppa in autumn-inspired bliss, like @fauvertwin1, who tweeted, “Ah! Bigelow’s salted caramel tea. Not a bad way to end the evening.” Saying so long to summer is always bittersweet, but a mug of Salted Caramel tea puts focus on the sweet.

Have You Tried Bigelow Tea’s Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea Plus Probiotics?

You can always grab a cup of tea to calm things down or settle in for your evening, but did you know Bigelow Tea has a tea that may also help settle your stomach? Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea Plus Probiotics is not only tasty, it’s also blended to help support healthy digestion.bigelow tea lemon ginger herbal tea

Adding lemon to tea is a time-honored tradition, practiced from England to India. The tart flavor of lemon counters the earthy and tannic flavor of cinnamon. And ginger adds its own distinct notes of spice, heat and a woody aroma. It’s a zesty taste trio that is not to be missed!

But the benefits of this blend go far beyond your palate. Ginger is considered a natural aid for nausea. This is supplemented by a probiotic called GanedenBC 30, which is resistant to high temperatures and thus won’t break down in hot tea. Probiotics are sometimes referred to as “good bacteria” and help maintain a healthy balance in your digestive system.

If you’ve just eaten a particularly adventurous meal, take @LordRiddlesXIII’s advice and brew a pot of Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea Plus Probiotics as a tasty defense. Delish!
