It is not often that you discover a company that you really like. One that you can delight in year round and one that conjures up such sentimental feelings. For me Bigelow Tea is that company.
Bigelow Tea was introduced to me by a tea drinking fanatic, aka Momma! Ever since I was old enough to drink tea I have been a fan of Bigelow Tea. I think what first got me addicted was, as a child we drank their peachtea for the duration of the summer. Even now when I think of my childhood I can still picture picnics in our back yard fort with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches while drinking our ice cold peach tea. Oh I need a glass of it now!
My momma made sun tea and we lived off of that the entire summer. I have many happy recollections of long summers and Bigelow Tea. I can still picture my momma sitting in the backyard with her iced tea and a summer read. It is funny how one drink can bring back all these childhood memories. Oh to be a child again . . .
A more recent memory is of Bigelow’s Cinnamon Stick Tea. While I was pregnant with little H I craved cinnamon something awful. My momma, knowing of this relentless craving, came across Cinnamon Stick at her local grocery store so she stocked up on it and fed my cinnamon addiction. I even carried the tea bags with me so I could have it at eateries. To this day I cannot get enough of it.
Bigelow Tea reminds me of comfort. When I am sick all I want is a warm blanket, comfy jammies and Bigelow’s Green Tea with Lemon. They have another one that I want to try. It is the Lemon Ginger Herb plus Probiotics to prevent me from being sick! Nothing soothes my weary soul like a warm cup of tea. Add in a yummy muffin and my world is set right. Oh and don’t forget that Dr. Oz just recommended that we all drink Oolong Tea and what better brand than Bigelow!
Bigelow Tea also reminds me of community. I love to gather with one of my book clubs and share great literature with delicious desserts and an assortment of Bigelow’s flavored teas. There’s just something about gathering with dear friends and baring a part of your soul that makes you a better person.
The best part of Bigelow Tea is that there is an enormous amount of flavors to choose from. I love that I can find a flavor to match my mood, season and cravings. When I contemplate what ultimately makes me a repeat customer it comes down to the crisp taste of Bigelow Tea. With Bigelow tea I know what to anticipate and by no means am I ever disappointed!
The theme of my life has always been 'why be quiet when you can talk'. With that said, I love the history behind Bigelow Tea's Constant Comment. You can read all about it for yourself here.
