Tea (n): cozy in a cup, snuggle in a cup. see also, “a moment just for you”

Growing up, tea was a big part of my life. My mom wasn’t really a coffee drinker but always loved a cup of tea. It was introduced to me as a lovely night time ritual for calming down and getting ready for bed. And of course, a warm cup of tea with honey was always given when I didn’t feel well. I have such vivid memories of my mom and me drinking tea in our matching Princess of Quite A Lot and Queen of Everything mugs on cold winter evenings. It’s funny (and beautiful) how a taste or smell can transport you in time.

Now, my wife can’t have caffeine, so an herbal tea is her drink of choice. And so our son now loves tea too and they enjoy the caffeine-free options, of course! It’s become our family thing. And with the year we all had in 2020, a hot cup of tea gave us a moment of comfort, a warm hug we were all craving, and a little piece of wellness in our own home. January is Hot Tea Month, and Bigelow® Tea is our go-to during this month and throughout the year. 

Family and comfort : That’s exactly what tea reminds me of.  And that’s what I LOVE about Bigelow® Tea: family. Bigelow® Tea is a family-owned company, carried on by three generations for over 75 years. Also, their products are manufactured right here in the United States. The family members are involved in every single step of the process: creating flavors, buying ingredients, and testing raw materials! As they said – their name is on it, they want to make sure it’s perfect!

The company also has strong ethical business practices – giving back to the local community, national causes, and protecting our environment by continually striving to improve the environmental responsiveness of their packaging. A win-win: the best for you and the best for our planet. And a bigger win – it’s available at the mothership: Target. You can purchase it in the store or online.

One thing that 2020 taught me was to support more local, family businesses. That is why I’m so proud to drink and share Bigelow® Tea with y’all. #TeaProudly #BigelowHugInAMug
