Bigelow Tea has been around for almost 70 years! Even better is when they realize that what is good about their brand such as their high quality tea that can be found at convenient places like Walmart should not change! However, Bigelow Tea packaging can be a way to change the brand without changing the quality. Bigelow is an inspiring brand to me because the value family and making the world a better place with their stance on sustainability.

Bigelow Tea has improved their packaging, but don’t fret about the quality inside! What stayed the same:
- Number of Tea Bags per box
- The name of the employee who packed that box and an easier to read best by date.
- A convenient tuck tab that makes it easier to open and close the new box.
- Not too mention the barcodes are adorable!
- Bigelow Tea has added 1 of 9 unique stories to the top of each tea box.
The Bigelow Family takes pride in their company. I love that they have added family stories to each box of tea. Reading the stories makes me fall in love with the brand even more!
Bigelow’s new and improved packaging has made me think about where I can improve in our life. Being gluten free with numerous food allergies impairs my ability to step out of our comfort zone. I have been making a list of ways to improve our home and functionality. However, one of the easy ways to improve is to reinvent a favorite recipe like I did below using Bigelow Tea Vanilla Chai Tea in the Chai-infused Creme Brulee French Toast Bake. It sticks with my need to offer nutritious foods but is decadent tasting as well!
Dylan loves to smell the spices and foods I am cooking with. Personally, I do it to encourage his love of great foods and he thinks its a treat. The “sniffing jar” story inspired me to let Dylan take a sniff. He smiled big and said that smells amazing!
