Last year I was able to experience the Bigelow Tea’s Charleston Tea Plantation {America’s largest working tea garden} with the Bigelow family. It was a once in a lifetime experience and next week I will be telling you more about the Bigelow family. However now I want to talk about my experience at the Bigelow Tea factory! After having the experience to meet the Bigelow family, I can tell you for a fact that the Bigelow Tea factory embodies their family values!

~~~~~   BigelowTeaTour1#AmericasTea#shop   Walking into Bigelow Tea headquarters is surreal! I wish I could provide more pictures of the experience but Bigelow Tea needs to keep some of their mystery! The smells, the friendly people, and the sights & sounds of the Bigelow Tea factory were amazing. I can’t imagine going to work everyday with people that are (and like) family along with the glorious smell of tea!  

All through out the factory there are items from their past and present!

You can feel Ruth Bigelow in Bigelow Tea despite the fact she is no longer around with the stories, history, and of course with the tea that everyone loves to share. One of my favorite stories is about the whiffing jar that helped get Bigelow Tea started!

BigelowTeaTour4#AmericasTea#shop With the availability of information so easy to get, I think some brands struggle with creating a personal presence. It’s Bigelow’s personal goal to keep making a positive difference! Bigelow Tea’s (family’s) philosophy is…

 

“Do the right thing and good things will follow.”

I can’t wait to soon share with you more about Bigelow Tea’s sustainability efforts like pictured below with a picture from their cafeteria.

    My favorite tea is the apple, but I love all of them…especially since the weather is getting colder, it’s so comforting!

  2. Mandi Martin says

    I’ve drank Bigelow tea for years now. One of my all time favorites has to be the cranberry hibiscus. Sooooo delicious,

  3. Wilma P says

    My favorite teas are Constant Comment and English Teatime. However, I just spotted Salted Caramel Tea and I am intrigued.

  4. Tiffany Greene Elliott says

    Honestly I have never tried Bigelow Tea before but absolutely love to try the Green Tea with Wild Blueberry and Acai!! I learned also that there tea bags are individually wrapped in foil pouches to shield delicate tea leaves from air, moisture and surrounding aromas, locking in flavor and freshness.! Thank you!

    I absolutely love to drink tea. Tea > coffee for so many reasons! I am a big green tea drinker, as well as chamomile tea on the evening.

  6. Heather McKenzie Carter says

    I love that it is a family business. I feel that means they really stand behind their product, because it has their name on it.

  7. Heather in VA says

    As a military spouse I give them lots of love for sending tea to the troops. My favorite flavor is Salted Caramel.

  8. Laurie Emerson says

    I love Bigelow Tea and having been drinking it for as long as I can remember. My favorite tea is their Chamomile Vanilla Herbal Tea with Honey. It is so perfect for a sore throat!
