For tea fanatics, every minute of the day is the right time to break out the Bigelow Tea. But if you had to pick one very best time of day for your steaming mug, what would it be? Take the survey below and see what everyone else is saying. Yup, you need to choose. If you find this decision highly stressful, breathe deeply and brew up some Sweet Dreams. That’ll do the trick.
If your fave isn’t listed, feel free to ad lib. Is there anybody else out there like Anabell who tweets about brewing her tea at 2:40 in the morning? Yikes that’s super early but we say tea is for anytime of the day!!
Quietly sipping and savoring a cup of aromatic Bigelow Tea on a warm summer day is like stepping into a Zen-like state in which the pure water is the Yin and the flavorful tea is the Yang. One complements the other. If the water is pure, the tea experience will be delightful. If the water quality is poor, the tea will be compromised. It’s just that simple. So, in honor of National Water Quality Month, Bigelow Tea has some Sustainabili-TEA tips to help you optimize the water quality in your home, so that every drop of water is the best (and safest) you can drink.
The problem with hard water (water with a high mineral content), is that it tastes metallic and may leave a film floating in your teacup or kettle ―making it less desirable for tea, hot or iced. Water quality not only affects our tea drinking experience, it impacts our health and the environment.

Whether you’re an incoming freshman or rising senior, tea is an ideal campus companion. Check out this #tb video featuring Bigelow Tea President and CEO Cindi Bigelow visiting her alma mater, Boston College:
Back in 2009 she talked tea with the students. As she explains in the clip, tea contains L-theanine, an amino acid that combines with the caffeine in tea to stimulate the mind while relaxing the body. That means it will help you stay up late to study without the jittery effects of coffee. Awesome, right? And the herbal and decaf varieties are great picks for those times when you prefer no caffeine kick at all.
Love. Set. Serve. Important tennis terms, yes? But also words that apply to the joy of drinking Bigelow Tea! As the US Open tennis begins in Flushing Meadows, New York, here’s a little discussion of what tea and tennis have in common.
Love. The term for “zero,” in tennis originated with the idea that tennis is played for the love of the game. And how does this apply to your cup of Bigelow Tea? Well, everyone loves it, of course! Raise your hand if you agree with the phrase (and the name of a tasty Bigelow herbal tea) “I Love Lemon!”
Set. Tennis matches are made up of sets. Winning in straight sets is a seriously great thing. And how does the word “set” apply to tea? That’s easy: Bigelow Tea offers an amazing range of gift sets to give the tea lovers in your life.
Serve. Possibly the tennis player’s most powerful tool is his or her serve. It’s how each point begins, and a serve that the opposing player cannot return is called an “ace.” In the tea world, serving tea is the final step in getting that mug to your eager lips. Serve your Bigelow Tea over ice in the summer for a truly refreshing experience.
Tea and tennis fans like @TeaForDummies appreciate a little tea with their tennis. So, as you enjoy watching the players at the US Open this year, brew up some Bigelow Tea and remember that tennis and tea make a perfect match!

Retiring Joe’s number is a testament to him and the championship Yankee teams he coached. “I am incredibly humbled,” Joe said in a statement. “Because of what our players accomplished … No. 6 will stand for everything our players achieved.” Joe joins other Yankee greats like Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle and Jackson. Talk about a Field of Dreams!
Tea drinkers appreciate Joe’s love for Bigelow Tea’s Green Tea from years back when he was diagnosed with cancer. His Bigelow Tea was always on the Yankees bench. Bigelow Tea Facebook fan Penny Zeiter Shamy recently shared her “Joe story” of trying for ages to get her husband to drink Bigelow Tea’s Green Tea. He wouldn’t … until he saw that Joe Torre recommended it. “Thank you Bigelow Tea!” And Joe himself said, “when I found out how good green tea was for me, Bigelow was easy to love!”
Bigelow Tea recently congratulated Joe when he was welcomed into the hallowed halls of Cooperstown. Well, go ahead and raise another mug of tea today to commemorate the Yankees retiring Jersey No.6! As his plaque at Cooperstown reads: Joe Torre is a “Beacon of serenity and stature in the Dugout.” Maybe it was all that green tea!
So, where are lemons grown? On US soil, mainly in California and Arizona, although the lemon tree flourishes in temperate climes and is iconic to the mountainous landscape of Sorrento and the Amalfi coast, the birthplace of limoncello.
And here’s a fascinating ditty: when given a choice of eating an orange, grapefruit, peach, apple or lemon, cows will choose lemons first! The assumption being: The juice works wonders as a digestive aid.
So don’t be a sourpuss! Turn lemons into Bigelow Tea lemonade today. And drink up!
