Bigelow Tea Facebook Fans Share Special Family Tea Traditions

Engaging with our Bigelow Tea fans on Facebook is great fun. Recently, we posted a question about favorite family tea traditions and got several comments that touched us—so much that we had to share a few here! The love of tea certainly runs deep in many families, as it does in ours. In fact, the Bigelow Tea family tradition began nearly 70 years ago when matriarch Ruth Campbell Bigelow created “Constant Comment.”® So it’s wonderful to know that her signature tea blend is one that often evokes fond family memories like these.

Cynthia H. recalled having “many tea parties with my mom when I was growing up, each and every one [full of] special memories. My grandson and I are the ones that share those special moments now. From picking out which pot to use, choosing our teacups and finally choosing which tea we would have that day, I hope I am making some special memories for him of our times together.” Jacki from Indiana told a similar story: “My grandfather taught me to drink tea. He had his big cup and a saucer that looked like a bowl. He’d pour his tea in it to cool it down a tad. Then he’d do mine. And we’d drink together. My great-grandson is learning now. He likes tea and drinks with his Memaw.”

Encourager from South Carolina and her mom have started Tuesday night teatime for “just us girls.” Finally, as Pamala H. said, tea can make a bad day better. “My dad always made me cinnamon tea whenever I felt bad. He thought a hot cup of tea and a hug could fix anything.” We agree, and think Cinnamon Stick tea makes everything better!

 Thank you to all who shared their tea stories, and from our family to yours, here’s to many more teatime memories!


Giving Back Is All In A Day’s Work For Bigelow Tea Employees

Some of the Bigelow Tea employees who volunteered their time to read to children

In this season for giving thanks, we at Bigelow Tea recognize how fortunate we are to have such loyal customers who allow us to do what we love: bring you the finest teas! A big part of our mission is to give back to the community. “Do the right thing, and good things will follow.” It’s a philosophy imbued by company founder Ruth Campbell Bigelow and carried on by our employees. Today, we’re proud to highlight a few of the ways our Bigelow Tea “family” is making a difference.

Read Aloud Day – Bridgeport, CT,  Grades K-6

The Fairfield office has supported the Read Aloud Day program for six years, sending volunteers to read to children in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Here’s a sampling of the volunteers’ comments:

“What an amazing experience today was. The students were so excited when I entered the classroom … I couldn’t believe how engaged the children were when I was reading … I did tell the children I work for Bigelow Tea and we make tea bags. One little girl asked me what a tea bag was and before you knew it the whole class was talking about tea and who in their family drinks tea.”

“For me it was a great experience. I walked away from this feeling that It really mattered to those children that I was there and talked to them about the book as well as other random questions that they had to ask.”

United Way Day of Caring Diaper Drive

Oh baby! Employees from Bigelow Tea’s Fairfield, CT, and Boise, ID, offices collected 12,500 diapers to distribute to local mothers and families in need, along with baby wipes, powder, diaper rash cream and shampoo. It was our third year participating in this amazing event, and we can’t wait to do it again!

Thank you Bigelow Tea volunteers! We are so thankful for each and every one of you!
