The crisp weather and turning leaves that arrive in time for Columbus Day put us all in the mood for fall flavors here at Bigelow Tea! We just can’t get enough pumpkin, cinnamon, apple and spice at this time of year, and in the true spirit of Christopher Columbus, we’re exploring them all in a delicious variety of Bigelow Teas!
After all, Columbus is commemorated for his arrival in the New World on October 12, 1492 – opening the Americas to greater European exploration. He would cross the Atlantic several more times, and by his third voyage he realized that he had not discovered Asia as he had initially intended but instead had come upon land previously unknown to most Europeans. And while Columbus later became a controversial historical figure, his sense of adventurous discovery is still entrenched in American culture.
It would be more than another century after Columbus’ first journey for tea to arrive in Europe – and then in to Colonial America via Dutch traders. Thank goodness for this important addition to the New World! So, to commemorate Columbus and early autumn, may we suggest these flavorful Bigelow Teas to celebrate and enjoy the season:
Bigelow Cinnamon Stick Tea – a hearty black tea with pure, natural cinnamon.
Bigelow Spiced Chai Tea – black tea with exotic premium spices.
Bigelow Pumpkin Spice Tea – black tea with natural pumpkin flavor, cinnamon, licorice root, clove and ginger.
Bigelow Apple Cider Herbal Tea – apple, hibiscus, cinnamon, spices and other natural flavors.
Of course, you can enjoy these wonderful teas anytime, but now just seems like a great time to spice things up!
