I’ve enjoyed the various flavors of Bigelow Tea since the mid 1990s. I truly appreciate how Bigelow seals each tea bag individually with an air-tight wrapper. This helps preserve the freshness and delicate tastes of their teas while preventing other flavors from entering.
At roughly ten cents per bag, Bigelow teas can be well-afforded. Even in the tightest of budgets, room can be made for an (at least occasional) cup of hot or iced Bigelow tea.
Bigelow offers a voluminous line of teas, that make the flavorful enjoyment of healthful beverages nearly impossible for anyone, since there’s a Bigelow tea to please just about any individual palate. They sell each flavor in individual boxes and flavor variety packs as well, so the consumer can sample a little bit of each taste without breaking the bank by buying a whole box of each flavor.
Most of the Bigelow Teas offer healthy antioxidants and phytochemicals as well as no added sugars or fats. Cumulatively thus, in my view, drinking lots of tea in place of lots of pop, whole milk, juices, and other calorie-laden beverages, promotes a healthier constitution and thus, enhances the quality of one’s life who drinks it, and extends the duration of life itself. So drink tea! You’ll live longer, and better.
Bigelow packages their teas in sturdy, re-closable, easily-spotted boxes that describe how they grow each tea, a nutritional label, a “Caffeine Meter” on some boxes that shows the amount of caffeine contained in the subject tea, instructions for how best to brew the tea, and how to contact Bigelow either via phone or the web.
I’ve written some reviews of the flavors of Bigelow Tea that I’ve sampled, and invite readers to check them out and try some of the many Bigelow flavors. I suspect that they’ll probably like most all of them as I do.
