Because Everybody Needs a Variety of Bigelow Tea

Bigelow Tea is something that has been around my home for years. It’s always there when I need it most. No matter what is going on in my life, Bigelow Tea can see me through it. Whether it’s a celebration, a sad time or just some much needed rest… Bigelow Tea knows just how to speak to me. 

While I was growing up tea was tea. It was always cold tea. It was always black tea and it always had sugar in it. I wasn’t the biggest fan. I think it’s because I was young. Then I became an adult and I wanted to do adult things. For me, that included drinking tea. Seriously, I must have bought every flavor of Bigelow Tea that was available. This was many, many more years ago than I would like to admit but I remember bring my tea home just like it was yesterday. 

It excited me that I could have all these amazing flavors both hot and cold. I really wish I could remember every single one of those flavors I brought home that day but, like I said, it was too many years ago. Even though my youth tends to be slipping by, my love for tea has always remained. I remember thinking how super fancy I was drinking Earl Grey tea because ‘all the cool people were doing it.’

You might be wondering why (at such a young age) I was home drinking tea and not out being the social butterfly that some might think I am. Although I am quite the life of any party, I grew up fast. By the time I was 18 and moved out, I had a son that was almost three. So, while my friends were out partying and making wild and crazy memories, I was too busy relaxing at home with my son and a cup of tea after a long day at work. No pity is necessary, as I wouldn’t change one thing. It has made me who I am today. 

That little boy I used relax with while drinking Bigelow Tea is now going to be an adult this year. It doesn’t matter that I have two more children younger than him. What matters is that my baby isn’t going to be a baby anymore. He will be 18 in only six months. Soon after that, he will be venturing out on his own. He will need Bigelow Tea to make it through – or at least I hope he does. He is pretty calm so I definitely can see him enjoying tea. Rather than hoping he goes out and buys every flavor possible, I’m going to make him a gift basket from the heart that will be filled with more Bigelow Tea than he could ever imagine.  

Until then, I will cherish what time I have left of him being my baby and still living at home. Pretty soon, I will no longer be able to tell him what to do. Instead, I will be able to offer him advice and gift him lots of tea. He will get Vanilla Caramel Tea because that is his favorite combination. He will always have Lemon Lift Tea to pick him up when he is down. Pumpkin Spice will satisfy him during the fall and Cinnamon Stick will embrace him through the holidays. He will need Cozy Chamomile to relax and unwind from all of the adult responsibilities he will come across. Of course, he will get Earl Grey… because everybody has to have some Earl Grey. 



  1. You just made me want some tea! And it’s 1 a.m. in the morning. 😛 I’d be up all night, but it would taste great and be relaxing!
