Bigelow Tea Adds Flavor Excitement to the Holiday Season

Salted Caramel and Peppermint Bark put the pleasure of the Holidays into an irresistible cup of Bigelow Tea!

Fairfield, CT — The Bigelow Tea family, renowned for three generations for their tea blending craftsmanship, is delighted to add scrumptious new teas to its ever-popular seasonal tea line that are perfect for holiday enjoyment, and on target with today’s consumer taste trends.

In addition to Pumpkin Spice Tea and Apple Cider Herbal Tea, Bigelow’s Harvest line now includes:

Salted Caramel Tea!

Reflecting the latest confectionary trend of melding a salty note to rich buttery caramel, all-natural Bigelow Salted Caramel Tea captures all the appeal of this popular, full-bodied-caramel flavor combination. To achieve its tantalizing flavor profile, the expert American tea blenders at Bigelow Tea have combined hand-picked black tea with natural caramel and salt flavors. Amazingly, for a beverage so loaded with indulgent flavor, Salted Caramel Tea has zero calories and no sodium for a sublime, guilt-free indulgence.

Adding zest to the Bigelow’s already delicious Holiday line of Eggnogg’n® Tea and Ginger Snappish® Herbal Tea, is this refreshing new offering:

Peppermint Bark Herbal Tea!

As fans of peppermint bark candy know, peppermint and chocolate make a wonderfully refreshing flavor combination that is truly irresistible! Now, consumers can enjoy this delicious Holiday favorite – a hallmark of season, in a whole new way. Bigelow Peppermint Bark Herbal Tea is an all-natural herbal tea that is decadently rich in chocolaty flavor with a cool, fresh minty finish. Hot and cool at the same time, it makes a perfect treat to warm body and soul on a cool day. Here’s another reason to celebrate. This caffeine-free treat has zero calories.

“We are truly thrilled to offer these richly flavorful teas to the growing world of tea drinkers,” says Cindi Bigelow, 3rd generation president and CEO of the family-owned company. “Everyone who has tried them absolutely loves the comfort and pleasure of these tempting seasonal tea treats. They’re two of the holidays’ favorite flavors.  Pure enjoyment  – with no calories and no guilt!”

Protective Packaging

True to tradition, both new flavors are packaged in individually wrapped tea bags in Bigelow’s signature foil pouch to protect them from air, moisture and surrounding aromas, to keep the tea as fresh and flavorful as the day it was blended. It’s easy to tuck a few into a pocket or handbag to enjoy the fresh, luscious flavor anywhere, anytime throughout the busy holidays.

Look for Bigelow Harvest and Holiday Teas in free-standing floor shippers at retailers starting in October.  They will also be available at bigelowtea.com.

“We invite you to try our new teas” says Cindi Bigelow. “Not only are they a satisfying pleasure that you’ll want to enjoy often, they make wonderful gifts for family, friends, colleagues, teachers – anyone you think deserves a holiday treat. Pop them in a gift bag with a special mug and spread the joy!”

About Bigelow Tea Company

Based in Fairfield, CT and 100% family owned, the Bigelow Tea Company pioneered the specialty tea category 70 years ago. The three-generational company takes pride in its heritage and successful growth from a one-product, entrepreneurial venture into America’s leading specialty tea company. Producing 1.7 billion tea bags annually, the Bigelow Tea line includes more than 130 varieties of Flavored, Traditional, Green, Organic, Herbal, Decaffeinated and Iced teas – including its flagship specialty tea flavor, “Constant Comment®,” an all-time American favorite.

In 2003, the company purchased and restored the Charleston Tea Plantation, an American tea plantation located on Wadmalaw Island, just south of Charleston, South Carolina, that cultivates hundreds of thousands of tea bushes that are descendants of ancestral Camellia sinensis bushes brought from China in 1888.  The Charleston Tea Plantation has become a “must see” destination for more than 70,000 travelers from around the world who visit annually to learn how tea is grown and harvested, and sample products made from tea grown on the premises.
