Two of America’s all-time favorites – now in limited edition blended teas!
Fairfield, CT — Girl Scout Cookies® are high on the list of America’s favorite treats. Now the Bigelow Tea family is pleased to announce two delicious new tea flavors inspired by Girl Scout Cookies: Thin Mints® and Caramel & Coconut.
These delicious teas are made possible by a licensing arrangement with Girl Scouts of the USA® and combine the renowned flavor blending expertise of the Bigelow Tea Company with the time-honored exciting Girl Scout Cookie flavors we all know and love.
Timed to coincide with Bigelow Tea’s 70th Anniversary celebration – and traditional Girl Scout Cookie season, these irresistible tea flavors will be available for a limited time only.
“Once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout,” enthuses Cindi Bigelow, the company’s third-generation President & CEO. “As a proud Girl Scout alumna, our two new tea temptations reflect the Bigelow Tea blenders’ never-ending quest to delight consumers with up-to-the-minute flavor innovations in a way that’s very special to me. These tea flavors, in addition to being a part of the Bigelow quality tradition, will extend the enjoyment of Girl Scout Cookies into a new category, with an inspired beverage that warms body and soul and brings a smile to your face!”
A Zero-Calorie ‘Indulgence’
These new teas are a total taste immersion. Each blend delivers smooth, indulgent taste with a wonderfully rich finish – amazingly, at zero calories each.
Bigelow Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® Herbal Tea:
This caffeine free tea delivers the perfectly balanced mint and chocolate flavor of the Girl Scouts’ famous Thin Mints cookies. The flavor profile is as rich and refreshing as the chocolaty mint cookies that have become an all-time American favorite. This herbal formula is deliciously relaxing.
Bigelow Girl Scouts® Caramel & Coconut Black Tea:
This superb black tea blend offers a delectable taste combination of luscious caramel and coconut. Like the Girl Scout Cookie that inspired it, this tea is a delightfully satisfying treat – a little reward to enjoy during a busy day. Its black tea content offers a dash of energy.
Both blends come in boxes of 20 individually wrapped tea bags, presented in foil pouches that ensure flavorful freshness. These are gluten-free, sugar-free and Kosher-certified – making them a welcome treat for people with dietary restrictions. These are produced according to the Bigelow family’s planet-conscious principles of SustainabiliTEA.
Bigelow’s new Girl Scout Cookie-inspired teas can be found on free-standing displays at grocery stores nationwide and at Amazon.com beginning in March. In-store, the MSRP is $3.99 per 20-bag box.
Whether you enjoy these delightfully appealing teas on their own or alongside a plate of cookies, Bigelow Tea’s new Girl Scout Cookie flavor blends are a treat not to be missed.
