Bigelow Tea is taking a moment to pause, reflect and prepare for 2015—and to share a few New Year’s resolutions as the Bigelow family gears up for the company’s 70th anniversary! So much has happened since Ruth Campbell Bigelow created “Constant Comment®” in her kitchen back in 1945. Yet Bigelow Tea is incredibly proud to have remained a family-owned and operated business committed to blending and packaging the highest quality teas right here in the United States of America.
Here’s a look at the ways third-generation President and CEO Cindi Bigelow and her staff will keep the values that guided Ruth—dedication to America, quality and family—at the forefront of their mission in 2015:
Share the Bigelow Family’s Story and Passion for Tea – The Mobile Tea Bar is crisscrossing the country to inspire tea drinkers new and old with free fresh-brewed tea, fun tea facts and a comfy spot to learn about Bigelow family lore. Check the schedule to see when the #bigteabar will arrive in a community near you!
Support the Troops – Tea for the Troops is going strong after several years and nearly 4 million tea bags sent to troops serving in Germany, Iraq, Afghanistan and Korea. It’s Bigelow Tea’s way of thanking the men and women who protect and serve the USA as a portion of the proceeds from the sales of our three American Breakfast teas goes to support our troops.
Brew Up New Teas with the Finest Ingredients – Bigelow Tea’s master tea blenders are always experimenting with new flavors, and hopefully you’ve had a chance to try the latest: Salted Caramel black tea, and Peppermint Bark and Chamomile Vanilla herbal teas. Stay tuned for more!
Happy tea drinking in 2015 and beyond!

The tea market and the industry have made it clear that transparency is the way of the future – but what is transparency? I have been building a culture of transparency in the agriculture supply chain since 2010. At first I was a lone ranger; but now I see almost … Continue reading
Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.
THE SECRET SALCE BEHIND FUND SELECTION
Two Types of Major College scholarships
Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).
The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
