When you want the secrets to success, you ask the successful people. Cindi Bigelow, Bigelow Tea President, has been with Bigelow Tea for 25 years. With the family-owned business thriving so successfully, it’s no wonder Cindi was sought out by Ryan Kohnen for his new book, Young Professionals Guide to Success.
One theme of the book is “Soak It Up,”meaning that it’s important to learn and absorb as much knowledge as you can early in your career – through mentors, successful managers, as well as books, blogs and magazines.
Running a business with a track record of innovation and success is no easy task, but Cindi handles it all in stride. Author Kohnen was certainly sharp to interview and quote Cindi for this new book; her experience and management style will go a long way at helping young professionals to get on the right road to success.
We remember also that Cindi was recognized and honored by her own industry this year, being named one of the Top Women in Grocery for 2009. So you may want to pick up a copy of the book, and find out what advice Cindi has for young professionals, and perhaps some of the secrets to her success!

If you follow what gets said about prices each year, you would end up with the impression that the average price of tea has gone up. But more specifically the price at the most sought after regions (say Lao Banzhang, Bingdao) have gone completely through the roof. A lot of this narrative is anecdotal. Tales of rich Chinese buying up all the top-end product from X area. Part of it can also be seen when someone in the Sinosphere posts the maocha prices per location. These lists come with all sorts of contextual caveats, but the trend seems real. I don’t see any red flags to really doubt this storyline, but I was curious if it’d show up by looking at some of the data of prices on production by western facing vendors.
