Spring is here…and what a winter it has been. When I look back over the last year, I am very proud of the work this company has done. We have had positive growth in all areas of business, we have introduced some of the (if not the) best tasting new teas in the market…Green Tea with Pomegranate, Green Tea with Blueberry, Spiced Chai, Spiced Chai Decaf, Chai Green, Jasmine Green, Green Organic and Green Decaf Organic (wait to hear about our newest flavors for next fall-start warming up the tea kettle), we have really focused on becoming a more environmentally friendly organization with the biggest investment being close to $2million dollars for solar panels for our corporate headquarters, but it doesn’t stop there. We have every department, every plant, every person contributing to this cause. Everyone is thinking about how they can help reduce paper, reduce waste, improve efficiencies throughout the entire organization. In addition to doing our part to support the environment, we have also continued to focus on supporting the communities in which we operate. Just one example is our annual Bigelow Tea Challenge, last September we raised close to $50,000 for local charities. This June, we are having a Bigelow Tea day to help build a home in Bridgeport. The list of things the employees participate in is mind boggling.
Yes, I look back over the last year and I am proud. Great employees, great teas and lots of positive energy. Yes Spring is here, new flowers, lots of buds, and all kinds of new ideas to keep up the momentum that I am delighted to be a part of in this company.

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.
