Do you ever have one of those can’t-stop-won’t-stop days? You know the one – where you’re going, going, going all day long and when you finally get in for the night, your mind is still going a mile a minute… even when you just want to sleep? Well, that’s when you need a cup of Bigelow Tea Cozy Chamomile (or any chamomile flavor, for that matter). Chamomile is perhaps the most welcoming and inviting of all herbal teas. With its mellow, delicate and slightly floral notes, Chamomile offers an understated flavor that can put you in the mood for zzz’s. Hard to believe? Nah…
First off, here’s a question for you: Did you know chamomile is a flower? Yup. And in Bigelow Tea Chamomile flavors, the whole flower bud is used to create an exceptional flavor. Check out these pictures showing a field of Chamomile where this month (November), our trusted farmers will start to harvest each flower.
Chamomile is a dried daisy-like plant (as you can see), and for centuries, has been commonly used to make herbal infusions to serve various medicinal purposes. It’s used for its soothing and relaxing qualities, and folklore claims that it goes all the way back to Ancient Egypt where it was used in teas and grown for dedication to the sun god, Ra. Ooh, la, Ra!
The chamomile flowers in Bigelow’s Chamomile varieties come from high elevation gardens, handpicked and harvested at their peak. Smooth, full-bodied and sweet… just what you’re looking for in a comforting, relaxing treat at the end of the day. The entire drinking experience is like being tucked into bed and reading a good bedtime story.
If floral notes alone aren’t your thing, you’re in luck. Chamomile also blends beautifully with other flavors like citrus, mint, vanilla, lavender and even mango, making it soothing and refreshing at the same time! So you can treat yourself to all sorts of flavors while still enjoying the relaxing benefits of Chamomile. It’s a little flower that goes a long way!

Established in 2005, International Tea Day brings awareness to the tea workers’ contributions to the tea world and their working conditions. It has been observed annually on December 15. However, starting in 2020 it will take place on May 21. But, how exactly should one recognize it? Well, if you’re a business owner I would steer away from using this day as just another marketing opportunity. As someone in the marketing industry, I wanted to offer some other options that businesses, tea related or not, can take into consideration if they would like to honour International Tea Day.
