Since moving south, I have become a Tea girl. It’s the southern thing to do! I actually live in the same area as America’s only Tea Plantation. Isn’t that cool? It is owned by the Bigelow family who bought the plantation ten years ago to save the land from real estate development.
Today we aren’t talking sweet tea though, but herbal tea. I want to share with you the benefits of drinking herbal tea and how it can help with a variety of symptoms. I first went to Walmart to check out the Bigelow Herbal Tea Collection and what a collection it is!
Why Herbal Tea?
Herbs have the power to heal. A natural remedy for your symptoms may be better than what the doctor ordered. Plus with it being caffeine free, it is a great flavor to add to your water to keep you hydrated. It has become my afternoon snack drink and the kids are picking it up too!
Red Raspberry – known as a Women’s Tea and our reproductive system. Great for menstrual cramps, hot flashes, mood swings (what are those?!), and morning sickness.
Peppermint – relaxation, soothing to the stomach for aches and pains, and is good for the skin produces fresh breath, treats headaches and sinuses, and also fights gingivitis.
Lemon Ginger Plus Probiotics – supports a healthy digestion tract and good for preventing nausea and vomiting, hence why people drink ginger ale when sick.
Cozy Chamomile – has tranquilizing effects to make you relaxed when you need a little help.
Sweet Dreams – Chamomile and Peppermint combined. Two relaxing herbs to help you drift off.
Orange & Spice – extra vitamin C and antioxidants. Calming effect which is great for high blood pressure.
Perfect Peach – yummy flavor added to other herbs. The tea with benefits and this one tastes like real peaches! Yum!
Bigelow not only has yummy tea, but they are conscious about making our environment a better place too. They call it SustainabiliTea and I want to share with you a few things they are doing to be green…
Energy Conservation efforts are being made by installing solar panels at corporate headquarters. Very cool!
Land Preservation & Protection – they’ve not only acquired the Charleston Tea Plantation, but 220 acres in New Hampshire too. Protecting them both from land development.
Zero Waste to Landfill – this is hard to do as you surely know. A huge accomplishment for a big company! Everything is recycled or composted or passed on to a Trash to Energy plants.
Member of the Ethical Tea Partnership – an organization that works with tea growers to establish methods for responsible conservation of the world’s tea fields and improve the lives of the people who work them.
Since I am a newer tea drinker, I really didn’t know much about it until I started researching and trying out the different varieties. I realized that tea can be a great addition to anyone’s day. To share my knowledge of herbal tea, I invited my neighbor over for tea time.
With my new tea kettle, I made hot tea with Bigelow’s Red Raspberry. Super yummy! I bought some shortbreads to go along with it and it all made for a great snack. After I drank my hot, I iced it down to have a cold. I wanted more! hee hee.
As we were chatting we came up with the idea of a Tea-cher gift!
In this handcrafted mug I found at Walmart for $3ish dollars (and they had other neat colors) I put in a pile of Bigelow Herbal Tea blends to try. I attached a ‘Thank You for being my Tea-cher!’ note and voila! Fast, easy, and inexpensive.
Do you need an end of school year gift?
If you need a bit more in your present, add in the cookies and tea kettle, which I found for $8ish at Walmart and is stainless steel. A deal!
Wow this post was filled of a lot of great stuff! I hope you learned something and have some new fun ideas for your Bigelow Herbal Tea!
