As I promised, this is a continuation from last week of my love affair with Bigelow Teas. And their newest addition to the tea party is Bigelow Benefits. And what positive benefits they are.
All the information you need is right here.
My dear friend, who has helped me with this big in so many ways, suggested I get to writing about these when I had the opportunity. Only been released since the beginning of this year it has been a slight challenge finding these beneficial teas in my local store.
With a few searches that turned up nothing, I didn’t give up. But I did take a step back and realize once again that if I’m going to find these teas I’m going to find them. Even more importantly, they’re going to find me. And that’s exactly what happened.
The Harris Teeter I visited near me carried all seven of this collection. No, I’m not going to do all seven. I will revisit the others not mentioned today in a future post. But today I’m going to focus on not two, but three of these that stood out to me the most.
And now they stand out to me even more after the fact.
Before I started I figured I was going to write in sequential order of the teas that I sipped. However, after thinking about it I’m going to go in reverse and it only makes sense thinking about it. Well I hope it does.
First (or the last one I sipped) is the Sleep (Chamomile & Lavender Herbal Tea).
This one quite simply knocked me out. What I had wanted to do was write about this as I was midway through this cup and be done with this post as I was finishing. That didn’t even come close. Whether it was me or the tea, I got tired and groggy almost instantaneously.
This is better than any sedative I’ve ever had and I don’t do sedatives. But you hopefully know what I mean. This tea is heavy and the chamomile and lavender are going to hit you without any warning. This might be my new cure for insomnia and lousy sleep. Not that I have a lot of the former. But my sleep patterns haven’t been the best. Maybe some of you can relate to that.
I got some of the best rest I’ve had in sometime and it’s good to know that the benefits this tea is claiming are valid. It may not be the most palatable tea but it did it’s job. The flavors may not appeal to some but I found it enjoyable enough to sip, and to know it aids in rest and relaxation means I will be having this again before bedtime for the foreseeable future. Not the most flavorful but it does its job.
The tea I did have second (and second here funny how that works out) is the Balance (Cinnamon & Blackberry Herbal Tea).
I absolutely love this. I had this in daylight and outdoors, and it added to that experience. This is about taking care of your sugar balance. And the universe knows I need that. Maybe the same situation applies to you. Cinnamon is one of the gifts from the universe and it works so perfectly here. There’s so many fruits and leaves of fruits that it’s like tasting a fruit salad in a cup. This is so my kind of tea. I would like to think that the combination of blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry (and everything else in between) is what I tasted and it was beautiful. This is so beautiful. This is a tea for all seasons. And so perfect for the time of year we’re in and what’s to come. I love this tea so much.
That’s why it’s hard to say if the Balance or the final (or first) tea I sampled is my favorite. It’s a horse race to be honest but the Radiate Beauty (Blueberry & Aloe Herbal Tea) set the table for a great trios tea tasting party. This was created to help with your skin, you glow, and just overall well-being. I felt so good drinking this. It could be the labels, the packaging, or the entire aura of all these teas. But there was something different. It carries a different energy than their teas you see in many stores. And I enjoy many a cup via their selections.
But these three, and especially the last two are some of their best. I could go on and on but if you come across the teas I highly recommend them.
I highly recommend giving them a go. I haven’t seen them everywhere other than at Harris Teeter, as I sense it’s so new it’s still being slowly introduced into stores. If I come across more locations, I will update this post as needed. At only $3 a box for an 18 count tea, it was well worth it. It felt like I was paying discounted prices for a regularly priced item.
You can also purchase these teas along with all their other teas online if you’re getting excited. I have a feeling some of you might be.
There’s four more teas (at least) from their Benefits collection that I have yet to try and when the time is right I will. But I feel like those (without even trying them), maybe unfairly, have a lot to live up to versus these awesome choice I made.
I highly recommend the Balance and Radiate Beauty for all aspects, and the Sleep for exactly that, good sleep.
More is coming and I look forward to talking about Bigelow in some way, shape, or form again in the coming weeks or months.
I could use a good night’s sleep!

I love Bigelow Teas, but I’ve never had their Benefits collection. The teas sound so good!
