Tea Proudly! How Family-Owned Company Stays True to Its Roots
Tea has amazing health benefits, from treating acute conditions such as cold and flu to more broad perks of anti-aging and everyday wellness.

Bigelow Tea is a family-owned company that truly cares not only about the quality of the tea, but its employees and the environment.

The company also sends tea to U.S. troops deployed around the world (about 1 million bags a year). This tea is not sold to the public, and the box was designed by a friend of the family whose son had served three tours in Iraq and ended up taking his own life after returning home from overseas.

Bigelow Tea produces over 130 flavors, and offers options for iced and non-caffeinated varieties. Some teas even contain probiotics, which are essential for a healthy microbiome.

Listen in as Cindi Bigelow, third generation President and CEO of Bigelow Tea, joins host Lisa Davis to share all of tea's benefits, as well as more information about the #teaproudly movement and the charitable work the company is doing.
