Bigelow Tea

201 Black Rock Turnpike
Fairfield, CT 06825
Family tea blenders since 1945, members of the Bigelow family are still the inspiration behind all Bigelow teas -- from the selection of the finest ingredients to the careful blending and crafting of each of our more than 120 flavors of specialty teas. Tea is their passion. For three generations, the Bigelow family has been dedicated to creating and blending world class teas, insisting on 26 quality check points for every batch of tea that’s produced.  To ensure Bigelow’s fresh, pristine flavor each and every time you brew, their tea bags are individually wrapped in foil pouches to shield delicate tea leaves from air, moisture and surrounding aromas, locking in flavor and freshness. Whether you take them along in your pocket or purse, or enjoy them at home, the result is self-evident every time you open a pouch of Bigelow tea and take a whiff and brew up a cup. And, in keeping with their commitment to “green manufacturing,” the rest of the packaging – box, strings, tags and tea bags – is completely recyclable.
