My husband is a coffee lover. More accurately, he’s a coffee addict. I, on the other hand, am more of a tea lover. Oh sure, I enjoy a hot cup of coffee now and then (or a cold cup of coffee, right moms?), but tea hits the spot much better than a cup of joe. Although almost any tea will do – regular, decaf, fruit flavored, hot or cold – my go-to brand is Bigelow Tea.
I trace my loyalty back to my mother, who always seemed to have at least four varieties of Bigelow’s herbal teas on hand. Today, I enjoy it as jump-starter in the morning, but it also helps me unwind at the end of a long, hard day – which is just about every day!
What I like most about Bigelow Tea is the vast selection of teas they offer. One stop in the tea section at your local Walmart will show you what I’m talking about. See my whole shopping trip here.
I also like that the tea can be used in many different ways other than the usual hot and cold stress-reliever. Don’t believe me? Check out the “Recipes” section of the Bigelow website to find ways to use tea in beverages, dessert, snacks and main courses. When you combine the different flavors with the many different ways to enjoy them, there are hundreds of different reasons why Bigelow Tea is the right choice!
For the Green Tea Fruit Medley Smoothie, all you need is vanilla yogurt, mixed fruit, pineapple juice, and Bigelow Green Tea.
After combining the four key ingredients in the blender along with some ice (see recipe here), the smoothie is ready and so refreshing on a hot summer day!
The Fruit Tea Wigglers are very simple to make (see recipe here). Just use Red Raspberry Herb Tea (caffeine free for the kids), gelatin (choose a flavor that pairs well with the raspberry tea), and gummy worms.
After the gelatin is set, top with whipped cream and a few more gummy worms, and you’ve got a fun Fourth of July dessert the whole family will love!
